Here you'll find any news about R4P3.NET like any new releases of crazY shiT
New T-Shirts released in our online store. Check out these two HACKER CREED T-Shirts and get them now. They will be discontinued after a certain amount are sold.
If you have any questions please send me a private message.
The forum adress changed from forum.r4p3.net to only r4p3.net
This change was necessary for a security update. We also think it is easier and cleaner with only r4p3.net
Links to the old adress are redirected to the new one, so there should not be any errors.
We cleaned up the forum a little bit. So here are the changes:
Business category moved into Off-Topic
Game Hacking merged with Hacking
deleted subforums RAT and Crypting in the Hacking category
merged subforums Tutorials from the category Hacking and Development
to be continued
We also decided to hide spoilers for guests to make registration a little bit more atractive
[spoiler]Guests cannot see what I just wrote in here[/spoiler]

So it looks like this:
R4P3 Logo / R4P3 Youtube intro
We are looking for a well made R4P3 logo and a short youtube introduction (about 20 sec). If you have further questions regarding the content of the intro video, don't hesitate to contact either @Asphyxia or @Supervisor for details.
We will collect all of your ideas and pick the best one
Please create a new thread here if you're going to to do it, and keep us up to date on the progress you make (so we don't miss anyone )
The reward for this will be a free VIP access.
We changed permissions. Registered users now can see the VIP area and the stuff inside, but they cannot access it.
I reorganized the VIP section to make it easier to find stuff. It should be more clear where to post stuff, too.
@Asphyxia fixed the bug that the forum CSS would not load sometimes. Thanks!
Next on the list:
Email server with TLS to securely route mail between the forum and clients with indirect origin.
DocuWiki with the matching theme for our forum --- https://www.dokuwiki.org/template:bootstrap3#lightbox/0/ paired with https://bootswatch.com/yeti/ .. at least I think that's what would make the Wiki look like our forum.
Regular server maintenance has been performed. All servers have been checked and look good, cheers.
A full backup has been made successfully.
Our mail server is live and the Wiki will be launching soon.
Feel free to jump on our Wiki and begin posting tutorials, bugs and so on.
Here is an example of how we will be using this to document bugs:
Obviously once I have a little more time to gather all of the bug/vulnerability information, then I will have full write-ups/articles on the various bugs we have found and some we are working on. I strongly believe that a Wiki and forum can both be utilized, because the two systems serve entirely different purposes. Forums are more for discussing things hence "discussion board", whereas a Wiki is more of an encyclopedia almost which is more for spreading knowledge, like Wikipedia. The environment in the R4P3 Knowledge Center will be more educational. I really hope that people from our forum community will help out with making various tutorials, documenting bugs and please do not be afraid to edit any of the current pages or add new ones.
A new smiley pack has been installed. We currently have the XenForo default which has .. and now I have added .. zombies!
I am willing to take smiley pack requests, just private message me if you would like to see a certain smiley pack added. The options are here https://xenforo.com/community/resources/categories/smilies.11/ although I can make anything work within reason. I was recently ill with food poisoning, so this was something easy and quick to add whilst still feeling dizzy.
Feel free to express yourself dead or alive now.
We now have a public Google+ community for R4P3.NET --- feel free to join here: https://plus.google.com/communities/117952669792047860550
Over the next few days I am going to work on establishing social media accounts to help us grow as a larger and stronger community.
We added a small section about Discord. Discord is an alternative VoIP service which can be used in the webbrowser, or with its own downloadable client.
We now have a Facebook page. Like and share our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/R4P3.NET ) for a free chance at winning a 6 month VIP membership upgrade. You must also message the R4P3.NET Facebook page your forum username.
Have Twitter? Just follow us for a chance to win ( https://twitter.com/R4P3_NET ).
Today we have two news for you guys:
First, we are happy to pronounce two new moderators which will help us to keep the forum going
Our new Global Moderator will be @Qraktzyl and our new Moderator for the category TeamSpeak will be @Hawkbk (0x0539). They will have a trial time of 2-4 weeks.
Second announcement is the new Crash for the TeamSpeak Server 3.0.12 which we released in the night. We expect a fix from @TeamSpeak within one week.
We have had some server maintenance recently. Everything is stabilized now though, my sincere apologies to any members whom were unable to access our website for the short duration of our downtime. Thanks for understanding and as always, happy R4P3 season!
Attention all forum crawlers: The R4P3 server monkeys have been configuring server settings. Below, you can see them excitedly fixing something. Over the next few days, expect some downtime although we will stay resilient.
We should all thank these bright minded server monkeys for keeping the servers running. Don't multiply the guest count by two.
I did have to disable PayPal Account Upgrades for now. I hope they will be back online in the evening.
/edit: VIP payments are up again.
/edit2: Paypal is down again, not sure if we will get it back.
