    The last few day's has seen a serious decrease in the amount of logged on users, what has happened?

    It doesn't seem to matter what time of day but there seems to be a lot less people around recently.

    I think, this is because BHW is inaccessible in Most of the Countries. I'm using proxy.

    there was an attempt at a DDOS attack (I believe) and a lot of IP ranges have been blocked, which include a lot of members IPs.

    from BHW facebook

    "Due to a lot of unnaturally high traffic coming from specific regions we've had to take the hard decision to close access to specific IP ranges - whilst 90% of our users are unaffected we are working on getting the other 10% back online ASAP."

    and just a few minutes ago it seemed like there was another attempt.

    I just got that 403 error too but kept refreshing the page and got on. Must be this error causing the decreased numbers.

    ^ that looks like it may cause problems.

    and when I try to click Home:

    This is what's going on, this page keeps coming up every now and again instead of BHW's homepage, it's took me 3 attempts to post this, as every time I try and post something, the page just freezes, here's the page that keeps coming up:

    I am getting the same thing when I visit the homepage. The only way I could access the forum was to go to a thread I had bookmarked previously. I am in the US.

    Had this problem yesterday on my home wireless, I'm using the universities wifi now and am able to get on the site. Hopefully when I get home today I will be able to get on BHW.
