The site appears to be under some sort of strange attack with many new member names appearing as logged in members.


The total number of members 271 never increases and the names are all rather strange although Elephantx did make me laugh, until this issue is looked into I will have to refrain from posting / Logging in,


Sorry for posting on this section but I have no PM facility. Hope someone from admin can explain or sort the issue, thanks :niceone:

thanks mate - none of the accounts were approved so no risk to anyone on the site but there were a number of attempted spammers trying to register, I've deleted the lot of them.

We validate every member manually so there is no chance of them doing any damage.

I've also beefed up security a bit so hoping we won't get as many bots trying to register.
