    Hey,
    I am a kind of confused..
    which forum is the real now?
    On this one the "RPF" button is blurred / warped, but this one is telling me to be real..
    the other forum looks normal, but there are not so many people online as in this one..
    What did actually happen?

    For some of us fairly new members, its not possible to access the OT forum. Not sure the 20 posts rule is a good idea, especially in this situation!

    I am curious if this hacking is the reason I'm not able to access the junkyard. I click on that forum and it gives me the main page.
    Cheers!

    Rest ashured that this is the real sight. the Original url was hacked and stolen by people in Russia. I have already been banned over there. The reason being I posted, In russian, that all hackers must die. I also posted right out in the open that The site was a fake.

    the post was deleted and I was banned. Now, you have posted a question, asking which site is real.

    This ine,m since it still give you the right to question which site is real without banning you.

    Another point in this site's favor, The other forums have already dumped and reloaded the site from a stolen saved point in orider to delete the all the hack posts.

    This is the real site, relax and enjoy

    and in simpler terms, the other site (therpf.com) was illegally acquired, or kidnapped so to speak, by Russian hackers in an attempt to sell it back to Art and the staff for money.

    This IS the real site. Rest Assured, some of us are a little irrate over it all, so we don't mean to be so grumpy, just happens when you've frequented this board for as many years as some of us. It becomes almost a digital home. So try not to take the comments to heart vossart, we still love ya buddy ;)

    I did Marry a Belarussian, but I'm not a double agent. Just proud to have angered the hackers to gain my banning. And when they supposedly lift the ban on the 13th, I'll do it all again.

    I went there and removed all my details and changed stuff, so after that, I do not go there. Not going to promote traffic to the site

    Tim, your hot link was probably to the-rpf.com, which is what you get when you go to that url. It use to route to therpf.com.

    Re: which one is the fake forum?

    Fairly new or fairly casual? You have had over seven months to amass 20 posts and still not managed it - it does suggest a relatively low level of enthusiasm, to be blunt. The staff cannot cater to absolutely everything; I'd defend the 20 posts rule. We get far more spamming and scamming than outright hacking. I think some measures are unashamedly designed to protect existing members, and that that is fair enough.

    It is, but as suggested, clear your cache and you should be OK.

    Waste of time, and a risk. They have a backup copy of the database as it was at 27 December. They've already restored it at least once so your PMs and details and whatever will be back online.

    Thats staggering. Im haveing trouble processing the far reaching implacations of that.
    What are our options now in terms of identity theft etc? Apologies but the OT thread is far to overwhelming now to find specific answers.

    Don't get too freaked out just yet.
    I don't think anyone was PM'ing credit card information.
    Sure there will be phone numbers and adresses and emails, but really that is already out there for anyone to get. I"d be surprised if anything really bad occurs because of this to members unless they shared sensitive information. Few would have done that if any.

    To point out another difference, this site's copyright is to Movie Prop Sites LLC while the ****ty owners of the new site have a different copyright at the bottom. I'd tell you what it was but I got banned there for posting warning threads :lol

    I really hope we don't become the victims of identity theft. :(

    Re: which one is the fake forum?

    As i said before. staggering. To think every PM i have sent and recieved is in the hands of an organised group of obviously professional thieves is unreal.
    I would never assume that people dont include sensitive information in some of thier PM`s as its very nature implies it. Only concerned about * coveribg here, as a member its all i can be concerned with. Unfortunately, it only takes a few bits of personal information to exploit someones identity.

    Thanks for an official responce Montagar.

    I agree that it is unlikesly that anyones direct accounts etc are under threat
    but i would suggest that members check their respective credit reports in the near future as false accounts, loans etc can easily be set up and bite you on the backside sometime in the future with the minimum of background information. Some countries arent all that diligent. take from it what you want.

    Re: which one is the fake forum?

    I've noticed I've gotten a couple of porn spammer friend requests on MSN the past couple of days, and my MSN info was in my profile. Any relation, or just coincidence? I occasionally get these requests anyway, but the timing got me wondering if anyone else has had a similar increase in activity there.
    Hopefully that's about the extent of what they could do with my info anyway. I don't use the same password on any forums that I do for my more secure accounts such as email, PayPal, banking etc, and I don't have any sensitive info on this forum.

    So when are we getting therprf.com back? I liked to put it on my CoAs that I made. I'm sure others have put it on plaques, shirts etc too.
