Network Issues (Wildcard50x, IPs)

Feb 25 2015, 12:25 PM

This morning we had a few issues with our network due to some changes made by our provider. (We were not given notice).

1. There was a hard ~4M of downtime reported earlier this morning around 6/7am EST.

2. Based on my analysis, after this event, IP addresses were showing up as all the same on some boards. Real IP address of users were not being displayed, but rather an internal IP address from our network provider (BlackLotus.net).

This issue has been resolved, however, if you see this IP in your logs or members posts, do not be alarmed.

This incident was not our fault; unfortunately I was not notified there was going to be this change...

3. Users are experiencing some 'slow' pageloads and a "WildCard50x" error. I am working with them to hopefully resolve this problem quickly.

Thanks for your patience and apologies for the inconvenience.
