Was The Site Down?

I haven't been able to log on the site since yesterday afternoon. I noticed there are some recent posts missing too.... Nothing past the 4th.

Aww the cool avatar is gone....

Yes the site was down, but I didn't expect it to be up so soon!

It must have been, because I couldn't get on either.

AND...some of the fanfics are missing.

Yep is was down for about a day. And unfortunately it does look like some threads and posts are missing...(some being the polls for the caption game ) I think we'll have to see what Jason says. We'll keep you posted!

Mims, according to a short communication I had with Jason someone had hacked into his server effecting all of the sites hosted on it and apparently the host took it down while investigating the cause and to restore all accounts.

He also said based on what he could read, their backup is from one week ago so any posts since them might be lost. So I guess a weeks worth of post are lost including Anneli's fabo birthday wishes and that not so fabo and oh so long response to Oakhills question number 1. Oy!

But thanks so much Jason for getting right on it. I too expected much longer down time. You're the greatest Jason!!!!



PS: Looks like those all those fanfics and all that effort are gone too, along with their reviews.

I too noticed the site down.....I did also notice that there are no new posts since the 4th. How sad that someone hacked in and messed with things that don't concern them. Some people. Well it is good to see the site back up and be able to interact once again with all you great people.

I'm so glad the site is back up now - I was having serious withdrawals after only a few hours.

I am glad the site is back too, I was finding myself bored with the internet. I usually spend about 60% of my time here and I shutdown my computer a bit earlier than usual last night due to boredom. I went to bed soon after too. I really missed the site and now I'm glad it's back so I can get out of my boredom stage.

Been a little while since I've made a post.

As madewy mentioned, a hacker compromised the server WTBR is on (along with many other sites). The person downloaded all the databases and wiped them out (hopefully that doesn't compromise the security of members' passwords...). Unfortunately, my host's last restoration point was from a week ago. From here forward, they're going to make more regular back-ups, but I guess this should be a warning for me to start doing the same. I actually had a hunch that I should save the database last week. Guess I should start listening to my inner voice.

Glad to see we're up and running again! I actually had to leave the house to avoid checking in every hour!
