Re: Re: NOBODY GIVES ME A HAND IN THE COMMUNITY ?

posts: 1797 Catalan Countries

Rick, watch out this user. He has received a reasonable amount of attention (free, and it seems that some paid also from someone) from a bunch of people from the Tiki Community over the last year (at least).

And this user is known to use some "physcological games" that can keep you trapped for a while in his game:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transactional_analysis#Some_commonly_found_games

Some of us got dissapointed with his attitude (me for sure, and I presume that some others might also). Therefore, I decided to stop playing his games and stop loosing my time with him.

I wonder how many times this user has tried to help any other user in the Tiki community...

Good luck, Rick.

And Good luck, of course, for this user.

What ?
The Tech that is making the upgrade was recommended by Gary... and I am just asking for somebody just to DO IT !

"Physcological games" ? Are we getting crazy ?
Here is a job in process by a tech of the Tiki Community recommended by Gary ( Not By You Xavi ) uncompleted !

Perhaps is this an intention on part of Xavi to evade the Tiki Community responsability of a Tiki Community Tech who is destroying my web sites in exchange of 100 Euros ?

And yes ! THAT'S RIGHT ! I can not give a help to another, because in the Tiki matters I am completely a newbie !
And no ! THAT'S AND ERROR ! I have not received any PAID HElP till now !

And when I asked a paid help from You Xavi, as a Consultant and Tiki Service Provider, "You Had No Time ! to Help Me !"

Therefore I ask FOR A PAID HELP TO ANY TECH to end the work and recover my sites !

These are called "Physcological games" ? Games ? To freeze a site for 4 month is a game ? A "Physcological game" ?

I will try to help you, but as I said, you'll need to clearly explain exactly what the problem is... I've read through all of your posts, but I don't see a problem — your site appears to be running just fine.

Please provide detailed information (including screenshots, specific steps, and so on):

  • What you are trying to accomplish
  • What is actually happening (including the steps you take)
  • What you would expect to happen.

Thanks a lot for your answer !

The upgrade of my first tiki http://ebasystem.com was done and is actually 9.1...
But in the same server, I have my second tiki http://ebawords.com. which upgrade was began 4 months ago and abandoned one month ago in the middle:

1) The server is full (over the quota in which Hostgator make the backups ) with the old ebawords.com and with new files and tests and versions 60, 70, 90 etc... and without backups is not good to go on adding new content to my sites... and ...

2) from 4 months ago I was asked by Torsten, the tech recommended by Gary, no to add nothing because "the upgrade is ready this weekend...!"

3) Therefore those two sites are stopped for 4 months, registered members are GIVING UP and NOT renewing their membership ( from the first of July 115 + members... I don't want to think what will happen on September the 1st ! ) because those sites are freezed for 4 months without NEW content !

4) So, I ask from a TikiWiki Consultant WITH TIME to finish this works, that I understand is just to be finished in only some hour or two, because in my server the upgrade was done and the databases also upgraded !

5) From the first moment it was a paid job in exchange to a donation to the tiki community, not a goodwilling favor I asked for ! And I, a TikiWiki newbie, go on asking for a consultant paid job to finish an upgrade !

To your disposition for more aclarations !

You still have not indicated what is wrong with your site. Please re-read my post: you need to provide details of what is wrong.

This really isn't a Tiki problem.... it is a limitation of your host. I recommend that you remove the old test installations that you no longer need. Or, move to a host with unlimited space.

The work of the upgrade is in the middle, and I need SOMEONE to finish the upgrade:

What is wrong: 4 months without adding a line is the death of my two sites...

Why I can not add a line, because I was asked not to add nothing because the databases are in upgrade... for 4 months... each weekend...

SIMPLY I need to END the upgrade and begin to write in the sites again ALSO TODAY !

SIMPLY a TikiWiki Consultant must receive the password to entre my server, end the upgrade AND THAT's ALL !

Thanks again for your answers and help !

That's right Ricky ! The server excesive volume of inodes is not a problem of TikiWiki... the problem is that in that server there is 5 or 6 tiki versions for ONLY two sites:

1) the new ebasystem.com ( I can not remove it ! )
2) the old and currently ebawords.com ( I can not remove it ! )
3) and the folder of the upgrade "ebawords_website" with the SVN_60, SVN_70 and SVN_90 versions....

