Tips on preserving your own forum contributions

Recommended Posts

Have to admit it does all sound a bit like " oh you got deleted well make your own facebook loser " 

 

But thats not the intention 

 

As much as I dont want to say it I personally think the cabal have created their dissident check list and will now proceed to delete and banish as much as they can from the digital realm.while they can 

 

Its almost like that.moment a toddler realizes they have been caught with the candy so they start shoving it in their mouth as fast as they can 

 

The cabal.know they are implementing a system that people would not agree to if they were informed of the desired results

 

So.they have chosen to delete the opposition to it all seeing as they.would never be able to convince people to accept their vision

And how to mitigate that 

 

People have made noise about loss of their personal posts and data 

 

So some of us suggested forum users should back up their own data 

 

Grumpy is expanding on that in this thread 

Aha, sorry, I get it.

That doesn't sound right Denny .... 

 

We had a quality Karl Mollison thread here ... This forum is constantly getting new visitors , many could have been led to his work through this thread ...

 

I still hold out hope it will be reinstated .. The last message from Gareth suggested it could be.

I struggled to cut and paste large amounts of text in one go from an external source, but a few number of paragraphs were accepted. Could it be something to do with paragraph breaks or formatting? 

 

Even before the current problems with posting, I could only cut and paste if I performed the action twice, strangely.

I just checked through this thread and no one has mentioned this; http://archive.vn/

 

 

archive.today is a means of being able to cache a lot of material & info , independent of your PC or device.

 

Unless this has a weakness to it. Would welcome feedback on archive.today and its usefulness.

"Quality Karl Mollison threads" (this should and needs to be qualified as channelings of Light Beings and/or channelings of Creator) are thankfully easy to come by and easy to repeat. If it is that important (and it is IMO) then we probably don't have to wait long for another one.

Then, there's the way back machine .  You can browse through there for our/your former forum posts and when you want to make sure a post or thread is saved you can go straight to the waybackmachine and use/click on save page now.

 

There are also free board hosting sites which you can set up.  I have one that I use to prep posts (often) and then port them over.

 

Edit - Check it out, coronavirus mega thread and JULY 2019 Jeffrey Epstein arrested

 

You won't find them all or be able to open every page but you may find a lot.

 

Environment & Climate was not backed up, but I do have back up content of a thread I started What the Hopi believe is responsible for these Earth changes.

added two example archived threads (first pages of didn't check further)

I've done some of this. But two pages of one of my threads does not exist ..at all.. any more. In any cache. They are being deleted. 

 

Unless I'm a complete idiot. Which is also a possibility. 

 

Also. Hundredth monkey etc  I don't need to reinstate that particular thread. Enough people had read it.

again, I agree mate.

 

this realm is not what it was nor is it as it was meant to be!

 

so .... I will post a link to my online forum .... which will be gone soon anyway .... but I am interested to see what happens :)

 

as said .... i began with that forum but comprehended that online could always be removed so changed to offline .... it is well over a month since I updated anything there .... I show it for a number of reasons ....

 

that it is easy to do

 

that YOU can do it

 

It is not a lot of money .... nothing to £50 per year (all depends on bandwidth but if it is just you and a few then 50 cover's it a piece of piss)

 

Copy it offline onto another device and it will NEVER be lost!

 

big one for me is to see what happens to it? Although that isn't entirety correct lol

 

I have permanently deleted anyone who did know about it .... everything is gone 

 

I have opened it up .... as it doesn't matter anymore and it very limited in the information it holds ....

 

Tried to copy yesterday but I am limited in skills. Will read today and absorb          ( They can't delete that. Well they can. But that's up to them) . 

 

Will try and copy the more salient parts...lest they be forgotten in all the other bullshit. X

Correct, I'm not saying anyone should set up a 'rival' website, as I'm sure once things are back up and running then the David Icke Social will continue to be a valuable resource which members can make valuable contributions to.

 

But understand that this forum will be watched and no doubt targeted again in future. I'm just saying that those members who compile and provide detailed research and other material should make sure that they keep their own backup copies elsewhere, "just in case".

 

And going back to what I said earlier about 'Youtubers", I forget who it was exactly now, but I remember watching some video before where they were talking about a fellow 'content creator' who was whining at Youtube because they had deleted their channel and their 'hours of content' which had been uploaded over several years was all gone and lost.

 

The phrase I use again is "don't put all your eggs in one basket", always keep your own offline copies of anything you upload to the internet, thats the only way to ever preserve them.

To me now .... nothing on that site I need to have any worry about.

Copy it if you wish and that is great as then you will have the information to pass on.

As I said .... I considered that any information can be removed from the internet and so stopped putting it online and created that forum on a 'localhost' server .... which does not need to be connected to the internet to function!

 

I tried to put a 'localhost' onto usb keys but that became very problematic once you consider different operating systems .... so I put my forum on to a key with 200ish videos, every image from the information and full site screen shots of 'linked' information.

 

The only thing that those who have the keys need to know (which can be copied) is how to setup a 'localhost' .... and that is a piece of piddle :)

 

Once done .... no internet required and the information continues :)

 

The FL stuff on that 'forum' .... well I have a good idea of what they are and what they think or show .... I will make a post on your thread about the future.

While I do hope that all previous David Icke Social forum content will be restored, I would also hope that some of the valuable forum contributors are not 'putting all their eggs in one basket' by not keeping their own 'backup' of their material that they post here.

 

(Now I don't want to be seen as 'favouring' any particular forum members; of course most of us all make valuable contributions in our own way)

 

If you already keep copies of your research and forum posts, then that's great, and you probably need read no further, unless you want to add any suggestions or anything else I may have missed.

 

The easiest thing to do for starters, is to copy your forum post into a Word document (or some other word-processing software of your choice!), and save it as a local file on your own computer. As a backup to that, perhaps have a USB stick or external hard disk handy that you can save and store your files and data on.

