    Welcome to the new Higherside Forums. To start participating, you'll need a password for the system. You can get one established by clicking the "forgot password" link, and a URL to create one will be sent to your THC+ email. Your username should be the same, but these are now two independent systems. As a result, changes to your THC+ username/password will not be reflected in your THC Forum username and vise versa. Also, as a bonus, your ability to participate in the forums will continue beyond the life of your THC+ membership.

    Enjoy the upgrade! Users can now make a full profile, start conversations (private messages) between each other, give and track likes, utilize trophies, conduct polls, write public statuses, comment on statuses of others, subscribe to forums, receive alerts, see latest activity, share media, and much more!

    Hey, I've always wondered how much you guys have had to deal with suspicious DDOS attacks or hacking attempts on the THC websites, or even the forums.

    Like I'm sure that people have to have targeted your shit at times, or tried funky stuff over the years, but have you ever taken account of malicious traffic or even inexplicable gremlins that seemed outside the norm?

    Have you noticed that these things spike while you're releasing certain episodes, or with certain people? Has it ever occurred to you to keep track of malicious traffic in regards to the timing of interviews you conduct?

    I imagine there's had to be some eerie happenings in that realm by this stage in the game.

    Weirdly, I haven't been on in a very long time, and I happened to get back on a year minus a day after this post...

    Hey Gunshy, great questions. What a great way to add fuel to a conspiracies plausibility. I have been on he unfortunate side of many DDOS attacks, working in the video game industry. It's really expensive to justify DDOS protection compared to the actual service being provided, and unless you have a great hosting facility, the logging of advanced 'hacking' attacks is not available.

    At any rate, I would be interested to know if the info is available.
