It's been hacked.

I was on the IRC server earlier and the hackers were on there.

Interesting chaps.

The passwords in the database were secured, but it is still advised that you update your password here at bG and elsewhere if you used the same password.

We will keep everyone up to date on the situation.

One of them was dressed as an owl, the other one was dressed as kind of gimp-elf and the third one was dressed as a goat.

I think they all have issues.

Even though we don't know their names, I shall put a curse on them anyway.

Thrice now I curse, and from the first, their families shall feel the worse.
Soon shall they see, they'll surely be, in the most dire jepoardy.
Then, as their foe, 'tis I who'll sew, the spell to cause their hearts to slow.
For our shame, for them the same, o'er Underground Gamer their heirs shan't reign!

Alright! We're gettin' there! The Browse page is back!
I can't log on which means (hopefully...) not all data's back yet, but this shouldn't take long... I hope...
