I'll admit, it can be a bit annoying sometimes, but not to the point where I'd want to start punching things.
More like an itch that I'll just scratch, and then move on with my day.
The only ones I find particularly annoying are the ctrl+v sparkly ones with bbcode and colours included.
I'm not saying they should leave updates on every site they use, just maybe the ones that people frequent most often. For example these forums, Twitter or Facebook.
Or maybe even just simply leaving a little note on where to go for updates in the little "Administrators Notice" note.
Though thinking about it, I guess I can see it from the admins point of view.
A lot of people didn't start using the forums until the most recent site outage, and even now a lot of people still aren't using them.
So I guess it kinda makes sense that they'd write a lot of their updates on...
They could have just simply mentioned it in the thread regarding the read-only mode and it would have been 10x more helpful.
I had no idea they were only posting updates on Twitter for this one until I noticed people sharing them in the comments on other threads.
Seems a bit daft to not inform...
Some of these ideas just seem a bit far-fetched to me.
While yes, I agree that better security measures should be implemented, I also think that users should take some responsibility to ensure safety of their stuff.
And this isn't exactly a huge website that needs such drastic security, I mean...
Any reason I keep losing my ability to reply to topics?
I could understand I was off-topic earlier and assumed that was the reason for my first time out, but now it's happened again and my last comment was completely on topic!
I can't find an option to PM, so I've had to leave this here.
I'd assume there was some kind of hole in the exploited server that allowed the hacker to access further data.
I mean, that data is linked to the users themselves, so I could see it being possible.
But hey, I don't actually know anything about this stuff, so I could be very wrong.
Glad to see things will be back in working order again soon~
People got way too scared about this!
Also, sorry for off-topic posting.
I was scratching my head for hours wondering why I couldn't comment on anything.
I'll refrain from talking about unrelated things.
