The site's founder, Tom Allensworth, explained why 13 years of community developed terrains, skins, and mods will not be restored from backups, "Some have asked whether or not we had back ups. Yes, we dutifully backed up our servers every day. Unfortunately, we backed up the servers between our two servers. The hacker took out both servers, destroying our ability to use one or the other back up to remedy the situation.""
