    Anyone else notice how the site title in the top tab now says SG Guitars instead of EverythingSG? Also when I get emails about watched threads it now comes from SG Guitars instead of Everything SG. Looks like the change took place on 3/7 in the evening. Whatever you do, DO NOT go to sgguitars dot com or you will get a virus warning if protected and if not protected, you may very well get something you do not want to have in your computer.

    I'm seeing Everything SG right now. I haven't been on much this week, so I hadn't noticed.

    You do not have to be on an email list, I have my alert preferences set to send me an email when ever someone replies to a thread that I have replied to.

    Humm, interesting and now that you mention it... I see it too. I'm out of the loop now but assume the mods will know if something is changing. Hopefully, someone will give us a heads up.

    I would imagine that it is for SEO.

    Alex is trying to head off some of the increased spam we have been seeing and some of the moderation stuff we see even before it hits the pages. My tab at the top has said SG Guitar but more commonly says the SG Guitar/ EverythingSG.com. I am not aware of anything "going on" so I don't think we need to get our high E's in screech mode yet........

    I noticed that too,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Maybe it is because of that hacking that happened and Alex had to change some stuff?

    This is correct. I'll try to make it so that emails have "EverythingSG.com" as the email sender or title.

    From now on new members must make at least 5 posts in order to edit their homepage link, add a signature and upload images. This restriction should help reduce the amount of spam we receive.
