Gundam Watch Hacked, New Forums Result!

posted in: News | 0

On Monday, November 7, 2005 at approximately 6:30 p.m. the Gundam Watch forums were hacked by parties that have been identified. Currently our web host is seeking redress through the legal system.

Because of this event, the message board was down until 1:00 a.m. November 8, 2005.

The damage has since been repaired with no loss of data. However, the version of Invision being used is not fully secure and open to exploitation on the part of trusted members.

Accordingly, Gundam Watch is in transition to a newer and hopefully more secure message board system. We hope to bring about this move with the least amount of data loss and intend to keep these forums in an archive state when the project is complete.

Personally, I抦 very sorry for the inconvenience to the members. Sadly, it appears that some individuals take their perceived dominance of Gundam fandom far too seriously. Please accept my apologies for the downtime, and be assured a solution to this particular problem is being worked on.

The new forums are up and active with all threads and membership information intact!
