A new forum

Due to security reasons (you might not have noticed but we have been hacked, luckily they couldn't do more than post two silly comments under another username)
I have decided to move to another forums software.

The new forum will allow quite a few new things but we might also lose some other things.

I am not sure about these yet:

- Album Mod (the images)
- Shoutbox (on the Portal site)
- the styles (they might change slightly)

There will be a new attachment mod, but we might lose old attachments.

I will try to fix every problem and with your help we might even get the old attachments (which are still needed) back up. As for the Album Mod: I will try to find a replacement.

I am sorry that this step is necessary but I am not in the mood to fix the whole board if the hackers have finally found a way in.

(Which might happen sooner or later with the phpBB. Way too many people use the phpBB and quite a few have been hacked lately.)

I will get the new software next week, so we still have about a week in this forum.

You could help by making a list of things that you would miss in a new environment.

(We will be taking all the postings, private messages and such with us.)

The smilies will of course be there, and I'll try to get the styles as close as possible to the ones we have here.

Pluz, now that i think about it, I really like the New Posts option. Other forums i've been to did have that, like DA's & mine, and i really like it.

As far I have seen it in my test-run we will only lose some profile settings (like birthday, gender, signature maybe - you might have to enter them again). I will keep the old forum inactive for a while, allowing you to copy the data, if that should be necessary.

I actually think it's a good move, it'll make me feel safer with more protection over the forum.

Yup, but they'll always be there so oh well. Theres not much that can be done, firewalls don't stop hackers, they just slow them down. But i understand what your saying...

it's too bad that in order to make them feel better..they need to destroy systems and peoples property... cyber-bullies!
The only hackers worht thanking are the ones working in the C.I.A.....and even they're reall mother f-ers

That is not the full truth. Hackers have certain targets they prefer. In some cases changing your internet provider might help, in others changing your operating system, in our case changing the forum will probably do the trick. (They only attack those things because they are widely spread. If you've found a way to break phpBB, you have found a way to hack thousands of forums. If you have found a way to get into windows, millions of targets are just waiting for you. However if you have managed to hack a wbb - the forums software I'm getting - you'll be searching for some time to find another of those forums.
