From Cheat Engine twitter: "... apparently @iweb felt like null-routing the IP for 24-hours. They are funny like that. "

it was a ddos attack. and iweb hosting will shut down any server under such attack for 24 hours. (they don't negotiate with terrorists, they just give them what they want)

anyhow, as usual when the site is laying on the ground someone else comes by and kicks it in the stomach some more.
this time in the form of a "notice of infringement" by theesa claiming cheatengine.org is violating the works of companies like bethesda softworks and other companies by allowing it to make derived works.
so yeah...

Will the tables/etc forum be opened anytime soon? Or would that fall under the absurd copyright notice problem?

Man, that sucks. I don't know if you were already using it but cloudflare is amazing with ddos attacks. Some really huge sites use it for protection.

copyright strikes are fucking unfair, whoever brings it up first wins even if its false. Move to another host if they are giving you trouble for this, some hosting companies are assholes when it comes to these things and don't listen to reason.

iweb sounds like a shitty host, my brother's company had a web messenger that was constantly getting ddosed by a rival company for months and the hosting provider they used actually helped them with setting up firewalls and other measures/suggestions to make sure their site won't go down. I thought it was standard on these expensive dedi servers.

This is both, unfortunate and frustrating. Legitimacy of IP infringement claims aside, the SPC request sub-forum needs to have active moderators that can monitor what is being posted. Assigning additional moderators for the Tables sub-forum might also be a good idea.

I know that I PM'd you about this some time ago, DB, but at the time of that post, prohibited content was being published with seemingly little or no oversight.

In any case, the C&D letters or infringement claims should provide details regarding the what, while allowing you ample time for removal. It is typical for hosting providers to side with such claims in an effort to cover their own behinds. Unfortunately, the burden of proof can sometimes fall on to the shoulders of the accused, allowing some false or 'erroneous' claims to be easily abused.

LOL - I do hope that your hosting provider received more information than that. Sounds like a bogus claim. The fact that you are also being bombarded with DDOS, might give more credence to that. If the two are related, whomever is doing it is clearly not concerned about the law.

By the way, this temporary site keeps redirecting to github, even during login attempts.

Geez... that's shitty news.

Will you be able to keep the Forums running like this at least (albeit closed off), for people to still access the more recent (and older) tables? Or will it eventually be fully shut down? Really sad that people always have to ruin a good thing.
