I'm not sure, but it really seems our forum has been hacked. Mad According to the forum manager, it seems the Delgine style has been replaced by some weird SQL statement using slang english. The forum seems to behave normally though and I will take actions to fix things asap. That might take a while though, as I'm not sure what the problem really is.

I'll keep you posted!

Was wondering why you were messing with the colour scheme. I had to check twice to make sure I was at Deled.

The old Deled scheme was awful anyways...

Every PHPBB I goto gets hacked eventually. It's like they all take turns going down. PHPBB is notorious for getting hacked. The wrestling board I post on was hacked and it started slipping a little trojan or virus to everyone who visited the main forum index page. (You have want to searech the source of that for any IFRAME html!)

Facking hackers. I really don't see the point in hacking somewhere with no protection. My website was just a simple thing I edited on notepad and uploaded, it got hacked. I mean, big achievement people! Not that I support hacking, but why don't they try and hack somewhere that actually has serious protection, surely it'd be a bigger thrill (presumably why most hackers do what they do).

Found (part of) the problem. Seems someone has been messing with the main header template file. I'm not sure that's all of it (i think not) but at least it is part of the problem. Stay tuned!

Things should be back to normal now, except for a little finetuning of our CSS. Also upgraded the board to the latest version of phpBB.

The biggest problem with phpBB forum is, it's like microsoft. (to hackers)
It's big, it has built in security, might be a challenge.
I have 2 phpbb forums and love it. It's just keeping on top of it.
What surprises me is how are the hackers getting thru to the server? They shouldn't be able to upload their hacks.
I dunno. Anyway, great job getting things back to normal.
