    Exclamation The site was HACKED!!!

    ******IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT****** Our server was hacked maliciously by a predator at around 1AM last night . They uploaded files into our server that we did not know of what they consisted of. We made the choice to go back to MONDAY NIGHT, the same files we uploaded during the server change. We did not want to take the risk of trying to reuse the existing data, just in case the predator put something into the database So, unfortunately all posts since Monday have been lost. We also believe the same person stopped the forums from working yesterday afternoon. I sincerely apologize to those who posted, entered the photo contest and registered on Tuesday through Wednesday night. I know that there was not a lot lost, so if you did register to be a member or enter the photo of the month contest you will have to re-enter. Our apologies~
    We have taken steps to try to prevent this from happening again.

    We certainly would love to say some really bad things about whomever did this, but it will do no good and only probably give the hacker the "pleasure" they are seeking. Plus, we are a family site, would not want to say the words we are thinking....

    Hope everyone can forgive us for the site going down yet again....too many times in one week anyway!

    No biggy, just hard to believe anyone would even want to hack this site. I am just glad it is up and running. Feel bad for all the work you have had to put into this in the last couple weeks. Who needs a break right? lol

    Break, not necessary! We just hate it that some members may get upset and quit visiting.... Bulldog definately was working to get it back up the whole time. But yes, would be nice to just post on here and have fun without having to worry about losing everyone!

    Very true. I didnt know it was back up, I just checked it and it was. Did you post on fb and I missed it? Thats what I was waiting for was an update on there or something. Maybe that would remind everyone to check in now.
