It's been like this for a *while* . I could be wrong but I believe the Greeks hold the keys on to this riddle.

Come on the Greeks , you can do it!

Looks like the 1 mysql passwords needs to be reset.

Let's see if Spyros has any access and can fix it. If not, I (or maybe Spyros) can pass it on to Nikos.

I've spoken with him and it's a bit more involved but he has promised me that he will make "an honest effort". I've emailed him again tonight.

It's been down for > 6 months. This means that non of the tournaments in that period have been fed in and the overall rankings updated right ?

guys I am guessing that this will be the recent update to PHP Secure Passwords.

In effect PHP prevents a 'weak' password being used, and the strength level of 'strong' passwords has been increased dramatiacally.

no longer can you do something that is, for example M@rkIsTh3Boss

In the old days numbers and symbols were deemed secure, now we go even stronger and this means updating the passwords and all levels that use this, it took me a while to configure the KOA so it was secure again because of all the locations requiring password changes in the database!

pain in the arse, hopefully Spyros will get it sorted but if he needs me to help out I will try...
