    HA HA, we got some of you! Yes the site "hacking" was done by us for the festivities of this joyous holiday. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I surely hope no one was really upset by what we did, it was all in good fun, which is something the VH community sorely needs right now, a good laugh. TT had the idea yesterday we should do something, Goo helped us brainstorm, and my wife Rita actually suggested putting the site in a different language, German looked the funniest. Tim then did the logo in Japanese for no reason whatsoever. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] So I am putting the site back now, will do all the monthly updates later tonight. Some of you seemed genuinely concerned, while I felt bad that it was all a hoax and we were toying with you, it was damn funny to watch. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I saw that TT posted on the PD and even the Army had a post about it, so some seemed a but concerned. But we're back, all is good, hope now you guys can laugh like we did. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Damn good job Brett.

    I even emailed Top Timmy on how to detect who stripped them of their admin settings. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    LOL!!!

    Off to edit my site now, after I put out an APB for the responsible parties... [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    You all did a tremendous job with that.

    Though the way the logo was done, I knew no hacker had gotten it - all TT did was modify the VHLinks.com text layer with a Japanese font. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Plus, if they were REALLY stripped of admin powers, they wouldn't have been bolded in the Who's Online list. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    But still, that's outstanding, man. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    We strayed away from doing anything to to the forums, I was too scared we'd screw something up, they're so new and I'm unsure of a few thing still. So yeah there were certainly things that made no sense on the board, but Goo and TT get Academy Awards nominations from me. Hell I even told Glenn about 3 hours ago and not a peep from him afterwards. He seemed quite concerned in his email to me so I HAD to let him in on it. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    You should've seen me. I was talking to my friend, telling them my favorite VH site was hacked, and I was going through at a UBB6 I admin, plotting any potential hacking routes. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    My friend was boggled at what had happened. I was holding out hope the whole way, but you all did a damn good job of hiding it. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Just fixed my site, by the way. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    You had me on my toes all day, tracing things, etc. It was...er...fun, yeah, that was it [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
