• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

Old topic!
The last post in this thread is over 60 days old. Posting in this thread will be considered a bump, so please make an attempt to be courteous if you go ahead with it.

If the last post is over 6 months old, it may instead be a better idea to start a new topic. If you aren't sure about what to do, feel free to ask a staff member for help, or try to locate a 'general questions'-type thread if it exists in this (sub-)forum.

I was informed today by andwhyisit who told me that the server forums had some kind of error since Tuesday and asked me "andwhyisit" down. I apologize for any downtime that occurred. The source of the problem is unknown to me, but I'll look into it when I get a chance.

Anyhow, everything should be working normally now.

I think some posts were gone or something. Because I distinctly remember replying to some threads but I can't see the posts.

I can confirm that. Specifically, it seems that all the posts made after 3:33 AM on Tuesday were lost.

Including my save poll, but at least we still have a forum to post in, and I am thankful for that.

Our host had a server crash. When they re-adjusted it, it messed up the database a bit requiring a database restore up to just before the crash. If there are any posts gone, it can't be helped I'm afraid. They told me that it's unlikely to happen again. Hopefully they were being truthful about that.

The server was down just prior to the topic's creation not when it was last posted in.

Based on which this topic would be better served by being locked.
