Scrapbook City's Hackers

Grrrr.... overnight Scrapbook City's forums were attacked by hackers. I'm doubley cranky as, because I was trying to find out who they were (to see if I could fix anything), their rude websites downloaded some yukky viruses to my PC!! I've spent the morning trying to clean up my computer. Grrrrr.

Yesterday we had a new member join up the forum, who posted SEVEN messages with links to revolting pornographical websites. I deleted them and their posts and am now wondering if the two are linked.

SO.... with all the excitement of Reality Scrap going on, Alicia and I are going to try to keep everything going with our blogs until the forum is back up.

Reality Scrap registrations closed yesterday. We have (I think) 45 people signed up who are all busily working on their Qualifying Challenge, due tomorrow (11.59pm Saturday 3 Feb 2007). These need to be uploaded to the Gallery in the Reality Scraps Qualifying Challenge area.

If anyone needs to talk to us about Reality Scraps, don't forget we set up an external email for you at We ask that anyone reading this please respect that this is for Scrapbook City customers use only.

The Reality Scrap Survival Kits have been mailed and are ready for collection from Scrapbook City. I LOVE these kits and have put hours into building them, so I hope you LOVE them too. There are some GREAT papers in them, plus some fun embellishments.

Let's hope the forum is restored very quickly!
xx S.

who would do such a thing ... what a waste of time! Glad to see it's back up, I was starting to worry with the challenge nearly closed, all I could think was "I'm glad I got my LO up in the gallery already"!!!

Glad you were able to fix up the message board so quickly - some horrible things left on there.

The survival kit is excellent - hope that everyone takes advantage!

Seriously some people have way too much time on their hands - what on earth is the point of hacking a scrapbooking site! Such a shame that has happened to SC. Glad you and Alicia have sorted it out.
