Dinotoyblog and forum down
« on: March 28, 2013, 02:41:28 PM »
The dinotoyblog and forum are down - I think we may have been hacked. I'll try and resolve this and get the site back up and working as soon as possible...

Well, the database is backed up, so hopefully all is not lost. I'm waiting to hear back from my service provider now.

It hasn't been hacked after all. Just suspended due to an issue with excessive amounts of spam associated with the chat box - I don't fully understand it. Anyway, I've trying to get the site back up and running...

How long is the DTF going to be down? I know you said it would be down all Thursday, but will it be down for Friday too?
Thanks :)

Fryday and the site is still down.  :'(
What if Dr. Admin archive it and start a version 3?

By the way. I love your avatar in this site Tyrantqueen.

Don't worry, all the user data and posts is safe. We aren't quite sure what's stopping the pages from showing...
