The problems have been going on for several hours.  I posted on the Support Forum, which itself has been up and down, asking where the Admins and Support Staff are.  Surely they know there are major problems???

Post by bimbow on 13th June 2013, 00:08

Well.  Darklord has recently posted this.  KK, I hope it's ok if I quote it.  It might get deleted, and a link would not work.

"What the ***k is going on?

Are you lot a bunch of schoolkids or amateurs?

There are multiple problems affecting multiple forums for several weeks and all we 'customers' get is, a big fat nothing!

For God's sake the problem that is supposed to be Talk Talk's fault from April hasn't been resolved.

The problem with people getting getting kicked off their sites after the downtime last Tuesday hasn't been resolved.

And now, there are more sites that are affected that can't even get access to their sites!!!!!!

Sorry support I know that you are volunteers and all that, but you just aren't good enough. Maybe it's not your responsibility to fix things? but you are "SUPPORT" and you ain't giving us any dang customer support. If you can't handle it? then QUIT NOW give someone else a chance to do what the title says!!!

I'll be only too happy to give it a go. all you P***ed of customers take a vote and I will do my best for you, look at it this way, I can't do any less, can I?

This problem with Talk Talk has been going on for months and the link here is not the first instance. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=115919

This problem has been ongoing for over a week: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=117261

Noe virtually 7 days later this problem occurs, concurrently with the aforementioned problems: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=117615

When are you so called engineers gonna get their fingers out from where the Sun don't shine and do some ***king work?

If I were 'Customer support' I would be badgering them every 5 minutes for some sort of response, what good is a customer support with no Info? USELESS that's what it is. It's your job to push for information to give to customers

Guys, do what you will? but vote for me and I'll not let you down, Look back in the thread, ok my fixes may not have worked, but at least I tried for you guys, who else has given you any help here or tried to help? I promise that I will help you if I am successful in being voted in as Admin here, I'll never ignore you or let you down!

I don't know how to go about it but start a poll or whatever? or contace the owners of freeforums 'Crowdgather' to make your feelings known
contact them here http://www.crowdgather.com/contact/

Or contact the owner direct on his twitter account here: https://twitter.com/crowdgather

It's in your hands, but give me your trust and I will not let you guys down.

Darklord"

Just seen your post now, BB.  That was lucky - you copying Darklord's post before it disappeared.
I would definitely vote for him to become involved in the support side of things on the Support Forum.  He is the ONLY one that helped me when I was posting there about the TalkTalk problem, way back before I got p----d off with FFs.  Darklord is admin of a whizzo site that actually gives all sorts of technical advice for forum admins, LearnForFree or something like that, it's called.  He runs it with his wife.  I actually joined there, as a lot of the stuff is only accessible for members, but not only is it a great informative resource, it has a lovely friendly feel about it as well, nice atmosphere .... BUT !!!!  registering was as far as I got ... because it is a FreeForum and of course I was experiencing exactly the same problems there as with all other FFs.

Recent post from Wickett (Admin on FFs).


Just to update everyone, FreeForums is currently the recipient of frequent and severe DDoS attacks, which is why everyone's forums are down. Everyone is hard at work to mitigate the attacks, and will have everything back to normal as soon as we can.

Again, we apologize for this inconvenience, and we appreciate your continued patience.

They've not been right since all of this started.  angry  On-Off-On-Off .....  Yes, there was a problem a few minutes ago, but now they're showing okay.  Whether they're working okay or not is a different story.

If the Support Forum is now being affected too, then it really is serious.
I try not to look in on the Support Forum these days if I can help it ... just end up getting really, really annoyed and angry at the inadequacy.  Never had any of these problems when Jackal was around.  Now he's gone and some of the other good staff as well, it's just been one thing after another.

Well, the Support Forum is back up - for the time being at least.

SL and Skeps are still down.  I did manage to get into Spiritlove long enough to post a notice about this problem, but not sure whether it got posted up or not, because the site is straight back down again.

Here is a link to one of the threads on the Support Forum giving information on this issue:

Support down again.  I did get a response on FB ........
Kayleigh Monks http://support.freeforums.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&p=528057#p528057
Currently having problems with DDoS attacks on the servers, this is why the forum is having a lot of downtime.


But the problems seem to be beyond their abilities.  Or perhaps I'm underestimating the difficulties - it's not an issue I understand.
