Looks like we've been targeted. Make sure the mythal isn't compromised Alaundo!

Someone should tell the Emerald Sage that Elminster doesn't need viagra.

Well met


Just spotted it, George. Appears that a Scribe has been hacked, rather than a new spammer account. Posts removed and account locked down until I can inform the scribe.

Many thanks.

I see at least 3 ads covering the bottom half of the scrolls on my screen, but nowhere else on any other website...is this related to the account of the hacked scribe?

Please forgive any spelling and grammer errors, as my android touch-screen phone has no spellchecker. If I do make a grammer mistake, please let me know and I'll try to fix it.

Somehow I'm missing my Eberron stuff that the gremlins took when my laptop died over a year ago, but I shall get them buggers yet!

I see no ads at all when I visit the 'Keep, and I do so from multiple devices, browsers, and operating systems.

Seems odd to only get ads when on one site, but I'm guessing it's something on your end. Have you tried from another browser?

I only have Chrome as a browser on my laptop. Internet Explorer always lags or just simply won't work. And since my laptop has been giving me the blue screen of death every now and again, I'm not installing anything else on it (and am in the process of backing up all necessary files, like my Documents, Music, Videos, Pictures, games, etc.).

All of those things could be symptoms of malware.

My laptop is 4.5 years old and the harddrive is about 3 years old...plus with the amount of abuse it gets between me carrying it everywhere and then the little ones (not my own, but kids in my family who are under 5 years old and have no concept of how to treat electronics other than slapping/throwing the device), I'm surprised it's survived this long! And I haven't seen the ads today, so maybe it was just a fluke. (I haven't done a scan disk/defrag since June, so it wasn't something on my end).
