    Update - 08/15/2016

    Hey guys, Just finished updating the forums to IPB4. If you'll notice it's not very pretty at the moment, that's because I'm going to have to redo all of the skins from scratch for the new forum software. I wasn't really planning to do this upgrade quite yet (Honestly I would've liked to launch with at least one skin) but I had to pull the trigger for security reasons. The last thing I'd want for GDU is to be zero-day exploited by Russian hackers again, especially after all of the effort of reviving the pre-hacked posts. And a new feature to make the upgrade worth the wait: Emoji! ??? Of course the classic emoticons will still be here too I'll slowly work on getting things in order but a lot of fixes will be on the backend after I get GDU Blue and The World BBS skins back up Also probably way more importantly, I'll see if I can get the Twitter-esq chat sidebar that everyone loved to use so much back, I don't know why Invision removed it by default from IPB4. Stay cool everyone

    Please report bugs here!

    p.s. guys this is still the topic to report bugs There are likely to be things that will escape my notice because there's a lot of data on the site; whether it's broken emoticons in a PM or broken URLs I can fix em, just report em here

    The Plan

    So I think I've more or less gotten database sensitive tasks done w/ the merge, you guys are free to post anywhere (Although I'd encourage you guys to post new topics in the non-Archive marked categories because they're all going to get merged together anyway before too long and I'm using 'em still for testing) I guess you could call 3/9/2016 GDU's soft re-launch In case you missed it (who would blame you?) I took the site offline for a few days to recover the old posts from 2006 - 2012 and integrate them into the database. In early 2013 the forums got hacked by a Russian botnet trying to embed popup ads into the forum skins to make more money for them (and to overrun the place with spam bots) I had a semi-recent backup handy and finally got enough knowledge to figure out how to recover it and integrate it. There were some unexpected hitches since the forums had been merged once before (The name GDU came from The World BBS merging with GDU in the first place!) but I think it's all cleaned up now more or less If you're wondering about password compromises, there were none. Passwords are hashed and salted, and the intruders only got to the skin files and uploads folder to begin with. Plus I nuked the database that got hacked three years ago thinking it'd be better to use a backup anyway. If you were going to be hacked as a result of a GDU compromise you'll have seen it already. That said, there are new security measures in place on the server since then, and I'd advise you to reset your password if you've been compromised on a social media site out of general principle Over the coming days I'm going to be doing more work on the backend. Everyone's avatars should be restored, there's a few that I know I got wrong while fixing the database. If you don't like your avatar upload a new one! :P At some point after I get everything settled here I am going to be bringing the forums up to IPB4. Odds are we'll be stuck on the IPB default skin when that happens because I'd like to get the backend up to PHP7 again sooner rather than later (Funny story, user login doesn't work with IPB3 and PHP7 - woops.), but I will work on bringing up GDU Blue, The World BBS, and The Pi Vault skins at least to start. Maybe GDU Classic and a GDU themed black skin too if I'm motivated enough to do it Welcome Back
