The site still looks weird on my end, with the exception of the home page.

Reinstalling the board from scratch. Not sure what happened, but I've been locked out of the AdminCP and can't access certain things on the server, so it's extremely difficult for me to get into the database and make adjustments. I'll update everyone soon. I will get us back up.

Do you know what happened in the first place that broke the forums originally and stripped the CSS?

A lot more than what I first imagined, although I didn't see any problems initially because I was using the mobile version of the site, and I was checking it periodically at work.

 

When I jumped in after work, and on a desktop, I saw the issues.

 

Then, I found out that I couldn't log into the AdminCP, and noticed that the PHP file for the AdminCP was corrupted.

 

I really haven't had time to figure out why, but a great way around that is to go ahead and reinstall the board in a different directory, all new files.  That way, I'm able to keep the old directory.

 

I purchased the IP.Board upgrade, since I don't have access to LN's board license key anymore...running things with my personal license for now (the one I used for my DiscussHoops site).

 

Not sure how much time I'll have to design a skin, but I'll do what I can.  My primary focus was to get everything back up.

Additionally, I didn't see that the blog (front page) was active anymore, and hadn't been for quite some time, so I made the decision to remove it from the website altogether.  It wouldn't have made sense to keep it around any longer, especially if I'm going through the work of reinstalling the forums.

Thank you for the offer, Tensai.

 

It's my understanding that bigfetz and Jackson were the two that put in work to get the community moved to a new board, whether it was temporary or permanent.  I believe I speak for everyone when I say that their efforts were greatly appreciated.

Did anything similar happen with discusshoops? What went wrong with that site, it seems like the activity came to a complete halt?

We were spammed by another board who offered staff positions to our best members...and it was strategically done, because those members also were some of the favorites on DiscussHoops.  That particular site took a lot of ideas from us, were set up almost identically (forum-wise), and had piles of activity because they had purchased numerous other message boards in the process.  By the time I caught the PM spamming, it was too late.

Well, I think one of my mistakes was not making money off of the site, as bad as that sounds.  Ad revenue gave them the ability to buy out other boards, purchase updates and new modifications, etc.

 

When I started DH back in 2005, I promised everyone I wouldn't put up ads.  I was regretting that the second year, lol.
