Yesterday I started two topics - a boot review of the Magnum Spider and a piece on redundant apps in the Tech section, but looking today I can't find them.

I'm guessing they have been deleted due to me breaching some guidelines, but I can't work out what I did wrong. Is it possible to let me know, so that I don't repeat the mistake(s)?

Thanks!

I reckon PMing a mod would be the faster route to getting an answer. 99% of us really cannot answer your question.

Winterhart, this happened to another topic yesterday and the mods were able to get all of the posts back. I'm not sure what is happening but I would guess that you didn't breach any guidelines. Did you PM a moderator yet? I'm pretty sure Rob fixed the problem yesterday with Mike's help. Just curious, did you have an avatar on your profile? The other member who had this problem lost their avatar at the same time.

Thanks for the advice, I'll get on the case of a PM.

Also, no, I never uploaded an avatar.

I posted a thread yesterday on Piers Morgan's trip to the Katy range, along with some media links ---- it's gone today.

Not sure what is happening.

WarrenPeace, I was looking around for that myself as I had looked at it when you first posted it. Did you send a message to one of the moderators to see if they could fix/resurrect it?

No sir - I'm assuming they are monitoring this thread. (Unless it disappears :cool: )

Okay, I will send them a note.

This is getting very strange. At least three topics have disappeared now. Maybe a software bug? Virus? Hack?

We're always watching.....


But seriously, we've been in the middle of some database migration and we've had to choose the lesser of two evils. Originally, the migration did not move over posts from Friday Feb 1 to Tuesday Feb 5. This is why all of the topics and posts that occurred during that time were missing. (Still with me? Even I'm getting lost.)

We found out that we could restore the posts from the above time period, but we would lose any posts made from Tues @ ~0100 until Tues at 2000. We decided to restore the posts and only lose the posts that occurred within those 8 hours. So the topics and posts are restored and if you posted yesterday and don't see it, we apologize but it is gone.

The good news is that this shouldn't happen again so it shouldn't be an issue in the future. If you guys do experience more bugs or anything out the ordinary, please let us know.

Thanks!

Makes perfect sense.

And the upshot of my (now lost) post was that Piers Morgan is an idiot. Recognizing this is accepted fact, no harm no foul.
