Well luckily due to WKN and members posting news here constantly, we're still getting the latest news despite this technical issue. But, Miss Gnomie, why wasn't this announcement made months ago if this was happening for the past year? And many sites have technical issues, but they are solved within a matter of days. So I also don't understand why this technical issue hasn't been fixed yet. Is it because Webkinz Insider lacks the resources? I don't know how fixing technical issues work. I'm no expert. It's not that I don't appreciate the efforts that have been made by the staff. It's just that the inner journalist in me is inching for some answers for some fair questions.
The reason it hasn't been addressed before on the front page is because it was not a barrier for the majority of our staff, or created a huge delay in front page stories (i.e enough people could access it and post within an acceptable amount of time). As of this moment (and to the best of my knowledge based on discussion w/ other staff members), I have been the only one able to post on the front page without any issues (*knocks on wood*).

We have made some attempts to work around it (switching browsers, updating our browsers, etc.) and there have been attempts to patch the issues by Justin, but we have yet to find what the root cause is. My suspicion is that the software used to edit the front page (and related, the forum software) is outdated and incompatible with many browsers/systems. Without a major change (i.e. moving to new software or upgrading to the latest version of v-buliten, both of which require $$, adaptation to major changes, and possible re-regrestration by members on a new forum outlet) the issue may not be easy to resolve or address.

In the mean time, we'll keep trying to work around it. But I know that I will not be around much as of March, and wanted to ensure the stagnation of front page stories was addressed on the front page by someone who can post....which meant it had to be myself....lol.

Thank you for the reply. It is too bad there is not money to upgrade to the latest software, especially because there are vulnerablities in v-bulletin that should be resolved in the latest verrsion.

Thank you Miss Gnomie! And I certainly would not want to re-register. But unfortunately, it may be time for Webkinz Insider to go through a drastic change such as a software change.

Could our personal information from when we registered here be accessed through this v-Bulletin vulnerability? And if so, should we try to delete our own info?

Since vBulletin is outdated, and it seems that either Justin and/or the staff is not willing to update it.. what does that really mean for the future of this site?

I guess I understand that if things were to be changed drastically, it wouldn't go over very well here. But then again, I don't want to see WI become compromised. Tough decision.

AHHH, so much is explained. I was afraid there was a different problem. I can understand having software issues as well as having life get in the way.

I do know that vBulletin sites have been hacked by a person named Fortune. He has done some very horrible things to Webkinz Forums through vBulletin. He has also replicates WW items and scams many of the users on Webkinz World as well as users of Webkinz forums using vBulletin. Could someone like Fortune be the cause of these issues, as well?
