They briefly went down on October 30, 2020, after server abuse reports as mentioned earlier. No backups were ever done by GameDevCel as he said he never wanted to pause the database to do so. He was able to retrieve the data, as mentioned earlier. They came back online around November 1, and are currently online.

Bombing and revival[edit]

On October 30, 2020, their server was forced offline through abuse reports to the server company. All forum threads were temporarily lost in the process. The threads that got them shut down were about clothed women under 18. They claim there was no child pornography in the threads and were shut down for no good reason.

After the NYTimes expose of the founders, SergeantIncel left, which prompted GameDev to take aggressive layer 7 DDoS protection (Cloudlfare CAPTCHAs) off his forum.

2021 Raiding[edit]

During 2021, the forum was raided by someone named neetard, who GameDevCel thinks tried to astroturf his forum and report the site to the server host. During this time, GameDevCel moved server hosts twice, and moved DDoS protection from Cloudflare to Epik's Bitmitigate.
