This can get deleted later. This is the only connection to the old forum that I have been able to get into. I keep getting redirected to 8kuns forum site which is really crappy.

Whats up doc??

yeah, owner hacked or some shit.
Took a day to get control back.

Things are fixed, but your browser cache might still be redirecting.
Deleting your browser cache should help if you are having issues joining on your current account/device.

Join the Discord, to have a secondary source of talk in case of this kind of thing.
afaik, we still don't know who or how. so might happen again.. so really, get in the discord.

I have no idea how it happened, but heres a suggestion that *might* have helped prevent this: Hide all hints on the site about the forum software being used, including version numbers. I have no idea if it was a factor in this case, but neckbeards scan the web all day every day looking for vulnerable forum software that have known exploits, so you can make the site effectively invisible to the laziest of them.

It would have been a much cooler hack if they re-directed us to the Pantheon pledge page. Re-directing to 8chan was lazy and not lulz worthworthy imho.

And also use a combination of uppercase and lowercase in your passwords to stop the hackers.

You will never stop the hackers.

I'm from NC. We have a distinct type of southern accent.

Ever listen to Charlie Rose? He'd mostly tamed his NC accent, but you could still hear it in some words.

I woulda talked, but my microphone is in my closet and ehhh... that's effort and shit.

Its not 1999 anymore. That excuse doesnt cut it. Every phone in the last decade has come with a headphone/mic that you can plug in.

Excuse or not, it's true!

It's a pretty decent desk mic. But it takes up real estate on my crap pile of a desk. So if i'm not planning on using it I box it up.

I purged everything on the phone. Cache, history and cookies.

I EVEN TRIED REBOOTING THE PHONE!!!!!

My PC's fine, after I nuked FF's cache it stopped redirecting too 8retardedfucks , but some odd reason I can't get my phone/tablet to stop redirecting.. And I see absolutely nothing on network activity when they try and connect, so someone has done some major fuckery too do this..
