Glad to hear everything is okay now. Tristan, its great to hear you were able to fix this by tweaking your security settings. Glad there was no data loss. Not much to add besides - we love ya Tristan! <3 :wee: <3

Super glad you were able to do this as quickly as you did (even if I get impatient from waiting a single hour). YOU did great! :D :wave:

EDIT: One of the click threads (the one ending in #57 I think) is missing. There are 2 instead of 3 click threads under raindeer games. It might have nothing to do with anything, just mentioning it.

2nd Edit: Thank you ShaiNeko for making that new thread. Wish I'd stayed at the computer now!

I know I mentioned hat Subeta got DOS attacked. And I think Soch mentioned Howrse getting attacked.


Marvel Horse. Which is still down and no answer on why on their Twitter. :derp: I really liked their art too.

Tristan, you said someone was using a botnet to click eggs on Twitter that had the hashtag #magistream. You disabled it or blocked it, correct? Could it be whoever was doing that, trying to take revenge?
If you see me posting nonsense, give me a smack and tell me to go write.

Someone from Russia tried to do that to one of our sites. We stopped them dead in their tracks. They kept trying for months after that. They were never successful... thank goodness. :srs:

True, the "click the person above you" thread has vanished.

That was just mean. .___. Seriously, why would somebody do that to a nice, fun and happy site? I hate all these people who think all pet sites make tons of money and stuff... it's ridiculous.
We're all so glad the site's back on track! Thanks for solving this problem quickly <3

It is obviously some new pet site that doesn't want a rival as formidable as MS. :yarly: /hides from incoming brix

Someone hasn't got anything better to do, it seems. Why aren't they aiming bigger? Livejournal seems to be an incredibly easy target for DDoSing, if the frequency at which it happens is anything to go by.
