That's probably because both were running a VERY outdated version of phpBB (sijun anyway) that has many security holes, hope Sijuns database has been backed up... too much good stuff on that forum.
I don't think CA is in danger since it's using vBulletin (and a recent release too).

Eatpoo and Sijun etc...have made mistakes with using Phpbb which is inferior software. CA runs vbulletin and has a secure server system as well as on and offsite backups. The most we will ever lose is 15-30 minutes if the main server system goes down. This is one of the major upgrades we have been able to make since there has been some support with the downloads...and it cost an arm and a leg. Assuming we do not see natural disasters destroy everything in two different states at the same moment, we should be ok for the long run. The system also checks in on all machines every few minutes. If anything goes wrong, adjustments are made to solve the problem. Data security is key. Eatpoo taught the art communities that...unfortunately.
Regarding eatpoo (R.I.P.)...They seem to have failed to back up their site for years and must have never installed backup servers. I wonder where all that hosting money went, that they raised (even I donated back then too). Beer I guess...a simple backup server would have saved five years of digital art history that is now gone. Congrats to the eatpoo mods for finally up and leaving to start their own group. I imagine there is good chance of success for their art community now that they are not working under bigots and drunks.

Join us and get better at art, starting today! LEVEL UP! - at ConceptArt.Org
well, it appears c9 and sijun have kept up with their housekeeping;
both are back up and appear to be functional (though i haven't posted, since im deathly afraid of the talent at both places) the link for sijun at the top works, but for c9, you'll have to follow a new link: this guy
i know this might be stirring up old garbage that may not want to be discussed, but i was wondering: is there any way to get a brief history of the evolution of the art communities? as i understand, eatpoo was a sort of hub where many of the leaders of art communities now came from - i think i'd just like to hear about the glory days, since, despite some of what's happened on that site, i feel particularly beholden to it for turning me away from elfwood/da and into here.
what happaned to eatpoo exactly?
iv been on that site a few times ages ago.
Will update sometime soon.
