Was wondering the same. What did we miss?

Nothing since it was down for the entire week. :)

I posted to the modcave about what we have and what I think happened, I need a bit of rest and I need to play with my dogs a bit.  Tomorrow when I'm not so tired, I'll try to put something up.

- New Registrations are temporarily disabled
- We may be missing some posts and some newly registered members have been removed.
- There will be minor annoyances as we recover some more items, and many of the forum modifications are missing (like posts, as an example)

BUT we do have all the content back and didn't lose a big chunk of it like last time in 2010 (or whenever that was)

NOTE:

If you sent a PM to anyone after 2am EST on Feb 1, those were not backed up and thus lost.

I was slightly worried it had something to do with me essentially requesting a new user class to use for posting podcast episode threads, and something going catastrophically wrong when someone tried to make one.

Or someone tried to route the Iowa caucus results through this website.

Thanks, Belgarath & Co.!

P.S. Was it Nazis?

I've created a thread for reporting post-crash issues with the forum.  Please report any such issues there.
