View Full Version : So will the 'missing' three months of posts be reinstated?

Just wondering? All my PM's have gone for the three months, my avatar, my posts, as well as everybody else's.

Would the mods care to give an update on the situation as to what has happened, and why posts in Jan 2007 overlap with October 2006?

We are listening, really, we are!

Dunno what they really did (but wipe out the last 3-4 months worth of info), but if the forum works OK now I'm not complaining... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Someone at the SH3 forum said this happened before and the threads came back.

Depends on whether they've taken backups. And considering the huge amount of money they make running these boards I'm sure they'll burn the midnight oil gladly & we'll see it all reinstated in no time flat http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I also had some thought about Forum-backups.
Maybe they make one every three Months or somebody at UBI screwed up the last one.
So they had everything until before three months and the rest has gone missing for good.

In the case of the SH3 Forum maybe they found the backups they had made but lost somehow and this is how they came back.

So there is a little bit of hope left. There were some really interesting topics that got lost, excluding the FW-190 Topic http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Maybe they could just bring back any thread without "the Mustang won the war" tripe in it. That should eliminate about 75% of the missing threads. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Last time this happened I lost like 700 post counts or so.

I hope the screenshots come back, or people re-post them.

I came looking for a few choise '46 ones to post to another forum to kinda advertise the game, but they were all gone. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I really don't care that much about post counts (although I did lose about 160 due to this whole debacle and in those 160 I was trying to share some pertinent things) but there was a lot of good info that was lost.

Just been looking at the SH3 forum and a Mod had posted a google grab of their pages.
I had a quick muck about and came up with this it`s only limited and you can`t access the posts but it may remind people of what they posted, if you add /p/number you get extra pages

old index pages (http://209.85.135.104/search?q=cache:http%3A//forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/frm/f/23110283)

We 'lost' three months worth of perfectly good SPAM and 20+ page flame war threads. C'mon, it's not like we've lost the Alexandrian Library of Heavenly Enlightenment here. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Nevertheless, with me having no post count of any distinction to mourn the partial loss of, I WOULD like to see at least the Hi-Res Screenshot thread recovered..................and the threads that were intended to inform, help, or otherwise not flame people or force them to learn about Britain's biscuit-dunking customs.

Lol, just like last week when you try to open the posts: "3771005425 is an invalid value for m." Was that trouble somehow related to the loss of posts?

Really, it`s not such a big deal. Faults happen. we are all Human and things go wrong. Let`s not drama-queen this thing into something silly like a bunch o` school girls.

Leave it, repost your old stuff and or move on.

Oh, we're not worried or drama-queening. It just shows the supreme idiocy of a company that already has proven its idiocy time and time again.

The sole greatest loss was the 38-page "Why does FW-190 performance suck" thread that was on the frontpage.

That, and my cybersex PMs.
