Default Important message to all members from Beth, Jean and Gilly

Hallo to all members and potential new members from the Mods, Jean, Beth and myself.

This is an important post so I am putting it up as a Sticky so it can be read by everyone for a few weeks and not get lost.

A few days ago our precious Grannynet forum and web site was hacked. Since then, Verity has been working non stop to get rid of the hacker and to restore normal function.

We would like to give you all the go ahead to return to our dearly loved GN, however, please bear in mind that for a short time, (maybe a couple of weeks or so) caution is advised on giving too many personal details in your posts, and we believe it may be wise not to post photos just yet.

If this sounds alarmist it is certainly not meant to be. We are confident the forums are now clear and ready to be used again. However, it is always the best policy to stay aware, and to allow everything to return to normal once more. Verity will be checking on the Site on a regular basis and so will us mods. If there is any sign of trouble, we will alert you all immediately.

Have a great time posting again Ladies. Look forward to our usual conversations this coming weekend.

Gilly, Jean and Beth xxx

Elsie, so did I . A bit of a shock when I had a decidedly dodgy message when trying to log on. Thanks for sorting it out, ladies 💐
