    MAn..this really sucks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    I dont blame Phil or PFT..they did what they had to do under the circumstances..but man..
    I really hate humans..
    why do some people have to be such selfish scum?! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    not only did we all lose our webpages and photos, but it also killed many many threads..
    check out my "year in the life" thread:

    http://www.**********.com/cgi-bin....t=16597

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I was just about to do a new update too..
    I still have all the pics..somewhere..but I dont know if I will bother to find someplace new to host them.
    then I would have to go in and manually edit EVERY single photo to change the URLs so the photos in the thread would show up again..
    what a pain.
    I really hate people...
    you know who you are.

    Guys,

    I really do apologize for the deletion of your accounts. Unfortunatley due to the high security circumstances, we could not afford to wait 48 hours like we had hoped to.

    Also understand, the free web space was just that... free. WE started off a couple of years ago stating that you really should back your stuff up ... or make copies, because we weren't sure how long we could support the web space at no charge.

    Secondly, it is true, the actions of a few people ruin a good thing for everyone... but we, as a company, cannot afford to take security risks --- especially if/when we have sensitive info on the same server (which is not the case thankfully). But we did have the content of OUR web site and THESE forums. So if a security breach continued, we potentially could have lost the forums.

    That being said, I have to evaluate each situation and determine which is the best path to take, and unfortunately it was to remove the user space before malicious activity affected the forums, etc.

    In the end, please remember that this is a business. While I do everything I can to supply our community with services (like the forums and web space), I cannot let it take a toll on what pays the bills for a number of people. And I guess... should these forums go rogue - they'd be deleted too.

    I do appreciate the moderators more than they know! And I appreciate the majority of the members who comply with our simple 'rules'! But again, let's watch for those who could potentially ruin this experience (forums) and beat them down before it requires me to take action and do away with terraforums.com (which is not even a remote possibility at this time - so don't worry!).

    We can always find more web/hosting space somewhere, but another terraforums/pft? now that would be a horrible loss.

    lol,
    I think most of us would get violent if we had someone stealing resources from us to potentially harm us. Nothing worse than having to pay for the electricity that's shocking you on the electric chair.

    As Capslock indicated, we still have the other hosting site, that was provided for us:

    cpforums.org photo gallery

    I am fortunate. I uploaded mine from disk. So I just have to do it again.

    I figure you can not get all that ticked because it was free service. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Unfortunately, there are many members that are on vacation and by the time they get back to TF, they could be in shock. I'd also venture to say that most if not all of us have things backed up in one way or another. It'll just be a little time-consuming to redo.
