Wonderwarthog may have left the building

I got an email from Wonderwarthog today asking me to pass onto the forum that he may be locked out of the site and will no longer be able to post here as a result.

He typically logs in at a local library and this latest time it did not work. So he clicked on the “forgot my password link” and he never received an email to reset his password. He maybe in password reset limbo.

Apparently the mods here are no longer accepting new accounts or replying to any inquiries from DI members as well, wonderwarthog found this out from another friend of his.

Hopefully this is not the case and just a glitch..time can only tell.

3. His account is still active...

...his access to the account is the problem. His password did not work for him the last time he tried to log in. He attempted the password reset function but never got a response.

I told him it may just have been a computer problem and to try again later. He just wanted to give a heads up to the group.

5. Well it appears to be the case.

The last new account was logged in Oct 2018. And there have been no new socks to speak of for some time now.

So this place will just kill itself off until there is no one else left.

11. actually, the last new REAL user was May 5, 2018. That one from a couple

months ago turned out to be just some spammer that registered LONG ago and never logged in until oct.
look at his posts...
they killed off the registration process too, you can sign up, but never get codes or anything.
skinner is letting it die on purpose for whatever reason. i guess lefty couldn't handle having to defend his lies and disinformation propaganda, he can only survive in an echo chamber of fools

27. I can confirm this.

I used a VPN and separate credentials from a different computer and could create an account, but the confirmation email was never delivered.

Frankly, I am getting to a point where it is becoming rather pointless to post here. Most of the leftists here have gone nutters with TDS and are now on ignore. The conservatives I could chat with elsewhere. There isn't much left here except the back and forth with idgits.

I have a site I have been developing. Maybe I will just pour time into it instead.

45. It's not any poster, it's the security on the site.

Every 30 days or so (I haven't gauged exactly how long) the site automatically logs everyone out. This requires the person to submit Username and Password to verify the account has not been compromised.

Normally I - and I suspect the vast majority of posters here - rely on the cookies in their browser cache to provide the PW. I suspect WW did as well and he did it for so long he forgot his PW.

Since he's posting form the library they probably reformatted their computers or cleared the browser caches, thus deleting his stored PW.

No malice from the nefarious Tier 1 required.

22. Better than FB. Here I can 'preview' post before posting, helps immensely.

Cut & Paste YouTube looks good.

I find FB countertuitive, slow & no 'preview' button is frustrating, as you end up just taking a 'shot' in the dark when posting.

Also we know about their 'algorythm' problem.

I sent him a bunch of really cool radio photos that I took while passing through SFO. Knew he’d like like them.

They had a huge grouping of displays of many different old....OLD radios.

16. He's in password reset limbo. Can take a few days +, 4 them to email you a password reset.

He needs a separate email account other than this platform.
I.E. ... gmail.com . Then a journal, etc, to write it down. I'm sure he already knows all this . . .

Barnes & Noble has a really good password diary that is heavy spiral and black leather cover. Ledger paper specifically designed for computer passwords. $5.00 .

Other than that it's all computers & consensus of the 'jury' members, IMHO.

“PS to answer DaMann, I own a p.c. and an android. (PC is a milspec Panasonic Toughbook.) I was at the library doing some other work on their computer, so figured I'd check out DI while there. Bad move! : ))) “

My bad about the assumption on the library comment.
