You browsed the forums too actively - causing up to 1040 connections at once.
Either that or a bot spammed the forums with connection requests.

What you're seeing is an overload protection.

I would like to think it was the former. :)) A new record perhaps?
If you want realism, you're in the wrong place. Get off your mobile.

Exactly. That's definitely the most plausible explanation. Either that, or aliens. :-)

Just look first page down:
Most users ever online was 669 on Tue Nov 19, 2019 04:19

Today, just an hour ago, also big problem to access, near 560 visitors, just 5 registered.
Is it getting famous or an attack ?
Server: still up, see some gamer - but there is a new 1st important thread "climate change" for me. Something I know since 1992 - had seen the melting glacier in Switzerland.
