These servers are experiencing a DDOS attack. We're working to resolve the issue and will post more info when we have it available.
We're continuing to fight off the attack. You may notice a slight slowdown occasionally but all boards on these servers should be accessible.

Thanks for your patience.
The servers were down for a period of time today and we may still be experiencing some issues due to the attack. Including a time out error when posting. Invisionfree is working on the problems.

I was getting that pesky time out error all yesterday. I knew nothing good would come from that. lol. What's a DDOS attack?

I remembered that site that takes you to all the statuses for Invision and kept that refreshed all morning. When it came on I was so happy. Nearly did a dance. lol. My life is so sad.

DDOS as I understand it is a program used by hackers to interrupt or stop users from accessing public servers. I know LJ has had issues with it as well as some games like minecraft.

Hopefully they'll get it resolved soon ;)

DDOS attack is usually increasing a site's traffic so drastically that the servers of the site are unable to handle the onslaught of "incomers". It's usually done with zombie computers from what I get. LJ is often attacked that way, usually it's political in nature over there though.

I can access the site now, hopefully it stays that way.

ETA: Forget that, I get error messages when I try to post.

Members on the site seems to be having issues on the board. The pages are loading slow for a bout a week now.
