    Default Website Issues

    We are back up (hopefully) without issues going forward.

    Pearl Guide was the target of an intense Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack last week and over the weekend. We've since migrated to a new how with better mitigation capabilities. If this doesn't work, we will take it a step further.

    Fingers crossed!

    Thanks for the explanation, Jeremy. I think we’ve all really missed the forum!

    Thank you for the update. I thought I'd been banned.

    That was my initial thought, then I realized I hadn't had a chance to log in, so there was no way for the site to know it was me. So, everyone had to be banned, which is essentially what happened.

    BWeaves, I wondered if I’d been banned too!

    We might see more issues, but if we do, please just spread the word that we are working on it and nobody is banned and Pearl-Guide is not going away

    Thanks for hanging in there everybody - We've been attacked a few times in the past, but nothing like this one.
