Hi there everybody... I had an account on silk road before it closed but I can't access it anymore. Just want to know if its been deleted or not (I didn't have any bitcoins on it yet but still  Embarrassed) IF I can't get my account back I'd still like to keep up with some members via SILC or IRC. If someone could pm me with help on connecting to the SILCroad chat please do so  Wink.

another shameless color post to stand out from spam

Unless you did something to get banned, you can access it the same way you always did.

I was making alternate accounts up until the day they closed registration, and they all work.

I first heard of silkroad when the site was down.
When I checked again today it was back, spent a couple of hours getting TOR to work with my firewall and now found out there's no obvious way to make an account.
Could anyone pm me and point me in the right direction?  Wink

Iceman, I am in the same boat you are.  If you figure it out, please let me know as I need to figure out how/where to register.   I'm all set with my Tor connection.

thx

Try messing around with cookie settings in your TOR browser.  Sounds like cookies being denied.

OK - from the comments I've read I gather Silk Road is closed for new members...  Nice, that is great.   I realize that the attention it is getting from the media, etc isn't helpful, but what the hell did they think was going to happen?   If you tell a secret to 2 people, chances are 1 of them will spread the word.  Nothing is secret on the internet.   Also, if it is all really so anonymous, then what is the problem with letting new users sign up?

Maybe the reason new accounts aren't available has to do with something else entirely, I would just like to get in on this.  I got Tor all set up and researched how this all works and now I can't even get in.  If anyone can help me out, I would appreciate it.  I know some people are selling accounts, but it seems like a dick thing to turn around and sell them now - if Silk Road doesn't want new members then someone buying an existing account is still a "new" member and that would defeat the entire reason for blocking new members.

I know some people are selling accounts, but it seems like a dick thing to turn around and sell them now
Your moral indignation and outright disparagement and alienation of those with surpus accounts certainly wont help you get an account when you have no ability to register one.

Entrepreneurs have an uncanny ability to recognise a financial opportunity when one presents itself.

there is no invitation process.

Besides the irritation it is causing some people, I have to state the obvious about buying Silk Road accounts:

how can you verify that the account is valid before you get it?

I am perfectly willing to pay bitcoin for a valid account, but I cannot see how to keep from being ripped off.

Not only that, but there will probably be a dozen similiar sites 2 months from now.

Of course, some of them will be LE sting operations.  Grin

I understand all that.  But if I do decide to buy an account, I'm sure the people with the extra accounts would still want to take my money.  When it comes down to it, I doubt they would give a crap what I said about selling them.   It just makes no sense for Silk Road to not allow new accounts if people are just selling them.  If the wrong people want to get access to the site, they still can but now have to pay a small fee.

Ultimately, like I said, if the site and the process is as secure as it is supposed to be, why stop people from creating new accounts?  What is the threat?

I'm pretty new to all this so maybe my idea as to why new accounts can't be created is totally off.   I PM'd the Silk Road OP (rep?) to see whats up.

On a side note, I never understood why people go out of their way to post a comment bashing someone else's comment and not contribute anything to further the purpose of the actual thread... Do you really not have anything better to do than to antagonize someone you don't know and never will?

Nothing worthwhile ever comes easy.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I don't think SR really cares whether some one sells new accounts or not... as long as the site's traffic is low enough not to crash the server.

as has been stated before in here, the site registration is down until he can upgrade the server its on.

-edit- site registration, not the site itself :p

ZOMG Moo!
