Exclamation Who Are The rangefinderforum.NET Guys?

I just stumbled upon this thread:

http://www.rangefinderforum.net/inde...shutters.6581/

And then I find that basically all our rangefinderforum.COM threads (which are older than 6 months or so) can be found there — but I did never apply for a rangefinderforum.net membership!

Nevertheless, I have a profile over there: http://www.rangefinderforum.net/inde...-al_cam.35664/

Can someone please enlighten me?

Appears to be a mirror owned by Stephen Gandy himself.

Well, it is NOT fit for use. In that it is not a live system synchronised to RFF, but a test site, with a dummy database cloned on April 29th!

Totally live, I created an account for it a few weeks back. Turned out some Google search results showed the thread in the .net forum while omitting the .com thread from the results and I wanted to read them, so...

RFF testing new forum software. AFAIK some work was done back in late April and has been on pause ever since.

Your «mirror» account didn't accept your real life password then I suppose?

What thread? Browsing through a couple of forums all I can find are last post dates from April - Roger's forum being spammed in late September by some Hare Krishna spammer only registered over there appears to be the most recent post around.

The admins may be playing around with databases, so more recent stuff (and posts made over there) may appear and disappear at random - but as of now, it does not appear to be live at all.

Thank you.

It would have been nice if one would have been asked in advance.

You know, it's a surprise that on that «alternate universe» forum site everyone can see whom I follow.

Not that I would have something to hide, but: that the unkown mirror-forum all of a sudden is publishing particular private details, this is not really O.K.

In fact: it's really, really annoying.

Uh, it does not publish anything the main site does not publish as well (well, with the exception of a spam message or two). That said, it might be advisable to block log-in and write access - so that we do not develop a parallel universe of misdirected users and their posts.

… the second exception is the mentioned «follow» list, and that is infuriating, IMHO.
