To the NOTD community members, We've recently upgraded our forum software from myBB 1.6.0 to 1.6.5. Unfortunately, our database backups didn't work correctly. Earendil and I have worked hard the past 6 hours to salvage it (I haven't eaten by dinner yet - it's midnight here), but to no avail. We've talked to several experts and our web hosting company (HostGator) but there's nothing meaningful that they can help with at this stage. I, more than anyone, feel the pain of the loss. Almost 2 years' worth of content gone. However, it's important to look forward. The forum upgrade helps fix a long host of bugs, provides security enhancements and also improves performance. You can read the change log of the most recent version here. Our last forum software update was close to 2 years ago and this forum software update is critical as we expand further. A lot of what we've lost, we'll rebuild and make better. Earendil and I have learnt some critical lessons from this issue and we will do our best to ensure it doesn't happen again. We will also be constantly migrating key data into multiple areas (NOTD Wiki, main website, Facebook, our local desktops). Please give us a few days as we rebuild some core forum mechanics and recreate our forum infrastructure (updating mod permissions, forum/reputation permissions, templates, etc). Please also re-register your NOTD forum account. It's not the best birthday present to give myself - but cest la vie.
