There seems to be an exceptionally large number of spambots appearing since the last update.

Yep. Woogie point this out in the mod forum. It's gone mental right now. I've lost count of how many bans I've thrown out in the last few days.

The SSL should work again now without giving a warning.

 

Anyone reading this - please go to https://www.guitarzone.com/forum/ and tell me if you see a security warning or not. You should NOT see one anymore. Note the httpS:, not http:

 

Thanks, :guitar:

So I've been getting this SSL warning for a few days now when I attempt to sign in. I didn't get it today so I assume the problem has been fixed.

I'm getting it every so often too. The site is very unstable lately, with pages not loading a lot of the time.

my opinion is that possibly we don't donate enough money.. somebody has to pay for all this bandwidth..

poor rob. shouldering his burden all alone, with also that 10 dollars I donated a few weeks ago and will likely donate again in a few weeks.

I've donated a few quid here and there. But yeah you could be right. It seems the advertising alone isn't enough. Everyone uses adblocker anyway.
