Site Performance Issues

Post by I'm a goff (in case you couldn't tell) » Sun Nov 10, 2019 1:27 am

The site has been receiving an excessive amount of traffic over the last day or so, putting an extreme demand on the server.

I'm working on getting a handle on the traffic and back to normal. Things may be a little weird in the meantime.

I've added some additional security settings on the server to limit the excessive traffic.

There may be some false positives that are getting blocked - I've tried to limit it where I could. If you know of people that are getting 403 errors viewing content on the site, bring it to my attention either here or via Discord.
