The founder has been really busy. with work, etc he has trusted me to take care of this. But if its really necessary for the founder to be here i honestly can't say when he will have time or even be available to get on here to dicuss the issue with you. but i think its safe to say that the site speaks for itself.

Please read this.

Also, tell me the exact time when your forum was hacked.

I will be forwarding this to Leeloo, she will decide if anything could be done as you are not the founder of the forum.

Thank you. Also it was hacked I would like to say Monday late night? We already have a new site and have old user transferring over. so this site is completely dead the only person that gets on it is the hacker and he has all our emails, ip, etc. so we wish to get that out of his hands. we know who the hacker is and will avoid him at all cost. like i said the site speaks for itself. i just cant have a normal day with out the thought of this hacker knowing where i live and all the other users. he already entered the email of one of our users. Thankfully he managed to secure his email from him. The sooner this site goes down the better. Like I said before i really can't thank you enough for helping me with this issue.

Sorry, i can't say if the forum will be deleted or not since you are not the founder. Its upto Leeloo.
I have requested her to get you access back to the admin or do a backup to whenever you want it to be.

Give me a exact time on Monday maybe, like 2nd of July & what time?

It was on July 2nd around 9:00-9:20 pm that's when i went on and notice that the site was hacked. I know that you can't really do much since the founder has been busy for the past few days. but if you could just unadmin the admins of the compromised site then it will help a lot. and admin laxing like proz, sickness, blaze, or gary2 would help a lot since we were the previous admins.
