There's nothing that says that a fake can't beat the real thing.

You must not imagine that for beings like you and us there can be laughter. The low men laugh, and we envy them. But for us, the higher ones, there is no laughter, only an unending vigil, purely serious, stretching on into the night.

As mith mentioned earlier, the person responsible was able to gain unauthorized access to an administrator's account. In the process, they left a post indicating how they had done so. We keep thorough logs of site activity, and by making some educated guesses about what the guilty party was doing prior to the attack, we were able to identify one individual whose activity indicated guilt beyond reasonable doubt.

Since we know they downloaded data from the site, our primary goal was to do everything possible to ensure it would be erased. Unfortunately, none of the information on their account identified who they were outside of this site. The past week has been spent tracking down that information relentlessly with great success. I may write more about that another time, but I'd like to thank chamber for being amazing as always and MrBuddyLee for helping with some quality scumhunting(though he was saying he was sure it was Glork all along) and listening to me ramble.

The guilty individual and I spoke and they were adamant that the stolen data has been deleted. We are looking into pursuing legal action to ensure that does in fact happen.

Lastly, we're taking measures to prevent this from occurring again. The method through which the data was downloaded is a feature of phpBB, the software running this message board. It has since been removed. All administators' passwords have been changed, and we will be looking into additional security for access to restricted areas of the site.

Thanks for reading,
Kison

Personally, I'm quite interested to know how did you all find them.

my first reaction was WTF I saw them playing a game together

but then when I checked I didn't saw any games like that. They didn't even played games at the same time most of the time ...

I have literally never seen expedience say "-aligned" or resort to AtE which ira did in spades during Nahdia's mini

You all do know it's pretty easy to play in different ways across different accounts to hide that you're the same person, right?

The accounts have been deleted, I think.
