Guys, Smogon was not the only one hacked, Serebii and Bulbapedia were too

To everyone else: every time you contribute to Bulbapedia, you're feeding Archaic's bank account

This is why I only bother spending my time and energy contributing to ad-free, non-commercialised wikis.

This attack will certainly have a significant effect on Smogon's traffic for at least a month or two ._.

Na, once they're back up, they'll have a burst of people back in and it'll resolve to normal. That's how it happened with me after 6 months downtime in 2002

Oh god 6 months? That seems much worse than what will happen to Smogon now. Oh well if they'll get a boom, that's good.

Yep that sounds plausible. I've rejected a 7 figure buyout offer, along with many others. I don't see a future where I'd sell my site. I'm not disillusioned with it yet :p I know that several other Pokémon sites have sold out, but I will not.

Did they base their 7 figure buyout offer on actual revenue / income figures obtained from you, or just based on what they know about your site's history and popularity / traffic?

I do not know. Probably a combination of factors based on popularity and monetisation possibilities. I don't want to be seen as selling out or anything such as that, which is why I keep the adverts on the site to a minimal level

No need to thank me. I thank you all of you for sticking with it :) It's always nice to see positivity rather than the bile I get in some corners of the net.
