October 18, 2022: Fort Family Sites under attack?
Posted by JeffsFort
As some of you may have noticed, we have been experiencing intermittent outages with a small handful of our story siites as recently as earlier today. These outages are a result of a service that we utilize being hacked, which is affecting some functionality of the sites and triggering malware scanners within our service. It is being addressed but as with any attack of this nature, we can't offer a timeframe of when we are "in the clear" as we are simply reacting when trouble pops up as software needs to be developed to address this new issue moving forward.
For now, be sure you keep copies of everything that is newly posted on your site as an attack could force a site to restore from a recent backup, which 'could' reverse the addition of new material. Site owners, you will be contacted if this action is performed on your site. Get in touch with one of us if you have any questions or concerns.
Together we built The Fort Family and together we defend it!

"What is it?" Hunter asked anxiously.
Alana glanced around the room to assess the prevailing mood, then cautiously said, "It wasn't the words so much as it was the underlying intent. On the surface, the voice sounded like a lonely child wanting a companion to play with, but the intonation is off. There's a nuance behind the words that's much older... much darker."
"So you think that this is the spirit of an adult pretending to be a child?" Kerry asked cautiously.
"Possibly. But it could also be an inhuman, a demon, either pretending to be a child or maybe even using an actual child spirit as something like a puppet." Alana said thoughtfully.
"Like bait." Kerry said darkly.

"I've got everything I need for now. I'll be in my office for a while, if you need me for anything."
"I think I'll stay down here with Beau for now. If you run into the boys upstairs, tell Duran to go ahead and make waffles for him and Lane whenever they're ready. Everything's set out for them." Dodger said gently.
"Duran, but not Lane?" Rafe asked to confirm his understanding of the instructions.
"Yes. I'm convinced that Lane could burn the house down making a bowl of cereal."
"If I see Duran, I'll be sure to pass on your message." Rafe said warmly.
As Rafe leaned in to give Dodger a kiss, the young werewolf between them decided that he wanted to get in on the action as well.
Before Rafe could back away, both he and Dodger had received sloppy kisses from Beau.
Rafe couldn't resist the urge and gave Beau a firm kiss on the cheek before standing to leave.
"Let me know if you think of anything else we can do to improve his chances... anything." Dodger reiterated firmly.
"I will. I promise." Rafe assured him before walking with purpose back to the stairs.

August 5, 2022: Possible Stability Issue
Posted by JeffsFort
Hi Fort Family!
As many of you may be unaware, on Thursday evening our service provider was one of many who experienced a complete outage that took our entire community down for a short period of time. I won't go into any details but we are not complaining about the speed in which this issue was addressed. The reason for this post is to request that any major site updates or important chapter postings should be postponed to allow for temporary fixes to receive permanent repairs. Where the work continues, I would consider all of our sites "Read Only" for a day or two. I will attempt a current backup as a "Just Incase" but, if we experience DNS issues resulting from the outage, new work could be lost.
So please join us in thanking those involved in such a speedy recovery but to be safe, do some reading and let your readers angrily stare at your newest cliffhanger one or two more days. 🤣
