As have I, so there's plenty of personal info for us to be worried. I wish this would be addressed.

Okay.... my assumption is that because vBulletin may be rather outdated... many people are having issues with the software simply because of incompatabilty with their current operating system and/or programs they have and use. This had nothing whatsoever to do with "hackers" or whatever so lets please not spread a panic.

Let's take it in perspective... all over this forum people are asking for help and or advice because they are having problems loading certain aspects of WKW ....WShp...the arcade... or the arenas or whatever and the same advice is given to everyone. As we all know... not every "fix" works for everyone and so you just try everything and hopefully one of the fixes work.

Some people can only use IE.. some can't use IE at all
Some can only use Chrome... some Chrome doesn't work for
Some have to use Firefox
Some have to use AdBlock.. some not
Some have to constantly clear out cache.

The problems staff are having with vBulletin are more than likely similar to the above issues... everyone runs slightly different systems and not everything works 100% all the time with their system and adjustments must be made in order to make things work.

Are you trying to access the Wiki itself? Or a special project within the Wiki?

Nothing shows up if you click on the Wiki Icon above the Main Banner?

Just because there are clearly incompatibiity issues doesn't mean there may not also be vulnerabilities - especially if incompatibility is preventing a really timely and sturdy interface. This is a legit question about user info vulnerability. It's not hysteria.

This thread was created by MissGnomie to explain why there is a delay on posting on the front page. The delay in posting on the front page has to do with software incompatibility.

Staff members having issues using the Front Page Editor does not mean the website is vulnerable to an attack.

Legitimate concerns or questions about the security of your personal information just simply does not relate to this topic so should be posted elsewhere so it can be addressed as the separate issue it is.

I just recently came back to WKW after a few years of inactivity due to real life priorities but prior to that I was a Staff member here at WI and I can assure you that Justin and Wendy took security extremely seriously and would have taken all precautions to ensure the safety of your personal information.

No need for anger, and no one is panicking. People are just asking questions, and want to be reassured. MissGnomie's message suggests that the staff is having problems with the vBulletin program, and none of us have seen Justin for a long time, so it's natural to assume that he's not updating things. It's not unheard of for people to wonder if things are secure here. It's just a question, not an accusation. People are just hoping for an answer to assure us.

I don't think anyone is angry?? I am simply suggesting that concerns about website security should be addressed elsewhere.. and not be confused (or confuse other members) with Staff having problems with the Front Page Editor software and slow front page updates.

If people have concerns about the security of their personal info... and it is a legitimate concern for anyone who has sensitive info stored outside of their control then perhaps a Private Message to an Admin would be a good idea.

There is nothing about slow updates that in any way suggests or even relates to my (and I have also Donated and Subscribed) personal information being in any way vulnerable because of the Front Page Editor issues.
