PC has been attacked by an unkown hacker. He/She has been using IP address of Arcanine to log in and hack the boards.

Many important threads (e.g. Daily Chit-Chat, MOTM April) are deleted. Many of them were stickied.

Threads rescued for the FR/LG board are- none.

For now, we can just use the smaller threads popping about nearby to discuss the topics until the official ones are open. As the mods say, there is no danger for now but the hacker might strike again.

Here is your customized member of PC, LanceLite, doing a short announcement. Thanks.

EDIT: If you need to discuss this matter, please use THIS (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=7791) thread in the Other Chat section to do so.

Not really IP address...

Anyway, thread is to be stickied as an alert.

Most FR/LG stickied threads were physically deleted so they can't be restored. Which stinks. I don't know why he soft deleted some threads and physically deleted other threads...

Oh well, I was thinking of redoing the FAQ anyway...

Well the baddest part is that those that wish to make experiments on the fr/lg game with codes can't anymore(namely me). I've restarted the thread with the same name as before, and I hope this time it doesn't get deleted.



One word of advice for the host(s) of this chat:get youself a good virus shield a good spam killer and a program that keeps hackers out, beacause they usually use a spam or a virus to hack into your pc(I know I would)!!!

Rumours spread are that a virus did it... x.x;
DEFINITELY NOT true.

Arcanine's email got hacked when CrazyMeowth pretended he/she moved to Georgia and got Arcanine's zip code, something necessary to retrieve Arcanine's hotmail password and therefore gain access to it. Then he/she got vBulletin to send a password via email as he/she had pretended Arcanine had forgotten his password. Then logged in, CrazyMeowth started creating havoc and chaos.
