My best guess is that it is a hack-misdirect from the old website, created for the purpose of Phishing and that "Our" SC would does not approve of and also has NOTHING to do with THIS website.

 

I strongly reccomend that No poster give ANY new personal Info to this website, including your email address until we get this sorted out.

 

Until I get good confirmation from "our" SC that this is legit, I am going to treat this site as a haccked, faked site.  Reccomend you do the same.

Great thought WD, never thought that could have happened, but that does make sense now.

It is very scary how they have uploaded ALL of the previous posts and you can now just click on someone's name and pull up everythign they ever posted to anyone. Just scary and very unsetteling.

It looks like much of the transfer happened between Sept 26-Sept 28, 2010 on all the old accounts. At least when you click on a name from someone who has been posting for a while, it says they joined within those dates and not when they actually joined. So I suspect they have been tampering with this site for a while.

Although do you remember when we stopped needing donations? Maybe this isn't a hack and it is related to that. Z says that he has been in communication with the people designing this website and is trying to help them get it right.

As far as I'm concerned I'm not going to link my email to my old username at all. This is way too much a breach of confidence on the previous rules of the site.

I think our best bet is that someone gives this program a virus and destroys the old information. I have a bad feeling about what they are going to do with all of our secrets and use them against us in very harmful ways.

I do agree that if this is no longer anonymous, they should erase all of our other posts.   At this level, I dont feel free to write things that are very personal to me.  I use to use this as a journal of my life and my feelings.

I'm not feeling too sure about this either.  I have remained a guest because I'm not too up with technology and I haven't sorted out what remains personal information.  It looks like they are trying to push counseling services and such.

Is there actually a change in anonmity?

 

I don't have a prob with someone being able to search my posts, but I certainly don't want my email visible to other posters.

your email is only visible if YOU POST IT, read the techincal support thread, the administrater talked about that today actually. same goes for facebook and instant messaging accounts, only available to the public if you post it.

hi all...

i am a member but not 'signed in'... if the site has in fact moderators.. why do they allow cursing.. suchas the 'GD' word and another post had the 'f' word like at least 4 x in it.. should that kindof language b allowed on here either?

Perhaps it's anonymous, only if you choose to be anonymous? I haven't read the "guidelines and rules" of this particular site as it stands now, however, in the past, many posters wanted that rule lifted. Many people wanted to have more freedom to  interact with each other outside the walls of the discussion boards. Personally, I think the change is a great thing. In the past, one never knew what one would get for feedback, and as you guys well know, a lot of the feedback was negative, and downright abusive. Hence, many of the long time posters simply quit posting. The past couple of years, this site has been a nightmare for people looking for support- and the Libs side was an anything goes type of atmosphere.. often times very hostile. What was once a good thing, ultimately turned very sour.

I'm surprised at you Guest and Worried Dad- both of you seemed to be on the shit end of the stick around here more often than not, no?

this site is anonymos as much as you want it to be, you dont have to post any information you dont want, have any of you posted any information? have they asked you since then to post it or they will deny you to log in? no. exactly my point, ihave posted my real name and city, thats as far as i will take it for now, but look people, swat team hasnt broken into my house, no one has stolen my credit cards, and i havent been spammed in my email ,and neither have any of you. the "moderation" is for stuff like people insulting other members, there is still freedom of speech, look FUCK! see, i did not get people busting down my door, you can post whatever you want, as long as it is respectful, and they do moderate each reply, not sure how, but they do, the site administrater said something like that in one of my emails or i think its on the wall in "technical support" i think they just are moderating to make sure no noe death threatens someone or posts violent information or something

Yes, I totally agree with what you said. I do not feel the least bit compromised here at all. In fact, I feel much safer- the old AAC was a free for all- no moderation- no accountability- nothing. It's what you decide to share, it's not required to be out there for the world to see. And I googled myself every which way possible and the only things I found were a matter of public record like newspaper articles and such.. not one thing that would remotely lead anyone here.

