Temporary Block on Registrations

Postby Monk Ed » Sun Sep 06, 2020 7:21 pm

EGF is currently weathering hostile action from an outside group. Until this storm has passed, the staff have instituted a block on the creation of new accounts.

Please be patient. :kaos_bow:

I don't really understand all this. About a week ago Reichu made a post saying that new registrations are closed, and that the forum is only visible to members or something like that. That post got removed/deleted/whatever, and the forum was made visible again and registrations were opened as well. So, apparently, Reichu was in error? Now, Reichu is not an Admin anymore, according to the teampage, and you post the same message again.

So, what's going on here? Will there be an attack? Won't there be? Who is this "outside group"? Why is this "hostile action" happening?

The Internet has many bad actors, and some have turned their attention to a moderation decision on this forum which they dislike. You could say that it comes down to whether a forum can be run by its owners and staff, or should be at the whim of others. To explain in more detail would take too long, and not be as edifying as you'd hope.

I'm going to second Derantor's confusion in regards to this whole "thing"?

And frankly I'm baffled by any group attacking a small forum and the why behind said "attack"(being very bad at computers and the internet in general I don't know what an attack even means in this context).

Guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens?
