Problems with TFW2005.com

Postby Turtleman747 » Sun Oct 28, 2012 12:57 am

Motto: "Just doing what I can with what I got"
Hello I'm new ya whatever
I just came over form TFW2005 I'm experiencing problems there form web pages not loading to IP blocks as well ongoing Mail-ware threats ect.

why is it that one of the largest TF domains has so many problems, they don't seem to take down their site for a couple of hours to fix it. I guess that I'm just getting really frustrated and discouraged over there.

I hope to have a better experience here.

so is there any one that was on TFW2005 or still is? maybe find out whats going on

TFW appears to be having some problems with a hacker/virus that's exploiting some code in their forums. I suspect that's why we're seeing constant up/down time with them at the moment is they're trying to get rid of it without resorting to the actual solution which would be to do a full upgrade of their forum system, which will take a lot of time to do properly.

Or maybe that's what they're doing with the up/downtime is prepping the system for a quick upgrade?

I used to be on TFW as well! but defected to this site after finding too many backstabbers & arseholes on that site! + found the same with TransmastersUK(TMUKHUB) + they both have My Little Pony on there! which I detest.

I can only hope that this site fares better :D

While fighting back is commendable, I don't think mudslinging is. Is there are a rule against "negative advertising" towards rival sites?
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Rule or not, do you really want to be advertising that you were banned from another site? That kinda puts a big "Oh hey Mods, please watch me!" over your head.

Sorry about the ban.
And stalk is a better word in my opinion, but I see where you go.

Welcome.

Anyone remember the big ole flamewar with TFW back in the olden days?

I think it started a bit like this...

Anyway, I've always found Seibertron.com considerably better, and the layout, in each of its forms, has always been eaiser on the eyes.
Something memorable here.
