    Default Open a Tweleve.org page on Facebook?

    If cthree or someone would start a Facebook page for Tweleve.org, we would have an alternative place to go when this site is down for one reason or another. It might also help to bring in new hunters, puzzlers and encrypters/decrypters to this site.

    Pros? Cons?

    Cool idea - I've set it up but have no time to manage it. Any volunteers?

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Twele...11450292243175

    Just PM me your facebook email address and I'll add you as a mod.

    Thanks!

    Yay! I have to figure out which e-mail address I used. I'll pm you when I do but I bet there are some longtime Twelevers who would make better moderators than I would.

    Thanks! I've made Domino a mod as he is very active, friendly and was the 1st to request

    Thanks to the others who volunteered - if it seems Dom needs/wants help we can add another.

    Dom any comments on your preference>?

    Thanks again for the suggestion Puma.

    Have fun!

    Good choice. He knows a lot of the hunts/puzzles and will post interesting things, I'm sure.

    Sent PMs to Puma and Cysnsincr who also offered, requesting facebook emails. You will also need to like the page if you haven't already.

    Thanks!

    Hello Twelevers! Facebook says we need 16 more "likes" on the new Tweleve.org FB page in order to gain insights to our activities. Doesn't that sound nice? Think of the savings on psychotherapy! Please find us on FB and give us a like.

    I realize that you probably have a different user name on FB and might be concerned about having your secret identity exposed. I promise we don't care at all who you are and we won't try to expose anyone or publicly connect them with their Tweleve name (unless you want to make the connection there).

    Part of the idea behind a Tweleve FB page is to have a place where we can converse if this page is disrupted, but it's also a way to reach out and bring in new and brilliant minds to this primary website.

    Thanks for your help!

    Well said PUMA. You need to be a FB Moderator.

    Secret Identity....sounds so mysterious, ooooooow. No wonder I have felt so "exposed" over the years. If only I were more important than I am (we should all say this to ourselves). CHEERS!

    Default The Monk's Tale

    For those who are not yet checking Tweleve on Facebook, here is the explanation (and fix - we hope!) for the most recent disruption of this site:
    Sorry for the issues, site went down due to too many CPU cycles and the only way to get it back up was to pay more which we cannot currently afford. Site is up, have fun!

    I had then inquired: "Is there something we can do to reduce the number of CPU cycles, and keep the site up consistently? Or should we all be clicking on the ads and/or fundraising link on the site?"

    The cycles were inflated by bots hitting the registration page - I've passworded that so hopefully it will help! No much we can do as individuals about cycles, yep click those ads and donate on site if you can - thanks! ~cthree
    I think what this means is that the site was still being targeted by malicious users - fake registrations/spammers this time, instead of the hackers who had blocked pages in the past. It sounds as if the vulnerability has been addressed. Thanks, cthree! We do like this site, the archive of old ideas and the meeting place for armchair hunt friends.
