So the site got hacked somtime in the middle of the night.  He deleted all the files.  The good news is that I had a backup.  The bad news is it was from Friday, May 21st.  It looks like nothing in the database was lost so all the text of the comments and changes to pages were saved but any files uploaded since the 21st were lost.  Just a heads up.

An update:
He rejoined the discord with two usernames (which I've again banned) and send me a threatening set of messages saying he would hack the server, delete the files, format the server, and post all the usernames/passwords online.  I've also received word from at least one person that they received an extortion e-mail with their password from this site.  Just be alert.

I may shut the site down for a bit to get him to go away.  If he hacks it again, I'll just put up a warning page for a while.
