lol I don’t blame you. It’s a ton of work and stress for a thankless position.

I also don’t really care one way or another whether I’m an observer here or not. It’s just a matter of what’s best for the community. I’m simply grateful to serve.
Thank you Vortex! More people appreciate you than you know. While I'm at it, thank you to all of the staff. I think the transition has gone great and you all do a job for free that most wouldn't do without decent pay.

I think you stating that just caused a bunch of thanks to appear in my inbox.

It is Italian.

"Tifosi is a group of supporters that make up a tifo, especially in sports (Fans). Tifosi is used for a mixed gender or an all-male group; masculine singular is tifoso, feminine singular tifosa, feminine plural tifose."

Guess I missed all the fun. Was logged on before and then after the event, so I just get to read the news about it instead of experience it. Just glad it was not a real system/server hack and only an account hack. Admins and Mods, please have strong passwords and change them often.

PY004 or other admin, did you get any IP data to look into?

Who says it isn't?

I'm guessing the keyword there is inactive, probably a forgotten remnant of the previous administration.

Meaning that at a hard, code level, EVERY administrative account is not ENFORCED for 2-FA.

@Jaguar it was an unfortunate oversight. Most administrator and staff accounts use 2fa but there are some accounts without a person behind them required for administration. One of those accounts was compromised but has been remedied. From now on, all accounts, even person-less accounts will have mfa to avoid issues like this.

Also, to everyone on the forum; mfa or 2fa is a great and easy way to protect your online accounts. It means someone can have your username and password and still not be able to access your account (mostly). Highly recommend enabling it. This is great site to help you get started: https://twofactorauth.org/

Informational:

The V1 Tifosi social group that used to exist alongside other social groups here at RDF was started by InsipidMonkey in January of 2018.

The group had roughly 73 members and around 85 individual threads at the time that RDF removed those social groups.

It was simply a location where many V1 fans could discuss primarily V1 related topics without dealing with the jokesters that tend to interrupt discussions.

The group survives in other locations now.

None of this petition junk or demands have anything to do with the group at large and all info points to it being a "frame" that simply bothers the RDF administration unnecessarily. The Tifosi group wants no part of any of this.

Now to root out any hidden admin/mod backdoor accounts before some real damage occurs. I would have a hard time accepting someone guessed the password. More like someone pulled the trigger on a sleeper back door account.
