Welcome to ilovebrickfilming.com! I know that there are a lot of questions regarding what happened (we have some too) so post in the comments what you want to know and we'll try our hardest to answer them as soon as possible. :)
I would like to know if it's a possibility that the site may have been hacked. It is possible, but I don't think it happened. If it did I had nothing to do with it.
Are you banned from the forums? No, but all of my privileges have been removed.
As of right now, Revmen you (Schlaeps), or anybody else on Brickfilms.com doesn't have any control over the site now, correct? The network is completely running it? I think Rev still has administrative powers, but that's all.
What happened? It's a long story, but the short of it is. I began work on this site about a week ago. I sent a link to a member via PM and they (apparently) discovered it that way. I did expect to get the boot after they discovered this, but I would have hoped that they would have contacted me beforehand. The fact that they've gone through my personal messages on brickfilms is also concerning.
May I ask what will become of this site, and the forums as well? This site will be under construction for a week or two. We'll continue to keep you updated via the blog (and upcoming RSS feed) on what the site will look like, ask your opinions on what you think is needed, what you want / don't want, etc.
is the cake REALLY a lie? I... don't know what you're talking about...
Why did you start making ilovebrickfilming in the first place? When I first saw Brickfilms beginning to go down the tubes I only saw bad things ahead. I thought that it would be wise, to have a place to go back to for the original ideal that Brickfilms was created under. To just have a place to share, grow, and learn about the hobby. Brickfilms is now a commercial venue. A way to make money. That's not what I signed up for when I started working on Brickfilms. That's not what I signed up for when I registered as a user in 2004. I joined because I like making lego guys walk and I wanted to get better at it and share my creations with other people. That's what this site is about.
Will Dave still be Minister of Milkshakes? Abso-freaking-lutely.
So, what exactly is this "link" you sent someone? A new redesign plan for the site or something? It was essentially this site minus the blog and had a Brickfilms.com logo on the top.
