  • Forum Problems

    I apologize for the problems the last 24 hour.

    There is a vulerability in one of the vBulletin plugins we are using. This lead to a hacker bot gaining control of some admin accounts.

    This attacked has hit hundreds of vBulletin sites this week.

    Some email messages were sent out from this attack.

    I've fixed the problem and am working to secure the site now.

    All extra plugins are currently turned off. This, unfortunately, includes our spam filter. As you may have noticed this has caused us to have an increase today in spam posts. That will be fixed soon.

    Thanks for your patience and support while we work through the problem.

    Sorry for any spam messages you may have recieved.

    Thanks!

    Another weird happening, as soon as I got on this site, I was directed to a site called Nazi bankers or something like that. I had to quickly hit the back button and I was playing ping pong with site jforjustice dot co dot uk.

        I'm turning the site back on now.

        If you see any issues, please let me know.

        It may take the admins a couple of days to clear out all the spam posts.

        Thanks for your support!

                      I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


                      They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

                      There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

                      Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.

                        The software that scans posts and filters out spam is being patched right now, so the spammers are going to get through, but not for long.

                                The site continues to grow. It is amazing the amount of growth during the last two years!!

                                Because of this growth we are now stressing the PowWows.com server. I've purchased a new server and over the next two months will be migrating the site to the new server. Please be patient as...

                                Starting Wednesday we will be working to move to a new server.

                                We have outgrown the current server and need more horsepower and space.

                                This is a good problem to have, and means we are continuingto grow.

                                Hi! Such a very, very cool site! Do you anticipate changing your website character set to utf-8 anytime soon? I've noticed that the character set is ISO-8859-1 and that this set doesn't support unicode. The character set of many Native American (NA) languages can be correctly replicated and displayed...

                                This update was a long time coming!

                                The forum software has been updated to the current version of vBulletin. The site is also now on a new host.

                                Several of the features and plugins have been removed. These were outdated and no longer worked...
