Last thing I can suggest is to upload it directly to here.
I was clicking the back button and somehow ended up in themehouse.com - I know they’re the people behind XenForo etc., but not sure why I ended up there?
@Ian the Admin , @CalBear :
In the thread in my signature, once again I was warned of an "SQL Injection exploit" by my BitDefender antivirus. Could this site be under attack/infected? Or is it my antivirus overreacting? Last time, I said that this site was safe and nothing noticeable happened.
Or would this mean that I am attacking alternatehistory.com? I don't at all know what the text below means!
The BitDefender website says:
Does anyone know if there's a currently active thread for reviews of electronic entertainment products in either of the chat forums? For reviews of things like Epic Battle Fantasy 5, Gemcraft: Chasing Shadows, the Papa Louie platform games, etc.
That is a really weird warning. SQL injection is used to attack web sites, not personal computers.
What sort of attack of a website would a SQL injection be or facilitate?
From wikipedia: SQL injection attacks allow attackers to spoof identity, tamper with existing data, cause repudiation issues such as voiding transactions or changing balances, allow the complete disclosure of all data on the system, destroy the data or make it otherwise unavailable, and become administrators of the database server.
Okay. But I don't operate a website, not even some blog on wordpress.com or something like that. And I don't think alternatehistory.com wants any data from my computer or something either.
Or could I have something on my computer which performs an SQL injection (attempt)?
@Dom , are you an IT geek maybe?
Would an administrator be able to edit part of a thread title-i put the wrong year in it.
You can edit that yourself (click on thread tool on the top right of the page)
Can we please have the title bar colour changed to something less hideous?
Ideally black, but if not then the same blue as the theme would be nice.
We have a title bar colour? My phone just has default white, which works pretty well given the site's chill blue-white aesthetic.
My phone has white as well, it might depend on what web browser or what version of the web browser he's using.
Chrome 70, Android
The almost purplish blue has now gone and is back to the default white
What does "Trolling straight out of the gate" means?
Trolling as soon as you join/with your first few posts.
And ending usually immediate ban.
I'd just like to thank Ian for creating a brand new version of the clickable overview of "who posted in this thread" for the current board software. When we switched to the new software, it was one of the features I missed. I'm really happy to see it's made a modern comeback now ! I love how it's implemented.
Now the board feels really awesome and modern. I've been on AH.com for over a decade now, and I think the board has never looked better than now.
