Title: Missing Posts and Topics
Post by: Irisado on October 28, 2018, 06:32:16 pm
Have some posts and topics gone missing while the site was down?  For example, I am sure that there were topics in the Introductions board this year, but there are none present at the moment.  I'm sure that I had around 190 or so posts before the downtime too.  Is this also related to members' avatars disappearing?

Edit: Looking at the forum stats suggests that everything posted since more or less September 2017 has been lost.

Yeah, the server downtime was due to being booted off the server unexpectedly. Sadly the back-up system had not been working correctly without our knowledge, which has led to us using an older backup of the forum.

Both the server and backup systems have been sorted, so we're not expecting downtime for the near future, especially as the server/host is easier to contact now.

It's certainly good to read that the host is easier to contact and that the backup system has been resolved.  Thanks for the update :).
