???the other site.....

  1. I have been a member of this forum for some time but have not been too active in actually doing a lot of smoking and posting Q-view. I am also a member of the other site as are many others here, with a similar name. If someone could tell me what happened to the "other site" it would be greatly appreciated. I enjoy reading and sometimes participating in both forums. All I get when trying to connect is "THIS ACCOUNT HAS BEEN SUSPENDED" notice.

    I believe it had something to do with paypal and fraudulant bulletins that folks were getting in their emails. I didn't get one, but many did. I'm sure things will return to normal, just like they did here, it just takes patience.

    Here is a copy of an email that was sent to me.

    [font=arial,helvetica]The email hack has caused the server owners to suspend the account. I just talked to Ken and made him aware- he said he figgered it might happen. He's working on it... at work of course. He asks for some patience- and figgers he might actually have to do the "security update" that killed the place last time too... Oh Joy. Anyway...our apologies and it will be back ASAP! Thanks folks-[/font]

    This message is what you get when the hosting company for your site suspends your acct for one reason or another. It can be caused by security issues, fraud, non-payment etc. I believe that the last message said its was because of a security issue.

    Patience is a hard thing to come by at times but speaking from experience I know the admins will appreciate it.

    I had trouble with PayPal on a cyber world. Had to leave them as they insisted on only paypal payments. They have since changed there stand on this but I personally won't use them.
