    is Spinquad really unsafe?

    I frequently find myself making my way to the SpinQuad forums when I'm searching Google for information about Lightwave and Lightwave plugins but I can never access them because they have been flagged as dangerous by Google. I'm not looking to stir up any bad blood I just want to know if I should completely avoid the site because it has been compromised or would compromise my computer or if this warning can be ignored.

    This whole threat thing seems to be killing Spinquads, as it appears that traffic there has fallen to about zero. It looks like months since anyone has posted.

    There are a few of us who still roam there. To my knowledge its up to the owner to contact Google to update the listing, but it looks like they haven't done it yet. We haven't seen any issues using the site.

    I think in general most boards are silent and if anything if someone wants to ask a question you generally get a quicker response here ... our boards are dead also although we have cgnetwork which is 10 more powerful in terms of forum functionality also didnt help the boards where closed for a few months however I would love to see more interaction...

    we also implemented old_skool irc chat http://lightwiki.com/forum/index http://lightwiki.com/chat

    someone should try to reach out to the LW artists whose work is up their and get them in the LW gallery. Some really excellent work has been posted there over the years.

    yes ..these warnings and actuall attacks on the site before made me drop visiting there, then also some other stuff going on
    with conflictīs between wes and some others made it become less attractive somehow.

    I still get that error to be unsafe, if the web masters canīt figure a way to fix those error warnings, why visit it..seems they donīt bother about getting
    the site correct.

    If you did not know, Wes sold Spinquad to Dave School. So there is no issue there any more as far as the site is concerned. I think the school is still in learning mode. I hope...

    if I currently try and go to the spinquad.com/forums site, I am redirected to Amazon.com for a book on modeling. Looks like the basic site for SpinQuad.com is gone. completely. That said, If I go directly to the IP for the spinQuad site, I get their Apache is working index.

    If Wes is truly gone from the site entirely; I might visit again....assuming they get these things taken care of.

    "Sir; they've got us surrounded!"

    "Excellent! Now we can attack in any direction!"

    rather than trying to pump life into that zombie, why not head over to Liberty3d.com's forums and post there?

    Cat's been a stalwart developer, evangelist and LW artist protector, so frequenting his forum seems like a good idea.

    …deleted post

    Spinquad site seems dead.

    Did any body happen to leech the whole site first? - lest all that knowledge go to an electron grave
