Some of us read the forum via rss feed, which doesn't show in your stats. It also eliminates waiting for DDoS attacks to subside.
That said, a large scale psyop #hrdpar should perk things up. I'm sure one is in the can.

Dear Ghostofpedro,

I'm having the same questions these days... Admittedly, I myself have not been as forum-active as usual lately, yet this can hardly explain the recent, sharp drop in forum activity (and of daily visitors). For instance, as I logged in today (as I've done practically every single day since Cluesforum's birth in 2009), there were no more than ....

...4 visitors! And similarly low numbers have been a trend in the last few weeks / months. I can pretty safely say that this is a quite unprecedented state of affairs. Now, I hate to sound "conspiratorial", -_- - but I must wonder whether perhaps something fishy is going on, although I'm stumped as to what sort of fish that would would be. However, in later weeks I have noticed a sharp rise in the frequency of (various sorts of) "access denied" moments, such as this one - which occured earlier this morning:

When such "denials of service" happen, I will just wait patiently for a while (sometimes several hours) until the forum returns online. To be sure, such downtimes have never occured as frequently in the past. Could this partially go to explain the recent drop in forum traffic? I don't know. Just saying...

I would of course appreciate hearing from other members whether they are experiencing similar (recurring) "denials of service" lately.

Simon,

For several weeks (maybe a couple of months)—I was seeing those extremely low numbers as well.

Yesterday I saw the visitor count around 43 (or so)—and I recall making a mental note that it was back to an ordinarily low(ish) number.

I’m pretty sure our visitor count could be monkeyed with—like strange YouTube view counts, etc. But, I can’t be sure.

Also, we could be logged in simultaneously—and see a different number. I’ll make a note to screenshot when I see extreme numbers.

Obviously CF is HEAVILY monitored and (practically) censored. I’m always up for ideas—provided I have the time. And that is something I’m lacking in recent days.

Normalcy (whatever that is) shall return again though.

When I click on the board index and then subject, General World Affairs for example, I get a page of topics and at the side of each topic there is a red circle with lines in, in some the lines are moving, in some they are still, what does this denote?

Same here, kickstones. I thought those circles/lines appeared only when I logged in, but have recently noticed them there when I'm just viewing.

I have had a few instances where the page hasn't loaded and I was told I didn't have permission. Nothing like that has happened recently, though.

ABOUT FORUM TRAFFIC STATS ...

This is absolutely hilarious... get this, dear readers:

So yesterday my mind dwelled back to the early days of my first version of September Clues - which I released in 2007 on a small video portal named "LIVEVIDEO.com". I did so because, already back then, I suspected that Youtube would perhaps not be the best place for me to publish this most "sensitive" 9/11 research of mine. Rather than sheer viewer numbers, I was more interested in having my 90-min documentary published online (in nine 10-minute parts) at what I perhaps naively figured was a "more stable / and less controlled" place such as Livevideo.com. Hopefully - I thought - the Livevideo viewers of my research movie would comment in a more articulate and intelligent manner than is the norm on Youtube. And boy was I rewarded by that choice! A constant stream of quite thoughtful (and mostly positive / appreciative) comments kept trickling in - from all over the world. Exciting times they were! I really didn't expect such a steady flow of supportive comments at the time. Golden days indeed...

Now, one of these early, supportive commenters was "Tufa", a fellow Swedish 9/11 researcher who had in fact also suspected (earlier than myself, i.e. around 2005 or so, apparently!) that something was awry with the 9/11 imagery aired on TV. He then kindly sent me (by snail mail) some most interesting DVD's containing original, HD-quality 9/11 video material from SVT (Swedish State Television) that he had personally managed to collect from SVT - by knocking on their door. But I'll soon get back to my valiant friend Tufa (whom I've, incidentally, never met in person - but hope to meet in the near future). Firstly, let me tell you what happened with that video portal (Livevideo.com).

To make a long story short, my blissful and encouraging period at Livevideo.com abruptly ended sometime in late 2010 - when the video portal suddenly (without warning) shut down! Here's a website which comments on (and laments about) Livevideo.com's mysterious disappearance. In fact, it was quite a disappointment for me too: only a week or so before its demise, Livevideo.com's Italian section had seen September Clues (part A) reaching N°1 (i.e. "most viewed video on Livevideo.com" - in Italy)...

In 2009, of course, I started Cluesforum - with the priceless help and skills of Hoi Polloi - and Tufa soon registered as one of its first members. Several years later, Tufa went on to launch his own forum, Tufavideo.net. As of today, however, it only has 9 registered users (which is a crying shame, since Tufa is truly a pioneer of the 9/11 imagery research - and deserves far more attention).

So yesterday I went to Tufavideo.net (which I admit not having visited for quite a while) to see how it was faring "traffic wise".

Well, here's what I found ...

TufaVideo_Screenshot_01.jpg

Let me translate this line for you :

"Ci sono 0 utenti registrati, 0 utenti invisibili e 16522 utenti anonimi che stanno visitando questo forum."
"There are 0 registered users, 0 invisible users and 16522 anonymous users [currently] visiting this forum."

Another line says:
"The maximum number of users online was 867672 on Monday, 26 December 2016 at 15:34"
Woohaa! That's about 1656 X more than Cluesforum's figure of maximum number of users online ("524 - on April 21st, 2013") !

Now, don't get me wrong: I do not wish to make a big deal about this (I think we all know about "bots" and other such cyber trash). However, you may agree that it makes one wonder about the credibility / significance / reliability of ANY traffic stats displayed at ANY internet forum...

On the other hand, I am secretly hoping that the Tufavideo.net traffic stats are more credible than our own : if Tufa's forum (with its 9 registered members) has around 15000 anonymous visitors every day, Cluesforum might have a few hundred thousand anonymous daily visitors! :P

Dear Esteemed Clues Members,

My apologies for putting this in Chatbox. At present, I cannot contribute much to the forum at present as I am awaiting surgery for cataraxts and I have only one eye operable. Understandably I am anxious of a positive outcome.

I was interested in the Moon Hoax reference to Wallace and the notion that one cannot maintain thrust in a vacuum but was unable to read the .pdf as I have to write in Wordpad which offers high contrast and extra large print as I have always been photo-sensitive since birth as well as my present situation (A decent CRT would be useful even with a 24" LED monitor).

If anyone could possibly transcribe the .pdf into something I can read on Wordpad, I would be most grateful.

I am hoping that I can later post my own work on my Push-Pull theory (buoyancy (question of balance)) relating to the notion of gravity ('Something is rotten in the state of Denmark' (Hamlet)).

Be well.

Dear Sharpstuff,

I did a transcription in Rocketry thread a while ago. You might find a longer one I think I did if you search the thread
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1632&hilit=Rocketry+in+vacuum&start=765#p2405558

I believe many engineers and scientists were pretty upset at the time and there are probably more things written about this to be found in archives. The science and media hoax seem to have kicked into full gear around the turn of the 20th century. With Einstein et.al.

I wish you best of luck with your recovery Sharpstuff. /Patrik
