Title: Restricting Access to the board - Please login and post at least once
Post by: Trathor on November 17, 2013, 10:50:05 PM
Hey guys.  To help keep out the people that like to do DoS attacks, we're gonna make many parts of the forum only visible when you log in, and only to people who have at least one post.  Hopefully this helps us identify who is trying to do DoS attacks when they do happen.  Sorry if this is a pain.

Not at all.  Do what you gotta do. I'm on other boards that do that--it's not a problem.

No idea who does it... other than people who do it just because they can (I assume they would do it to any forum/ website the can).

Yep, one of my orchid boards gets spam like you wouldn't believe; the other gets DDOS attacks periodically.  Clearly there are ppl out there with too much time on their hands.  >:(

Yep. You wouldn't believe the fights people get into over nomenclature.  ;)  (the rest of us just sit back with wine and popcorn and watch. I'm told the daylily hybridizers are even worse.)

And of course there're other things, like, "hey, anyone know what this bug is?" "EWWWWW-!"  Or, "can anyone tell me the name of this hybrid?" "well, there are about 125,000 named hybrids out there, so.... no."   And lots of pictures.  You know, stuff like that. ;D

There  is a cat in a box. Inside the box is also another box with another cat it in.  Which cat is alive?

I'm having trouble posting in the forum. I just can't find an option for starting a new topic at all. I'm not sure if it's because I'm using my phone, or if I am just being an idiot and missing something. Both seem equally plausible.

You're looking for a button marked 'new topic' on the top of an individual board on  the forum page ( not the index page)

http://dragonconforums.org/forum/

Pick the relevant section and go for it. :)

Still better than spam. It is pretty extreme though.
