Danish, not that I wouldn't like an excuse to get some more time to reach 100k (and beyond), but I'm not sure if anyone can be convinced that a 619% funded project is doing poorly due to temporary internet nastiness. ;D
619% !!! Totally crazy! Will things really speed up even more? I mean the voting is quite an incentive to pledge early... I'm very excited to see what's going to happen in the next few days.
Is it possible tp prolong the KS for a few days if this seem to affect the amount of backing happening?
I've noticed that today has gone pretty slow today compared to the other days. I know there will be days like that in any KS project, it just seems to colide so could be the reason. Hopefully the backing will speed up again in the last few days :)
Thanks for the update Alex. Hopefully it will all be sorted out soon.
Phew, good to know there's no actual malware. I was really worried there'd been damage to your site. Thanks for clarifying.
@Mychyl: I'm glad you knew it wasn't me. I'm just worried about all the folks who don't know me at all. Whether they are going to think I'm sketchy or something when they see this false warning. I myself tend to be so cautious about security, gosh know what I would think if I saw that warning going to an new site.
I'll just cross my fingers that folks are as understanding as you are and that it won't hurt the Kickstarter too much. We'll see....
And yes! There never was any malware and regardless, I've removed all their ad code from my site.
I've been getting these warnings on several of my webcomics today, so I knew it had nothing to do with your site itself.
Since I use AdBlock, I'm not terribly worried about my own computer, but I'm glad to hear that it was actually harmless /and/ has already been addressed.
@Andrew: This actually seems to be hate against the Hiveworks Ad Network, not webcomics, because unlike with the BlindFerret hack, no actual malware was added. Just a link to another site or something that caused Google to THINK there was malware.
Obviously, this sucks for me but I can imagine it will be absolutely devastating to Hiveworks. I mean, if you're the creator of Questionable Content and your site gets blocked for days because of an ad are you ever going to use that network again? I know it's very unlikely I will....
Yikes, that's no fun. Some idiot with too much time really seems to hate webcomics - BlindFerret's servers were hacked twice in the last few months and malware put into the hosted comics' sites. (I think some folks moved from BF to Hiveworks shortly after that, too.)
