I used to love the old BD forums and have a lot of good memories from it, but I can't sadly find it anymore. I am not sure if they have deleted it or I have just forgot where to find it, but it would be nice if someone could inform me or even give me a link to it.

They can't really have deleted it, can they? :cry:

These forums still exist, but are closed off. Perhaps one day we will open the archive again. They were closed recently due to several attacks on old.battledawn.com

We dont have the resources to sit on top of a whole other website to see who is attacking what etc etc, so we simply closed all access to old.battledawn and routed it all here.

Sorry. Another fine example of some guy out there messing up a good thing for everyone else. :|

Seth, can't you just make the files required for logging in, posting and administrating have a permission of I belief 444 (that was it wasn't it?) so people can't possibly do anything else with it but look?

Thats how it was. The attack on old.battledawn was not a spam attack, but an attack of script kiddies finding lapses in the primitive security of the old site and taking advantage of it not being constantly policed. The forum was already locked down and archived.

Perhaps someday ill move it over here to this site and have it as an open archive, but its not a priority right now. Sorry :(
