    I have the forums open in two windows. This tab is still working, but in the other window, I typed in the url and saw "You've been hacked!" appear. I refreshed it, and there's an Index Of/ page, but no forums.

    I'm probably not going to call Josh at 4:30 in the morning, but maybe you can.

    Ignore what I said about the message after rep being different, I had downloaded that torrent thing in RP grassroots, and decided to download firefox again while I got rid of the tool bar I had NOT checked... and it didn't have flash plug in yet. That is probably why the message looked different, not this site's fault.

    edit - well, the message still looks a little different, but unless it means some setting you want changed is off, I think it's fine.

    Do you guys pay that close attention to those things? You'd have to get a spreadsheet going to know for sure

    The bars seem to be normal for everyone. Just less rep points.

    Why not pony up a few bucks if you can, and help defray the costs - lost time for fixing everything.

    I visited that website Nextgenupdate.com and searched around the forum... I did not see anything suspicious, only time RP was mentioned was due to one of the staff members being a Ron Paul supporter.

    Granted, I could have missed it. Searching forums is hard... especially searching for the term "hack" on a gaming forum.

    The backup was taken from January 10th. We have a backup every night, but the support team opted for the weekly backup file.

    This most likely explains lost reps and posts.

    Any other reports are appreciated.

    Thanks for the offers of support. I may do a fundraiser to offset the costs for the new forum software.

    VBulletin 5 beta is out. It's got video and lots of fancy stuff, I'll be upgrading here in the short term.
