    For those unaware of recent affairs, TheScienceForum appears to have been hijacked by "Ads" and at least two separate threads from the Site Feedback subforum have been removed by someone messing around in the AdminCP there.

    Should some of you encounter similar problems here in the sister site, I would suggest clearing your desktop and mobile phone browser's Cookies & Cache to successfully connect back to the forums.

    @ Markus, if you are able to contact Kalster or Admin from the parent site, you may want to advise that they consult with vBulletin.org Forum for added security update with the current forum software version. The cleanup if implemented will be messy from what I've read there.

    I am currently attempting to make contact with Admin to find out what is actually going on. I will let you know once I receive further information.
