    OcUK has fallen apart.

    Your first order was on 27/12, which being Christmas, we were closed on, unfortunately, also the 28th, hence why it didn't dispatch the same day or even the next day. Your second order was made on 17/01 at 16:09, unfortunately this was: a) After the cut off time of 16:00 for same day dispatch...

    I Was Hacked.

    @Rainmaker My suggestion of using open source 2FA clients was really only for those who don't trust larger organizations. Authy and similar large companies such as google auth are fine if you are not wearing a tin hat, there is far more for them to lose by abusing the trust than to ever gain...

    **** Please enable 2FA on your OcUK forum account ****

    Welllll that's a new take, however given that 2FA doesn't require a phone (there is ones you can use on any device) what you are saying is baseless, here is the thing though, 2FA doesn't remove the need to have a password, you need both, so even if you think they are compromising your 2FA code...

    ***** Forum URL update (again) *****

    Passing back through CF like before, just no browser check or anything, basically acting purely as a proxy, we think it's just some routing issue, though we can't figure why, it only seems to affect safari really.

    ***** Forum URL update (again) *****

    Login issue was it thinking everyone was connecting to localhost, that should be resolved now, please try again.

    VOUCHER CODE DEALS CONCEPT PLAN!

    I don't know about that side, this was more a technical bug that went wrong. For Gibbos voucher stuff you likely know more than me.

    VOUCHER CODE DEALS CONCEPT PLAN!

    All orders are cancelled, sorry for getting your hopes up, tried to solve a problem for Scott and ended up making a bigger one with the website. Most orders I have managed to cancel I think before the payment would have even left your banks. For those that did leave they should be back in your...

    What the actual hell is going on...

    This scalper stuff is largely nonsense, the vast majority of cards have gone to genuine customers and multiple checks have been done to remove people that wanted to resell, yes we can't stop your average Joe from buying 1 for themselves and then selling it, but it is not vast armies of bots...

    What the actual hell is going on...

    Again makes no sense, you pay what you are willing to pay, if you don't want to pay for the first set of cards then wait until there is more stock ---- still putting you at getting a card at the same time you would with the "stock piling" method. The prices haven't been put up because of a lack...

    What the actual hell is going on...

    You are saying that they wait until they have stock piled enough to satisfy the whole market? So that no one can get the cards until later? The only difference this would make is that everybody would be waiting longer.

    What the actual hell is going on...

    Sales are up about 2-3x normal rates especially on GFX cards and cpus, everyone is stuck at home with nothing to do, so what do they do? They play computer games, they get bored of their current games, they want to buy new games, their old gfx card does not support the new games, they upgrade...

    enough is enough with your website

    bit pointless as CF is now off again, we only turn it on during launches.

    @mrdiglit - https://www.overclockers.co.uk/forums/community/order-queries.118/ also https://discord.gg/eYeBjySv yes webnotes and phones are swamped unfortunately.

    Not the only thing stopping the bots, googles captcha also prevents purchases during launches. If someone has found a way around googles captcha well then we have other issues to worry about too I guess.

    enough is enough with your website

    Only a suggestion at the moment but the idea was liked, as for avoiding throw away users it might be harder, though 1 shipping address per user would likely deal with the problem if you have siblings you wanted to buy for then unlucky.

    enough is enough with your website

    Ahhh @jcharnley1984, so you are 1 of the bots that keeps performing stock checks on the site adding on to the thousands of other bots doing the same thing, and then wondering why sites don't perform as well as they used to. Let me just explain something simple, we have cloud flare that filters...

    enough is enough with your website

    Neh the site has been under a lot of load, site normal load is 3 times last years and during the launches is as much as 20x, plus the bots and actual attacks, we spend thousands to mitigate and such but unfortunately the site itself needs an upgrade, throwing more hardware at it does not really...

    Its nice to know that someone loves OcUK so much that they want to provide pointers that we can follow in order to continue providing a service to them. Rest assured we are looking at changes the traffic to the site has tripled effectively overnight and bringing around changes on the other hand...

    *** NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3080 SERIES STOCK SITUATION - NO COMPETITOR DISCUSSION ***

    Orders are generated on the website and then downloaded to the warehouse creating a warehouse order number (as the warehouse can also take orders over the phone) OC number is the website ordernumber, the other is your warehouse ordernumber. Please don't put your order number in public though.
