W3Arena.net replaces Replayers.com
As some of you may have noticed, the login form of Replayers hasn't been available for 3 months and now the site itself has passed away.
Why so? The website was built 13 years ago without ever receiving any major work of maintainance, which made it very vulnerable to attackers. Recently, some of them managed to put their hands over the users' sensible data. Therefore, the login form has been purposely disabled in an attempt to fix this data leak, but unfortunately we realized repairing Replayers would have took forever.
In such a way as to ensure the safety of our users, we agreed and decided that replacing Replayers with W3Arena was a necessary action as well as the best option available. We are not going to risk any of your personal data anymore. Things such as passwords, emails or IP addresses won't fall in the hands of external people anymore.
I'm not too pleased to announce that Replayers is not going to be supported anymore.
Nonetheless, I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thanks to every administrator who has contributed to the management of the community portal over the past 13 years. Many of us will surely recall with pleasure all the positive experiences the website brought us. On the other hand, we should not be completely exasperated: RoC W3Arena has just been reopened and its own replay section is being developed.
The replay database and the newsposts that belong to Replayers will be moved to the new section, as well as all its active administrators, who will continue their work here.
You can find the new replay section under the Replays tab. What you are currently seeing is only a first release, useful just to provide you the main functions such as uploading and downloading replays, a commentary system, basic replay details and a few categories like TOP replays and ROTW. Last but not least, you are no longer obliged to register an account through the game server since you can easily create your new account on the webpage.
