I'm not sure if this should go somewhere else, but this seemed the most logical place to me. If I need to move it let me know.

Every time I go on the Wists website my AVG Antivirus pops up and tells me it has detected a threat, and the Wist site gets redirected to a (AVG blocked) page. It's only when i try to look at people's wist, not when I add, but it concerns me, as I've had to deal with computer viruses before and it sucked.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Yikes.  I haven't gone there in a while, but I just clicked your Wists and had it pop up.  It surely is a virus of some sort.  It actually looks very similar to an issue we had here a month or so ago.

I don't have much info about it at this time, but you might want to try contacting Wists directly here:  http://www.wists.com/contactus2.php

I actually am having a problem with wists as well.  But mine is that I can't even get into the site.  Every time I try, I get a broken link message.  Has anyone seen that?

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

I've been trying for the last couple of days and it comes back with a cannot find server error.  Doesn't matter when or whose link I use or even just plain www.wists.com

My problem has now changed to that. Maybe they are trying to fix something?

I read that they are powered by Gawker.com so I went on there and posted an issue in their troubleshooting section. http://getsatisfaction.com/gawker/topics/what_happened_to_the_wists Everyone should go complain on there and maybe that will get it fixed faster. It's worth a shot

We got a reply from the founder of wists, and they are installing new hardware over the weekend, so hopefully it will be back and working on Monday. I neeeed wists right now for swapping!
