Site outage today - database rollback - now restored

Post by jmb »

We had a database rollback this morning at 03:10am which made the forum appear to have lost the last year's worth of posts.

It's now been restored to a backup taken at 00:30am. There may be a few new posts lost, but probably most of those were the thread asking "What's Happened?"

I'll be re-enabling posting in a minute or few.

Posting re-enabled. If you contributed something in the wee hours of this morning, perhaps you could resubmit it now.
