I read something about cloudflare being used to DDoS cloudflare, since it bypassed their own protection from within themselves as 'trusted'

Cloudflare Protection Bypass Vulnerability on Threat Actors' Radar (socradar.io)

That is a thing, but recently (though I'm not @W1zzard there has been an identified http2 0day) that allows tremendous attack amplitude.

HTTP/2 is still barely used on the web, though.
HTTP2 is used EVERYWHERE


That's not what hit us. Just some classic HTTP floods through HTTP2, so they don't have to reconnect all the time, saving on resources on their side. Turning off HTTP2 permanently hurts our users too much though, not worth it

Dear Wizzard and Hobgoblins,

Please never make a big change to the website like Hilbert did to Guru3D a few weeks ago... Guru3D just looks and feels horrible to me now, I much prefer the older style it had. Now this might just be a case of being on the autism spectrum, where I struggle with change... but I don't think it is. Take for example the downloads section, there used to be a top download section where it was easy for me to find MSI Afterburner on Guru3D, now that is gone... not to mention the UI elements just really don't work for me personally.

TPU is already perfect. Please don't get any fancy ideas like Guru3D did... you did a great job with TPU. Already lost one community when Overclock.net turned to an absolute nightmare of a website a few years ago with its UI element changes, Guru3D isn't as bad as that, but it just feels too strange now. Head-Fi also made some big changes to its website a few years ago, made it really hard to navigate to the forums in a clear and concise way, so I left that community too. TPU is perfect, so if you ever get any fancy ideas on changing UI elements or forum structure, please get in a hot tub, get a nice cold drink, and realize you are already better off than Gandalf and that you don't need to make any changes at all, thank you and have a good day. -Dave from Customer Service

I keep thinking about ideas how to improve, but can't come up with much. Rest assured if there's something that makes the site better, I'll consider it.

What I have on the to-do list is more retina images, especially for news/review thumbs and charts, but that requires a lot of backend work.
No plans to move away from static png charts.
Lots of backend changes happening slowly, basically moving from PHP to .NET, free-time project of mine
Also I want to put comments at the end of each reviews page to make them more visible, just no idea yet how to design it so that it looks good, I guess something similar to what Anandtech does

other stuff sounds ok, this ^ sounds like bad idea, you already do this perfectly and its very aesthetically pleasing (two areas to click on for discussions). please get in the hot tub. :roll:

No, the forums will stay on XenForo, it's simply the best forum software, by far

It really is. I love this. Though I'm not sure if it was around at the time, a MASSIVE thank you for not going for something like discourse. I CANNOT STAND that layout. It seems to have gotten popular in the last few years and those communities' are contextual messes to navigate.

Xenforo, imo is the biggest improvement to the site since the facelift reworking the top way way back when.

Nothing worse than tech forums you can't understand chronological order easily.

Don't worry about it. The TPU front page is excellent and with few exceptions the selection of Xenforo forum software is equally so.

100% agree there. Discourse is a sad & pathetic amateur-hour mess. Boarders on completely useless.

got no adblock for TPU and ive purged the filters anyway just incase it was messing with the site while off. Site still works fine in Incognito mode and i have the same extensions enabled for that so im going to chalk it down to chrome having a moment and it will grow out of it eventually.

Gateway errors are usually site issues, not browser issues tho

It's perfectly clear. I'm a network agnostic - it's all magic to me, so when you changed your wee pop-up a while ago, it made me quite happy to see there was no fault at my end. It's viewer error that they're not picking it up. No matter how many posters and warning signs you make, people still will ignore them.
