Lots of effort has gone into Qora. Many threads on bitcointalk make it confusing to follow. Different repositories on github too.
As of Aug/Sept 2016, current links are as follows:

Some funds are on Poloniex and the wallet there has been disabled for weeks if not months.

Seeing duplicate peers in peer list and only connecting to 2 peers.
Possible network issue or database corrupted.

Downloaded fresh database from https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/IDzrYBiqXnhNCvg

Qora blockchain is about 800mb currently.
