      Did you get the email? the site was hacked in on Halloween so a message came out some tougher spam, trolls hacker stuff is being tested. Sites like this where you can post stuff are bombarded by spammers hard to keep them out when you have thousands of poorly paid people sitting at computers surfing for interactive sites to post their links and such. low life trash they are.
      You wont be blocked the email said ignore if you got it but if your IP changes it is a small chance you could get an IP a spammer messed up and got blacklisted.

      Sorry about that I am fine tuning the blocking software, something has to be done to keep spammers off here because of the content these people leave behind and they don’t care this is a family friendly site geared to kids and teens. Since it has been up just a few days over 1000 spammers and other assorted web criminals blocked while allowing 12,00 good visitors.

       

      Still have a lot of work to do with the site because I am very limited in time I can spend working on it, I have to next get the word out better and get better seo.

      Jon due to bombardment by spammers and trolls the secirity system is normaly tuned a bit more restrictive from midnight to early in the morning, I will whitelist your account so this will not happen again.

      If there are others that might have run in to this block screen let me know and I will and you to the whitelist or always allow.

      OG it is a simple case of server overload, the visitors here has jumped substantially this Summer and the computing power is getting overloaded.
      I am not technical but as told to me by admin before a site like this uses database queries for everything a user do and you get one hundred persons watching videos clickign through photos, reading blogs or whatever the computing power gets used up and site is not reachanble.
      Solution is well less people come or the server again has to be increased if and when the admin choose to do so. THis is a FANSITE and upgrading cost money site does not make money.