I think I have it figured out.  You don't have a frist and last name listed on your profile Isis.  I did.  If this was my real name, and somebody googled it, then they would be led here.

 

google

btw, I feel much safer here too! I'm much more concerned about being attacked than being "found" or whatever.

wow andii i have no idea how you found yourself here on google, i did google my name, like 3000 other chris's came out, not even my facebook page was the first one, i went through like ten pages of search results and found nothing related to me, apparently my name is pretty popular. and waht do you mean your afraid of being "attacked" like a virus or something? i just did a standard virus scan on my computer that was scuduled for today, nothin. we really do have nothing to worry about people, if you dont want to share you dont have to, i think someone soon will post everything, and once we see that person isnt abducted in the middle of the night by the CIA we will all calm down, the only reason why i havent done it is because many people in my real life dont knw i am depressed and suicidal, they may know i come from a viollent background but they have no idea how much it scrws with my head, i dont like attention or anything so i keep it secret, but hey i need hlp to get throught the bad days, thanks for that everyone and AAC staff!

By attacked I mean by other posters.  At the old site some posters were really nasty.

 

Z, I want to edit the posts.  How do I do that?

i remember reading somewhere that we can edit posts that were already posted, as long as they posts WE posted, you cant edit some one elses post.  hhmmmm i dont see how though, andii go to the technical support thread and post the question, the administrater or adminstraterS (not sure if its more than one) tend to answer the questions pretty soon, its actualy cool because you can see when they themsleves are logged on. you can even email them ,adnt ehy respond and it not an auto repsonse, they are very friendly and they answered me pretty quickly

Thank you z!  I'm a litle upset and scanned over your last post quickly- you are to friggin funnYLaugh  abducted in the middle of the night!Laugh

 

Z, I'm glad you found this site and it's working for you, you're so good to everybody here.  No suicide z- the world is a better place with you in it.  I mean that!

 

I'm afraid I've added to the paranoia.  I'm sorry.  I want to go get rid of the posts before people see it all but I don't know how and I'm really frustrated at this point and tired right now.  I gotta get to bed so I give upFrown

lol i feel like your wagging a finger at me "no suicide!" and i am just looking downwards with a guilty face "ok"

 

got take a nap andii, a nap on a saturday always leaves everyone feeling good. i am only good to everyone here because they are soo good to me.

 

and dont worry, paranoid people dont need you to be paranoid, they manage that all by themselves, even if you cant delete your posts they will find a reason why to worry, the only thing we can do is try to talk some sense into them, i think the best way to do that is by making them laugh and realize how silly they are being,

 

thanks for the vote of confidence, means alot lol

more than anyone here can know

lol stop with the positive reinforcement, you might rid me of my depression and then i would have no reason why to come back!

 

thanks curious, to be honest the change caught me off guard too, but i said to myself how the hell am i going to speak to my friends in AAC otherwise, so i sat down and tried to figure it out, and just posted a thread sharing what i found out hopefully to make it easier for anyone else, not to mention i didnt want new members who need support to see the site and get scared and leave, now you can post as a guest! thats even more anonymouse than anything we have ever had before.

i have been through some changes in my life, like i am sure everyone else on here has, if we survived that crap, a new layout for a website should be nothing to us. seriously people who are worried, think about everything you have been through, a new layout on a website is what unnerves you now? everyone here is stronger than that. in my opinion, i have seen so much crap, a rhino can burst into my house right now and i would say to myself "i should have seen that coming" dont let a fancy new lay out bother you people, you are all better than that,

 

and again thanks curious, and you too andii. you people give me the confidence to want to give other people confidence thanks again

No problem Z.   If your depression disappears then you have to stick around to encourage the rest of us. Laugh  Goodness knows we can use someone like you to make us smile.   I hope others follow your positive attitude about the new site and give it a try.  I'm getting a little better with it and like some of the creative options.   Getting ready for bed now.   Hope you have a super wonderful Monday.  Keep learning about this place and share with us slow learners  Wink.  good night
