This blog entry will be a quick one, but a needed one. I know a lot of people have received
emails from my website saying that their accounts were deleted, and I just want to quickly explain what
happened. We have been dealing with a large cyber-attack on our website attempting to get
administrative login information. In order to combat this and make sure all data was safe, we added a
new firewall and anti-spam program. Unfortunately, in the implementation process, this led to many
legit user accounts being purged from the server and deleted. I want to assure everyone that this was
not done intentionally, and we certainly hope that if you were one of the people whose account was
mistakenly deleted, you understand that this was not done to single you our, or in any way personal.
Technology at its finest! The program is now installed and running correctly, and my website developer
assures me that we should be back to smooth sailing. If you were one of the many people whose
account was deleted by the automated program, we have it fixed, you should be able to remake the
account, and login. Should you find yourself having any issues, questions, comments, or concerns, you
may also email me [email protected] and I will help resolve.
Unfortunately, we are unable to restore any posts that were made by affected accounts, so any
posts to our current photo of the month, or the current grow off competition, or the contest entry, will
all need to be re posted or reentered. We sincerely apologize for the confusion, and any hurt feelings,
and the time lost. I know if I received an email saying my account was deleted without any known
reason, I wouldn’t feel to great about it, so I hope to put everyone’s mind at rest. We value each and
everyone of you and hope to see you back on our forum and in our contests!
