As most of you know already, someone was able to get access to the hosting account of our server. This allowed the person to delete everything on the server, including the backups that were connected to this hosting account. Unfortunately this means we have no way of restoring the website and connected services to their original state.
This is obviously a terrible loss for the Tukui community as a whole, and for each individual user who relied on Tukui.
At this point we saw only three options. We could rebuild everything from scratch, while salvaging as much as we could from Web Archives. Another option was to switch to Curse hosting and abandon our forum. The final option was to abandon Tukui and ElvUI altogether.
I hope everyone will be happy to know that we went with option #1. Tukz will be working to build a new and better home for us. While it is terribly annoying that this incident happened, we believe that the final outcome will make for a better experience for the entire Tukui community, as soon as we get everything up and running.
This will obviously not happen overnight, as we all have lives that go on outside our daily routines in the Tukui community. We will do our best to get everything up and running as fast as possible, and ask for your patience and understanding while we work through any issues that may arise.
If you are a supporter of the Tukui community with a premium subscription active, don't worry! Your subscriptions are not loss or affected, because they are managed from Paypal, and nothing here is lost. We will do something special for you when we will be fully back online!
