Hi guys,

I wanted to make this post yesterday, but pretty much everyone in the Powell household has been falling ill (with me being the latest) over the past few days. I normally get by on around 5-6 hours of sleep most days, but yesterday I slept from around 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. this morning. Yeesh.

I decided to disable the Arcade system yesterday after discovering that it has been practically abandoned by the original coder at some point in 2014 and has since been discovered to be insecure. We've been hacked before and it has never been fun. I can't have exploitable software running on the server.

For anyone curious, we were using XF Arcade: https://xfrocks.com/threads/xf-arcade-0-2-0-testing.262/

Now, if anybody signed up for a Gold account because of Arcade access, please do let me know and I can get on top of sending a refunding back to your PayPal account. Send me a private message with your PayPal transaction ID and we can get the ball rolling.

On the plus side, we're going to look into adding some additional perks for Goldies to help sweeten the situation. Actually, if you have any suggestions, do please get 'em posted below. We can't offer a diamond Rolls Royce with every Gold subscription, but we want to make sure that those of you that are extra awesome and help whittle away at those evil server bills get an extra special thanks from us.

Sorry that this was a quick one. Any questions please feel free to ask and I'll make sure to address them when my stomach has stopped doing somersaults.
