Emails and ISP addresses.  Their email accounts can be used to find business accounts, facebook accounts, or other information people don't want out there, and ISPs give up the members actual location or could possibly be used for other things.

 

I'd just rather not risk it personally, but if you really don't think it's that big a deal I could just go into the accounts from this computer.  Just keep in mind, all of the accounts she accesses on this thing have been hacked I don't even know how many times in the last month...

Wait what?
I don't know where she got a virus.

Hold on tho.  If I log into Bluehost, let's say worst case scenario, the wrong person somewhere gets that password.  The worst they could do from there is shut off the hosting, and delete the icons/banner.  It's not like they could actually do anything to the forum itself, right? 

And if that happens, and the pw and recov email are changed as well, all I have to do is contact bluehost and get it straightened out.  It's not like the actual forum or anyone's personal info is jeopradized by that.  At most you would have to reupload the icons / banner, and the forum would go down for a day or two.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but if that's all the case I can get into bluehost today and start working on it. ( I've been watching bluehost tutorials over the last couple weeks getting prepped, but whatever I do I'll be in contact with their tech support.)

@Garchompmat - Sorry I didn't do it sooner.  I kept thinking it was only going to be another day or 2 for the fix, then finally when it was done, there was a day or 2 where the forum wouldn't even let me register.  Just kept returning errors.  I do feel bad for keeping everyone in the dark as long as I did, none the less.

 

@Big Fella - Thanks for the well wishes amigo, I think it's all gonna turn out fine in the end.  Even better possibly because I'll know the ins and outs of our hosting service which might allow me to increase the page speeds / efficiency.

@ Jessica Smoke, yes there is some slow down still, but it depends on connections to the forum (members online)

 

Monkey man I hope you can recover from this fuck up. I did, and so can you. I hope.

Rest assured that as soon as I get my computer back, I will be on these problems like a pack of cheetahs on a 3 legged wildabeast.

Progress update: I got my computer back from the specialist yesterday... and it doesn't turn on anymore. -_- 

They didn't even touch the computer, all they did was clone the drive I sent with it, so it was probably some happy camper at Fed-Ex kicking the box around.  None the less, the specialist does cover shipping costs and liabililties, so they are going to cover the repair.  I dropped it off this morning at the mac shop, so as soon as they get done with it I'll be back in action. 

I'm so sorry everyone has to put up with the slow down.  It's driving me up a wall to see all this happen and not be able to do anything yet.

if you had a PC at least you could have fixed it easier.

 

but you got a mac...it doesnt get virus' but when it does it just gives up life.

 

windows 10 is the way to go, especially with all the accessories that exist.

Yea that's exactly what it did too.  It worked perfectly from the time I got it until about 3 seconds after I messed with the archiving, then it just completely gave up.  According to the specialist it was just the inevitable hardwared degredation over time that did it.

 

I can't go back to windows tho, I'm way to thrilled with macs simplicity and general lack of problems. IF, *kicks self* I had been backing up my data regularly (like I bought that freakin 2tb external for) I would have been able to buy a brand new large ass iMac for the amount the repairs cost me. 

On the upside tho, I now have 4tb of storge space.  Given the fact that about 3/4 of my computers hd was full of mugen stuff, it's going to be nice to be have some more space at least.

Welcome to adminhood. Anything that can go wrong, probably will, all at the same time. :)


Yes, so I see.  This is my first time adminning, and the first time I had to deal with anything like that, let alone four things at once.  It's alright tho, I'll get better at as time goes on I'm sure.

Taking another break from the mugens?