This folder of the upgrade must be finished, needing ONLY ONE of those versions, and replace the old ebawords tiki... and so the server will receive automatics back ups !

BUT THE REAL PROBLEM is that the laat email form the TikiWiki Tech "Do not ad nothing because the databases are upgraded" a long time ago, means that any line that I'll add will be lost and will not be included in the upgrade !

Therefore I don't update the sites and they are freezed, stopped and dying !

That said, it is URGENT for me to end the upgrade and return to update daily the sites in an attempt not to lost them !

I hope I was clear: the back up IS NOT the problem (I don't need to host the sites in an unlimited space hosting), but the URGENT UPGRADE IS MY REAL PROBLEM !

If I were you, I would simply forget the upgrade for now, and use your site "as is." As I've said before, it appears to be working just fine.

If you paid someone to upgrade your site, you should follow-up directly with that person — not here on this forum.

Upgrades are generally quite easy... unless you're making a large jump (such as from Tiki 4.x to Tiki 9.x) or have customizations.

Ricky:

1) The old site is appearing on the screen working fine, but it need to be upgraded to be expanded due to its success !

2) I asked HERE in the forum for help to upgrade because as still said I am a tiki-wiki neebie.

3) Gary recommended to Torsten as Tech from THIS COMMUNITY and the works were done INTO the COMMUNITY and the donation was FOR THE COMMNITY!

4) The work is, as said by the TikiWiki Tech just to end !

5) The situation can NOT be stay "as is": ebawords must be expanded and the server must be cleaned !

6) I did not still paid nor commended this upgrade "with someone" BUT WITH A TECH OF THE TIKIWIKI COMMUNITY recommended by Gary !

7) Yes, "Upgrades are generally quite easy" but not for me... therefore I pay for it !

8) What the problem for some Consultant of the TikiWiki Community to do a paid work and finish the half that is necessary to do to end ?

9) There are not TikiWiki Consultants availables for some hours ?

10) TikiWiki Community does not need my donation ?

Thanks again for your answers and help !

Roberto:

If I were you, I would:

  1. Delete all the temporary installations from your server in order to clean up space so you can run backups.
  2. Turn your site back "on" using the existing Tiki installation. At least this way the site will be live once again.
  3. Follow-up with whomever you contracted to do the upgrade, or reach out to another Tiki Consultant to do the job.

OK !
To find another Consultant I am contacting once again to this forums, to you or to Gary !

It's really a pity to delete a work ready to end !!!!!

Nobody answers my emails at the consultants network... somebody there ?
posts: 292

Hello !

No consultant answer to my emails asking for a paid upgrade... or they don´t need 100 Euros !

Perhaps in the community, somebody smarter than me, can do this paid job ( half done ) and to do the upgrade ( payment through Paypal ) ?

Hi !

The work done by the consultant of the TikiWiki Community, Torsten Fabricius, with the recommendation by Gary, not only was abandoned in the middle, but now are being discovered ERRORS that a Consultant from this Community CAN NOT DO ( out of abandon the work, he did errors )!

The site http://ebasystem.com was upgraded to 9.1: the link to 'Spanish' in the front page does not reach to any place !

That's means that the Spanish members are leaving my sites before the 1st. of September (when they must renew their membership..!!!)

Also in this case ( as in the case of the upgrade not finished of http://ebawords.com ) you'll continue in absolute silence and bearing that these are "psychological games" ?

Anybody there will assume THE TIKIWIKI COMMUNITY responsibility ?

Also now I'll be ALONE IN THE COMMUNITY with a work BAD DONE and ANOTHER UNDONE ?

I am waiting for 5 long months the end of the upgrades of my 2 websites Tiki ( see below ),
and any answer is received to my posts in the Tiki Forum, including the fact that the sites
are working with errors caused before he abandoned the work in the middle, by the Tiki.org Consultant Torsten Fabricius, recommended by Gary Cunningham-Lee, a Principal Tiki Consultant,

If there is STILL no response within the next 24 hours to my requests to correct the errors caused by the Tiki.org to my sites

http://ebawords.com/ and
http://ebasystem.com/

and the damage caused to my sites due to the errors of your consultants is not amended within 48 hours, I'll need to appeal in different ways.

