Update: this post was written last year in August 2008 and I wanted to inform you that the information here is old and relevant to events at that time. The comments here range from old to new; and since we love them, we want to keep them active and available. But because the status information is old, we want you to know that we maintain a forum (The Cullens Garage) of our server status and Q&A at the TwilightMomsForums.com site. You must be a registered member to leave forum comments; so join the members and let us know about any problems or concerns about the websites, or just enjoy the friendships and fun topics there … -SnapJag
Yesterday at least one of the Twilight communities mounted an attack on some of the Twilight fansites. They held a “contest” of sorts to see who could post as many of their banners on a site and take a screen shot of their banner before it got deleted. They posted a few posts on our site before we decided to disable the forum for the night. The TwilightMOMS forums were not hacked and are still in tact but due to lack of staffing available this weekend to deal with the issue we have decided to keep the forum disabled for the weekend.
Our heart goes out to the Lexicon and we are truly saddened that their site was hacked last night. The Lexicon held a wealth of information for the Twilight Fandom which is currently unavailable to all.
ETA: It appears it was one really upset person who hacked into the Lexicon. I’m truly sorry for the time and energy that it will take the Lex to restore the damage that was done. The Lexicon provided so much valuable information for the Twilight community. I personally agree that, no matter whether you loved or hated Breaking Dawn, or agreed or diagreed with the Lexicon stance on what is allowed on their personal site, hacking in and destroying someone’s website is unjustifiable and completely wrong.
ETA: My original post said it was a teenager who hacked into the Lex but in reality I don’t have a clue how old the person was. Stephenie Meyer has many loyal fans of all ages!!! Teenagers and adults alike adore her and the world she has created.
