    Sorry folks. We had to disable the vbPlaza and the Phins Dollars feature because a exploitable bug was found in that system that could have allowed a hacker to disrupt Finheaven.

    At this time, there is no fix and the developer has no plans to correct the problem.

    We apologize for any inconvenience but the security of the board comes first.

    Update: We are installing a replacement system for vbPlaza :) We should have it up and running soon.

    agreed, it was fun while it lasted but the most important thing is the security of Finheaven and it's members.

    That's a shame but although a hard one it's the right call to make.
    The guys supporting this site do a great job.

    question

    I was in User CP and I noticed there wan't any vbPlaza option. I went through the forums and I noticed a lot of people had 500 finbucks. 1 person had 25500 bucks. Strange. Is there a reason?

    It's all explained here.
    Apparently there is some problem with VBPLAZA and it was removed from FH to protect it from a potential threat

    No, I am sorry bro. There is no way I am going to go through 14,000 individual accounts and give everyone back their play money :lol:

    We will effectively be starting over.

    When we get everything set up, we will post the new points and $$ settings. Right now, Mindwarp and I are working on the stuff that makes the site work. We will get to the fluff when that is done :)

    Thanx Celt....

    BTW...once the bugs and all gets worked out, will the new $ system update our $ with the current post and thread stuff?

    For example....Say I have a thread and it has over 200 viewings and such...will I get the $ for all those viewings and post or does it all start a new once the new system is in place with no retroacvtiveness?

    You guys always do a hell of a job and I am happy to be here on FH... Keep up the great work fellas. FH is definitely in the right hands!!!

    No, you will not get $$ from views. You only get $ for posting and for starting threads and it will not be retroactive.

    I sometimes use premium gas in my automobile.

    Does that count?

    I'll miss my $14k, but at the same time, I won't miss the stupid threads that I swear were started only to run up Fin Dollars... Well, maybe idiot threads will go away. :unsure:
