Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

@Guenther, you have a nice crawler over there! I have one friend who can investigate options of putting at least programming part of the forum somewhere, so stay in touch.

Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

Then find a programmatic solution that creates two forums, active and passive, from one database. Should be one database reference plus commenting out some scripts. The problem is not that there is no solution, but that nobody is trying to solve anything. Also, ask some real admins about Docker, com...

What is your proposed solution?
Mirror of a forum, but with edition, logging in and any possibility of changing from outside disabled. Preferably left under the current address, so that links at external sites stay in place, with editable forum at a new address.

Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

IIRC the correct term for what is happening here is "public domain hijacking". Information on this forum was freely accessible, now it is not.

Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

The VPN solution has been proposed for people in this situation. This does not solve the problem. Unrestricted read-only access to the forum would. Talkchess has been created on the assumption that everybody can read stuff posted here. Chessprogramming Wiki acted on this assumption and now is screw...

But even less I would simply let the data stored here go without even trying to save them in one way or the other.
I agree. But Talkchess is no longer a place where you can reliably store and retrieve information.

If members from here simply join another one forum to meet there instead of here, all the threads, postings, data would get lost
This content is already lost for the people that are blocked.

Re: *** General user warnings ***

Well, I am not the admin here, so you are barking up the wrong tree. In case this has been directed at me: today you have called this situation "shameful". This is good, but I wish this has been said earlier and louder. As for the server (again, the adresee of Your words is unclear), I wrote about ...

the blocking of Poland still persists. This is indeed a shameful situation
Thank You for acknowledging this. In a perfect world this would have been said much earlier, and without me speaking up - yet I am grateful for this words, and expect the moderation team to act on them.

Re: *** General user warnings ***

I believe that chess / computer chess is the one thing that unites us all on this forum I am not "united". I am blocked. What's even worse, content that I meant to be openly available, usable and quotable, is blocked for others too. And I feel I trusted this forum too much, because I did not create...
