Where do you start on this one huh?
Well lets try the start.

In the early hours of Saturday morning Dark Revolutions was hacked that about sums that up, members turned up here Sat morning to find the whole forum was gone!
53004 posts when i logged out Friday night to be exact, just one topic remained and that was from the hacker.
And thats all i want to say about him to be honest he wont ever be mentioned on this site again its what these people want and we will not give them the spotlight they want.
i even had the privalage to ban my own Brother has a bonus as it was his account hacked to clear the place.
Anyway we done our stuff and shut the site down for the day while we got to work on stopping this happening again.

So Sunday morning we decided to turn the the forum back on while we waited to hear from Invision to see what they could do to restore the site.
And as you can see they did which we are very greatfull for.
We got updated with a save which was a week old and lost over a 1000 posts and they were just from a few days without the week backup of the board all in all i think we lost about 2000 odd at a rough guess, also quite a few topics some of them have all been replaced now.
We knew that it was possible we would lose what we posted in the period we waited for the board restore but we wanted buisness as normal here.

In this time which was between Sunday and Tuesday afternoon we saw some really amazing things happen on DR.
First the support from all our members was amazing everyone here really got behind us and posted topics and generally had good time on the site showing that we would never be put down by these threats against our site.
So from all the Staff and Admin at DR we thank you all very much.

The Staff as well went on with buisness as normal and kept updating our empty forums, both me and my Bro thank you guys.

On Sunday this Forum hit 403 posts in a day which is a site record and shows how everyone came together at DR, but that was the start.
Monday was yet another day when the post count soared even higher reaching over 425 posts!
Then we have Tuesday when the site was restored about 3pm. Before that time the Forum had well over 100 posts, then from 3pm to midnight the Forum had 394.
So for yesterday the figure went well over 500 posts in one day!
A truly amazing amount i think everyone will agree.
We lost about 5 or 6 members as well after the retore hopefully these people will return to DR and enjoy what is a great Forum with great people in it.

This shows a lot about DR and its Staff and Members that whatever happens we wont get down and give up and will always come back fighting.

I will take this time to thank everyone who stood by us in this bad time and gave us the great support over these 4 days as they always have.
This is for Staff and Members from both my Brother and Myself.
We were very touched by everyones actions and gave us the great will to go on and not get down over these actions that happened here.

As for the Future of DR well at least we have learned the hard way everything is safe here and we wil always be here.
We have lost a few things from the Mod Zone we were working on so hang in there with us while we get back on these things.
Sadly the Christmas Skin went as well although it is safe on my Bro's pc and will be back shortly.
Also a little surprise Akuma was working on is also gone but i am sure he will get that back soon enough.

Now we are going to take this time to upgrade the Forum to a better version of the board and with some greater features that will both protect it and make the site better to use.
Hopefully this will be done this week or perhaps early next week.
This does mean that everything that is on the Forum such as Skins, buttons, banners the lot will now go down and we will be running on a default skin untill my Bro can upgrade every skin we have and reistall everything.
So there is a little warning about that happening.

Right my hands hurt this is a big post and i want to wind it up.

Thanks you all so mush for the last 4 days, but they are now part of DR History.
Its on with the future and that means a even better DR.
And with the Staff we have and you all the Members the future is going to be great.
2005 was a great year here, but 2006 is going to be even better.

The Revolution is now!

DarkHeart & Revolution.

DR is a unique site to be on and something I am proud to be a member of. I think I talk for everyone when I say that the hacking of DR was a horrible act and shouldn't have happened to such a great site. DR was lucky and was able to get its posts back but few forums might not have been as lucky.

You have my support guys, no matter what happens

I assure you, Kaiya and Novallie will return. I'll remind them again tomorrow during our history class.

As for the site, you guys can't ever ever ever make me leave *chains self to site* I won't ever leave! I will support DR until the appocalypse! (How do you spell that anyway?)

In all seriousness though, this site has been a great source of comfort to me. I didn't realize until I looked at the date that I joined, that I first came to DR just a few hours before my mom passed away. Without this site, I'd be a wreck. I needed to be able to talk to a few people who were nearly as insane as myself. And THAT is why, no matter how horrible it may seem, you will never ever ever get rid of me. (Neither will the hackers)


((my apologies for my lack of ability to write a coherant post. My random cheeriness/depression keeps kicking in mid-post.))

Random thought. I did a report on Wales once. In my computer class last year we had to write an itinerary and a travel guide to a place we'd like to visit someday. Most people picked places like the bahamas, and stuff. I picked Wales. It was truly fascinating, and I somehow ended up with the longest report in the class. (We were required to write a three day itinerary. Any extra days were extra credit. Mine was about seven or eight days. And we had four days to do this report)

Not sure what to say about that to be honest, we live in a very small valley in South Wales and its very quiet not a lot going on.
But i like it like that and its very pretty what ever the weather here surrounded by hills, mountains, lakes, rivers and trees.

I think when you lived somewhere all your life you dont really love it as much as you should, so would i move?

Hell yeah bigger house in the nearest town.

Other countries are fascinating! I've never left the USA, but come college (cuz I already missed the enrollment for the high school rotary) I plan to study abroad for at least one year. I'll probably go to Canada. That's a fascinating place too.

yeah, FRP is back and so is a helluva lotta updating. Everythings coming back together though. RP Fest this sunday should draw things back together. If anyone wants to stop by Sunday afternoon and pop in a few RPs or so, just dont ditch us afterwords, ITS A BINDING AGREEMENT!

We lost a couple months of data though, how did you only lose a weeks? IPB is playing favorites again, those b*****ds. :P

Perhaps it's because of when R3V and DH contacted invision before, after those threats were made, so the forum was (more or less) sort of ready for it...
