Title: More MNGRR Forum troubles?
Post by: Pete "Cosmo" Barrington on January 26, 2009, 12:03:57 AM
Something seems to  be up wih the MNGRR Forum on Phbb!
Apparently (according to the message) the site is under "New Management" and should be available by "tomorow night"... (but who knows when that is?)
Apparently it needs "any forum member" with thier full "Forum URL" to request it's being unlocked.

It looks like it got hacked to me. The place they want you to go is 'freeforum@noeclue.com' and www.noeclue.com is a dead web site. It all sounds fishy.

All the more reason why I am happy James moved our forum to our own control - and that I was able to implement the automated checker for new forum members, rejecting the spam bots and hackers.

As of today, their site is still hacked. Is anyone there going to do anything about the suituation?
I hope someone from MNGRRM reads this.

All,

The MNGRR discussion forum is back up and running. It is new software so you must create a new login and password.

Please visit often.

FYI,
This section of the WW&F Discussion Forum is now the official forum of MNG. All previous forums have been discontinued.
