Ugh. I swear the message has changed since I was there a couple days ago. I just looked for the part about hosting malicious malware. I can't believe how long it's taking them to clear this up. It took ONTD like a day.

I tried to go there today (on Chrome for Windows) and just got bounced straight to Google. Then I tried with Explorer, and quickly read the message at the top of every forum about the malware, and then felt stupid for having gone there. Since of course Explorer is the only browser that didn't have the self-preservation skills to block people from it.

I can't decide if this makes Explorer a brave, fearless renegade, or the one kid in class who seems incapable of learning.

I can get on it using Firefox, but the formatting is all screwed up.

So if I clicked through the warning is my computer going to explode from malware? Sigh.

It looks like they've fixed the malware problem? That or Firefox got tired of warning me and decided to let my work computer have all the viruses, if I was that intent on visiting.

I just looked at their Facebook page, and the latest update said they've fixed the malware problem. There seems to be some issue with their publishing software, so no new recaps, but they say the forums are working.

Three weeks later and they're still having server issues. I'm wondering if the TWOP forum is heading on its way out in the same way the Rotten Tomatoes forum is. Both used to be very active but it seems like these days TWOP especially being Universal-owned is just filled with NBC employees that run the site and hype up the network's shows with thinly veiled spoilers.

I was wondering how they'd deal with the much buzzed about House Of Cards (which I'm currently watching), considering that all of the episodes were released at once on Netflix, which doesn't lend itself to recapping. Clicked over to "shows"...sure enough, no entry. Then I noticed that there was a video type blog advertised off to the side starring "Beth And Val" that featured a shot of Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. I clicked on it. Two women tipsily discussing the new paradigm that I was thinking about, and offhandedly mentioning how good the show was. And, frankly, I think that I preferred that to some turgid attempt to actually recap the series. Good on you, Beth and Val. Anything to keep TWOP's hands off of a quality work.

Oh man, somebody linked to these on another board and I'm totally amused. The mods have profile pages and predictably, Howard's is filled with warned people railing against their warnings (or in some cases, self-flagellating warnees begging forgiveness for their sins.)

I really haven't been to TWoP since shortly after the Bravo move, but it's crazy how much of my internetting can be traced back to that site. It used to be homebase for me, and still sets the standard for me in a lot of ways for what I want out of pop culture sites. With that said, Sarah is joining Tara and Dave at Previously.tv and that makes me happy. Even if I don't really understand what the site will be...

Ugh the new update to the forums has resulted in them going over capacity every five minutes. So annoying. I need to talk about Vikings!

Seriously, what the hell? How come their "fix" made things worse? Don't they test these things? I work in IT, and if I was responsible for something this buggy, I'd be out of a job.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with some mod issues. I feel like they try so hard to keep out the trolls, they've almost become trolls. With mod power. Yikes!

What I don't get is when mods seem to hate their members. I'm a mod on an LJ community, and I love the community. Yeah, I have to be the bitchy mod sometimes, but I don't enjoy doing it. I understand that being a mod isn't easy, I understand it's even understandable to overreact and/or lose your temper a bit, but I feel like they enjoy being nasty and overreacting and losing their tempers. Or at least some of them do.

I'm getting a kick out of reading The Office forums even though I don't watch the show anymore. I think it's because a good amount of members are still hoping that the show is going to get really really good at the eleventh hour and that Steve Carell will come back for the final episode, even though he has said many times that he won't be doing that. It's kind of sad and sweet at the same time, but also funny. It's like they never listen.

I think they've figured out the way to keep people from being dicks and idiots on their forums is to not let people be on their forums.

TWoP has upgraded the forums and a lot of the stuff is now a little confusing and I don't think the old links direct to boards still work. Check out the the Tech Issues thread to get all the new info. I'm not a fan of the new drop down navigation.

It was really smart for TWOP to upgrade their forums in the middle of sweeps and the day before Mad Men, Game of Thrones, and The Amazing Race finale! Oh wait, that was very dumb!

I can't wait for all these upgrades and whatever the hells they are doing are done because it's really annoying constantly having to refresh the pages.
