About the Security and Data Breach Notification
You all will be seeing this at the top of every page...the link in the banner is safe, and it will take you to the Vertical Scope (the new owner's) page explaining a breach in their security involving many of the forums they operate.
This breach occurred back in February, several months before this site was transferred to their servers. It's highly unlikely that anyone here would be affected in any way at all. BUT, VS wants to be sure it doesn't happen again, so, as the letter says, they're updating and revamping their security across all their sites--which now includes us. The upcoming password change is all we're likely to see of it, from what I can tell.
That's about all I know for now, but hit me up here if you have any questions. I'll be glad to find out anything I can for you.
