    The recent downtime that NF has experienced had everyone worried about the future and continued operation of NF, I'm sure.

    Some child (who, if his appearance on Maddox Forums is any indication, is a complete moron) somehow managed to break into the server and wipe it, leaving us smilie-less and operating on the backup files of the forum.

    He wanted to destroy NF, for whatever reason; It's hard to imagine how anyone who knows NF and has spent time getting to know its members would ever seek to harm it.

    But NF isn't a bunch of data on a hard drive that can be deleted, or a website that can be redirected. To paraphrase the Sandaime, NF isn't just a web link to me. Old members fade away, and new members join all the time; friendships, as real as any in real life, have been formed on NF, and love has blossomed between far-distant persons.

    Even if everyone on NF aren't friends, we're all a family - an important family.

    Even if they break the forums, our house will not fall - every single person who spends time on NF inherits the will to keep that bond together.

    The forums fell, and within a day we were back together. No matter how many times they break our forum, we'll be back together in no time - isn't that right, Dyro?

    Thanks for dealing with our short downtime. I'm told it won't happen again - and if it does, do we really give a damn?

    Dandiame is a neat name.

    This thread and my convo earlier with NN really makes me feel like our admin team rocks. That may seem like blatant sucking up but I'm just glad we're run by such awesome people.

    Nothing can destroy us, it was fun spamming MM and then camping out at Dyro's forum. Everything is an experience and I agree with what has been said in this thread more than any other thread ever. I'm glad other people feel the same way I do.

    Yes! No matter how many times we go down, we'll determinately rise back to our feets again ... you'll have to do more than just hack the forums, hack our spirits, minds.
    Hence, narutoforums aint gonna die as long as we got the spirit...


    Nice speech Dani ^-^

    Yes, yes. I love NF even the "tards" have my affection.

    You never know how important a thing is, until you lose it, I guess and that's what I learned with this down time.

    My life doesn't function well without you guys/girls, without the Music, without the Forum Leader Thread.

    I've been very hyped since we got back online. Love the NF.

    Well, it must be scribbler. A serious or qualified hacker wouldn't waste his time trying to bring down a forum. Besides, wehater people know it or not, anything you do can be easily traced back by certain companies now who have their own high ended hackers to search and hand these felloned hackers to the likes of FBI & RCMP (only scribblers wouldn't know this). So most hackers won't even bother trying something this stupid as there is usually two things that interest them: Money and recognition (even then they are discrete, they usually call up the companies and tell them their security faults. I even have a friend who does this and get payed for it, since he helps them make those systems better) and Narutoforums offer neither to them. It doesn't flush money nor does it have a high ended security system, after all no forums are based on a high ended security system against hacking.


    It is sad though, even as a scribbler, you would have to be really lame to try and bring a forum down. So I agree, that little kid must really be a moron :smile-big.

    For a few days here... I thought I got banned. LOL!

    But seeing that it is forum issue thingy, glad to see I wasn't the only one who had problems. At least, we all went through this together... like a family. Just as KNK said. Speaking of KNK, I gotta have my daily dose of KNK. ^_-

    Narutofan Forever!

    Yeah me too. I mean this week I had two of my finals, So I really had not logged in Naruto Forums. When I did, it gave me the connection was refused. So I though "Holy shit did I get banned?" and tried to contact a few of the members I had on my MSN Messenger list. Sandly no one apart Moe was on and he wasn't responding either. Luckily I remembered that I had acess to Shannro (which for some stupid reason I forgot to bookmark their link) and was informed that the problem was due to a hacking of the forums.

    Great speech KnK-chan.

    I really didn't have much of a life without the forums. It was boring the last three days...I probably would have thought I'd done something to get banned but a friend of mine couldn't get on either so I felt a little better then....It all sucks that the boards got hacked. I wonder why someone would do that? *Re-evaluates the worth of people* Eh. Oh well...It's great to see you all again. Even if I don't know all of you, LOL....Welcome back and I vote to start a Dandaime FC, LOL....Second me if you agree...LOL
