Not sure who runs this site or why there is resistance to upgrades but it is becoming dangerous to visit here. I like to read posts here and if I did not want to visit I wouldn't. Hopefully this can be resolved soon.

NIP, do you have any response or reason things are happening like this?

Well, I will be here, no matter how long it takes.

And BTW, "danwolfe.me" comes up infected with a "bitcoin miner" when I go there.

So do we know if this is spoofed or if this person has some relationship with the site?


I should also add that some pages seem fine like the portal and such. Seems mainly involving the index page for me.

I'm running a Mac and FireFox and get it too. I can type in the URL for the site and get on but the watch dog is a PITA.

I've been getting the pop-up for several days. Today, I went into my home page search box and typed 'American Preppers Network', clicked on the site link and finally got in. This Watchdog business is creepy.

I'm going to blame the Democrats! LOL. :x

I cant even get to the forum list without it popping up.

OK guys, and gals, my system isn't showing any actual threat.
Seems to be a prank.

You can still get to the list, or index, of forums, by clicking
on "portal" instead of Index.

Is anybody having any issues with any other parts, besides the index?

Trying to mark posts read is an issue. My other post was locked but referred to a thread from 2013 and it appears to be part of the hosting. Regardless, it’s likely not infected but clearly something has happened and whoever is in charge of the site no longer seems to be addressing technical concerns. Is what it is I guess.

Getting the Watchdog login thing also. Having some trouble getting around it.

I hope the network administrator is working to resolve this issue.

Sounds like, from the post that the server that holds this message board is infected.

Just give it a shot of Penicillin and tell it to take 2 days off.

Ohhhhhh . . . . NOW I understand what you are all talking about! I saw the snip at the bottom of the APN page (I posted a photo of it a few posts above). But I never got a pop-up window, because I have the 'new posts' page bookmarked in my tool bar.

BUT ... today ... I met up with the 'Watchdog':
Screen Shot 2018-02-05 at 7.19.14 PM.png
:eek: Nasty guy! I found him, because I went to the 'Portal' page and then clicked on the 'Board Index' tab. I was looking for a specific Admin page and was traveling through the APN forum and there 'he' was!

I hope NIP & his back-stage IT helpers can figure this out! I'm sorry that I can't help with this. I'm just a worker-bee.

RM, someone locked my other post to a thread which is fine. I searched members earlier today and saw that NIP has not been on the site since the day after Christmas. I did not see any other indication of who might be an admin. I am sure I don't see all there is to see but it would seem that this site is not being attended to anymore. I know things go by the wayside and this site might simply be a part of history but I would like to know since I do like to visit daily. Not sure you have any answers but thought I would throw that out there as it were. Something is amiss.

I have sent a PM to NIP to let him know there is concern about this 'Watchdog' that is barking at our door. Hoping to hear from him soon. -k
