  1. Well that was the cries I heard emmenating from their forums, until they imploded that is.

    I know it is'nt good manners to laugh at others misfortune, So Ill say that at least when this place goes down it usually seems to be Oak's fault ;)

    Looks like a few Pokemon websites were hit by hackers recently actually. I won't say anything that'll lead us to be jinx :X
     
  3. Yeah serebii either refuses to load or loads a random forum atm... something tells me SPP will be veeeeery pissed off right now...
    Gary stop enjoying it! :p

    Also, yeah, it is disturbingly mostly my fault when this place gets fucked up >_>... Though luckily, the transfer nonsense that brought us down a week or so ago more or less wasn't.

    Also, I wouldn't say we have anything to worry about concerning hacking here. The way they got into Serebii was through a comprimised e-mail account. We have no valuable details in my e-mails that would leave the way open to get in.

    To be honest, i'd be more worried about Serebii being directed to us and the server getting hammered. There's no way it would cope with the load and we'd end up down as well.

    And Serebii itself isn't really hacked, it's just that the domain's been hi-jacked.

    Total Pokemon WAS hacked though. But that's because Tony's fat. (in-joke >_> lol).
     
  5. I must say whoever did it was rather imaginative. He changed serebii's whole forums to Arabic stylee (read left to right). If he'd done it without actually deleting stuff I might actually be sympathetic. But he didn't so just tarnishes more reputations, *sigh*.
     
  6. I went to check Serebii today an well....you tube came up with the title: Sexual Masturbation Tutorial or something of that nature.....@____@

    "This whole series of events will likely not quiet down for quite some time, so expect Bulbanews to be releasing updates to this story over the next few days, and things continue to unfold."

    Wow. Great. That's exactly what I want to be reading... I visit Serebii, too, but c'mon now.

    Whatever. Its amusing seeing Serebii linked to the words "Long live Martha".

    Works just fine for me, and even Serebii stated that the domain issues had been resolved. If you're still having problems viewing it... tough luck ^^;
