It seems that someone did not like us and they destroyed our database. They did not get any information, that was all safe, but the public data was killed.

Fortunatley we had a backup from Sunday so most of the data was safe. Anyone who joined after the backup has to rejoin.

Also, we upgraded the board and there are a few security fixes in place now. Many other people with the same board software had the same problem.

Sorry about the inconvenience.

It happened to the Canadian CHA bbs just a short time ago. Looks like they are out to kill the boards databases. I don't think a lot of them had backups. Glad you did Jesse .. Excellent job! I can't understand why hacker types would be so interested in these kind of boards. I bet a lot of
hackers would be in agreement with the material and / or content on this board / website.

Hopefully, the extra security features you added will help in the future Jesse

All the best ..

Thanks for getting it back up and running so quickly.

Sir ...

Good job, Jesse, and I'm very glad you had backup, too.

I've noticed we've been getting much more activity lately, and while that's good for the most part, trouble often seems to come along with the good.

I'm just glad TVNL is back up and running.

Eva pointed out that the Avatars (and smilys) were gone. I reintalled them all.
