    I guess AZ is a high profile target, gets taken out a lot!

    It's probably not difficult hacking, as in my mind AZ is run on 1998 web technology. Looks like about 2 weeks of posting was lost.

    Yeah, the last restore we had was June 20th. So unfortunately yes we did lose some posting history.

    But; BenedictGomez is right, the site is running Vbulletin 4.2.x which it has been for 8+ years. It is running long in the tooth. I have to do PHP upgrades but the forum isn't compatible with it as it stands but the front end (wordpress) is. It's tricky to keep everything up nowadays, at some point soon I will need to make a decision on moving to a new platform (maybe xenforo). That's still some time away but, you know, in the next couple years.

    Have you considered Discourse? I frequent two forums that were previously running vBulletin 3.x and 4.x respectively until they upgraded to Discourse after shopping around for various upgrade options for several years. Note: Discourse is completely separate from the Discord app.

    I haven't yet. I was looking at xenforo, and I've heard of discourse. Thanks for the recommendation, I will check into it. Vbulletin definitely has limits on how much longer it will run for. Even the newest version (vb5) is getting long in the tooth.

    Ok great. I thought this website was joining On The Snow to the graveyard of digital media.
