This is a just a notice that the Portland Bike Forums are temporarily down.
Over the weekend, some sort of annoying spam/security breach resulted in every one of the 800 or so members being sent an email that said:
“Your account on Portland Bike Forums (by BikePortland.org) has been locked because someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5 times. You will be able to attempt to log in again in another 15 minutes.”
I am looking into the issue and have decided to close the forums while I upgrade the forum software and remedy the situation.
Thanks to everyone who emailed me about this and I apologize for any inconvenience.
I will announce the opening of the forums here as soon as I can.
