Thread: Recent Forum Downtime

  1. #1

    Default Recent Forum Downtime

    Hey Folks

    As you might have noticed, our forum was offline over the last few days. That was because there was an attack on our forums. Upon notice we immediately took the necessary measures to ensure the security of your data and accounts.

    As we have to act on the assumption that the forums were corrupted, we installed a backup from before the attack. We apologise for this inconvenience and kindly ask for your understanding.

    Please note: For security reasons all passwords have been made invalid. Therefore you will have to request a new one via the feature “Forgot password”. We would like to point out that you should never use one and the same password for different applications.

    Regards

    I have a number of friends who no longer have access to the email accounts under which they registered for the forum. How do they get back on their accounts?

    Odd, I thought we had a rule that directly forbids mult-accounts. It appears we do not, so I can't give you **** for asking people to break forum rules. :(

    Odd note: it seems our emoticons are all wonky.

    Because of the issues we are permitting it for the time being, they are deleted at the end of the recovery process. We have to do a series of security checks etc before resetting any of the accounts and its quicker and easier to use PM's

    I did that but I'm not sure the message went through. In case it isn't clear, I'm Old Mac.

    The message did get through and I have sent the instructions for the next step. Hopefully we can get this sorted for you.
