We are still under attack, and they're constantly rotating IP addresses all from Amazon Cloudfront apparently, but luckily our cloudflare is blocking most of it as they don't have our real IP this time.

We had to turn the cloudflare security settings up a little so it may cause some people using the android app to be unable to connect. If you experience this, please let us know here, as we're having to experiment with the DDOS settings a bit to keep the site from being overwhelmed by the attack but still remain open for everyone to use.

Thanks everyone.

It's in the works. We have to buy another server and set it up to be a proxy media server, it's complex so give us a bit.

Is this place able to handle over 1k-2k-3k people browsing and posting at once?

Yes easily. It can theoretically scale to the same size of reddit. We can do 30k unique visitors a day no problem with our current setup

As long as it's not like Discord's use of Google Captcha. which I get everytime I have a IP address change, let along spending 15+ minutes trying to pass Google Captcha, which tends to time out causing me giving up. :P

Sucks people have no lives and will attack sites that don't share the same opinion.

Yeah it shouldn't be that onerous. Just once when you sign up, and then every time you post until you get one vote from someone else (but we might turn this second part off eventually). So once you get the username and one vote from someone else you should be good

Ah, sounds good. :) This makes sense, unlike what Discord does.

BTW, that's the reason I don't use Discord anymore, simply because of how they set Captcha up.

I haven't had the need to create a new account since this was implemented, but I really hope you avoided Google©® reCAPTCHA™.
Giving their AI more free slave labor would be a very sad thing.

No we have our own proprietary captcha system
