I don't know if anyone has had any trouble getting to this forum in the past few days, but I have. i keep getting permission denied pages. It's probably something on my end, if no one else has had any problems... I was estatic to see that the forum worked this morning. now i have to see how much i can read before i am denied again...

DoS attack that kicked the hoster offline ... happens every once in a while to almost every website ... let's just hope it won't happen to DnD4 again anytime soon.

Yeah, I had no access most of this week and I just checked each morning. I was going to try to access it from home tonight just to verify whether it was the hosting site or a new restriction at work. Glad it was just the former.

We did everything in our power to get the website back up and running ASAP. The dnd4.com community is a very good one, and I'm glad everyone is able to access the forums again. It has been a stressful couple of days.

what kind of sick person would try to take the dnd4 forums? haha. I didn't see that post on the announcement board. Thanks for your hard work in getting it back up.

it's been a long couple of days not being able to get my d and d forum fix...

The attack wasn't against dnd4.com specifically, just the company that is hosting the dnd4.com website (or one of the websites the company hosts).

Thank you Skibybadoowap.

When I got a forbidden error trying to access dnd4.com, I was afraid you had been hit with a cease and desist notice (or rather that your host had).

I'm glad to see you're back online again!
