As most of you know, a bug in PHPBB2 was used to hack into the site and destroy what we had here at SupraMania.

This wasn't some advanced skillful hack, this was some "script kiddie" who downloaded something and ran it against the site.

This is the second time that PHPBB2 has failed us and it clearly illustrated the problems with PHPBB2. We needed to move up to something more reliable with better support & security.

We are now running a commerical version of vBulletin, which should help reduce the risk of this happening again.

We do have some backups, and we'll salvage content as appropriate. But we will not be doing a full import. We don't want to risk "contaminating" this new product with old PHPBB2 crap .

We appreicate your support and understanding during this rough transition and thank you in advance for helping us rebuild our content.

Regards,
