    OK, what the hell just happened?

    All of today's posts (after approx. 5:00 am eastern time) just disappeared.

    These posts aren't showing either, the only way I could reply was to navigate back.

    Looks like there's been some updates or board changes. Maybe if the posts were made during the changes the forum saved back to a certain time?

    Yes Elwell, all in your head... none of this is real... remember that red pill you accepted so long ago?

    Nothing has been real since then. o-O One of us... one of us.... one of us....

    Apparently some guy in Germany was attempting to rip conceptart.org which caused the loss of some functions like being able to log in and post new threads etc. It should all be solved by now.

    Small update: there might actually be a few more minor issues with the forums over the next few days because of the hack attempt yesterday. There's also some shifting of servers going on at the same time, so don't freak out when you can't access your favourite forum for a bit. Things are being solved

    It's a few things. We are migrating to a new server array setup that has been installed to help make this place run smoothly, and faster. Right when we are doing that work we got hit by the leech from Germany hwo has since been terminated.

    Missing posts are backed up as we have backups of backups of backups but it may take some time to get it all done as the priorities are security and full operation in the new servers.

    Thanks for your patience. This place is getting very very pricey to run. Fingers crossed folks continue to support the downloads and streaming classes.

    yup, thank you Jason, I was booted off the site all of yesterday and my password was deemed invalid, thought I got kicked out, hahaha.
    For support of this site I just bought 10 downloads before the blow out sale, every Whit download one includes his brushes!!!, two Jason Chans character design, two Coro, Two Manley and Zhanglu.
    I recommend all of them... an extra push, they are so worth it.
    Half German myself and I swear it wasn't me or any of my relations.

    "the leech from Germany hwo has since been terminated."

    I'm imagining Jason in a plane to Germany, with a katana in his right hand.
