I do get checked when I first enter the forum and if I go idle when I refresh page I get checked again 

 

...Same. Thanks for the feedback. I am not into complaining either, I do understand they are having bigger problems right now and do their best to fix all current issues. I just find it is only practical to let the admin, the mods know what's happening on our side and let the other posters know that they are not the only ones dealing with these new glitches, ...it's very confusing indeed. 2 days ago I couldn't even log in. It was a relief to read other ppl posts about the issues I was having as I just didn't know what to think. So, I thank everyone who mentioned the tech issues on their side as it gave me some realistic idea of what was happening.

The forum was hacked / attacked and done in a professional and purposeful manner.   We are currently trying to fix it all.

We are too close to the truth apparently. Fucking wankers. 

What we currently know ....   An admin account was corrupted and used to delete the accounts of all other admin and mods. The accounts were made into guest accounts. I wasn't listed as

I dont understand why the backup dump cannot be restored, surely in this day and age you can deflect the attacks but captcha etc. I find it really odd that all the old info/postings made to dissapear, there seems to be a lot of effort in this.

 

 

This will probably depend on how compromised the database and what the backup strategy is and if there is a "clean" backup available. If the database backup is restored to the "last known good" version then it's possible that the hackers may have access to the forum passwords as they may have downloaded the relevant tables, in which case a mass password refresh may be required. It's also possible that there is a trojan account in place that may also have been backed up. This is all dependent on what exploit was used to hack the forum.

 

If it's possible to get a successful restore, then the current ("temporary?") posts and threads will either need to be merged with the original, or discarded.

The fact that it has taken this long to resolve would indicate that there is not a straightforward fix.

Unfortunately, malfunctioning, embedded Youtube videos seem to be a serious problem on this forum right now. I would strongly recommend that all forumites, who ever embed Youtube videos in to their posts, go the extra mile and add the direct link to the Youtube video as well. For example, as follows:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1X2Ys7-UnE

The London live interview with icke would probably have something to do with this I would think. That's if the ptb had something to do with this... 

 

Perhaps. 
The walls are closing in when it comes to censorship anyway. Plus as previously stated the forum has been attacked countless times. 

Still... WE SHALL NOT BE SILENCED.

I think your going a bit too deep, if they dont want to know - fine so be it, if people want to believe the lies over you, so be it then.

 

If your idea of making it harder is correct then I wouldn't argue with you.

All I was saying that you could be closing the door for them before any conversation starts.

NLP is part of me so why would I disadvantage myself? It doesn't make sense but it's the world of upside down and all that. ?

Yes, true say, I agree.

I have been trying to post what I think very important information about certain salts that we can use to protect or help cure ourselves from from this virus and many others, according a video I found days ago, but this site's security system still won't allow me to post that information and the video as a new subject. So, I am trying it here, as I think this very important indeed!

 

I have also discovered a book linked to this: "The Zodiac and The Salts of Salvation", by George W. Carey, first published in 1932! But recently published again too and available online.

Well, here goes. I hope this time I am successful in posting this.

Just wanted to tell you to those who is getting a "you are blocked" message.

 

What I find out is that, if I was to post a reply it allows me but when I quote a post and reply it blocks me. But not always though.

So I did sneaky and just posted a reply "TEST" typed in and once that's been posted I was going to edit my post.

Well I got this message then.

This comment can no longer be edited. It may have been moved or deleted, or too much time may have passed since it was posted for it to be edited.

 

...even though I have just posted my text 'just now' or less than a minute so theoretically I would have been able to edit my post.

You have a PM. Yesterday it all worked, all of a sudden. Today it brings me back to "you've been blocked" page. Can anyone inform us when posting will be functional again? On other threads ppl are reporting this issue too. Maybe, at least for existing users, sth can be adjusted, technically speaking?  Btw, PM-ing you was a challenge too.

This is trivial when you've a lot on your plate (admin) but I just thought I'd mention that I don't seem to get my allocation of reactions replenished each day. I'm not deeply concerned, but thought it worth mentioning (I don't want folk to think I'm stingy with my likes ?).

I think it literally has a timer against every like, so instead of resetting everyday it sorts of releases each like with a 24 hour turnaround. Does that make any sense?

 

send me likes if so I'm short of a few as I keep being a git :-)

Can the admins tell us if the sub forums will be returned? 

 

From a tactical position dont tell us exactly what you will do, in case the hacker is observing the forum. But we do need to know if all of the various sub forums will be getting restored.

 

I have a mountain of submissions waiting to be posted.

Well we could use more 'gits' like you! :classic_biggrin:

 

They seem to just become available to me lately in 1's or 2's sporadically.

I can't submit a new thread here. What happened?

 

Seems to me if you start a new topic containing attachments, links or embeds then you get the "you are blocked" message.

Yep.
And you can't copy / paste.
Text needs to be 'plain text'.
l'm about to start a thread - "Not Alone".
l'll put title in and short description in the opening post, with the video link in the second comment /post.
Only way it works at the moment.

erm, question, i use a VPN which masks my IP address to different countries.

 

i just checked my forum settings.

and my recently used devices all come up as from london:

https://social.davidicke.com/index.php?/settings/devices/

 

even though the VPN i'm using now isn't UK and even before they were worldwide :classic_ohmy:

 

I believe we had this discussion before and it was established that all members were having their location reported as this same London postcode.

 

I don't think we ever got any 'official' answer, but best guess is that this forum is itself accessed through a proxy, perhaps via Cloudflare?
