There has been a problem with Proboards this morning which has resulted in our forum not loading or loading very slowly, the issue is with Proboards themselves and they are dealing with it as we speak.
Message from Craig @ Proboards support
Ok. Just an update. Firstly, there is no problem with the servers themselves, and all data is fine.
The problem is, unfortunately, a DDOS attack on our servers. This is when someone takes it upon themselves to flood a server/service with illegitimate requests [so like when you request a page to load but this is on a scale where they are sending multiple requests at the same time to flood the servers so the legitimate requests don't go through].
This is a nuisance of the internet, and unfortunately, something which can be done, and all services experience from time to time. We can only deal with them when they occur.
Martyn has been working on the issue since i posted for the first time in this topic, and has been able to bottleneck their attack and allow more legitimate requests through, which is why you can sometimes load the page at the moment.
Hopefully we will have this fully resolved soon, and can only apologise again for the inconvenience.
It will be resolved soon, but please dont keep hitting refresh as this will only aggravate the problem.
I will update on here when we have a solution.
