Any updates from site admins/moderators?

Postby Tornelco » Thu Oct 03, 2019 6:57 pm

This forum just went dead over the weekend and it has been almost a week with no updates. What happened? Is the forum done? How long until it is back (if it's coming back).

I was hoping a higher-up would come to our little pocket of "no more public talks?" but alas, I will make this post and see.

Sorry, we just can't say anything right now. It will take some time before we sort through everything. Please be patient.

Thanks for you reply,
Happy to see it was not a hack. I hope that the 20 years of history is backed up but I can see how that won't be possible if some police services are angry about this forum... I dunno, all I can do is hypothesize! It is in my investigative nature as a wannabe cop ;)

No one was angry with the forum. It has been a valuable resource for everyone for 20 years. On the contrary, we had officers from around the world and recruiters from major agencies who were all active on here.

We will have an announcement soon. Everyone involved is working hard to restore the forum.

It came from outside this country, but it is now a police matter and I cannot say more.
This is very reassuring. Thanks a lot for the update. Hope everything goes well on your end! :thumbsup:

All signs point to it being a hack.

Hopefully we get a full "police-style" press release after the whole thing is resolved! Ya know, for transparency and everything.

well this may explain what happened to my account..It didn't recognize my user name and allowed me to reregister with the same user name..
that doesn't sound promising in regards to restoring data..
I've got an inch a half guard rail nut on a length of 550 cord. it's not whiz-bang tactical, but one smack in the grape and it's colouring books for Christmas.

Hello to all our faithful and engaged forum users. Thank you for your patience over the past week or so.

The forum has encountered some spurious activity. To be proactive and safe, we have had to revert the forums back to a former point in history—Aug. 22, 2018, to be exact.

We understand this is frustrating and we apologize for any inconvenience.

That being said, the private forums are still active and available for members. The private forums have not lost data. We are still in the thick of looking at all accounts and removing unused accounts going forward, so please take that into consideration.

We want to make this a free-form discussion about law enforcement in Canada and we will be monitoring it and keeping things cleaner going forward.

If you have any feedback, do feel free to share it in the comments below.

We hope you will join us in treating this as a fresh start.

Edit:
Never mind. I found the forum. I assume it's all part of the issues being fixed.
Thank you admin folks.


Do we need to resubmit for the member access?
If so to who?

TEST

EDIT: Ok so now I can post. Hey admins/mods. My home address was IP blacklisted for spamming... I think I was caught in the crossfire against bots.

I tried to go through the proper channels through the link provided to get unblacklisted but no avail. I then sent a private message to "ReneeFrancoeur" but no response yet in 3 days (which is fine, thanksgiving weekend and all that). So yeah, I'm back at my university now which is not blacklisted but yeah, can one of the administrators check into my blacklisted IP. I won't be providing it in the post for obvious reasons lol...
