  • You can just shoot me now!

    in my attempt to meld the Euro Champs forum with this one, and still not properly familiar with all the ins and outs of this new bit of machinery, I killed the entire forum.

    :-(

      Doesn't the forum software do automatic backups? Might be missing the latest messages but most should be there and if it doesn't do backups kick your technicians butt.

              That's exactly how any larger forum should work and any commercial webpage. There is a Cron based automated backup plugin for vbulletin, might be a very good idea here, not just for your kind of mishap, others too, hacks, hardware crashes, etc...you need a regular backup, otherwise at some point in the future there will be dataloss.

                    And so too with it some of my finest comments ever. Or at least that's what I'm telling you now.

                      For another week or so you can read all those fine comments via the Google cache . . . read before they disappear!

                        Hmm. I am not a forum software expert, but it seems pretty clear you need a refund from your website IT crew.

                          there is no such crew: this is "independent" software and that's how it works. caveat emptor.
