Thanks to Dan for his prompt response in restoring AMIT forum.  :clap

There was a problem with our host, and Dan, despite a very busy period at his work was able to get us back on line again.  :thumbsup

During these (and there have been very few fortunately) outages we often notice some of the data Base of messages and other things have been impacted.
If any member notices any such anomalies please list them here and we will attempt to rectify them. Like MK says "It's just an Attempt"

Once again a big thanks to Dan for making the time to help us again!!
Very much appreciated.  :wave

Boy it was a tough one yesterday to check AMIT everytime and not being able to see anything. It is so much part of the daily routine that it really was like an addictive without his drug!!  ;D ;D
But I was also sure that the good people in the background were doing everything to keep it running again! Thanks to all, technical crew, editors and others to make this place available!  :thumbsup

The first post of the "Who is going where" thread seems to be gone?

OK,  we can all continue to use the forum for now but there is definitely still an issue with some posts missing. I suspect it's not an issue with actual missing data but an escape character decoding issue that's causing some text not to be output to the templates. We'll see.

Whenever I click on "Show unread posts since last visit" (which is the way I've always approached the forum) it always shows that there have been none.  However, upon a quick search there are posts I haven't seen and threads marked "new."  This means a search through every single section though.

 :smack Further to the outage. The problem was as a result of an 'anomaly' in the host server.  ???

Due to the circumstances of our current agreement we have no further recourse of action. We are taking steps to ensure the chances of another occurrence of this nature are unlikely! 
   
We have restored most of the AMIT forum's various board's, contents, but a lot of threads have had the 1st or some subsequent post's wiped off for some reason.

Busy time behind the scenes for all editors, so hopefully members will be able to restore most of their own lost post's, or at least the ones that are most important to them & AMIT, which they still have copies of on their HDD or other devices?


Apologies to all!  :-[ :-X :-\

Hi Jbaent,
 :think At this stage the only things we will be able to restore are the ones that you are able to recover the information from youself. The ones that you know the original source of ie. as I have done in the 'Tracker' - tracks thread. All of the links to the photos and the lyrics were lost and I restored them awaiting for the release later this week to include the details as they are released. If you know the content of the post then you'll be able to edit the post and replace it.

I know it is not entirely satisfactory, but we have to work with the situation as we find it.  :-[ :-\

PS I just noticed most of the Golden Heart work I did last week is gone too.  :smack
