    Default Austech Back-Up Reset - Missing Threads & Posts

    Yesterday, 9 Dec 2016, Admin requested to roll back data from the back-up server to recover the joke thread, which had been accidentally deleted.

    As a result, some posts /threads made between the reset time and the back-up time will have been lost.

    It was decided that the recovery of a thread with thousands of posts was of greater importance to most members than the small number of posts sacrificed in the restoration process.

    Admin posted the intention to perform the rollback, but of course, that post was also lost after the reset had occurred.

    If you have a thread or post missing from yesterday, please re-post.

    Apologies for any inconvenience and confusion.

    Thanks MTV.

    Your third sentence covers it , it was worth it to get it back as it contained thousands of posts and many members enjoy it.

    I have been away after a family death, but am now back home at least for a few days, so will run counter updates. Members can and will notice that their post counts and reputation numbers will change to what they should be.

    Ok, search index is rebuilt and should be snappier (if you dont use the Google search that is).

    I have updated reputation, but left user post numbers.

    Hey! no fair! I worked hard to get those three days!!!! If, however, it was 30 years, I might be interested.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    The joke thread certainly helps me a lot. Nice to have a laugh every now and then.
