    Hey all...

    First off, welcome back :)

    As some of you know, and some of you may not know, the site has been down due to the fact that some phishermen were able to exploit the site.

    Due to this, the old site, and everything on it was no longer considered secure. In order to ensure that we have a secure site, we decided that we did not want to keep the old files or database online at this point.

    So... when you register, I advise you not to use your old forum password. We can't be sure, but it's very possible that whoever exploited us, also got our database, which would have had all our user names and passwords in it...
    If you used the same password on the XoO forums as you do elsewhere, I would advise you to change your passwords there as well so that you are sure your accounts are secure.

    I will be working on bringing up a secure, read only copy of the old forums, but I ran into some problems with missing "plugin" files that are preventing this, so that will end up being a low priority for me, as getting the new forums and site up and running will be taking up all my time.

    Now, the new site is using the default theme, but we hope to change that asap...

    All the old Task Force members, please PM me so that I can get you added to the task force group and helping out.

    All the Game Leaders will also need to PM me to gain Xenate Access...

    Please give us some time to get things up and running again as it will take some time to create all the forums and groups that we will need, but be sure that before long things will be back to normal..

    Thanks,

    Jeb


    PS I know some of you like to get those first posts in, but please do not spam "first" posts... I will delete any first posts I see so it's a waste of your time. If you want to post "first", please make a useful post that adds to the community. Also please do NOT pm me asking about post counts, or join dates etc from the old forums... I do not have time to look at that type thing, and even when I do, it is very unlikely that we will be manually editing those.

    Do we need to reapply to our various divisions? I wouldn't expect it for the games that are out but, what about WAR?

    you will need to reapply for each game, but so far once your approved to the xoo members group, you gain access to the public chat for games.

    I am still working on the member groups for games. (I just ran out of time before I needed to sleep)
    Game membergroups should be up tonight or tomorrow morning.

    ok I am going afk for a bit as I need to run to the store and get a few things before I lose track of time on this ;)
    I will be back in about an hour and I will be working on getting more of the basics stuff setup.

    Commie and Kyoji are talking about graphics and themes now (or hopefully they are ;) so hopefully we won't see this default theme with my hacked in banner too much longer lol

    Anymore task force members please let me or dash know so you can get added to that group and you can help out with that ;)

    All the progress that you guys made in one single day is amazing.
    Note: the coupon has an error, it should read 1 Million Internets.

    PS: Everyone who is working to rebuild the site, you are all amazing talented people who deserve incredible credit. I can not express with words sufficiently how grateful for all your hard work you have put into this. For lack of a better term, I love you guys.

    PSS: Perhaps we can add in some kind of legacy system where people who posted on the old boards can get something special. Make it go back to the original boards too so that the founders can be extra special if you know what I mean.

    I was about 150 posts under 9000, so I'm kinda sad about that. But now I get a chance to start over and show people that I am really a XoO-Forum whore and that they were all legit. None of them were boosted.

    I'm already 1st again =P

    None of it is spam. It's all in response to something, and has some purpose of being there.
