"some music was meant to stay underground..."

Site Update

Member Sign Up Fixed

For everyone who tried to sign up or register an account with Metalunderground.com in the past week, you probably got errors or a message that the username was already taken. The error was a side effect of changes made in code cleanup after the hacking attacks. Rest assured that your registration(s) DID go through despite the error message.

The issue has now been fixed. I offer my sincerest apologies for the inconvenience.

(Thanks to Rose for alerting me to this issue)

I agree, I think that DB should add a private forum for members so we can talk about other stuff that isn't relevant to the topic.

^what are you talking about? That IS Kalis's avatar. She chose your blank picture thing and uploaded it on Gravatar. :p

I hope this is the last of those bugs, though I suspect not, I'm guessing that we might be getting other repercussions of the hack in the future that we might not realize for a while.

I just don't understand why someone would hack into METAL UNDERGROUND? At least it is becoming popular, though, which is a good thing. It is raining right now...Thank God! South Texas needs the rain badly.
