Losing 3 days of posts is better than losing 3 months of posts.
Sorry for any inconvenience. We'll start taking hourly back ups.
Mammothboy your new handle went with today's posts.
Retardedwaitress, apparently you exist again.
when i logged in this morning everything was back to 4th of June, at least weve not lost too much, although i had some unread inboxes that i guess i wont get back?
what was the problem anyway?
Correct. Anything during that 3-day time frame won't come back, but at least we got it got it down to 3 days.
Also happened at a terrible time for me personally, when I just started a new job and have been without internet.
That said, I just had time to get a SIM card, so should be OK with internet access from now on.
While it's good we had a backup from 3 days ago (better than 3 months ago), I still owe EVERYONE a huge personal apology for losing the recent posts, so sorry for that.
I couldn't be more appreciative of everyone in the community who takes the time to post, whether it's daily or less often, so hope you know that I'm very sorry we lost anything, as it's content you/we have all contributed to CEO.
Username Taken might be able to shed more light on what happened, but I'm just glad we got things back on track for everyone.
Again, been busy with a new job so haven't had the chance to sort it all out completely, but UT has already started talking about improving our backups so that we wouldn't even lose 3 days if some shit like this happened again.
So thanks for everyone's patience, and at least know we're always working towards improving the site in any way we can and this has sparked us to improve our backups even further.
And super glad to see everyone already active again too, so thanks!
