View Full Version : Interstitial Page Activation (01/05/21)

Dear Members,

Please be advised that we have temporarily implemented the highest security settings on CloudFlare following our conclusion that AG's currently experiencing a mild DDoS attempt.

Although our current default settings from August (https://anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?21345-We-re-Back!-(08-14-20)) have near-fully offset the potential burden this particular attempt might've brought on our server, we're aiming to reduce that residual, additional bandwidth consumption even further.

This does mean that we'll all be viewing the (rather annoying) interstitial page for at least a few days.

We apologize for the inconvenience and, in the event that you find the new settings too off-putting, we recommend revisiting the site sometime during the weekend, as we'll perform another review later in the week.

Thank you for your attention and for your continued trust in our administration.

Dear Community,

As advised on Tuesday, we have just reviewed the situation and are happy to step AG back down to the previous CloudFlare security setting.

The interstitial page will no longer be appearing for any members and only non-members should be viewing any CAPTCHA's.

As ever, if you're experiencing any issues relating to our implementation of CloudFlare, please report them here to us (https://anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?21346-CloudFlare-Bug-Reporting-Thread-(08-14-20)) and we'll do our best to correct any bugs.

Thanks all for your time and wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!

Dear Community,

Please be advised that we've just reactivated the interstitial pages once more as a precautionary measure.

We expect this to be in place for another few days - Those who would prefer viewing the site without encountering these are best-placed to check in with us on Monday.

Thanks all for your time, have a great weekend ahead!
