Hey, guys. If you ever lurk or post on the Snarkfest board, you may have noticed that it's down. Long story short, someone who either had or gained admin access started deleting everything. "Gained access" could mean outsider hacking, but we don't know. All we know is what we've deduced from looking at the mod panel (from which we were eventually shut out) and the board itself--which is why there are a lot of questions we can't answer, because all we have is conjecture. We're trying to find a solution, which may or may not involve setting up a new board. But there will be a board of some kind; Snarkfest as a human community isn't going anywhere.
I'm posting this here, though, because everyone's kind of far-flung and I'm not sure everyone's hearing the news. We're posting updates at snarkfest_lj; the most recent official update on the board (and Genevieve's baby!) was here. Please join the comm if you have an LJ ID or bookmark it if you don't. If you know of anyone else from the board, make sure they know about the comm and the situation in general.
ETA: We started setting up a new board last night. It'll be ready soon. That's all I can say for now. There's some drama going on, but we were already prepared for that.
