    Anybody notice that forum is now "Private" what happened to "open as an educational site for the whole world"?

    Or is this just for the maintenance?

    That is mostly the same from a message Slipdigit sent me after he locked a thread I made for using profanity: the 3 letter A word.

    it is commonality to many WW2 forums to keep spammers out. If you are a real human being and are serious about posting questions/answers on a forum(s) ........... then join up, other than that, too bad

    well just think we have alot of discussion threads on this particular forum which could have lead to such stuff happening so there you go a couple of people have said this already the forum is getting overloaded.

    Certain questions can only be answered by human beings, not softwafe called spambots who register on forum to post spammed messages or steal data, such as emails and send spams to others. If you ask certains question which people should be able to answer, you keep the spambots away , at least for a while.

    I'll illuminate the issue. :confused:

    Right now the server is busy, too busy actually. Our server, while extremely powerful cannot deal with thousands of people all visiting at once. To continue to serve the membership I have maintained full access to all fully registered Rogues, but unregistered visitors can only see the front page. This is a temporary measure put in place until we get an even better server. As long as you are registered, nothing will seem different to to you at all, which is why some of you were confused.

    I like this Typo.
    Can we now refer to spammers as 'The Softwaffe'? :D

    At last I can log off, been trying for the last three hours! :eek:

    Looks like another crash as there were 21 people when I got normal service here and now 93 and rising as I post this. Before the glue sets in again or another crash I bid you all good night.

    Good luck to Otto & Co with the move.

    :bow: Herr Grofaz :bow: Thanks for posting that information, I already feel the sheer panic subsiding, and the "calm" once more settling into the 'left clicking' fingers of us Rogues.

    I know the "stats" for ww2f can, and are mind-boggling. And sometimes suffers from the dreaded treacle ... We've all had the .... "waiting & waiting for ww2f.com" tension ... even the... "Server timed-out" What's-it ... But the big black letters ...

    :_achtung: 404 Not Found -- :alarm: Warning! Danger! Will Robinson Danger!! :alarm: .... :_arg: ... :_ww2f.com:

    "Nooooo!!!! Katherine...Get my tin hat and cammo ready..."

    Absolute sheer bloody terror set in as I declared my Bookmarks toolbar infected with a virus ... Google Search Engine can't find it ... "Kath!!! They're coming..."
    OK...calm down... http://www.ww2f.c ... it's too late...the end is already upon us.

    What happens now? I even ... (shudder) ... Nearly Logged in to my facebook page for false comfort.

    Otto, you may want to consider a comfort 'link' so future panic attacks can be avoided...nothing fancy... maybe that photo of VonPoop "marking" his territory in the bunker, whilst whistling "We'll meet again" may have desired calming effect. :D

    Thanks for all you are doing for us mere Rogues.
