So... as you may know the electric ferret server was dragged into a dark alley and anally violated by sweaty hackers last week.  In fifteen years running this website, that is the first time that's happened.

 

Anyways, of all the things I wanted to spend five straight days doing, rebuilding a server and reconfiguring all of its packages with a clean install and enhanced security was not on the list.

 

I need a vacation.

 

All the fun stuff I was going to do with the cbub is on hold for now.  I have to do boring stuff instead, like further improving the website security.

Anal rape is always awful. I'm so sorry it happened to the server.

Also, darn. Guess that means the end of season two and start of season 3 of the draft are on hold. But security takes priority, and the wait will only make it so much sweeter.

Shame this all happened, but I'm just happy that it's up and running again. :)

Holy... :o

 

Eh, it might have even been some banned members that were pissed at being banned or whatnot. But it's good to see EF back online. :)

 

BTW, I can still see everyone's avatars with the Light Skin, but maybe that's just on my end. 

 

EDIT: Scratch that. After making this post and even after refreshing the page, I can only see certain members' avatars, not including mine.

Anyways, it might be good if the people that are here spread the word to the others.

I was wondering what the hell happened!

I'm glad the site is up and running. I hate hackers.

The website is basically as it appeared on July 5th. Anything after that, other than the few posts already done tonight, no longer exists.

I guess I'll have to start everything all over again with my character submissions. At least it's back.

This also includes any CBUB matches and characters made after July 5, apparently. Any of you that created any FPL characters in this time might want to check in on those as well.

 

I guess I'll have to start everything all over again with my character submissions. At least it's back.

 

Heh, yep, I was getting ready to post about this. I'll check and see if character adding needs to be fixed.

Yeah, character adding is a no-go for now. Every attempt to add sites as reference sources is being blocked at the moment. :(

Hopefully that is just a temporary thing. Since new characters get introduced out there, always good to have the option to add them here so people can use them. Still glad this site is up.
