I don't know either, but I bet it is like hacking a website. But someone else have a better explanation.

PS: Stop repeating threads! Read the forums first!

DDOS Has already been mentioned a ton of times in the forums in the past hour. Not only this... but there is something called the World Wide Web. Sorry if I'm being too bossy... I just want the forums to jump out of this matter.

Dude... How many times do you think I have seen the post " What is DDOS? " in the last hour. The answer is ALOT. By the way, I would prefer to be playing Growtopia without being a mod :)

"ddossing" can be used as hacking someones router/internet connection, sending packets to it to overload it which shuts down your internet for a certian time, Shutting down peoples wifi is illigal and ddossing a server/business interrupts the flow of business which prevents the owners from making money which can get the doser in jail, a popular way to ddoss someone is by simply checking there IP.

You say that Ddos is mentioned a lot of time on the forums. Then why don't you just tell us what DDOS is? Don't make a thread if you don't have an answer to the question the poster is asking!

No! You will definitely not get hacked. DDOS Just affects the server.

DDoS is an attack on a targeted attack to an IP address that takes down the internet connection for a certain amount of time.

(Disconnecting and being unable to connect afterwards)

DDOS is child's play which is a method often used by under-aged posers. That is all.

1. Ddos != hacking
2. Ddos is multiple sources, dos is just a single one
3. You can't get in legal trouble for dosing someone, people like to say "we'll if it's over x dollars in loss-" but it can't work like that for several reasons, money lost is only measured by "possible revenue lost", there are many viruses that install programs to make you a part of a hive (so you really can claim it's just a virus), and some other reasoning behind ddosing being a joint effort and no one alone did x amount of damage. However if you incriminate yourself, you likely will get into trouble.

Personally,
I don't boot people to feel like a "l33t h4x3r" or to feed any hunger for power. I boot the "I'm gonna find u, I tracked ur ip (thts Internet protocol if u didn't know x), I'm gonna do ur mom rite after xD I'm a part of anonymous I bet u don't have a mac as good as mine" because of reasons you can think of. Their Internet goes out for a couple hours, the kids parents get mad and try to contact me, give screenies to them, never talk to them again. Still I understand it's dumb to boot anyone for any reason, but it's always tempting, and people literally ask for it.
