Thread: Let's Save TWT

    Information Let's Save TWT

    I will miss you. You have been a great place to talk about wrestling, but the further we get from Jacob's tragic passing, the worse the health of this site shows to be.

    A dedicated following has looked elsewhere to talk wrestling I'm afraid. When you don't know whether the site will be up from a day to day basis makes it extremely difficult to maintain consistent dialogue and conversation that made TWT a great place to converse, debate, and share.

    You were the place I cut my teeth as it were and where I learned TONS about the sport from the MANY knowledgeable posters over here.

    Thanks for the memories TWT,

    Christian Pyles-

    Graff beats Sentes and Long beats Grey and Graff which make s me puke.

    141 Marion got screweed. Rusell posted and Marion shouldleve been awarded a takedown but was not. Ambrose raises his ugly head. I like Novochkov. Marion has the easy road to third with shavrien but will hav to beat either kennedy or thron orf thidr. I love montell..

    So is this the official shut down? Where the hell has Jensens been? This site is a rudderless ghost ship.

    Where is everyone going to go now? I have been over at Themat for a bit but haven't posted yet. What recommendations do you fine folks have?

    Site ain't getting shut down. I do sympathize with you guys, in the middle of a fantasy draft and the site gets hacked like it has been many times before.

    I don't know where the hell Shane is, but actually Shane's account was the one getting hacked so we had to change his password lol. If he wants to get in he can do the "forgot password" thing but his password was probably really basic and in turn allowed hackers to get in easily (and since he was one of the admin level accounts, that's not a good thing).

    Ty and I have been trying to keep the site up in our spare time, mind you we're not really getting paid for the time we put in to keep this up so it's hard to make it happen when we all have lives, paid work, etc. But out of respect for Kristen and Jacob, who we have been friends and business partners with since the early 2000's, we made the sacrifices through the last week to try to get it back up. We had to repair a 5+ gigabyte database...this site is effin huge.

    Anyway, sorry for the downtime, I don't blame you guys for how you feel or what you do. But bottom line, this site is going to be up, it's not going anywhere.

    I'm sorry to say this, but you guys have some serious gall posting this type of talk here.
    How disrespectful is it to use this forum to decide where people can go to find "greener pastures?"

    At the end of the day, who among you has offered up what's needed to help nurture and maintain this site?
    Instead you choose to jump ship and deprive it of the only thing you have offered, a chance at fresh, quality content.

    It's likely that none of the people complaining have any idea what it takes to run this site, or what those who have taken responsibility for it put up with on a daily basis.

    Thank you all for allowing me to spend inordinate amounts of my personal time working on this twisted heap of a site, so that you all can make assumptions and turn tail when things get tough.

    I sincerely hope you guys find what you're looking for out there.

    I don't understand what all this hacking is about. You would hack a wrestling website and why? None of it makes any sense to me.

    To run processes that link to their sites (that you can't see from the front-end of the website). Also people from other countries like to hack US sites just to fuck with them. We get lots of hacks from China where they try to run perl processes constantly. They do it for fun, for people like us to be annoyed, etc.

    One good thing was HostGator actually found that it was Shane's account getting hacked so he probably had a simple password that was easy to hack.

    Hoping it stays good going forward. Before that last week it had been up for a while undisturbed. Let's hope it can replicate that again. Again, this ain't our full time job but we'll do our best to keep it afloat with wrestling season starting. We also have to manage www.hswrestling.net, www.matfish.com , posting content / new items for both, keeping them upright (hswrestling.net also gets hacked like a bitch), among about 15 other schlottke websites (in addition to our own). But we do value this forum being up, trust me

    Ok ok, go easy. I thought that this thread was an actual truthful announcement that this site is getting shut down. This site has been my first pick for a while now for real, relatively troll-free discussion so obviously I don't want to see it go.

    And thanks for all the time you spend keeping this 'twisted heap of a site' going.
