Yes, I have thought it may have to go that route. Let us know of how we can help with funding. And don't forget to ask if there is also a way we can return to not having to sign in each time... :teehee:


Thanks...I will...Its more of a timing issue because of taking care of my mom.

Signing in is probably a cookie issue..like I've stated before. I think its a matter of rewriting the cookie path...which I'm not comfortable doing even though its probably easy..

Here's an explanation of what's been going on today. So sorry for the inconvenience.

I posted this on BCAW Facebook.

    "To all registered members and visitors of the BCAW forum.
    The reason the forum was down for awhile is because we were bombarded with a huge number of the claudebot. Its a brand new bot, and we weren't the only forum to be inundated today..and its invasion will probably continue into the future. Currently, it is so massive, IT hasn't caught up yet.

    Anyway...with the help of Support (well, kinda) I wrote some code to block it..hahahahahaha. Its back to the drawing board as I have probably done something wrong and the code is not working. Therefore, I have manually blocked 1000's of IP addresses. (I won't bore you with how.) The forum has gone from almost 500 of these things down to 34. These bots are overloading forums like ours to where members cannot log in and visitors cannot browse.

    If by chance, I have blocked "you" by mistake, please leave me a message in this group or via private message and I will try and figure out "who you are" and unblock you...
    Thanks for your patience!!
