this is really worrisome.....for some of us here it is really a loss
10.000nds of posts 1000nds of members......😔

and after the attack of the second forum all posts are lost too 😬

 

If you post something that you think is highly valuable - for example, a particular scientific study and your take on it - and you don't want to lose it, just be sure to mirror a copy on your own computer on an external hard drive or something. Worse case scenario, the forums gets lost, you just copy and paste your most important research on the new forums later.

Posts are all lost from the hacked forum which ran from end Feb 2019 to 15/16 May 2020 when it was hacked, so about 110-120K posts lost.

But the 'old' forum with 5.8 million posts which was made read only end Feb 2019 and disappeared end Feb 2020 .... there is a backup of that!

What was the Legacy forum?

 

This was/is mate

I believe there first was the 'Harris' forum and then the above linked forum .... then the 'hacked' forum and now this one.

The above linked is being called the 'legacy' forum and was meant to be read only from end Feb 2019 .... but a year later it disappeared?

  • 1 month later...

Any news on this being put back online yet?

Only been 16 months since it was removed .... disappeared end Feb 2020 .... not hacked and the database does exist.

 

Over 5.8 million posts .... that is a great deal of information to be removed!

And members did offer to pay for the hosting (if that was the issue)

 

So .... any news?
