Forum updated: PHPBB 3.2

Due to security issues, I had to update to the latest version of the forum software, phpbb 3.2. That, unfortunately, broke a ton of stuff. So I have updated the extensions and fixed what I could. Alas, the big thing that broke was a lot of the custom themes. I have one theme working now, and disable...

Re: Norton flipping out about our site

There was a recent report of bogus material, and google sent me a note. I submitted a request for them to re-inspect, because the spoof material wasn't actually on OUR site, it was on a different arvixe site. Google removed the report, so we're currently clean. Norton (I believe) gets its info from ...

Re: Politics forum?

Yeah, if we do it, I think it would work best if it was opt-in (e.g., wouldn't appear unless you subscribe). And Ont: I agree with you that text-based is problematic, but this was a momentous week in history for the U.S., and I want to broaden my understanding and foster open discussion. Most of the...

Politics forum?

What would you all think about me creating a politics forum here?

If I did it, I would set ground rules (no memes, no personal attacks, no ad hominem attacks, no links to partisan sites, etc.).

Re: Forum Rollback

Arvixe (the host) confirms in an e-mail sent to me at 9:00am today that they completed a migration to another server. So apparently the server they rolled us to had a snapshot taken on October 6th. I'm so sorry, you guys. I know that quite a few posts were destroyed. I'm eternally dissatisfied with ...

Great to have you back, Zug!

Why "UDM"

Just realized that this forum name isn't quite obvious in what it means, so a quick explanation: In the old days of WoW (around 2005-2008) there was an in-game Horde-side Feathermoon guild alliance between these three guilds: Umbral Advent (guild leader: Raels) Brotherhood of Dusk (guild leader: Kay...

Sorry for the downtime

That was a long outage. :( The backdoor that led to the phishing attacks that BB noticed first was apparently not completely removed. While I was on vacation, more phishing themes were installed in the WordPress front end, and Arvixe suspended my account. It took several days from my return on Tuesd...

Re: Norton flipping out about our site

I've locked down some permissions and added some security plugins to alert me if files are changed without my knowledge.

I think I've repaired the damage and closed the door, but would appreciate if you all alert me right away if you see anything suspicious.

Thanks!