 

(If you don't have Microsoft Word or Office, a good free alternative is the open-source LibreOffice, which is itself a fork from the original open-source OpenOffice)

 

If you want to keep 'online' copies of your forum material, you may wish to consider using some 'blogging' software and start your own blog to post your material and musings in.

 

There are 'free' platforms where you can do this, such as Blogspot or WordPress.com, just sign up and pick a blog name, then start saving your forum posts and material in new 'blog' articles.

 

This way at least, you can share your musings and research with others elsewhere.

 

One downside I can see to this though, is that because you are using that platform's cloud services, you are subject to their terms and conditions, so if you're really unlucky and attract a lot of unwanted attention (or you actually are posting material that would be breaching terms & conditions), you could end up getting your account suspended and your material lost forever. Hope you kept that USB stick handy!

 

If you're really serious about this, and have a bit of money to spare, you could always buy yourself a domain name and sign up with a webhosting provider; it doesn't have to be expensive, there are lots of webhosting providers offering cheap no-frills hosting packages if you just want to set up a blog or archive.

 

You can of course then install Wordpress for free on your own website, and with a bit of customising and tweaking, you have your own personal website where you can blog and post to your heart's content. There are other platforms that you could install, but I'd say that Wordpress is very easy to use, and I've used it on numerous websites myself that I've set up, either for myself or for other people.

 

Most webhost providers will provide basic backup facilities, so you can either store backups in your hosting account, or download them as a zip file, which can then be easily restored if needed, or transferred to a new webhosting account if you decide to change provider.

 

I did this myself a couple of years back, fed up with internet censorship, I created an 'online persona' and bought a domain name, then using some webhosting I already had, set up my own website. I don't publicise it, or aim to make any money from it, but I found it quite therapeutic to start writing about stuff, making observations on current happenings. I don't really care if no-one else reads it, but I know for a fact that what I write is being 'stored for posterity', and I can refer back to it whenever I need to. Some older stuff I wrote I look back at and feel a bit embarrassed at first, but I don't care. Then again, I do read some stuff back and feel totally vindicated.

 

So by all means, I'm not saying that people should abandon this forum, and start their own blogs or websites, the two can go hand in hand.

 

If you have researched and compiled valuable information into forum posts here, just please ensure that you present this material elsewhere, or keep offline copies, or both!

 

Because you never know when the shit is going to hit the fan again, and if your material is only stored in one place, it's going to be lost, potentially forever.

 

TPTB are clearly working to try and 'centralise' the Internet, in order to 'control the flow' of information. We must actually do what we can to 'decentralise' this information, and keep it in as many places as possible.

 

 

 

 

Thank you very much for this info!

Wot the man said .

 

And the reason or one of the reasons is that a forum going for 20 years will

have a fantastic back catalogue which can prove the "groundhog day" theory i.e.

scares and outlandish claims from TPTB run in cycles . Hence a huge effort it

seems to crash forums such as this and to destroy it's history base .

Anyone else noticed partial loss of private messages just one or two 'frames' of the conversation gone?

 

Also yesterday when I logged in the time frames were all out .Perhaps two or three hours. Quickly corrected like a glitch. Happened at least twice.

It's flashing back to a time before this grumpy owl thread was pinned. And I think Mr a had responded to inks off topic stuff making that the top newest post. So sunday sometime ? Tell me I'm not going completely mad ? It lasts seconds.

I know this may be slightly off topic, but is anyone else unable to "start a new topic"?

Three times in the last five days or so I've attempted to start new topics, only to be told "you have been blocked".

They were on three completely different subjects so I know it's not the content.

I've tried typing in directly, pasting from a word document, and pasting from an open office document, all with the same result.

I've tried by logging on through google, google chrome and yahoo, again all with the same result.

I know there's issues at the moment and basically has been since the attack took place, but other posters seem to have had no problem creating new topics in the 5 day period I'm referring to.

Obviously I can't start a new topic about being unable to "start a new topic"  he he, so that's why I'm posting here in the hope that somebody knows what's going on and could maybe offer a solution? Thanks

Oh BTW, the result is a "You have been blocked" message...

Edit: After re-reading my previous post I realise I've just had a Groundhog Day moment and repeated myself...opps!

You need to start the thread with plain text ie just a bit of writing from the keyboard. Once that starts the thread you can then add in some pictures or links etc. It's still haphazard but we all know why. 

 

My concern was whether it was still being hacked or mirrored but I'm sure the team are onto that and have done as grumpy suggests and saved what I don't want to lose.

 

Btw @Grumpy Owl if it keeps looking like I look at your profile that's because my finger hits your name instead of the thread when I access from my phone :-)

Nope, wrote two lines on the keyboard and got "Sorry, you have been blocked" when I attempted to post

I had my doubts because none of the new topics I've attempted to post had pictures or links in them, all were just plain text.

I'd love to know what's going on because it's not a blanket ban on new posts, looking at the site some people are starting up new topics with ease apparently?

I can comment on established threads obviously cause I'm here, but I have not been able to start a new topic for around 5 days now.

hiya there was a flag that it might be to do with age of accounts. some of the older accounts can still post.  drop a couple of lines here and tell me what you want to post as it has let me and I'll start it for you? Don't want to ask you to PM as there are still some issues with that.

Hi, that'd be cool if you could thanks:classic_smile:

 

I was thinking of the title as "Practical Tips and Suggestions for Survival"

 

And the first few lines as:

Given the fact that most peoples world has been turned upside down in a matter of months and that we don't know what's coming down the pipeline (we might think we do but we might also be wrong?), I thought it might be beneficial to start a thread with practical tips or suggestions so we could hopefully be a little bit prepared.
