ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT MAIN SITE'S TEMP CLOSURE
We've been working diligently on V3 of the site, which boasts a brand new design, several awesome new features (including manga information), and better usability.
In the interest of disclosure, approximately one month ago a person found a security hole in the site (presumably through the older version of vbulletin) which allowed him to send a mass spam email for his anime stream site (I'm sure a lot of you with forum accounts got it). As it turns out, this person had greater access than we could find at the time.
Since we don't know the exact hole he found, we thought the responsible course of action would be to take down the old codebase, wipe the server, and speed up the production of V3. We are doing our best to ensure that the new site is secure. Just to be safe, I'd suggest changing your passwords.
In two weeks, V3 alpha will launch. This version will not have any of the new features, but will have the new design and (hopefully) all of the old site features in place. Keep in mind we are having to finish design and develop the old features from scratch in only two weeks. A lofty challenge, but we are up for it!
The official V3 launch will still occur in the beginning of October, and will have the new site features.
Your site accounts, anime lists, recommendations and all content are safe and sound. They'll be back in 2 weeks.
For now please enjoy the forum. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Stick around for a new and improved AP.
