Having a bit of a disaster ...

Just found out the owners of the software are having legal issue with their hosting provider.

Unfortunately due to illegal content posted by a user on some other forum, the server was seized....

This very bad and hopefully the software provider will have a resolution soon. Worst case some data will be gone their are backups.

The really bad news is that their decision is now final to pull the drives. It will be at least 3 to 5 days for sites to be back. There will be some data loss. Posts and topics are safe as of right now. But attachments, changes to styles, pictures made since 12/30/2015 will be lost for sure.

Any feature that edits files has been disabled till new servers are installed.

I can not edit the forum software at all..

Things like Camillia's contest cab and pic can not be edited, and so on...

Attachments like photos and pdf's will not work for maybe two weeks or so..

So if you want to post pictures, your going to have to use Photobucket, FlickR or some other outside photo hosting service.

Things will be a bit messed up for about two weeks.. Until they switch servers.

I was panicking! I thought the forum had been shutdown for some reason, but I see that was not the case. Phew!
