What happened this weekend?

Post by Leviosa on April 18th 2011, 11:08 am

Dear Members,

We wanted to apologize for the inconvenience on your forums during the weekend.

Indeed, we had server issues related to our host who decided earlier this weekend, and without consulting us, to make hardware changes on them.

Following these changes, you have encountered problems with downtime, maintenance pages, white pages, disappearance and / or mixing of messages and other problems.
Today, Monday morning, most problems have been corrected and you should not have downtime or maintenance messages. However, the forums hosted on servers directly affected by this changes of material have lost content over the last 48 hours that can not be retrieved.

Feel free to contact our support team if you are still having trouble with your forums.

Although this event is linked to our host and therefore beyond our control, we are putting everything in place so it does not happen again.

Best,
Forumotion Team

Are we still having problems?

Our board just went wonky for a few people and my reputation (+ or -) disappeared next to my name. I still can't get the time on the forum to change either.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Lost all graphics - Is this due to weekend glitch?

Post by Zod on April 21st 2011, 9:15 pm

My colors are intact, but the log graphic, menu icons, etc that I created, uploaded, and assigned to my forum are now missing. Was this caused by the glitch over the weekend? If so, how do I recover the graphics? Are they no longer hosted on the server? They should be recoverable from a back up of the server as they are months and months old.

It turned out to be the web filter at work. The graphics hosting site was reported as having malicious software. Access to the site was blocked. Graphics are showing now.
