New Website


20. April 2013 - written by Heif at 13:18

Howdy!

So, what the hell happened here?

As some - or most - of you might have noticed Google decided to list this website as being compromised and potentially dangerous. To get the important part out of the way: There is and was no actual security risk. So why did Google decide to list the site if there was no danger? Because there was a security issue with a former ad provider for EQDKP (the framework that is used for this site). And while no potentially dangerous content was actually displayed here, there was information leading back to that ad provider in the source code -- which of course is the only thing automated Google processes can really check. So basically: Because said provider was blacklisted, all sites containing links to that provider were blacklisted as well ... including this one.

While there was no actual risk, I decided to take this opportunity to upgrade to the latest version of EQDKP. Unfortunately that one is not backwards compatible as it is a completely new version. So essentially this is a site that's freshly set up -- hopefully with the most important data being imported properly. Things might not work as intended for a while, there might be bugs. If you find anything, let me know (something that did get lost in the process were the news Frown ). The visual styles for the main site and the forums currently don't match. I don't really consider that a priority, so it might take a while before that is "fixed".

Either way -- hopefully everything will be working properly soon, but the basics should be there already. Some things are even better: Logging in once now logs you into both the website and the forums for example! Wooho!

I submitted the site for a recheck by Google, so the pesky warning should hopefully be gone soon as well (although it probably will take a few days).
