All topics in our beloved forum got deleted. :( Dan wrote, he sold his Dingoo and no more needs the forum. He even banned the admin´s IP.
Look yourself: http://a320.freeforums.org
Zear omgmog is making a new board @ http://dingoonity.org/ , but it will take a few days.
What a luck we have the file archive, dcemu has also many (if not all) Dingoo releases still available. What doesn´t kill us only makes us stronger. :)

The only culprit here is the administrator for giving moderator privileges to a nobody and thanks to that, all the interesting dev info is lost forever.

Looks more to me that the board got hacked rather than a mod throwing his toys out. Mods usually can't even see the IP address of super mods or administrators (ie, anyone higher than them), let alone ban them or delete all the topics in a forum. You would have to delete each individual thread by itself which would takes days and you can guarantee another mod or admin would notice pretty damn quickly and ban your ass before you deleted too much.

Wow, check out rule #1 on the new rule list:

1. Always refer to the Moderator as "Senior", "Master", or "Upper". Never refer the the Moderator by his name. The penalty for this offense is a permanent account and IP ban from the forums.

I agree, looks like a hack. Also rule #1 for popular sites is backups... just restore it.

EDIT: The fact that he still has access and no-one has done anything about it leads me to believe no-one has SSH access to the hosting or anything of the sort which is a little silly.

I made the post as "heil dan" with the local 0.31 (thx proxy-service.de):
Thanks Master, your decision was very wise, my Senior. But i think you made a little mistake with deleting the Dingux local.
Here it is:

Please don´t delete it.
All Hail Master

Moderator's note: This is a decent post, but please ensure that you follow the rules more closely. I have made the necessary changes. You will not get a second warning.
He changed Dan to Master and Führer to Senior. It would be funny if it wasn´t so sad.
Umm, what is going on in the forum? I went to India for a couple of weeks, get back and it has gone only to be replaced by some totalitarian regime.
Hi Jim. I replaced the forums with a totalitarian regime.

Hmm ok, a hack seems more likely, don´t know what to think about all that though.

The forum must have been hacked. And, as I wrote in the Dingoo scene Blogspot: I think it violates an (intellectual) property Law in some sort of way. I mean, hacking something: okay, but deleting the info there? That's not hacking, its vandalism. :(

Lets hope a backup will work. And in the mean time we'll keep in contact here. :)

It was a moderator, he thought he banned the admin but was mistaken. That, or maybe that moderator's account was hacked. Either way this is all pretty pathetic.
