View Full Version : Welcome Back! (4/28/21)

Dear Regulars,

We are pleased to welcome you back to Anthrogenica, following our three days of downtime secondary to a scheduled major security upgrade, which we had disclosed in advance (link (https://anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?17762-Scheduled-Downtime-Notice-Thread&p=768342&viewfull=1#post768342)).

Our upgrades - Which included the routing of all forum traffic through multiple firewalls, alongside other anti-malware and malicious script blocking measures - Were (eventually) successfully implemented.
It is our hope that the maximization of automated anti-bot measures will result in a return to the previously-seamless forum experience that was had prior to our implementation of CloudFlare in 2019.
We have scheduled a review of these changes for a future date, and hope to remove the CAPTCHA prompts for good at that stage.

We are aware of one very minor post-upgrade bug, which we'll try to address across today.
Nonetheless, we have opened a thread for members to inform us of anything else that you may discover (link (https://anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?23681-Post-Upgrade-Bug-Reporting-Thread-(4-28-21)&p=768534#post768534)).

These upgrades were only possible due to the financial contributions of our members, who have supported Anthrogenica through either Paid Subscriptions (https://anthrogenica.com/payments.php) or Donations (https://anthrogenica.com/misc.php?do=donate). We continue to thank all of you who've been so generous towards our platform.
Further security and functionality upgrades are planned for the coming weeks and months ahead - If any of our members are reading this and have yet to contribute to our community's development and upkeep, but would like to, please refer to our Sustainability Model (https://anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?7757-Anthrogenica-Sustainability-amp-Your-Support) thread.

Anthrogenica is entirely community-funded - Any contributions at any time are always appreciated by our team and the community at large - You're the reason we're here. :)

Thank you for your time.
