    Ah. Thank you. I was trying to find some here yesterday. I was wondering about the site. I just didn't know until now that the error was the same. I didn't even know this site had a history of being attack until early this morning. I had just signed up. :/ Glad i saveed the patches, game, and the append sets before this.

    It seems like the main site is now finally under maintenance. I don't know what to say about the picture that was posted.. The other parts are still down. :/

      Spoiler: Ransom 

    This is what happens to old sites with decent traffic that do not keep up to date in security matters: they get targeted by black hats that want a piece of the ad cake. I got some friends working in net security and they're always talking about how everything is vulnerable and how easy it would be to fuck up this or that site. Usually people with these skills can make absurd amounts of money legally, since they're highly demanded. Too bad this particular individual seems to be not only a scumbag and a criminal, but also somewhat dumb. Dumb is dangerous with such a skillset.

    I'm really hoping Hong can get the show back on it's feet, but I can forsee a long void period. Patching up a security hole like that isn't easy.
    wow, i actually missed this post...
    Not the first time i see something like this, unfortunately people can be assholes -.- let's just keep rooting for Hong

    Not really sure why you would try to blackmail a user forum like hongfire thats made up of free users with no company, finances or value behind it.

    Who do they expect is gonna pay that ransom? Its not like targeting a business or gov system, its place where people post and talk about anime porn - much of which content is pirated and shared for free to begin with. I mean come on how stupid is this guy?

    All this hacker does is annoy the community and other hackers who don't like people messing with their free porn - but thats all he accomplishes.

    That SAID hongfire should be doing a end of month backup, monthly since crap man made or otherwise happens.

    Well there's the ad money, but I think the guy is delusional about how much HF makes. He's shaking the wrong tree. At the end of the day the only thing he's going to accomplish is to upset a lot of people, including himself.

    On another, more positive note, this place certainly is a nice shelter. Gotta love the avatar and sig limits
    You don't seem to have much of a modding or a picture works community though. Maybe something could be done about it.
    Not about to jump ship, but expanding horizons is always good. I'm unsure where one would post poser pictures, comics, and the like... The Graphics Showcase section I guess?

    I wouldn't be so sure about that...especially with regard to the more explicit stuff.

    As its name implies, this place isn't much into the sort of things folks of HF are used to. But this gotta be one of the few places where there's an active VN community...

    For some reason it never took off here. Maybe because everyone was already settled at another place and communities tend to congregate.
    If you have some good ideas, field them to the mods of the creative section (if you want preliminary feedback), post in Direct Staff Contact (if you don't want a public discussion), or in the Site Support section (if you do want public input).

    If they're self-created, most definitely. If they're things you found and they're hosted on imagehosts, post them in the Picture Corner or Hentai Corner, depending on content. If there's plenty of interest and sharing, we can create dedicated sections for them later.

    Common practice is to put explicit things in spoiler tags and tag them with NSFW.
