Look, I was/am as pissed off as anyone, BUT I BELIEVE IN REDEMPTION. Bored brilliant kids can get themselves in all sorts of trouble without really THINKING ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

Ultimately, this board "belongs" to Polverone, and I for one think that he has arrived at a wise decision and it is HIS to make. This could very well be a turning point in that young man's (Manifests) life and I support trying to make it a turn for the better.

I am sure Polv and Woelen have/will make extra backups.

You're right arkoma. While I personally have lost all trust in forgotpassword/Manifest, completely banning him is not my decision, though it remains my advice.

Polverone, if you do go forward with your plan for forgotpassword/Manifest, please check his fix carefully.

Forgotpassword/Manifest, please stop being a script kiddie, stop under estimating us, and stop fucking up other peoples day because you're bored.

I'm so sorry..... :( Didn't mean to falsely accuse you! You just seemed a bit harsh. Sorry...


I don't think we should ban him, but his new design should (if he ever makes it) be held up for checking for three mo. He should certainly comment all his changes for 'why' he made the change.

Good work Polverone for keeping the order. Most computer stuff goes over my head but I was not really impressed at this attack on basically innocent bystanders.

Since the attack, I can't post to the site from my tablet. It could be something on my end, but there it is. I finally moved over to a regular PC to see if I had the same problem, and here I am posting away. On my tablet, the site seems fine, but when I try to post, I can't move the screen focus into the dialog box. There is also, something I had never noticed and that is a little dialog information box in the lower left corner. It shows page information and ends with the text about "typesetting math". On my PC that box eventually goes away, on tablet it stays, and the screen locks. I have cleared cache and all of that. Like I said, it could very well be something on my end. Messaging works fine.

"Typesetting math" is the LaTeX system attempting to render any math text (such as the one in my mood.) What kind of tablet are you using? I use my (Android) phone sometimes when I post, and I do have issues with the text box not coming into focus.

Found this thread today. I probably should check other forum parts more regularly.
Anyway, a guy commented on one of my videos saying he wasn't able to register. Is that function blocked?
And are there still frozen members? I know DubaiAmateurRocketry still hasn't answered my U2U sent 11-8-2014; his last is from 10-8-2014. I can likely get his email address by contacting through Youtube or G+.

His account was hacked, and he hasn't logged on since the attack so I would assume his account is still locked. I would get his e-mail and send it to either Polverone or woelen.

Yep, I just have to confirm that the email I think he has is indeed correct. I'll send it to an admin as soon as I know.

No, apparently there have been problems with registering for a while.
For instance, I wanted another account, but was enable to register one for some reason.
Also, a member from another forum (that I was messaging) tried to register (I suggested him to) and he was unable as well.
I contacted Polverone, asking if we had done something wrong. He said:
Quote:

No, he didn't do anything wrong, it's just that a lot of mail providers still block all of our outgoing mail as spam since spammers temporarily took over our mail server last year. He will have to wait until the 24 hours are up, then tell him to register using a free account from mailinator.com and switch his password and email address after he's able to log in for the first time. Don't worry, mailinator doesn't require registration.

The member did the above, and it worked, so you could tell the guy who commented on your video that.

Yes. For general chemistry short questions, use the Short questions thread, for short Energetic materials questions, use The EM short questions thread, for any longer question that you feel deserves it's own thread, create a new thread in any of forums and sub-forums here.
Post in beginnings unless you can provide references.

Hmm, I disabled Java scripts on my Android tablet and everything is fine. Enable Javascripts causes things to lock up tight. Not just dialog box, full lock.

DrAldehyde, it sounds like your Android tablet does not get along well with the Javascript MathJax library for rendering mathematical notation. I installed it a while ago and it also caused problems for member IrC, though he was running Windows 2000 and not Android. If you block the script loading from cdn.mathjax.org in your browser, perhaps with an extension (does Android Chrome have those?), you shouldn't experience the problem.

That's weird. I can get the LaTeX to work fine on my Android phone. What version are you using?

Interesting... My old nokia N800 worked a while ago, is there any new scripts that were installed recently?

AFAIK just the MathJax scripts and the openmolecules.org system.

I'm using Android 4.4.2 on a Samsung Galaxy. I have been using it for a couple of months, I'll search back and see when I last posted without a problem. Until my post mentioning the issue, I have never had a problem. Like I said, disabling Javascript for the site is a work around. I'll see if it works on my phone and will try it on my wifes iPad. Brain&Force, I do notice the equation in your mood, doesn't display properly when I can post, and displays properly when I can't.
