I was only joking about the mimesis. But if it becomes overwhelming I will genuinely withdraw from the Forum for a while.

Until the next crash, perhaps. Seems so.

I'm still a little confused about what happened.

Did the hacker take over .com and fix everything, or was the "hacker" actually admin all along?

Admin appears to be in absentia, so I suspect the hacker fixed it. One of the locals here, scoobydoo, has posted some thoughts on the matter around here somewhere. Scoobydoo does seem to know about these things. It seems the hacker was trying a common formula hack and accidentally screwed the forum up. I suspect he came back and fixed it out of shame.

As far as some new members, I suspect a couple will hang around a bit.

You would think if it was admin that repaired it, he would have changed his username back to "admin"...instead of leaving it as the hacker's name. But a hacker fixing a forum he borked seems unlikely too. I'm perplexed.

It seems likely the admin account is a group account for the "company" that owns tsf.com and they rarely if at all pay attention to what is happening. Its quite possible they haven't even noticed.

:( It looks to me as if the forums are all in a little trouble.. If the numbers I see are correct, I am the only one here. ( is that right )
0 members, 0 guests.. I do not believe that. ( or do not want to )
The Sister site must be doomed to fail as the join function seems stuffed.. is stuffed. The .com forum does still have more people on line and more guests..
Yet there is very little contributions being made.. So I ask the obvious. Where is everyone ? :?

Travelling abroad at the moment - Bosnia to be specific.

There are fewer lurkers here compared to the .com site, this much is true. Since I do not have a constant WiFi connection, TSF does not reflect my logon status once I lock my smartphone's touch screen. I'm usually not too bothered by the member & guest count since I am aware that not many people keep the forum page on a constantly opened browser tab even while their desktop computer is switched on.

This site automatically logs folks off, seemingly in fairly short time (don't know what it really is). Between that and no chat box, it gives the impression there's few folks actually online or watching. Unfortunately, the low post counts reinforce that notion.

sorry, but as long as the weather is summer-ish and the days long-ish, I'm off making the most of it, and often not online for long stretches on end

I have been inactive for a few years. I now have more time on my hands, and will endeavour to post stuff that will cause endless debate.
