Captcha to Access Forum?

Verification pages actually track a ridiculous amount of things. It could be as simple as whether you have the right cookies to what pages you have been to what link you used to get there. Some even track mouse wiggling to look for human-like wiggles.

The browser challenges that have been happening over the last 8 hours are temporary and were enabled in part of a series of steps we took to mitigate several active attacks against our services, with the latest targeting the forums. We ask and thank you for your patience and understanding as we take these necessary steps to ensure that our services remain online and stable.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the update, Cipher. 

 

Like I said, if we are under attack then you need to raise shields and call "BATTLE STATIONS!"

Yes; thanks Homecoming Team.  As a response to a DDoS, then this is a very small inconvenience.  I was just concerned that it may have been the first step to my browser no longer being supported.

I've seen one, after several verification pages.

Please, if you feel the need to shoot down someone's suggestion by saying "It's not worth the devs time," don't. The devs are big boys and girls and can determine for themselves what is or is not worth their time, they don't need you to do it.

Cloudflare hosting.  Why am I not surprised?

 

90+ times out of 100, when a website craps out on me Cloudflare is the middleman.  They love to pass the blame on to the individual websites they host, but they're the common thread ...

Cloudflare isn't a host

 

You're mixing up causation and correlation. Websites that have, for lack of a better term, issues (due to extreme demand or malicious activity) will employ Cloudflare to help mitigate them, but it's not perfect and won't resolve everything, so you'll still see problems sometimes. Very rarely is Cloudflare actually the cause of any problem, but as with all technology it does very occasionally fail.

 

If you don't like it, blame the kids and their DDoS attacks, not Cloudflare.

But Jimmy, think of the children!
