FYI EVERYONE -- > our server has been under  ton of ddos attacks since Christmas Day. This is why you may have been experiencing issues connecting to the site. Due to this, it may be later tonight or tomorrow for the character creation to go live. The team is working as hard as we can to get everything up and finalized!

 

Thanks for understanding :)

No worries. Thanks so much for all your hard work.

So this is our fault? Too many people on the server?

 

 

No its caused by someone deliberately making hundreds of computers call for a website at the same time. It wouldn't be from regular network traffic. It's someone being childish and thinking they are a hacker just because they can bring a website down for a few minutes.

 

Exactly. It's a malicious attack and was not just on NerdFitness, but all sites that use our server. It has nothing to do with us and we most likely weren't the target. This is the same thing that brought down the Playstation network down last christmas. We use a great server that's known for being good against these, so this was most likely more than a single person. Bunch of people with nothing better to do with their time. Really frustrating that this is what people choose to do with their time.

Thank you both for clarifying. I've learned something new. And am now peeved about this info. I hope their computer(s) crash...and their cooling fans malfunction!

ddos-ing sucks.  It's put a cramp on more than a few things I take part in.  I feel your pain on this one.  

 

I also want to echo the others saying thank you for all your hard work!!  Everything sounds fantastic so far!

Oh, so you're saying we shouldn't blame Planet Fitness, Weight Watchers, and Jenny Craig for trying to bring down a site that actually gets results for people, thereby reducing their customer base?

It's alive

 

I like the set up :)

One question though: how do I link my profile there to my profile here? I've already put the public button 'on'.

 

We're still fixing the final issues with it, and will have full discussions and FAQ's and help pages once it's ready. 

 

Deleting all comments about it for now to avoid confusion.

Is there going to be a way for Rebels to choose a different "class" picture, since there are no Rebel-specific ones? Right now, it seems to default to displaying the male Warrior pic.

 

It is not announced yet, and not ready yet, and many questions will be answered once it is.

 

Please wait until an announcement comes from Team NF.

Well,  here we have Nerd Superheroes. It makes sense that we'd have to deal with Nerd Supervillains from time to time. :lol:

 

We'll wait as long as it takes. No worries. Thanks for doing so much for us! :)

The narrative in my head will be that the Empire is coming after us now that Steve has fired a shot over its bow with the book.

Is there anything the community can do to help with the server troubles?  Maybe a quick collection to cover the costs to move to a new/unaffected server?

I hope I'm not overstepping here, but if I made a thread or two in the Rebel forum (like a General Chat thread and a "if you're new and confused, ask questions here and older Rebels can try to answer them" thing), could someone sticky them until you've sorted out the guild leader situation and someone takes over? I don't know how far along you are with that and I'm sure there's been a million other things needing your focus recently, but it doesn't hurt to ask, right?
