Hey, if any of you guys get a PM from a guy named nightmare918 telling you that he's opening a new website and wants you to "try it out" for free by backing up all your pc's info onto the site, don't do it, I think it's a scam. Here's the PM I got:

I've sent the PM to David to see what he thinks of it.

Edit: Oh yeah, he's a member that just signed up yesterday and has no posts so I should trust him right? [/sarcasm]

That is so funny!!!!!

It sounds like he wants to dupicate some of your files. Don't go for it, I won't trust a person until I meet them.

Sounds like a scam. Whats the point in an online backup..so much security flaws anyways. You realize howmuch that website would be hacked daily if it wasnt a scam.

Too bad, he's banned.

UK31337: So am I. I need to get on with my job, unban me now. I can still edit posts and access the mod panel whilst banned, in case you were wondering.

someone else had been using his account. David didn't want trouble so he temporarily banned him until things are worked out.

UK, I can't do a shnizle to lift the ban. Just talk to david. I'll give you a hand.

All I'm going to ask you is if you can still view the Staff lounge.
