    Default I've been hacked

    Not sure were to put this so I'll put it here. I've been absent for a month or so(sorry) and when I came back I had a private message from Classy_cat18 saying I've been spamming. I checked my posts and I've made a ton of posts that I never made? I'm so sorry but I've been hacked. What should I do?

    Thank you Mikachu

    There was a hack attack a while back, but it's been taken care of.

    Is there actually a demerit point system in place for spamming and such? My message said I "lost 50 points" and I'm not sure if that's a real thing ya'll use

    Yup. Infraction points.

    Basically, you break the rules, you get an infraction, which carries a point value depending on how severe it is. If you get a certain number of points, you're banned, either temporarily or permanently. That's how it works on most forums out there.

    Wait... the infraction points are taken care of, yes; but you say you checked your posts and there were posts among them that weren't yours? If so, you really should change your e-mail address and your password. Could you please post (or send me) links to those posts?

    Oh thanks I was worried. But Lady Vulpix when I check new posts it tells me that I have made posts in threads I've never even been in.

    Thank you Mikachu

    Sorry, but I don't see any po9sts by you on the pages you've linked to.

    Can you post links to the actual posts? You know... right-click on the white number on the top-right corner on the post, click on "copy link location" and then paste it here.

    There are no posts where it says that I've made posts. It's very strange.

    You'll have to excuse me, but I don't understand a thing you're saying. Who says you have those missing posts which supposedly aren't yours? Where does it say so?

    On my profile under new posts. I'm also very confused. I think at this point it is just because I'm an idiot. I'm really sorry if that's the case

    Oh, I see now. >_< "New Posts" is not on your profile, it's a part of the forum menu, and it shows the latest posts made on the forum since you last visited. Not your posts.

    Case closed, mymyilikepie. You were never hacked.

    Since the problem that started this discussion, has proved to be nonexistant, I think it's a good time to close this thread.
