Much thanks for all your efforts on our behalf! I know you work very diligently to maintain this site for all of us who are afflicted with this fountain pen illness. I don't say it often but I think it all the time: thank you!

This site has become part of my morning ritual - I scan the Times on my ipad, then some local news, then go to FPN and wander around a bit. Nice to see that security issues are discovered and dealt with. I have, through some sad experiences, learned to NEVER put in a code, password, etc. when suddenly prompted by a screen - I only put them in when it is in a stream of connection that I began, I initiated. Some times this means I have to drop something I am in the middle of, and go back and start over again, but that is easier than cleaning up after a mess. my congratulations, and thanks, to the FPN people for keeping this site safe. asiras

Well-done. Thank you.

 

Is there a program we can join ? Perhaps contribute $1.00 per month to finance

hunting these scoundrels and hurting them ?

Did you see the "DONATE"button on our homepage?

 

I tried it and it works...

So you flushed the nib? Or did you have to tinker with the feed?

Both :D.

Yes, I do, regularly. However, I really mean " HUNT THEM DOWN & HURT THEM".

Great news! I'd not spotted anything amiss but it's good to know that we are being looked after.

Just wondering as I only found out about this today, have affected members been contacted?

I appreciate the hard work and safe environment you provide! Thanks!

On the odd chance that the current skin is not one's favorite...where can one go to find other options as I do not seem to be able to find a "choice" and when I click on the link at the bottom of the page that says who created this skin...it states they no longer exst and redirects me to another site (Xenique).

I know it is likely here somewhere and I am just not finding it!

Thanks

Dave

Thank you very much for your excellent work.

 

Echoing Tokugawa's query, given the likely small number of FPNers likely affected, have they/we been contacted?

Given that I didn't even know about the security issues until I saw the "we've fixed it" thread, you guys are even *more* amazing and über-

dedicated. :notworthy1:

Although -- not being overly tech savvy -- I have to ask: what is that people mean when they talk about "skin"? I'm not familiar with the term at all.

Hi Ruth,

 

More information on skins can be found in the blog post linked to in the Recommend Reading box at the top right of the screen, second to last link, "New skins" :). It refers to the little box at the bottom left of the screen, where you can select a whole bunch of skins, 7 "new" ones, 6 of which are only available to registered members who are logged in. The Vault skin is the only one available to guests as well, hence the reset to the Vault skin. And skins are actually your interface to FPN and the database of posts and all the rest, very much like one can skin, f.e., many (software) mp3-players, IOW, change the look and feel of the interface.

Personally, I use Library most of the time :).

 

HTH, warm regards, Wim

Thanks Wim. I've just spent a bit of time playing around with the different skins to see which ones I like. Although, to be honest, I may eventually go back to the default one -- a lot of the "fancy" ones seem overly busy, and/or are giving me some eyestrain when looking at the color for too long (they're not "restful" somehow, even the ones that sounded as if they would be....)

I also decided to play around with different fonts. (I like playing around with different fonts.... :thumbup: )

Though not addressed directly to me...THANKS! This is exactly what I was looking for.

Now deciding between two that I like...this is great!

As someone who is totally uninitiated in forming skins,........... indeed even knowing what skins "are" in regard to computers & the like, I need someone to explain what all this means.

Does it affect me?

It may not pertain at all to my limited use of the Fora in the FPN.

I'm very curious though.

A "phising scam" needs an explanation to an old fly fisherman.
