Soooo...

Do someone visit here anymore?

It seems Tarja's forum was hacked. Of course this is a supposition and maybe there are some technical problems but... really, WTH O_O

And I needed somewhere to post this Razz

If you´re referring to the layout, I´ve never really liked it Neutral but I used to love the forum a lot. It felt like a safe haven in the waters of the Internet.

First, we need a gathering place where we can discuss setting up a new forum ... and then we need to find ways to make as many Tarja fans as possible aware of that gathering place. Unless Tarja or Marcelo themselves become active, of course. x)

Now THAT I¡'d like to see hahaha! We can tell people to come here for a while and... is it amid your responsibilities to see about a new forum, Florian? If so, I'd suggest a simplemachines forum Razz they are really safe.

Looks at two spam posts and one normal post and feels like on official Tarja board...

I'd probably miss the official board more if it would not have been swamped with spam posts recently...90 % and you had to find the real posts with the magnifying glass...if the same now happens here, well, let's say it ain't fun like that...

I've already alerted Naiad on the problem and she promised to take care of it tonight.

Lara: I don't have any official responsibilities outside the forums where I'm admin. Razz

We'll just have to discuss how we would like the new forum to be like, should it turn out we need one. But Tarja and Marcelo are already informed!

So I ended up on FB in the middle of the night, saw Daniela's "forum down" message there, saw Almagest's Chavez message, checked blog post, saw Almagest's message pointing this way and remembered that I in fact registered here a long time ago. Damn. I suppose chances that the old board is down due to an upgrade are slim?

Well, as I've said on Facebook, I have a database backup from March 10 - just in case all else fails. I don't know the webmaster, but I always did assume that he (?) makes backups on a regular basis, too. But it's always good to have something to fall back on, of course.

BTW, great to have you here! Welcome to our little forum! Why don't you write a short (or longer, whatever you prefer) introduction post? Smile

Yeah, I was admin there and when I went to forum it said it was down or whatever. I heard a lot of accounts and admins were deleted. I tried logging in and sure enough I had been deleted.

I was also there when it all happened and I could watch it disappear bit by bit. I even took screencaps.
First all the other languages sections were gone, then only the english part remained.
The admin accounts had been deleted first I guess because they were all guests.
I posted in the Off topic thread what was going on and others joined. Then slowly threads were deleted, with every refresh there were less articles in total. It was like watching a sinking ship. Evil or Very Mad Finally, all accounts appeared as guests and the only thread left was the off topic thread where the discussion was going on. This was a proof to me that someone was doing it deliberately. Sad
Oh well, hope it will go on somehow.

I think Marcelo would know about it, if it was being upgraded Neutral

Well, at least there still are a few places to discuss... We've recently opened a forum at Tarja World News as well Arrow http://www.tarja-turunen.com/TWNforum/

Spoiler:
 

As I've already mentioned in some other places, I've got a backup of the forum database from March 10. It's a SQL file that's 1.2 GByte big, but it's quite neat as it's uncompressed and in plain text, which means it's human readable and most importantly, searchable. So even in this form, it's useful as an archive, to an extent, and some of you might want to download a copy. I've also made a RAR archive that's only 75 MByte and which I'd recommend instead of the uncompressed version if you can expand RAR files on your system. I've uploaded both files to Dropbox. I've already sent Jana the Dropbox links for both files. But I'll repost them here:

Thanks, Almagest!

Who knows, maybe we'll get a new and shiny super duper official forum now. Razz

I don't care if the new forum looks great, as long as it's safe!

That said, I really liked the simple, rather austere, but classy look of the Tarja forum. I also happen to have a thing for black backgrounds, if only for the nostalgia computing factor ... hehe. I'm happy with the look of this forum, too, but the functionality of the Tarja forum and its collection of smileys has always been my favourite ...

Hear, hear! Looking at my post now, it does seem badly worded. I actually had the upgrade we once discussed on the OF in mind - one that would prevent spambot infestation and enable users to register without any problems. As far as design goes, minimalism is just fine.

The look of this forum kind of reminds me of Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption. Smile

Thanks for the download Almagest! Downloading it, just because it's got valuable links and interviews and translations that I'd be too sad to lose.
