Message from [[User:Lance|Lance]]:
 
 
Due to recent events I have temporarily disabled the creation of new accounts on the Ranger Wiki.
 
 
Apparently a small group of vandals have attacked the Acorn Cafe, and had also planned to attack the Wiki.
 
 
However, we seem to have avoided any mishaps; entirely thanks to Winston, Midnight Man, Silver Shadow and Alain, who all let me know that something was up. Thanks guys!
 
 
I will be investigating options for tightening security for the Wiki, but in the meantime existing members should be unaffected.
