For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, check this out. The long and the short of it is that thousands of compromised computers launched brute-force hacking attacks on WordPress-powered sites (like your beloved Dungeoneering.net). This consisted of slamming the server with login requests for Admin, trying thousands of passwords. This had the effect of locking up the site so no one (including the hackers) could get in.
I’ve done a check and audit of the site and nothing was compromised. I don’t use “Admin” as an account and I have a variety of security plugins installed to keep people out of the common security holes in WP.
The only real problem was the loss in viewership and ad revenue. If you’re feeling generous, please click one of the sponsor links around the site. It’s all that pays the bills here, since all the downloads are free.
I hope you all have something to be thankful for!
Here’s to (hopefully) a warm and happy holiday season my fellow gamers.
Hope you all have a great 2012 full of games, fun, prosperity, and happiness!
Hopefully, I’ll have some awesome stuff for you kids in the coming year. Maybe this will be the big one that gets the board game released as a final version.
A few people have griped about the Windows theme, but I think it’s going to stay. The older theme didn’t support ads very well and when I checked my old stats, the ad revenue started dropping the minute I switched off of this theme.
Frankly, I don’t see the problem. It’s clean and clear and the navigation is pretty obvious. If I find something that won’t offend Apple and Linux fanboys, I’ll put it up. If you guys want to start donating or paying for the downloads, you can have any theme you want. Deal?
If you like the site and would like to share it with others, be sure to click the “+1″ icon in the upper right of the site.
Google is now tracking what people like and clicking that little icon will help drive traffic to Dungeoneering. Could really use the traffic, the site stopped being profitable a month or two back, so right now there’s no real drive to make more content.
