As you have likely noticed, many sections of the site have been undergoing maintenance for the better part of two months. This maintenance which includes our Wiki, Forums and Gallery, was necessary for the following reason:
We were hacked.
The main site (Blog) and Oekaki were successfully cleaned and fixed for safe viewing. However, the Wiki, Forums and Gallery were heavily damaged and will not be returning in their previous form. The Wiki will be the first section coming back up over the holidays, while the Gallery will follow later in January to early February. Please take note that the content of these sections will remain the same, but any bookmarks will likely need to be updated when the sections come back.
The Forums, on the other hand, will not be returning as an Invision Power Board. Due to this drastic change, we can offer no guarantees that any of the old forums’ content will be moved over to the new board system. What can be confirmed is that we will not be making the IPB forums available for any sort of public consultation due to the extent of its damage and potential risk for any viewers. ETA on the new forums is still unknown at this time, but we’re aiming for mid-January.We will be announcing the return of each section as soon as they are back online. Thanks for your understanding.