After those 48 hours I'll feel also free to publicize all the thread and emails sent and received during the last 5 months, including my personal reviews and the proofs of how the sites are non-working, causing as a result the nullification of the membership of 98% ( only true to the current day ) of my registered member to those sites !

Because the link is wrong. Instead of linking to http://www.wiki.ebasystem.com/El+Libro+del+Sistema+eBA, your link should be to http://ebasystem.com/El+Libro+del+Sistema+eBA. Or, better yet, it should be a wiki link — not an external link.

I suggest that you review the docs on how to create a links.

This IS NOT the only problem... The site WORKED PERFECTLY before the failed upgrade of the TikiWiki Consultant...

If I should know how and where to do what do you say, I SHOULD NOT NEEDED ANY HELP from an INCOMPETENT TikiWiki Consultant...

Hello Roberto Azar,

Please respect this as a onetime statement to all your "Caps Lock" messages and complaints in the Tiki forums.

It is true, that I have been prepared to help you with the upgrade of two websites on a voluntary non-paid base and in my private spare time.

I did NOT ASK for any money, I did NOT GET any money and I do NOT WANT any money from you.

I apoligise for all missunderstanding between us and I state, that in the last few weeks I have been demotivated by all your "Caps Lock" complaints in the forum and by the fact, that more than one time, when I wanted to proceed and tried to log in to your account, you obviously had changed the login or the password.

At the moment I do not have any access to your server (again) and I do not want to have it back.

Instead I refer to the agreed work and the work I have done for you up to today:

  • Check two websites, if they might be possible to be upgraded with only a very limited amount of time, check if the upgrade would require a bigger amount of time, like reconfigurations and theme coding. This check is done. For free.

  • Try at least one upgrade of a copy of each website. This might be used for productive use if everything worked out well. This is done. For free.
    One upgrade could be used and is running since Mai 2012. The other upgrade did not work out and it appeared to be necessary to use a different method.

  • For this second upgrade I was running out of time and you should continue using your existing unmodified old website.

I hold the view, that after six years using a missconfigured website in the same version, it would not matter to use it a few more weeks.

  • Whilst doing testing, a certain amount of files have been added to your account, which are removed in the meantime - I have cleaned up the account a few weeks ago - after again getting temporary login from you.

  • Additionally there have been arising problems due to the way you did organise your server accounts. You started to change that with your ISP, but differently than I recommended.
    As I have been involved anyway, I stepped in and after a few hours I solved the problems together with the support of your ISP. Unfortunately I did this for free.



There is still one upgrade-job not finished and as this is a quite old version, there would be additional reconfiguration work to be done after the successful upgrade.

  • As you have been frequently complaining in the forum in an unacceptable and insulting way and as I did not make modifications to your still running original site, I am not prepared to continue work for you on a volontary unpaid base and I do not want to take on a paid job with s.b. who communicates in the way you do.

  • Your website still works just as it always worked.

  • As a conclusion, there is no work I am currently working on for you, at least since you changed the login data again.

  • I did more work for you, than anybody would expect me to do for free, including one successful website upgrade and solving some issues related to your server account.

So there is no reason to mention me in any negative or insulting way and it would be the best, that you stop mentioning my name or contacting me again or threaten me with any action by Means of the Superior Court of Civil Justice of your country.

  • Just get a consultant and pay him for the upgrade of your second website and stop insulting this forum with "Caps Lock", stop contacting me and stop wasting the time of further more volontary community members.


Sincerely,
Torsten

Hi !

After 2 months of silence suddenly you appear ! What Happen ? Suddenly you have time to write a speech ?

Yes, you disappeared and did not answered my emails for 2 months, therefore I logically changed my server password... Who knew what happened with you ? Who knew where were my server data and credit card data (also was changed ... ) ?

You repeat 27 times "FOR FREE"... read carefully YOUR FIRST email and that was accorded the payment of 100 Euros... You stopped that payment FOR FREE...

"... 5) Regarding 4) we leave the hours. Hmm think about everything from 10€ to 100€ maybe. If I just need a few minutes or so and you contibute to the docs someday, I am fine enough.

.............

Cheers
Torsten..."

See you ...
