Recent Forum Outage -- 8/4/2014 3:00:00 PM
Dear Forumites,

I'd like to apologise for the recent disruption to our service. No one likes it when they close your local for renovations and it was with profound regret that we had to close the forum doors over the past few weeks.

Now, an explanation. Our long-standing members will know that this forum has been around for quite some time and the technology underpinning it is far from cutting edge. As a result it has certain vulnerabilities that can be exploited by the less savoury elements on the Internet. Long story short: someone with a lot of time on their hands and little regard for well-reasoned movie discussion hacked into the forum and had the hacking equivalent of a house party. Ornaments were broken, carpets were stained and the fridge door was left open all night.

As a result we've had to do two things. First, we needed to repair the damage and recover the posts that were lost. Second, we had to make significant changes to the forum code to ensure that the same exploits couldn't be used to let this party crasher stage another all-nighter in our front room.

Both operations have been a success but all such things come with a cost. In battening down the hatches, we've had to remove elements of the forum's functionality – image uploads being the primary one – so you'll find a few things don't work exactly as they should do and when it comes to Avatars and the Movie Poster Mash-Ups, you'll need to use Flickr or similar external hosting solution to post your entries from now on.

Of course, with a forum this old, removing bits may have knock-on effects (it's like a giant .ASP Jenga tower) so if you do encounter a glitch in The Matrix then by all means drop me a line and I'll get someone to bash it back into shape. If you have any further queries about the outage (or simply want to rail against the injustice of it all) then I direct you to this thread.

In the meantime, though, welcome back to the Empire Forums – may they never close their doors again!

James
