It has come to my attention that one of the pokemon news sites, pokebeach was hacked. It’s front page now has meteorites flying around and banners that are going bananas. The site will be down for updates as WPM tries to fix it. Note: This might mean a few more members coming our way, as people might worry that the site is broken and want to find somewhere new for the time being! This isn’t 100% accurate, but it isn’t a huge stretch either. If you are photosensitive, do not, I repeat do NOT go onto beach for the time being.~~
It has come to my attention that pokebeach doesn’t appear to be hacked. It appears as though he is trying to remake the site. Unfortunately I don’t know why there are all these different tactics being done, regardless I’m done with it! He blocked me on twitter for my tweet of “Wanna lose followers on a clutch pokemon site? Follow pokebeach’s example! Stupid pranks.”. Though it was a little passive, I know a few individuals who are photosensitive who fell victim to the spammy gif. Anyways no reason to worry about it now! Just WPM remaking the site, or something! -shrugs-
I have friends who are photo sensitive and a spammy gif and flashy meteorites was not the way to proceed in the remodeling of the site. I said one tweet about how foolish the prank was, and he proceeded to block me. Ahh well.
sucks for them as they had no way to know. But as a slight deviation, how do they survive on thr internet not knowing which sites will have flashing images? I think i have maybe seen a warning for it 2-3 times in the 17 years I have been using the net.
