Downtime Information / Recent Server Issues

Downtime Information / Recent Server Issues on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

After a while trying to fend of hackers and getting the site back online we're finally ready to bring you Nintendo love once more.

Earlier in November we were unfortunately a victim of a hacking attempt where a group managed to replace our homepage with vile and disgusting content and figure out admin passwords. Since then we've taken the site to a newer machine in an attempt to improve security.

Please be aware that important user information like passwords were and are saved in our system as encrypted/protected data. However in interests of completely protecting the site we have had to reset user passwords. To login again please create a new password for your account by clicking here.

We should be secure and ready to rumble - however please keep an eye out for any suspicious activity in the coming weeks.

In interests of peace, please don't insult the hackers/countries etc - we have had some nasty threats regarding this and would like to move on from this.

A huge apology for the inconvenience, and many thanks for sticking with Cubed3 for your Nintendo news and information.

Kind Regards,
Cubed3 Team

Hey, is this thing on? Welcome back C3, I honestly hope things are more smooth from here on out Smilie

Things are still a bit glitchy around the site so it's a bit too early to be saying "I missed you", maybe I'll say that tomorrow Smilie

Awesome job everyone for getting the site back up Smilie

Could I suggest keeping this news post bumped to the top for a while? There is a huge backlog of news to go up and by the time it's all done this thread will be buried! Smilie

Little by little, this thing is coming together! Good job everyone for getting this place back up. I know from talking to a few guys that this place was sorely missed.


The former top user was Keven! You'd probably give birth to yourself 1000 times over until you sprout wings to fly away into the fading sun, that or you'd just turn into a lesbian. Who knows @_@ - L, 12/06/09

The front page has never looked better to me! I\'m glad everything is back online.

good to see the site back... just one little glitch annoys me... when logging in it says "username does not exist" but it still logs me in o-o

Thanks guys!

Also JB, I can't give anyone stars, it says "no topic selected, for some reason" Also, not sure if you noticed, but all your stars have dissapeared....

Great work to the C3 team, on getting the site up and running again. Smilie

I missed it lots, so I was really happy to find it was back up this morning. I also got the same message come up as Edracon, when I logged in (after I changed the password C3 sent me).

I've missed you. Smilie

I will hunt down and kill every last one of those hacker people. Smilie

Is anyone else having problems loading the recent posts bar on the right side of the forum? It doesn't seem to load at all for me atm but it was working fine last night Smilie.

Twitter | C3 Writer/Moderator | Backloggery

It's not loading for me too.

Hokay - fixed the recent posts bar and star issue - thanks guys Smilie

Unfortunately the hackers really tampered with my account so I have no idea how many stars I have/had Smilie

Still need to find out why it's doing the "user not found" thing - very odd!

Also your C3 Founder/Admin bar is gone!
As for your Stars I'm 100% certain you had atleast 1100.

Twitter | C3 Writer/Moderator | Backloggery

I'm not 100% certain, but I'm sure that Jb had 1124 stars.

Good to see C3 back online Smilie

Great to see the site back up. Smilie

Happy Birthday!

It requires great courage to look at oneself honestly, and forge one's own path.


When I try and change my signature, using the < img src = / > tags it doesn\'t work (so I can get rid of the border). I tried using the regular [ /img] tags and it works with those.

Me account is apparently lost into the abyss (Modplan Man), says it can't find it.

That's odd, it definitely still seems to be there

with all your posts intact.
I'd email/pm jb about it.
