We've been having some DB issues with wowace and curseforge, so we're going to be doing some tinkering on the DB server.
I'm sure some of you have noticed the long pauses when trying to visit pages on wowace and/or curseforge, and our hope is to fix this issue.
We predict that the downtime shouldn't be more than a few hours, but it's always hard to gauge these things.
We also plan to have another downtime soon to finish the task, though probably not today.
We're back up, people. It only took half an hour, which we're very pleased with. There still will be another downtime later, but probably not today.

Projects with no activity over a period of six months are automatically marked as abandoned.
To mark a project unabandonded, simply go to the Actions drop-down, and select Unabandon project, check the Confirm box and click Mark Project as Unabandoned.

I hope everyone has had a great Christmas, or observation of choice. Sorry I didn't post it earlier, my internet is spotty atm.
Anyway, blessed holidays to all!

There are a great number of people who are claiming that after downloading QuestHelper and/or the CurseClient that they are getting hacked, keylogged, or that their babies are being stolen by ninja mutant Elvises (or would it be Elvisi?).
I'd like to point out that the first two are as likely as the last, providing that:
Sadly these type of rumors are often started and perpetuated by people looking to discredit others and most of the attacks I've seen recently are slanted as anti-Curse.
There was recently a 24 page thread generated (in one freaking day!) on the official WoW forums. The instance of some of the posters there into ascribing guilt to various people and groups combined with some obvious misinformation makes me wonder if it's an intentional propaganda move. However, this is mere speculation as I have no evidence to support the thoughts as fact.
As far as keyloggers go. Please keep in mind it's most likely not the last thing you did that got your account comprised. It is a fairly common practice for these the groups responsible for hacking your accounts to wait weeks or even months before attempting to use a password.
Also, brute force attacks are not completely unheard of. So if your password is 'god', 'sex', or 'secret' please change it right away!
Lastly, a few things to remember:
