    Because trolling that's why. He did it for a reaction, and in terms of communities the Pokemon community is rather large, plus we have huge things like smogon, and hitting smogon is like hitting one of our main pillars, so many of us rely on it daily, just like Serebii, Marrilland, or Poke Beach. Though I would have liked to see him hack the Sega boards and TSS. Now the sonic fan base would erupt and it would be rather hilarious. So many jimmies would be rustled.

    Good to know you guys have things under control and its nice to see everyone taking the matter so maturely. I'll be on standby and see what happens but like they say, everything happens for a reason.

    Let's make sure we create...
    ...A world of our hopes and dreams.

    That first part reminds me of Da certain someone who won't be named that's now banned. I'm sure older members remember who I'm talking about, but yeah, that's something else entirely. EDIT: ninja'd But with Smogon as a target, maybe...

    It looks like it's been more than just Pokemon this person has targeted in the past, though it still makes you wonder, why now? From what I'm understanding, the person starts with an account on said forum, so major forums and potential targets should probably start banning any user by the hacker's name, if they have someone by that name. (looks like Serebii already has that covered)

    Why hack SPPf, of all places? :/
    There's nothing interesting enough here worth the trouble. This is a Pokémon forum...

    I don't think it'd be Dattebayo since other forums were hacked as well.

    It's more than likely while all hackers and virus makers do what they do: they're bored and have a sick sense of humor

    Please guys, do not take matters into your own hands. When people advise you 'don't feed the trolls' it's for a good reaosn. Going into that twitter feed and shouting and moaning isn't going to make them think "Gosh, I best not pick on Serebii anymore, the users there know the F-Word!" it's going to make them think "LOL, so riled up, what will they think when I do this next trick...". So please, please, please, do not take any action of your own, anything you do may put the forums at further risk.

    Someone hacked the forum, and they're speculating on who did it. I have a personal theory, but I'd rather not share.

    go to the forums actions and profile settings are there...there you can change your password and email address and i agree with razor best not to take matters in your own hands...it will make it even worse...as long as all your passwords are changed on other stuff like emails and etc which are not the same as serebii you should be fine...

    I though everyone already knew who did it. He hacked two other Pokémon forums too, so he wasn't targeting Serebii in specific, meaning he doesn't necessarily have an SPPf account.

    Wouldn't it be easier to add that to the same announcement suggesting us to change our password, rather than posting it on every page in this thread? That way anyone can see it, even if they don't go to this thread. Still, I don't know anything about this kinda stuff, so maybe it's better this way...

    Hackers that hack websites are very sad individuals. I'm happy to hear this site didn't take heavy damage from the hackers. I'm changing my password asap.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he goes after Bulbagarden next, but whatever I'm just glad we got this place back quickly.

    It seems he was attacking the whole Pokemon forum community in general so I don't he actually is a regular visitor in any of the forums.
