Growing pains.

In the span of just a few years, the Silent Wrytes forum had grown beyond my wildest expectations. The website was averaging 23,000+ visitors a month.  We even secured our first paid advertisement with Montana Paint.  However, our success was quickly tempered, we got hacked. It was a tough blow to absorb, but the loophole was through the forum which was bootlegged and vulnerable.  This was a costly mistake and resulted in us losing the entire forum. A major set back, particularly since it happened at the height of our success. We remained committed to rebuilding and regaining our footing.
