First topic message reminder :

You can probably already see the site has been "hacked" once again and everything has been deleted. One of the admins, firestorm, has been hacked. Here's proof from the security page within the admin panel that he's been hacked for sure:

Spoiler:
 

As you can see, Kira simply used the "Forgot my password" to get into his account.

I have banned firestorm's account, so firestorm feel free to create a new one. Just wanted to let you all know how this has happened again.

Admins will discuss what we will do next. Most likely we'll have to move to another forum, although the reason this has happened was because firestorm's password was probably easily guessed. In other words, it's barely a hacker, just someone who was nothing better to do. Although they're both the same thing...

No one can hack, they can just use cookie stealer, or hack your mailbox and then change the pass, and there is option to remove "I have forgotten my pass" for admins, so you're safe.

Who would use a pass like yugioh its quite obvious xD.

My password is random numbers and my account was hacked on my team forum. The hacker did not use the "I forgot my password" thing nor did he guess. I was talking with Ace, some of you may know him, he's into this stuff. xD He told me we're not dealing with a nub who randomly guesses passwords, this guy knows how to hack. :/

So forumotion is a problem, considering it is easier to hack than other hosts.

I think the solution is quite obvious. You've been saying that forumotion isn't safe for quite some time now, so, all you gotta do is decide wether you want to stay with a weaker host, rather than moving to a new host.
A new host would be the best option, regarding the lack of security, with forumotion as our host.

Guys we've already found a new host and we're experimenting with it. For the last time we are moving to a different host.

I guess that's what we were all waiting for, a final decision. I've noticed that a few members are confused, so I suggest you should make a final topic, that will be shown on the "Home" page. So everyone that visits this website, will know that we've moved.

This post was written in regard of those members who were, and still are confused about all of this.

Release the site, as long as the mods and admins have strong passwords, Kira can't do anything to the site. Be wary of the links you click and the programs you download as well.

Finally, feel free to use this to redirect people to the new Duel Kings, paste it in the "Site Description" box in your forum which not sure, but I believe it is in:
General -> Configuration -> Site Description

The number after "content=" is the number of seconds it will take to redirect to the new site.

Code:
<meta http-equiv="refresh"
content="1;url=[DUEL KINGS URL HERE]">

Have fun, be safe...
