There was a popup about my device being infected. So it might be a hacker. But why would they go for a sonic roleplayin site

If you are using a phone, the device thing may simply be a random pop-up. I know I get plenty of them regardless of where I go.
I know yesterday I couldn't access for a few hours, but nobody else seemed to be having an issue at the time. There is a very good chance it is simply forum motion having some issues on their end, or updating stuff a region at a time.

A couple of days ago I did have issues connecting to the site. Perhaps it was something like that?

I personally had no issues, but I must say that there's been instances of pop-ups going on about viruses, aaand they are just pop-ups. Adblock should do the trick!
The site does sometimes not load (for me it usually just displays a blank page with a spinning circle in the middle of it), or doesn't allow one to log in, but that's usually when the whole forumotion is down for maintenance, or is going through some little crash - sadly, like I said, it's a whole forumotion thing, and we have no control over it whatsoever :c But then again, they usually don't last long! Soo I wouldn't worry about any hackers.
And we get guests from all over the world, including multiple bots (check out some dead forumotion forums -they're riddled with random accounts spamming ad messages all across the boards), but so far none of us were murdered or hacked from the internet forever! 8D

I also had the problem of not being able to access the site. There was a "Guest" From China on yesterday that has a small chance of being responsible.  The thing is I also had the problem. My phone displayed all other sites then SRN

I can say that we have no control over the accessibility of the site for others. If you can't access the site it tends to be FORUMOTIONS problem, not SRN I fear.

There is literally nothing that we can do to stop it or fix it if you can't access the site for a while. Heck might even be your internet service in general having a site hick up big time as this has been the case before.

I do remember a few days ago I couldn't access the site at all. Tried on phone,computer, and tablet. I'm so glad someone else noticed what happened too. thought I was the only one. I think the website had a brain fart LOL.

Doxing doesn't work that way but I don't blame you for that I dropped out of the CIT major because of how complicated it was.

You're probably thinking a ddos attack. When that happens you can't get on a site because artificial traffic is slowing the server. If it happened to that many users that would be my guess. The adds are something else. Chances are a malicious add made its way onto the site.
