Good day chap,
So recently I made an Anipan account #8091.
For people who do not know what Anipan is,
It's pretty much the same as DeviantArt except mainly focused around manga/anime art.
There are a lot of problems with the site though,
Their servers are REALLY slow, most likely due to the heavy traffic.
You don't get any notifications for new followers and the such.
There's no view counter so you have no idea if your artwork is even being viewed.
Uploading more than one artwork at a time doesn't work for me...
A lot of the icons don't show up...
But then again, it's just starting out so I guess these bugs or inconveniences are to be expected...
So recently there has been a rumor going around saying that there are hackers who will use your account to post mean comments or block others.
I have no idea whether this is true or not... but just to be sure,
If I ever post mean things or block you, know that it's not me.
I never 'troll' or post hate messages to people.
I also never block anyone unless they are art thieves or people who hate on me or others.
The best way to protect yourselves from hackers is to properly manage your account and computer.
Don't have passwords like, "123456" or "password".
Make your password is something like, "19s8fjkl23n89s".
If you have trouble coming up with something like, "19s8fjkl23n89s" then I would recommend this method:
Just slam your hand against the keyboard and start typing randomly,
Then highlight a random section of it, and get rid of the rest.
Then you scramble those letters.
Then you add random numbers.
You can also choose to capitalize some letters for added security.
So... why this crazy method? Well it's just to make sure it's completely random. Although you may be thinking that you can create something completely random without having to do this method, your subconsciousness will choose letters or numbers in a way that relate to you in some way. Trust me, sounds ridiculous but that's how your subconsciousness works.
Don't have a word document on your computer with all your passwords. If a hacker hijacks your computer, they then have access to all your passwords. Instead, have a small piece of paper with your passwords in a secret place if you cannot remember them.
Don't use real words in your passwords. Computers can crack passwords with real words in them almost instantly.
Don't share your password with ANYONE. If you really must, then change your password immediately afterwards.
Have a good anti-virus software. A software that deals with viruses, malwares, trojans, spywares, etc. all at once are often times better.
Don't have more than one anti-virus software active at one time. Anti-virus softwares actually come with viruses so that they can use them to identify similar activity on your computer. So, if you have more than one anti-virus, then software A will think software B's viruses in its vault are foreign viruses and get rid of them. Thus, you're left with a anti-virus software that detects nothing because its virus vault is empty.
Have a nice day!
