Over the past week we have been rolling out some patches to fix the issues with the shoutbox, and attempted accounts in the forum. this has resulted in a few number of pages being broken, in particular the Gallery and Wiki.

Hopefully todays patch has fixed these issues. Hopefully with some more testing we will add back logging in for the forum.

To give people an Idea of the volume of spam that we got on the shoutbox over the last 3 weeks. we managed to block 13,000 messages. 397 got through.

Since the first change to shoutbox on sunday, we are filtering out about 2000 spams messages a day.


We are also filtering attacks against the forum that is being hit with over 5000 attempted account creations everyday. Out of those 1200 accounts where created successfully . We have had no attempts since we removed the ability to login.

The login methods and security have been completely re-written and should be ready by this sunday.

The Patch to fix the spam in the shoutbox, has done the job, Unfortunatly this has lead to an issue with the db not responding sometimes. 

I am working on this but as I am not sure what is causing the issue, and I am unable to replicate the error in the test envoiroment, I do not as yet have a solution.

If you have this Issue and are able to could you please sent me the URL that this occured at it i.e.  http://terinu.com/Discussion/Forum , to admin@terinu.com this would be greatly appreciated. This error appears in my error log but it does not give me the URL that caused it.

I will update this post when I have a solution

Thanks for all the hard work you've put into keeping the site up, Veg. We really all appreciate it, even if we don't tell you often enough.
