Important : back up of all the deleted messages and topics

Important : back up of all the deleted messages and topics


Dear users,

This week-end, we had to deal with a big threat that has impacted a lot of users : indeed, all the "visitors" messages where deleted from most of the forums. Thousands of forums where impacted and we had to do something, because sometimes, visitors messages are just the messages from the old members and a part of the forum history, so we had to save it.

For that, we have to make a back up from all the Forumotion forums. Don't worry : only the messages that you deleted during these past 2 weeks will be impacted. That means that you might see a topic that you deleted recently reappearing on your forum. You can just delete it again Wink Thanks to this back up, thousands of forums will find back their History with a big H.

We are really sorry for this inconvenience :rose:

Go through your forum and check to see if the missing things are exactly there. On my forums yesterday, my statistics did not exactly match what was on my forum. They do now.

Look there is a guest who asks something


And if you look then there's only one answer from me.
The question is, therefore, everything that a guest has typed / written has disappeared.

No, I mean guests. Everything that the guests have typed in my forum in 3 years has disappeared. Everything that members have written is still okay

I made a mistake. It was not deleted topics, but archived topics.

Nee topics zijn niet weg alleen de berichten van de gasten.
En niet alleen in het archief maar ook in de bestaande topics.

On our Forum, Taggerz Haven, we had lots of old posts show back up is all. Some from way back in March and April of this year. No problem tho, we are just re-deleting them. I believe all current posts and topics are still intact. Thanks!

We keep getting forums and messages that were deleted long ago showing up in random places. You asked us to delete them, but each time we delete them, a few hours later these old forums and old topics randomly appear again everywhere. I'm talking about 10,000+ old topics at least and many old forums, which has to get deleted manually every few hours. Please fix this issue as quick as possible, because it is affecting the entire forum and the members.
