Not sure if its for everyone, but when I try to go to the basic site URL "http://www.cartographersguild.com" I get a message saying "hacked ..." :(

Yep, I got the same thing this morning. I have sent PM's/emails to Arcana and RobA so it should be fixed soon...hopefully.

Strange that it's only the main page.

Good thing. I think it's fixed now.

We've fixed it temporarily, but have not confirmed the vector for the attack, yet.

Site will be up and down a bit as I do some patching and investigating. Thanks for the report!

Is it related with the busy sever problem ?

I don't think it was related to the busy server problem...but I may have fixed that...and I'm going to be monitoring things to see how they behave...we did have some problems in config...again. We'll see.

Great work in getting the site back on again! :)

...but (& again it might just be for me) I can't see any of the map pictures in thread (mine or anyone else's).

They're still there in my maps folder but i don't see the thumb and when i click in thread i get a 404 error? :(

ooops...was testing a hotlinking prevention method and it obviously didn't work...it was hard to test because of performance. lol

What do you mean it didn't work...if you can't link anything it seems the prevention is in full force :)

Well, I was disallowing direct referrers, but it wasn't formed properly. Its fixed now though.
