temporary what's happening

Recommended Posts

What happened... I don't think it's been identified yet, but Carl's working on finding out and getting it fixed. Some of the threads DID just disappear... and hopefully they will be reinstated when the problem is identified and under control....

Hi all. We use shared hosting that is run by the Fusion people to operate the boards. It's handy because they know how the boards work and can take care of problems pretty quickly. The downside to shared hosting is that other sites are on the server, and in this case one of them turned out to be a spammer and mangled the server a bit before they could boot him.

The threads are not lost, but disconnected. To get them back, we'll have to close the boards for maybe an hour or so and run some scripts to try and recover them. I've asked the mods if they think it's worth it to try and recover the lost threads, but please let me know what you think. I know it sucks to lose posts.

Unless there's a risk of losing even more posts by running some other scripts, I'm all for trying to recover the posts, even if it takes an hour or two :)

And may I also suggest closing the boards between 12 and 7 am GMT? :shades: ;)

Yeah, I don't think Ron Jon's Top Ten was completed, and it's not fair to him to not have results or to have to re do his ten.

Tell Fusion Billy to put on his nuclear super hero cape and get cracking!

I agree with all of the above.

That one at this time is the most important to retrive I think. It could be redone I'm sure but just wouldn't be the same :crazy:

I agree that everything that has to do with ME is most important....(insert crickets chirping)...OK, whatever is best for the (sigh) team.

Apologies for the delay with the PTT everyone :(:P (Why do I apologise? it's not my fault really... eh well... sories!)
