    There was a thread on this - The site was moved to a new server - There was bandwidth issues, and the server the site had been on wouldn't always bring up the site.

    JS managed to save most of the posts - just a handful didn't make it. They must have been posted around the time of the move. Don't feel bad, 1 or 2 of mine got lost too.

    It won't be an issue anymore. Sorry for the problem.

    I started the transfer at 11:00pm last night and moved the database at that time as well... I think all the post that where made between 11:00 and 11:45ish didn't make the transfer. Which if you lost 5, shipwreck lost 2 and I know a new member "executioner" lost his 1 post... that makes 8 lost post...

    8 out of 5,500 post isn't too bad... The whole process took about 5 hours to complete. Everything should good to go at this point. More space and a ton of allotted bandwidth now....

    Not complaining, I'm just happy that I didn't imagine posting something. Did you lose some PM's at the same time?

    Yes, I think did...

    Did you lose any...?

    When I was in the middle of doing the transfer, things got interesting between the DNS servers. For about 15 minutes I was watching activity between the old and new servers. I've got a feeling that's what happened to some PM's. They were caught in the cross fire. Everything seems to be fine now...

    Yup, that explains why I never got an answer. I just need to remember what I wrote and send it again. 8)

    see, i didn't know anything about a scheduled server change, and then when i came here earlier today i noticed i wasn't logged in so i thought that might have been the issue. i thought that maybe i hadn't noticed not being logged in last night and that caused my posts to not show up.
