    Hi everyone.

    You might have found out that after APSA went down last due to problems with our host, we were also hacked again. However, after a rather bothersome few weeks of fighting with internet hosts we're finally very happy to announce that we're back online.

    Everything should be working correctly, but if you happen to find anything that does not work properly, please let a moderator or administrator know and we'll try to fix it as soon as possible.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone in the forums.

    Kind regards,
    The APSA Team.

    I’m sure it was frustrating what went down, just sad that some people get enjoyment of spoiling things for others. But well done guys, a big pat on the back for working to sort out all the problems and bringing back the forum....well done

    Hi Guys :)

    Thanks, I didn't know that I was 'hooked'. Really missed the interaction these past few weeks.
    Nice to be on again.

    Kind Regards
    Ismail

    Wow, great to see so much enthusiasm in spite of the rather lengthy period of down time, not to mention how many people are posting even though we've told very few people that we're back up.

    Looks like the first thing I need to sort out is getting Quick Reply to work again...

    Only avatars hosted on an image hosting site will currently show. You may find some photo's and attachments missing too.

    Thanks Andre and Ryan,

    I am glad that things are back to normal again. Let us hope that we are not the target of some idiot hacker again.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the posts. It has really been a struggle trying to find time to move the forum and get everything back to normal.

    Ryan has put in a lot of hours to organize a new host and upgrade the forum software. Without him we would probably still be down.

    We have some exciting plans for the forum, so watch this space

    Cheers

    Andre

    Sorry about the avatars, they're some of the stuff (along with pictures and attachments that were hosted on APSA) that I haven't been able to get back yet. I am working on it though.

    Thanks for all the enthusiasm guys, I definitely wouldn't have been so motivated to do it if I hadn't received all of the "Come on man, I need my fix!" emails over the past few weeks. :)

    As Andre said, there are some cool things on the way, this is just a very basic starting point so that everyone is back on board.
