Wow. All their boards wiped out as of two days ago? Ezboard says a hacker attack wiped out over 9,000 messageboards. Some boards still had data after the attack but as Ezboard rebooted their servers (whatever, I'm a technotard), it was lost, too. Front entry pages have been restored to most boards now and names of forums appear with "225 posts" or "1,987 posts" or however many posts existed in the forums listed on that front page and when you enter the forums, if there were 17 pages of posts in that forum, all the pages are still listed but THERE ARE NO POSTS VISIBLE. It's all gone. Some boards thought they'd escaped but now all their existing posts are rapidly becoming "Uknown User" and "this message cannot be restored." Many members are absolutely distraught over the loss of upwards of 50,000 posts and years of community-building. Some members used their Ezboard as the mainstay of conducting business and are losing hundreds of dollars a day. Most members seem willing to sit tight for a while and wait and see if Ezboard can restore their communities. There is a great deal of confusion in the main thread at Ezboard where all this is being discussed: http://p079.ezboard.com/fezboardfrm98 So many angry people willing to believe in conspiracy theories and intolerant of other people who want to wait to hear what Ezboard can do to clean up the mess. There does seem to be a lack of communication from Ezboard to its members but they may just be trying to have something to say rather than making posts to fill up space. Can any experts here visit that link and come back here and offer your opinion as to what happened? I'd like to understand what actually took place.
