It's like the forum just went 4k. Can only get here with a proxy via the UK. Network trace suggests akamai redirection in the US is failing. Without a proxy, I get this trying to access normally in the US:
On another forum related issue. There are a lot of spam bots posting here, Maybe if it was required that email address's to be authenticated before posting or commenting it would prevent the dumber bots.
@EricLNZ here as well again some intermittent slow responding. Spams are a different topic but as you say progress has been made and it seems that admins are considering suggestions and options regarding new registrations.
Really? How many have you seen in the past 11 days? Since the spam blocker was fine tuned Moderators haven't had to block any. The system has dealt with them and they haven't appeared here.
Maybe 3 bots, but perhaps over a duration of a few weeks. I was basing my concern on the infrequent amount of times I've been checking the board lately, but could be coincidence, and I've witnessed all the bots of the last few weeks

From Vegas staff comments on the forum recently and in the past, it seems to me that MAGIX servers are a couple of decades out-of-date. Come on MAGIX, grow up and cater for the 3rd decade of the 21st century - stop being a cheap no-investment company lest you are left to be a failed company because you declined to keep up with current day customer expectations.
I know the system administrators are still looking into this issue. It seems to be a problem between the database and the cloud servers used to run the site. Some other Azure based services appear to be having some issues as well.
