Site hacked 20 December
Well, it seems my site has been hacked. I'm in the process of restoring but it will take many days to get it the way it was.
Update: the poll is back up. I know it's not the most interesting part of the site, but it was the easiest to fix.

Forum back up! I did alot of searching around and managed to get the forum back up! It's now the 2.011 version so no more hacking should occur (the old forum version was the cause of this hacking). Everybody with a forum lower then this version is HIGHLY recommended to upgrade.
Although the forum still says it's version 6, it should be really version 11. Need to check that out. Also since it's a higher version, not everything may work the same.
I contacted my host and they will try to bring back the rest of the site. They should bring it back to the status it was about 2/3 days ago.

Thank you all for all the support you gave. I really apreciate it.

Site back up 21 December
As said yesterday, my host had a pretty good backup and now I completely returned the site as it was. Just the things I did on sunday need to be added like the new clothes.

Well, I'm glad everything is back to normal again. Sorry for not updating the news or answering mails but bringing the site back, was my top-priority.
