Hello,

Can we have a link to that forum? Possible the founder of that forum may have deleted that forum?

http://acrosstheuniverse.forumotion.net/

it was a thriving forum - I don't think the founder would have deleted it

there were a couple of disgruntled/banned members who might have complained to forumotion with no justification

it was an arts forum with an incredible amount of information and great posts

I hope we can get it back

Thanks a lot

the new forum has nothing to do with the original one

It appears that the forum has been deleted, and I don't think the forum has been banned, I'm sure this one has been deleted, so the possibility here is that the Founder have deleted or accidentally deleted it, do you still have in contact with the founder? If so, he can perform a backup for his forum, simply just send him this link with the guide on 'how to perform' a backup for your forum.

If you don't have any contact with him, then there isn't much/you can do :/

thanks for your help Smile

it's possible that I could contact the founder

or maybe one of our mods will be able to

it would be a big pity to lose all that information

Ok, One more reminder, I'm not sure if the back up tool would be able to retrieve the forum completely, my point is you can try if you want, but a forum deleted completely may not be able to brought back alive if it won't work by performing a back up for it.

thanks a lot

it's very puzzling for the members as we haven't had any contact with the founder for a few years

there was nothing that would warrant somebody to delete the forum as like I said it was a thriving forum dedicated to the arts/sciences scratch

there was nothing of an offensive nature that would justify deleting the forum

hopefully we can get a back-up otherwise we'll have to start again........

So can this be considered solved now? Or do you have more questions about your topic?

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved now.

Important: You can also help the moderators to know if your topic/problem is solved by EDITING your first post and marking the topic as solved. Thank you.
