    Hi all, well we had a major issue yesterday and last night. Not sure exactly what happened. I beleive it was a mistake made by entity, one of our admins. Basically 3 rows were gone from the database.

    Another problem was that the backup was corrupted. We had 2 options...

    #1 Back up the old forum from July 3rd

    #2 use this vb version we did 5 weeks ago.

    We chose #2. I know many of you don't like the idea of VBullitin, however we feel this is our best option right now. I think you all will get to feel comfortable here after using it for a few days.

    Now, all posts are here from August 22nd on back. When clicking on a folder you will have to click the scroll down and choose 75 days and newer so that the messages appear.

    Thanks, I hope everything works out.
    Brian

    So this isn't the final vb version?
    Just a "back-up" board?

    Well this is the final board, however there will be changes made. We didn't intend on switching to VB but due to the database issues we were rushed into this. Please be patient and bare with us.

    Yep.

    We had the choice to stay with the old software and lose 3 months, or change to VB and lose 1 month.

    I think that the cosmetic crap will get fixed asap...

    Eugh! this is really harsh on the eyes.

    Just a question but how could this have possibly have happened after the last big f*ck up? What happened to all the precausions that were going to be taken? Why are the back-ups corrupted?

    There is a BUG.
    IE suddenly closes when I'm scrolling this forum.

    Just to be clear, we’ve moved from Invision to VB permanently? This isn’t a temp board?
