Forum problem and missing posts
« on: Mar 10, 2013, 10:35 AM »
As you may know, the forum is experiencing regular problems lately. When a table is corrupt, we usually need to restore using the most recent backup.

Depending on the backup, some of your posts may get lost. We are sorry if this happens.

We are looking to move to a more reliable server. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Indeed, some posts and pms have disappeared. But don't be sorry, it's not your fault! I'm sorry for you that you have to spend your weekend trying to fix the problems. Happily the outages don't last too long... because I can't stand being away of EJ. ;)  I hope you will find a good new server. Anyway, thanks for everything, Ethan!  :^^)

Thanks and sorry about missing stuff. I had to use the backup from March 7.

This is definitely an unsatisfactory situation. Hopefully, we won't suffer for too long.

Sorry about the missing posts. I am looking into a different host and will make an announcement before doing so.

pierralex, you are welcome. This is our home!
