We have to respect companies and their rights, more so with our goals to become a registered preservation group.

Ok, so as some of you may know a few minutes ago the OG discord server disappeared
Shortly after we found out that the server had been reported for "selling or distributing cheats, hacks or cracked accounts" , This is of course totally false
Bear with us whilst we figure something out
EDIT Note by Damien:
I won't be joining the new server at this time. If you see anybody named Damien/WD in server please report to the Discord staff team asap.

We had to disable registration as I was too busy to fully fix the issue until now.

The most annoying part to this was them sending porn spam via PM, meaning we couldn't...
It was brought to our attention by @SmilingMango that EXIF info wasn't being stripped as we assumed it was by Xenforo.
For people that leave GPS enabled, this could be a major issue i.e it exposes your location/address.
For this reason we've stripped EXIF from all 15657 images containing info. We've added a tool that can auto strip EXIF from new JPG/JPEG uploads but it doesn't work on PNG from what we can see, this means future JPG/JPEG will be stripped if you have EXIF info enabled, but...
