  1. I have been talking to Dwayne today, and we've decided the best course of action is that we run the two side by side. We will spend tomorrow updating and reopening this particular forum, and it will be run by the current moderators. I will be a silent admin, as for me to walk away, take my dads name off the forum and move servers etc, is a complete data protection horror show. We couldn't just hand over everyone details and so we'd basically just be binning off the forum. While I was a tad cheesed off last night, that would be a complete dick move and I'm not willing to do that. S
  2. The emails I received were on Sunday afternoon. There were three in quick succession that I didn't get until Monday morning because I had taken Sunday afternoon off (a rarity). The emails had a go at me for tweeting. Which I was of the belief I was free to do. I had acknowledged the problems with the new forum and had said they were all passed on to Dwayne and that he was getting them all fixed. In my mind I had nothing else in my control as it was being dealt with, and any updates I got would be relayed. Any updates I've had I have passed on. As I've sai
  3. Someone else can take it over, and we'll remove ourselves from it. I will talk to Dwayne about how this is possible. I replied in the new forum about the issues raised and said I am would pass on to Dwayne and also said that the move would be delayed. I didn't realise I had to post in the mod chat here, what I had already posted on there. Nothing will be moved over and I will arrange for someone else to take over the running costs/hosting and liability for the forum asap.
  4. I took the afternoon off yesterday (a Sunday) and went for some beers with my brother. Something I haven't done for months. I then got up to very shitty emails from ink about how I was ignoring him but posting on Twitter. I wasn't checking emails as I had taken the afternoon off. I have since read through all the posts in this forum and the insults for things I've had nothing to do with, and I'm out. I will talk to Dwayne on Wednesday as I've said I would, and will advise that someone else takes over the forum, and we'll remove ourselves from it.
  5. "he" is here, and exactly what moderator was I ignoring?
  6. We've brought in a new pair of webmasters, on staff rather than paying outside companies. They've completely rebuilt everything so it's all integrated together. Thats the main site, ickonic, the shop, and the forum. The social aspect was a webmasters idea and he has spent a while building it. We were hoping that we could build up a community aswell as a forum for debate. We get tonnes of emails daily from people that feel alone and disconnected from friends and family when it comes to their views. They avoid posting on FB about their beliefs as it comes back and they get abused fo
  7. There are a couple of bugs that Dwayne is working to fix. He says worse case scenario another 48 hours but should be up and running way sooner and good to go. Once again, apologies for delay.
  8. Hi all! So, we are currently moving all the members and posts across to the new forum. You'll all receive a sign up email, probably Monday morning now, for you to click through into the new forum. I'm sorry for all the hassle and delays over the last few weeks. We're nearly there, and hopefully it will be worth is and you'll really like the new set up.
  9. Thanks for all the suggestions, folks. Have sent the thread to the web guy so he can implement as much as possible.
  10. The new forum is very nearly complete. The new davidicke.com will go live today and so all focus then moves to getting the new forum live. New webmaster has asked me if there are any functions that are important to you guys. If you have anything you really want the new forum to be able to do, drop it in here and I'll pass it on. He reckons it can all be implemented and live by the end of the week, so hopefully that will be a nice bit of news for everyone, after what has been a complete ball ache few weeks.
  11. I have just seen this. The one or two line updates are such, because I thought I had encompassed everything in there. The old forum is based on a server that we're trying to gain access to. It's complicated but once we get everything back, that forum will go live again. It wasn't taken down by ourselves, and it wasn't taken down by a hack. It was just a server issue that hopefully will be resolved soon. We have a new webmaster that is learning our system on the job basically. We had a former webmaster that in the name of security (we were and are being at
  12. I updated with a post yesterday. We have a web developer building a brand new forum and social that is infinitely better than this, with tonnes more options. It was something we were planning to do anyway, it's just this attack has underlined the need to do it. As for the deleted data from the forum, our webmaster is working on retrieving all of that. But davidicke.com and iconic.com have both been under a sustained attack, and as you can see from the homepage of davidicke.com, we're still not running at 100%. We're a small team and we are spread across multiple jobs,
  13. He is taking a break. Is absolutely fine and asked to pass on his best wishes.
  14. Hi everyone. It looks like we're currently back to relatively normal at the moment. Davidicke.com was under a sustained attack for over 72 hours and Ickonic was under a sustained attack for about 48 hours. They seem ok now. We're currently building a brand new social forum that will be better integrated, have more options, including zoom conference capabilities, chat rooms etc. Plus far better security. Hopefully won't be long at all.
  15. We are fighting off attacks on davidicke.com, and it appears that they've moved their attention to taking down Ickonic.com with ddos attacks there. We'll weather the storm and then look at returning the forum to normal, or as close to normal as possible asap. At the moment new sign ups are disabled, and will stay that way until we're confident we're through this.
