General Discussion / Website Shenanigans
« on: August 01, 2016, 12:12:27 PM »
Some of you may have noticed that our website was briefly being redirected to an on-line casino. Basically, one line of code had been maliciously added to the website, pointing it elsewhere. That code has been removed and I will be working on a security review over the next few days.

For what it's worth, going directly to the website always worked. It was only when accessing the website off of Google or other search engines that the redirect would kick in.

As of this time, Google has the message "This website may be hacked" underneath the listing for the WSCA website, despite the offending line of code being removed. I am working on getting that resolved, but it may take a little while. Other search engines (yahoo, duckduckgo) show no similar comments.

I apologize for any confusion or inconvenience... and as always, appreciate your understanding!

General Discussion / Forum Message Posting Problem
« on: July 08, 2016, 09:20:53 PM »
I'm posting this message partly as an explanation, and partly as a test. Sometime on Thursday morning, our hosting company began having problems with MySQL, which is a database used by the forum software we use. This was not a problem specific to the WSCA website, as it affected literally hundreds (if not thousands) of other users. They were promptly made aware of the situation and began working on a fix.

From a practical standpoint, what was happening was that the MySQL database would intermittently be operating with "read-only" permissions. When this occurred, it was not possible to add or modify existing messages to the forum. As the problem resided at the server level, there was nothing that I could do, except for report the problems and work with the hosting company while they developed, tested and rolled out a solution.

There have been several times over the past day or so that things have seemed to work properly, only to have the issue return after a while. At the time that I'm writing this (22:16 on July 8th), it seems to be working properly and I have been able to add messages without any error messages or database write failures.

We'll see how things work over the weekend.

As this does not affect the main WSCA website, if any clubs have problems posting results, please e-mail them to me (using the webmaster link at the bottom of the front page of the website) and I will post them directly on the website. My schedule is very busy this weekend, but I will be as prompt as possible in getting results up in the event that we are still having issues with the forum software.

As always, I appreciate your patience and cooperation!

General Discussion / 2015 Event Schedule - CLUBS PLEASE READ!
« on: January 11, 2015, 08:52:18 PM »
The 2015 Shoot Schedule has been entered into the on-line calendar. I would very much appreciate it if someone from each of the clubs would go through and check their own events, to verify dates and details. If there are any omissions or corrections to be made, please post a reply in this thread and I will take care of it as soon as I possibly can.

I'm asking you do post here, so that I have one place to review for these issues.

Thanks much!

General Discussion / MN Horse & Hunt Club Fire
« on: December 31, 2013, 05:34:38 PM »
I just found out that the MN Horse & Hunt Club in Prior Lake, MN lost it's main building to a fire last night. Fortunately, no one was injured and they are able to move the registration to their lodge. They hope to be back up and running by Jan 2 (hunting) and Jan 3 (shooting).

Having shot there many times and always enjoying the facilities and the people, I wish them well and hope that they quickly and completely recover. <-- More pictures and up-to-date information

I have loaded all the 2013 events into the on-line calendar. Club owners/managers should look through your events and let me know if there are any errors. Also, if there is anything specific you would like added (i.e. in the "Description" box) for certain shoots, just send me the text of what you want.

Any e-mails can be sent to:

General Discussion / Website / Forum Access Problems - RESOLVED!
« on: September 10, 2012, 02:50:39 PM »
As mentioned on the front page of the website, our hosting company is experiencing a widespread denial of service attack.

They are fully aware of the problem and working on a fix. In the meantime, there may be periods of time when you get error messages or are simply unable to access the website and/or forum.

Please be patient and I will post updates as I find more information.

Thank you!

Mike Flanagan
