Forum Updates

Hey all! As part of a move towards more transparency this thread will be used to keep the community up to date with changes made. This thread will be posted to by staff members as changes come, and will be recycled at the end of each year.
  • The staff have forced a change to all passwords on the forum. There has been a security breach that has compromised user passwords. If you have used the same password for any other accounts, please change those to a unique strong password. A password manager will help store and generate secure passwords. After a few months, passwords will be required to be reset again periodically to ensure account safety. If you are on Discord, please consider turning on Two Factor Authentication.
  • The SMBX Wiki will be closing for maintenance until further notice. Details will be shared as more are worked out.

An extra step after registration has been added as a precaution against spam and abuse of the forums. Chances of seeing spam bots will be far lower going forward.

It's the 10th anniversary of SMBX's launch. That's a big number!

Kley has passed on site ownership to Quill. Staff will remain the same with the exception of that change. Any questions about the site should be directed at Quill.

Also, a fix has been implemented to prevent "508 Resource Limit Reached" errors from being an issue. The SMBX download as well as this site should remain available going forward. We apologize for past inconvenience this issue has caused. We're still working on keeping bots away, and will continue to do so.

Work is being done behind the scenes to clean things up from prior attacks. Forum performance should be improved and page load times may be noticeably faster. Bandwidth usage has also steeply declined since the implementation of the botnet fix so 508s should be rare.
