    Re: RS Site outage 20th March 2013

    Glad to see the site back up again. When I clicked on this thread just a minute or so ago it went to the same error messages I was getting yesterday. Kinda hit and miss right now but mostly hit so that is good and progress is being made.
    If its listed at the Talk Gold ponzi and crime forum its a SCAM.

    Oh to be young and know how all this stuff works...LOL....

    Maybe when Jason is done fixing the forum he could teach me how to use this new phone I just got given....Called a "smart phone"...Should be called an "anti older person phone" IMO....

    Your thoughts/opinions?

    I'm using my phone. That could account for speed. Duh!

    I did implement some caching that should speed things up.

    Glad it's worked!

    If you message me your IPs I'll be able to bypass them through some of our security.

    Hi okosh,

    I know what you mean, I bought the wife one last month because she lost her mobile phone and I did the usual calling the number to see if we could hear it ringing and couldn't she then informed me that the battery could be flat as it had been beeping that painful charge me tone!

    She did try using the new phone but she kept scrolling too far or not enough to find her contacts, then she found the phone she had lost in a different handbagso she now has the original phone and is happy. So who has the new smartphone? I rest my case!

    Note to Jason I have just tried to add a hyperlink and the page froze?
    Just a quick pointer if any of you use a smartphone you can access RS via your phone scroll to the footer and select the dropdown menu --RS Main Style and choose between
    -- Mobile Site Premium
    -- Default Mobile Style
    This will then enable you to view the site and read and answer posts via your smartphone!

    Kind Regards
    John.

    Great stuff Jason. Banners Broker and other ponzis must be cursing the day they met you and you met Real Scam.

    Hi John,
    Here in Aus the phone is free when you go onto a new phone contract....That's how I got the phone....Kid helping me in the store said you push this button for email, that button for shopping, this button for texting, that button for this, this button for that and here is the button for facebook....I then asked, "but is there a button for when I want to make a phone call??"....LOL....

    ATM, all incoming logins are being re routed through Cloudfare as part of the DDoS protection, so we're only seeing Cloudfare I.P.s

    Hear, hear!

    And I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Scam dot com and its owner, George 'The Scammers Best Friend' Dranichak, for spinelessly deleting their Banners Broker thread (among many, many others). Were it not for that, Jason wouldn't be here.

    Nice one, George!

    Guess I'll just have to live with it. I'm on an aircard and every time I fire up it's a new IP. at least I can get in but it's slower than dumb Dora, ( you know, the girl that was so slo-o-o-w that she sat on a pin when she was 15, but didn't feel the p***k till she was 22...!)
    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!

    Re: RS Site outage 20th March 2013

    Working good for me now, and no Cloudfare this session?
    Have been checking the site on and off during the day, but seems to be working at 'normal' pace for the moment. No bugs that I can see.

    I don't understand the point of a DDoS on a site like this, what does it achieve? Some downtime for a day or three then life goes on as normal.
    Presumably they were hoping the RS hosts would get annoyed, and boot the site off their servers.

    Cloudfare isn't a cheap service - if RS needs contributions to help pay any costs, I'm sure there would be no shortage of people willing to donate a bit via Paypal (as long as this isn't some sort of scam!)...

    Hypanor,

    Cloudflare is still protecting the site.
    Just amended some security settings and some other things (not willing to go into here!) to allow for better navigation and more security.

    Don't worry about Cloudflare being a scam - some of the big names use their services (Metallica) being one. Haha!

    That is a bad choice for donation.Don't you know that paypal is terrible for online transaction?Donations should be made to either STP,Liberty Reserve or the very least Payza.Should Realscam wisen up and accept bitcoin, that would be good as well.Of course you need send your notarised id, fingerprints and signature and give realscam access to your bank accounts and credit cards in order for Realscam to check if you can afford to donate.

    Oh yeah , congrats to Poyol for being made admin.
