A group calling themselves D2FC is "hijacking" other MLP groups by becoming their Co-Founder and exploiting their position and causing a big ugly mess.

Follow this link for more clarifying details:

As precaution, I will not be allowing any one to be a member, contributor, and a co-founder until the threat has passed. I will also not be allowing artwork or journals besides this one of any kind to be submitted.

edit: I'm allowing members to join, but the artwork is subject to vote. Won't allow anyone to be a co-founder or a contributor.

Blocking all members and art? Overboard much?

I think you should only block join request to Co-Founders; Contributors i can understand since it's an "admin" rank too. But i don't think it's necessary to block join requests to members or new art submission requests.

As i read elsewhere, it is not hacking but SOME groups having the wrong option of someone applying to be co-founder and it being on auto accept, at least thats how i got it.

If they were proper hackers instead of just misusing the mistake of group admins/founders they wouldnt have been caught so soon after it i think.
