    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    First it was Christian Forums now it is Facebook. Facebook has been down for most of the day worldwide. Facebook has denied it is a ddos attack (denial of service)

    It seems odd to believe in facebooks case that nothing nefarious has happened. It seems kind of odd that all locations went down simultaneously .

    Anyone know anything concrete?

    I was kind of wondering about this. I was worried that I got banned or something since a couple days ago somebody reported something I posted. Good to know it's not that. Seems odd, though.

    Nothing concrete. Not that one would expect a concise explanation after the fact. Most organizations would be mum about that, just like their first response to a data breach is to go silent. It's not corporate culture to talk about it more than they absolutely have to.

    True. I work in IT and when we had a breach it was all hands on deck to manage any public knowledge.

    FB has loaded slowly a couple of times today, but other than that I’ve had no problems.

    Very true. I worked somewhere that had a rather infamous and embarrassing outage that affected hundreds of customers. The company was so protective of their information that when HR discovered that certain employees had posted on social media some stuff that the company considered privileged information (though it was kind of obvious to anybody in IT) that the employees were escorted out of the building when they reported in the next day.

    Reread the above. There's a reason I'm being vague about it.

    FB was working perfectly for me whilst CF was down - I'm not on FB but need to access some pages which are open - no problems for this from UK pages OR some from the USA and 2 from Ukraine
