    Hello brothers,
    We faced in the last days a very wild DDOS attack which caused us to close the main forum for some testing purposes. Please rest assure that we still have a backup of our previous forum, so we didn't lose anything.
    Kindest regards,

    Dear brothers,
    I'm not disappeared. I'll try to explain what happening lately and what we try to do.
    In the first days of this problem, we got too much visitors and they exceeded the website resources, while we're a new forum, we didn't expect that the visitors could exceed this limit under any means. While checking the logging tables, we discovered a very huge range of IPs from all countries trying to do DDOS attack. we blocked it manually for many days and we blocked some countries but that didn't solved the problem, we had hundreds of DDOS IPs . The website host suspended the account because of reaching and exceeding our resources. Everytime we open the forum, it keep loading on the server even while blocking too much IPs range. we updated the forum version because of some updates in "Apache" servers, may be our latest version caused the problem of this unusual loading, but as usual, the problems persisted.
    I opened this forum to :
    1- test the database and many plugin and their working log.
    2- check the IPs activities.
    3- we will transfer our database to this new version, if there is no problem we will continue here, if not, we'll keep it private.
    This week the forum will working fine.

    There was some good discussion and good people. But there was always something "off" about the admins. I figured they would do something like this eventually after they got enough "goodies".

    Well, the "goodies" were not necessarily (always) legal, so sooner or later someone was bound to go after them. I guess that's what happened.

    whatever the story may be, TRaderzone Admin, never asked money from any of its members and have now disappeared , so whosover is planting that story is ill minded and with ulterior motive. For the time being, it is no more, and no point in debating.

    PEACE

    some more hints:
    http://[email protected]/forums/showthread.php?1-This-is-a-testing-forum-only&p=90&viewfull=1#post90

    So now my suspicion is verified, it was the same guy behind both [email protected] and traderszone. Admin,T-rex,veteran,cleopatra,tycoon are the same person.

    Riiiight.... it couldn't possibly be that the guy who ran traderszone and [email protected] and shut down the sites for no apparent reason could have disappeared with the group buy money. Nope, those guys who are complaining in [email protected] are just making up sinister lies.
