Folks,
Apparently we lost more then 3 months worth of threads.... so, lets not fill these missing months with topics about how they were lost. I will find out tomorrow about what happened and will get back to you. I dont know, i dont think anybody does at this point, whether missing content is recoverable or not. Soo..., lets just hang tight and wait till some kind of info surfaces. Ok?


Here what is left of it

A relatively small group of us have had a very interesting and informative private topic going for a while now, about 6 months or so. We were close to 1100 posts.

Everything for the last three months is gone. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Well, most of the spam content lost is no big deal, but there was some useful stuff lost especially for campaigns, skins and the like. Also wondering about new users registered during this time...will their registerations be lost?

That was a really gentle reminder how (un)important is our contribution to these forums. I think it's time to change to some place else, we only have got 3 months to run before another crash like this (Hammy cannot spell "B A C K U P"). Anyone has got a better suggestion for IL-2 oriented forums?

Arggh I just thought of something Ivan, what about all those posts giving feedback on bugs etc. for the 4.071 beta patch? As well as the other bug reports? Anyway to get those back? I mean some posts were found on the google archives etc. so maybe if you reopen the thread folks can dig up their old posts and repost the info?

Now they seem to have all registered in January, 21st.

Hmmm, luckily enough, my posts solving JFK's assassination and the whereabouts of Jimmy Hoffa and the Ark of the Covenant are all lost, so I won't go on receiving all those threatening calls from C.H.A.O.S. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Oddly enough, this crash has also reverted me to my older SigBlock. I spent considereable effort last week creating a new one in order to be fully compliant with the newly established rules/restrictions.

I didn't keep a copy of the sigblock code/url, etc, in my Profile....Now I'll have to go thru all that effort again. That is small potatoes, I admit. But I certainly hope the Mod in charge of SigBlocks doesn't expect ANYone to be in compliance by the the deadline day, which is Tomorrow.
