30th June Update

An SQL query went balls up and as a result all forum posts were given to one user, this is obviously not good, so I did a restore of the posts table (just 1 table). Sadly this table was from the 18th/19th June so a few posts have been lost.

Users are not affected and the few glitches that are present will disappear as new posts reappear.

Returning users may have lost their posts once more (as the post table was used to resolve them - so if you notice a deep decline in posts send me a quick mail and I will resort it out for you)

Aparet from that everything seems to be running fine once more and I will be doing manual backups of the database evey day until X-istence returns in September.

Gonna go hide now.

I thought I had gone mad. The last post I saw was from June 19th :huh: Does this mean all posts dating from June 19th are lost? Or are they just in the wrong place?

Probably lost and I just professed my undying love and devotion to another member here in a thread today. It is gone now and I may not have the nerve to post it again. I hope you know who you are. Holla at me.

All of us who post often each day will have lost a considerable number of posts. If I understood EP correctly, he is only restoring post counts to those members who have just returned since the switch to OSNN. As for us regulars, I don't think we'll be getting our post counts back as there's probably no way to verify exactly what they were. EP, correct me if I'm wrong. :)

Edit: Pre-Jan 5th... what I figured. ;)
