Go to:

and use the backup system to restore your board.

If you lose your password, contact with a Manager Wink

The access to google (and others Searching engines) are disable in Robots.txt - How i can fix it?
Already my visitors reduced -80 % in the last 3 days (google analytics and Histats)
I would like to allow again the access to all the searching engines again.
Like before 4 days.

it sounds like they just moved/changed the forum address.
They can not delete your forum without having access to the conformation link that is send to your email address.

I would go through your email you created the forum with and check and see if there are any messages sent for address change or forum deletions. it will provide the link to where you forum is now, but you will still need to log in to your utilities regardless, so send the information off to sanket or joe so they can send you a new pass, to log in to utilities and get your forum back.

If it's possible, did they hack your main admin account, well the email address you created the forum with will still be on record, so worst case scenario is we will have to ask the godfather for further assistance

Please PM me the email address you used to create he forum with.
All i can do is give that to to the godfather and see if he is able to track down where the forum is now?

even if he changed the email i believe you should still have been sent something to be notified of the change, i am not sure and will have to test a few things on my test forum, i will change my email address, and delete the forum and see what happens. i know the forum will not delete unless i click the confirmation link so i am not worried about that, but want to see if i will be sent any thing to the forums email address it was created with along with trying to log in to utilities. Actually i think you should still be able to log into the forums utilities regardless of him changing any email or passwords.
