    Really starting to worry here.

    I was thinking of redoing my grow journals; but I probably don't have all the images on my comp still,
    and besides what are the odds anyone will view it before it gets deleted again?

    There is a thread from the 16th where it says only bitch about the loss of data there, and the thread is closed 4 days ago.
    I keep losing posts and pictures: something is wrong here and I would appreciate some assurance that the staff is working on it and will inform us when it is safe to resume normal activity.

    It's not okay right now - so please save snide comments for when I got it coming. Thank You.
    F.M.

    We're sorry that you lost the last 3 weeks of posts. We do a back-up daily, but unfortunately had to go back to Feb 20 to restore the site.

    We certainly hope that it will not happen again.

    Thanks Man.

    I have 4 or 5 testers of new strains I would like to journal.
    I don't really know anyone here; but I thought those guys in that seed hoarder thread sound pretty cool.
    And I like being able to journal even though I am still learning best practices.

    So if you just want to delete this thread I don't care.
    Respectfully, F.M.

    The site got hacked a while ago.
    No data was compromised, it was a simple overwrite hack which replaces the info and links on our site with links to a different site.
    No data was 'taken' and no personal information was taken. There is nothing to worry about.


    You cannot 'keep' losing posts and pictures, the site has been reverted to the last saved state (which was in february).
    Therefore about a months worth of data was lost, which is sad but unavoidable.

    Every site gets hacked now and then, be happy about it was a very petty hack which only replaced links on the site, no info or data was stolen.


    It's been safe to resume normal activity for a while now, there are no issues.

    I hope you have some substantial 'proof' to back up that claim, otherwise you are spewing copius amounts of bullshit.
