When I logged on this morning via my iPhone, after entering my userid and password I got a message: "System Message - The forum failed to connect to Tapatalk servers and some features might not work properly. Please contact your site admin to resolve this issue."

I seem to get logged in OK, haven't noticed anything missing.

(Laptop login works good. No extraneous messages or issues.)

Thanks for the explanation.

When I tried logging on yesterday evening I got that strange screen telling me to wait a few minutes while things were being checked!

Not being very familiar with these things, and being of a cautious nature, I immediately shut down the laptop in case I had been diverted to some other website that was about to mess with my computer!

Didn't get the screen this am when logging on, but if I do get it again, now I will know it is ok!

Brian.

Couldn't get in yesterday, with various messages and reports that the website was offline, but when I went on my IPad to AirForums thru Safari this morning, it let me right in, already logged in and all.

Just letting folks know what is working.

Thank you all for your hard work in keeping this site safe and functioning.

Hard to believe how much I missed you/this site.

As someone with twenty years of technical information security experience for a major US financial, and whose seen such threats in the past, I want to commend the moderator and site technical teams for their efforts and applaud the success on handling the issue.

While I understand you have a full technical resource team within the forums base application environment to help, I do also want to offer any open/free advice or review; if you would care for it. Feel free to PM me for personal contact information if so.

Log on problems

Like, Wingeezer, I immediately logged off thinking something was VERY wrong with this site.
No problem at noon logging on.
Thank you Janet and your team.

I agree with 'bbdo'. I recently retired after 30 years in the enterprise IT space. Your solution is an overkill and should never slow down your users for that matter, unless your are under attack.

I don't know if it's because I use Mac OS or I'm just lucky but, I haven't experienced any problems on this or the several other forums I frequent. Thank you moderators for your diligence and hard work!

Thanks, mods and techs, for keeping this site running.

Quite a few rv-related sites have suffered DDOS attacks in recent weeks. I frequent several general and several brand-specific forums, and all but two have had problems in the past couple of weeks. One of them is still a bit "under the weather" but expects a full recovery soon.

Patience is certainly called for.

Is this happening again, Janet? The site has been out on and off for the last day, and seems very slow this morning. Have you imposed flood control measures?

Thanks,

Peter

We have had server problems over the past 12 hours or so and they continue. We are working on this but expect there may be some more down time today. That said, there is no DDOS or other malicious activity - we just have some hardware problems. Thanks for your patience.
