I have no problem if someone wants to be number 1 , but it has to be based on genuine effort and fair play. Myself and I think all of us here has nothing to compete as some of us are the same people who helped them even to get to number 1 as they say. I/We did it : to help educate the new comers, stop them being taken for rides with promotions and games, promote good investment and make sri lanka a better place to live without any personal benefit . As Members of this forum, we appreciate the past contributions made by you. We have lot of respect for you and I am posting this in this forum, due to that respect.
Now I see not only our efforts were undermined, the 2 previous admins ( small and myslef) and co-admin ( sriranga) who helped them are abused, our accounts are hijacked ( not just one account and myself but as confirmed, smallville , chinwi and others ) , intellectual property copied but the worse is to bite the hand that helped to now say the below , I quotePlease do not talk on behalf of other persons, If they have an issue they could contact us directly via email. Smallville had requested us to freeze his account until he returns one day. We have done just that. Chinwi and Sri Ranga were banned and subsequently unbanned because they tried to promote other forums here by posting labels to prevent our system from detecting these links and automatically deleting them. Would you have tolerated such activities if you were an admin of this forum? With all this we have still unbanned Sriranga and Chinwi.If they wish they could use their account without making false allegations
1) " I believe someone with the consent and knowledge of account owner would have done illegal posting to create a confusion within the membership with the intention of promoting other forum using our platform which is shameful. "I have personally checked slstock account to check whether any wrong doing has happened. His registered email remain as email@example.com
After his concern about his account, IT department of SLE has done a password reset and consequently email would have been automatically sent to above email account of slstock which he had originally used to register his account with SLE. If slstock has lost his password to the gmail account, then he will have to check with google and reset his account with them. We are unable to do anything with personal email accounts and password
2) "In this age of hacking I am not discounting anything, but forum management does not tolerate unethical actions of anyone that would put forum reputation at grave risk." As Moderators, it is impossible for us to look into more than 10,000 accounts and passwords. SHARK and myself is going beyond our normal course of work to bring back good and reputed members like Slstock and other because we have personal; respect of slstock
Oh really GMnet and Shark, so the victims are the culprits now. Thanks for returning the favor we did you. We have done everything possible for Slstock to return to the forum. I dont have any contact details of Slstock, otherwise I would have personally called and apologized to him on behalf of the forum. I have sent him an invitation and apology Private Message. I have kept my pride away and being humble. What would you expect me to do?
The saddest was to see one of our former associates who I thought was a decent person, betraying me/us now . He knows my account was hijacked and article was posted without my consent. And he said this.
Btw, I can' t access my registered email at that site for password reset as my registered email at that site is not accessibleYou don't need to log into your SLE account to reset your password. Use Lost Password option.
Your registered email is firstname.lastname@example.org You will have to log into your gmail account to access your password as IT Dept of SLE already done a reset to you.
After all this you want me /us to send email to admin to reset? Why? If you cannot recover your password through SLE loggin Panel, next available option is for us to reset password and give it to you. This is a very risky method as we do not know Slstock's real identity. Also I have been notified by the IT dept of SLE that previously also Slstock had an issue with a lost password and SLE helped him to recover this. Why is the issue only now.
If anyone wants someone to come back, I thought the first obvious decent thing would be rectify all the mistakes made and show an assured mechanism it won't happen again. We have done everything possible within our powers. What more do you expect us to do?
What is happening is adding insults to injury as above and making things worse by the day.
I am a forgiving , peaceful and patient man as long as others lets me. But am not sure how long I should keep quiet with all this dirty play and insults while I am quiet.
I know GMNet/Sstar and Shark == .... will see this as they are here too. Who is making false allegation. What do you mean by GMNet/Sstar and Shark = ?????Whether they are here or not does it matter to us. We cannot control any person using our name in another forum. We are just trying to prevent other persons from using your account name in SLE Forum. Your answer confirms the unethical activities of other forums to use my name. I am surprised that you are still a part of that forum after knowing that they are using Sharks and my name illegally
Please remember if one pushes too much when the other is quiet , he might not be able to be calm and not retaliate anymore ;-)
Be decent, be ethical and good luck with your effort wanting to be number 1 . But do it the right way.
We were No.1 and we will continue to be No.1 because we are humble in our ways and ready to accept mistakes and ready to be corrected.
