Great! (Lord knows we need some new posts in something equivalent to rping...) I'm gonna make a thread for me and Orube (Huh....Did I ever get to give her a Mint...?) in Kandrakar. Hopefully she'll post in it.

You guys, I really hate myself. >< It seems I really do have to leave the RPG. For good My cousins computer broke down because of this site...because it's a "portal" (I'm not good with computers so I don't really know what that means. All I know is that it's a "portal for viruses to come into the computer.") So unfortunately I can't get on at home, and it's a major risk coming on at school >< Or in a public place. *sigh* It sucks because I would have loved to stay on here ><
If you guys want my email, you can PM. I am so sorry you guys
Aw I'm so sorry to hear that Susan. You will be missed. I hope you can come back someday soon. Maybe you can get a virus program like Tridy said. You can usually get a pretty good virus program at Best Buy for about $10 with a rebate or the free one Tridy suggested.
I don't understand why this particular site would have a lot of viruses though. Has anyone else experienced something like this? Is it the ads?

I've been going to this site since 2006 and not once have I ever encountered a virus. Avast will alert you whenever a virus tries and sneaks in. I know this cause I've had that problem with Deviantart from time to time. If you go to Deviantart a lot Susan chances are you probably got a virus from there.
The buggers suck but they're a common occurrence in today's world unfortunately. You just gotta have the right protection to keep your machines safe. Avast updates on a daily basis (not once a week unlike some programs) so it stays up to date. I've been using it for a while and I'm never going back to Norton.

well it's my cousin's computer, so I can't get anything, not even an anti-virus. :/ I could definitely come back here one day, but it'll be a long time from now, when I get to the point of being able to afford my OWN computer. it's just been sh**y trying deal with cousin's comp. if he takes it away, i have no computer at all. i don't go on deviant art much, Tridy, and my cousin told it was this site in particular that caused. he said the virus points to this site so I'm rly sorry you guys. unless i could afford my own comp, which would take so long (seriously, i don't have a job yet. i'm trying to get one. if i do get a job, i'd hav very little money and wouldn't be able to get a computer) so i'm rly sorry ><

okay guys, here's what I can do for now: i'm using the computer on my campus. hopefully this "virus" my cousin is ranting at me about doesn't effect these computers b/c they r new and probably hav advanced software. plus, there's an entire sanction of computers where gamer geeks download all kinds of stuff...(although most do it on their laptops, i've seen plenty do it on the school comps). if these school computers can deal with the crap those games come with, i'm sure it can put up with this RPG but this does mean i might come on less often than usual, but still fairly often >< (every three or four days at the latest). there is a week long break coming up tho, so i'll let u guys know when i'm off for a week
PS: on wednesday i can't get on a at all; no class
Does your cousins' computer have any anti-virus software at all? If it doesn't then there is no way they can blame it on your or this site. One if they don't have a virus software then the virus can be coming from anywhere so it's not right to blame it on you and two if there isn't a virus software to notify you when there's a virus attacking there's no way they could figure out the viruses are coming from this site. If there is a virus software on the computer do you know which they have?
I'm sorry if I'm coming off strong or seem like I'm blaming you or them. I'm just trying to find a way to help you. And I don't think it's fair that you seem to be being blamed for the virus problem when I'm 90% sure there is nothing wrong with this site
Twas Arnold the happy dancing cupcake. Mess with him and he'll nom nom nom you.

lol thanks guys ^^ I dunno, one day the comp totally shut down. All of documents were gone and stuff D: and my cousin screamed at me! he was all like "u go on that stupid site too much! I checked the history; the virus is because of that site!" so I had to compromise somehow and school is the only option >< even if u guys r right, i have no say in my house -__-;; ppl don't listen to me. if I do get my own laptop (which well b one day, I promise) I'll be sure to order Avast and Netflix (my cousin is charging me for watching movies on there even tho it is his account....he doesn't charge his gf or his friends, who do the same thing
Tridart/Sandpit: And so another year has come to an end. I hope everyone out there had a happy holidays and a happy new year. Godspeed to everyone out there. Bring on the Switch!
