Based on what Ray (Regulo) has posted and a quick Google, it would seem that there may be some pimply faced prats with no social skills who have targetted the chatroom.

I have only been in the quiz twice in ages, is this kind of problem regular?

Google shows several variants of "IHT", the least likely is "International Herald Tribune". The "I" could be many different things, but "HT" is very probably "Hacking Team".

Is there anything that can be done to up the security? Is the flashchat an old and easily hacked version?

HDT, I am not what you'd call a regular Quizzer (I'd rather be afloat), but every time I've taken part, there has been some disruption. Mostly lock-outs where your input just doesn't, well, input. The only way then is to exit and re-enter. But last night seemed the first time the whole shebang went pear-shaped for everyone at once. The hacked site message I got didn't seem to adversely affect either the chat room on it's return, or my own computer, and I can't see why anyone would announce their hacking if malice were intended. As you say, pimply youths, most likely.

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there, then where is it?

Too true Grendel Smile

I know I could be way off, but a conspiracy theory is a hell of a lot more fun than just thinking the chatroom is a bit dodgy.

Hi all,

I did not experience any hacker messages last night but the chatroom locked up on me several times and ejcected me completely on a couple of occassions.

it would not allow me back in, even under another name, until i had rebooted my own system completely.

I did however notice that when I could not get back into the chatroom last night i could not access the forum either. maybe there is a connection there somewhere even though I understand they are not on the same server.

I will send a pm to Gary about last night and i am sure he would be interested in the details of the hacking message.

The usual problems occuring with the chatroom are users not being able to see all the others that are present.  Last night was one of the worst evenings for problems that I have expereinced.  Especially as there were so few actually taking part due to the distraction of things like the 3RR.

Good to see you in the quiz Stevie (breamslayer).  Please do join in again.  Just sorry last night was such a fiasco.

Looking forward to Grahams quiz next week.  fingers crossed for a trouble free evening.

All the best

Arthur

Wasn't it fun?  Well done to Arthur on running the quiz
in difficult circumstances and to everyone else who
stuck with it, i thought on a couple of occasions i
would not get back in but did and won.
I'll have to think of topics over the weekend.

I joined on time as normal around 2145 and didn't have a problem but watch everyone drop in and out till we were 7.
If there hitting the main page what about added a 2nd room on the chat screen???

A warm welcome to Steve the Breamslayer, always nice to have a new person aboard the good ship Forum Quiz.  Arthur set some wonderful questions (probably set ALL wonderful questions but on the third lockout I couldn't get back in and was so tired, I gave up, so I missed quite a few.  Funniest one for me was getting back in on the Lake District round and having to guess the Q, I guessed wrong and said Striding Edge instead of Swirral edge, but no matter.  

When I left I was convinced Vetchugger would win but Graham came steaming up the inside and pipped him!  Had to revise my initial response to Fidear's query as to who had won.

If we don't allow whoever is trying to cause us problems to get a rise out of us, they may move on, until then, soldier (or sailor) on, I say!
