No worries, lol. I may edit a title in, probably the one you used on GG.

That plugin has had some comparability issues with things in general that I have had to work around, some I can't. I'm using the built-in "thread tag" functionality now with some added code to replace their text with images that I didn't have back when I added that plugin, so I may transfer some things like NEWS over to tags and eliminate the rest.

Edit: Fixed.

Whoops, I guess my internet chaos is following me around. LOL

I also expect they will work things out. The existing deal was Sony would do all the financing of a film and Disney would get 5% of the opening gross, the proposed new deal by Disney was for 50/50 cost and profit sharing. It sounds fair but it would be a significant loss of money for Sony(the last Spidey movie made over a billion dollars). I don't get all the hate at Sony for not taking a bath on what would be a much worse deal for them. They probably will settle on something between 25/75 and 40/60, with Sony having the advantage.

After the Fox deal, Sony and Universal are the only two outside companies that still have rights to some of Marvel's characters. Marvel can’t feature the Hulk in a starring role without being contractually obliged to allow Universal to distribute the film. That’s why the last Hulk solo was 2010’s The Incredible Hulk, which was before Marvel Studios was purchased by Disney. A lot of the Hulk's supporting cast is in the same boat most notably including She-Hulk. There is a similar but separate situation with Universal regarding the rights to Namor.

I see you discovered a bug in the Thread Icons plugin that apparently allow posting a thread without a title. :D
The http://storage.proboards.com/5732327/images/cgLOJ3_ViiBy9g1pX3iN.png icon will at least take you to the thread from the homepage, there isn't even an icon in the Recently Active Threads sidebar.
Edit: now that I have posted a reply, the icon HAS appeared in the sidebar. ???

I have been considering eliminating that plugin for a few reasons, now I have more...

And its on. Disney and Sony were in negotiations in regards to Spider-Man. There are a lot of articles about it but I'll only link one. It was all over twitter and its easy to google.

I chose the NYTimes article because I trust them and the Wall Street Journal.


Anyway - they're probably work something out but Spider-Man is the only character left as far as I know that isn't completely in the House of Mouse.

It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

Great story. Hickman continues to deliver.

There are tons of Easter egg wordplays...

I've noticed Hickman has used the word Oblivion several times in HoX/PoX...

Dare we hope... before time, he was, at the end of all things he waits...

Thanks! That actually makes me feel better. When the engineer told me that it was 100's of IP's, I was a little surprised.

I'm changing servers, using Cloudflare, they offer protection from DDoS attacks. I just took care of it today. The engineer I talked to said it could take up to 48 hours for the change, which is fine.

I jokingly told a couple of guild members, that three engineers later and a beer for my nerves, I hope I've got it fixed. LOL

Yes, I really did talk to three engineers, one from my provider, one from my domain name place and one other who said he couldn't help me. LOL
by Icefanatic
From what I've read on DDoS attacks, it could be they are targeting a range of IP addresses and GG is just one of them, it may not have anything specifically to do with your site itself.
by neko
Sadly, its still being attacked, but, I'm more aware as is my service engineer. I sent them a note this morning. This is not something I want to deal with all the time.
