Is a bummer but atleast i'm still actively supporting UT99. I'm actually planning on making all text on this forum Unreal font format. And honestly sadly I never ever had total control over any of my forums till now.

There's a trick question in the registration process!

I've never played with you guys, just submitted map-edits I thought you'd like to play. I don't know the answer to the registration question!!

Holding you to that, but happy to re-register. Post the link brother. BTW, your confirmation question makes no sense so I can't complete registration.

Really?
I could register in one go.
Just fill in the blank space (the underlined emptiness) ...or does everybody have a different question?

Edit---------------------
ohhhh ... that was sarcasm ...because of EvilGrins. Now I get it :wtf:

I made that fill in the blank too easy to answer. I'll have to get diego to make a more interesting Q&A.

http://forum.ultimateut.tk/ is down again.

http://riip.freeforums.org/portal.php keeps re-directing to a political discussion forum.

https://www.unrealsurvivors.com/ appears to either have been hacked or has been swarmed by a spambot.

Tried to login today when I got a notice my IP had been locked out.

What brought that on?!?

Hi all

Regarding http://www.unrealsurvivors.com, its hosted free by a friend of mine.
Recently the spam from mainly Russian based IP's has increased and caused some issues.

He placed some sort of cloud security on the site and it ended up banning a load balancer which in turn banned everyone. :loool:

Thank you to those have messaged and emailed me. I am actually pleased that the forums were missed :D

The problem is now supposedly fixed.
Please could I ask you to try logging again? You may need to clear cached data but logins should work now.
Please report any further problems here.

The forums were also updated to the latest version but in doing so restored the original out of the box look.
I'll have SSH access to it soon so that I can make cosmetic changes and other improvements in time.

Thanks again for posting here and for the support :)

Piley
