I want to welcome everyone to our new temp board, until Leaf Ninja itself is back up and running. I hope that everyone manages to find their way back and sticks around until the time Shika and the others are able to get Leaf Ninja up and running.

Thankies! I'm glad that the site has a new board up and running! :) Were the costs prohibitive for the vBulletin board?

Hiya Hanzo! Actually, you're the 2nd person here, and I'm the 3rd.

I'm going well, I went to a large anime convention on the weekend. I found lots of cool stuff. I found a Hinata/Neji windchime.

Well, Shika and the other admins from Leaf Ninja didn't make this board, I did and I'm still waiting for them to email me.

But welcome to the temp board of Leaf Ninja! ^_^ I'm glad to see members are finally coming and joining this forum.

Yea, the yahoo board just didn't seem to be working so I got the idea to make a temp board until the real forums can be put back up. But welcome! ^_- Glad to see more members are making their way here.

Well, I guess you guys deserve some type of explanation. A few weeks ago some unknown party began to DOS attack and e-mail bomb my web host Netrillium and the company they get *their* bandwidth from. Unfortunately Netrillium blamed us simply because the mail that was sent claimed it was coming from the Leafninja website. My host could tell it wasn't us, but the simple fact the massive amount of e-mail had some tie to us made us guilty enough in their eyes to suspend our account.

So a week goes by and I'm still unsure whether I want to move to a new host, I finally find a new host and decide what the hell. So about a week ago I upload everything to the new host at about 1 in the morning my time. So the site is up and pretty and then when I wake up in the morning I see an "Account Suspended" message when I go to the site. Well I e-mail my host and find out they had their automated support system mailbombed as well. The pattern was the same, it looked like it came from our site but it didn't. The fact it looked like it did was enough again in their eyes for them to dump me. Thankfully they didn't charge me anything which was nice.

So here we are, a temporary page on the site of the company I registered the domain through. Will the site come back? I have no clue. I have some nice offers from Narutoinfo and Narutofan to host my site, but because of the nature of my career and job I can't be affiliated with sites that host copyrighted material. Also the fact that these kind sites offer me help when some accused them of copying my content in the first place seems fishy.

Well, that just sucks. Hopefully the idiots who are doing this will stop soon so that the site can be put back up. Isn't there a way to track down the ones who did this? This happened to my friend once and she managed to find out who hacked into her domain and the host she was using.

Damn, DOS attacks and email bombs suck. I wonder how they managed to hit the site right after it got back on its feet. Maybe a new domain name might work? Leafninja.net or something. Are there anyways to defend against them? I mean, I'm sure much larger sites suffer the same problems (I know AnimeSuki did) and they seem all right.

Eventually, unless the attacks are entirely automated, they might stop and the .com could be re-used. I'd hate for this to be the end of Leaf Ninja. :(

I dont really know what your talking about, but it sounds pretty rough.

Hope everything comes back soon though. I have been forced to spend my days posting on a forum that I absolutely hate.

On another note is anyone as creeped out by this smilie ;), as I am.

I don't know how to change similies and last time I tried, I killed my old forum. Literally. The other admin had to go and fix it for me.

o.0 You should be able too, Ino. Let me see if something happened that changed so settings. I didn't set up anything in a way to keep people from posting in their own topics. Try again and if it does it again, PM me or Shika.
