    The recent breach in security.

    Due to a recent breach in security (someone got through my 16 digit randomized alpha-numerical code and changed my PW >.>) I will be implementing some stricter firewalls to gaurd against any attacks in the future. Rest assured nothing of this sort will happen again. I thought that the site was structured to gaurd against these threats automatically and they do, but the coding isn't up to my standards, so I will personally write up some stricter background stuffs to stop anything from getting through like this. No other accounts/posts/features were harmed in the attack so it's prolly just some sophisticated bot or something cuz it was hopping proxies like mad and at fairly structured time intervals (I couldn't track it down cuz it just fled like a little bunny), but nevertheless, it will all be taken care of.
