What’s Going On With The KillTheCan.org Forums?

Forum IssuesIf you’re a member of our community, you’re certainly aware that our forums have been having quite a few issues recently.  Without going into too many technical details I wanted to let you know what’s going on and what’s being done to mitigate the issues.  This post will be updated as further information is available.

What’s Going On With The Forums

Our forums are hosted by a company called Zetaboards. www.zetaboards.com  They’ve been with this company since the site’s inception in November of 2006. Through the years Zeta has made several upgrades and they’ve got several more in their development pipeline including an upgraded mobile experience, TapaTalk integration, etc.  In recent weeks, ZetaBoards have been attacked by a hacker attempting to take down their servers. This type of attack is known as a DDOS or Denial-Of-Service attack.

This attack is NOT specific to KillTheCan.org and is affecting all users on a few of ZetaBoards servers.

What’s Being Done

ZetaBoards is working around the clock to restore access to its servers. They’re working on several different issues and are taking drastic measures to not only deal with this attack but to ensure that they don’t continue in the future.

For our part, we want to make sure that people still have a place to post roll on a daily basis and give their promise to their fellow KTC brothers and sisters for that added accountability that makes our site so successful. Until further notice, we will have a daily roll call post here on the blog.  Simply leave a comment with your forum name, days and quit group.

Thank you for your patience as we work through these issues.

At some point do we start looking elsewhere for this service? I am sure a quick fund raiser would make it painless money wise and plenty of us owe a lot to you single digit member numbers.

I never figured it would be easy hence the fundraiser to pay a herd of nerds to do it right and use a more reliable host. If Zeta is getting the problem fixed, never mind. The easy way to fix this is 3 rounds center mass to those causing the problem.
