It appears our servers are restored to Mon Dec 21, 2015 12:52 am EST. Posts and files made since that time aren't here yet. I don't know if the sysadmin is going to try to restore them as well or not. (I'm guessing not, since the post numbers will all be messed up with people posting live again.)

We've got the files sent to the uploader - we admins were watching for them and downloading them in case we weren't able to retrieve them when the restoration occurred. We'll upload them soon, but don't expect the posts to show up again, unfortunately.

Previous notice:
We currently have a problem with our servers, which have become "unsynced" and the data from the past six days is not visible or available. This includes forum posts, PMs, alterations to the Magic Window and, most importantly, uploaded files. I have contacted the sysadmin, but as I am not yet certain they will be retrievable, please read this carefully:

PLEASE NOTE:

Please DO NOT post, upload any files, or make any other changes for the time being, in case we have to roll back.

All files uploaded since 15 December have disappeared. Do not delete files on your own computers until we are sure we can get these back.
All forum posts made since 15 December have disappeared.
All changes to the database (inc. Magic Windows) made since 15 December have disappeared.
All PMs sent since 15 December have disappeared.

DPLs, please make a note of any files you have PLed so you don't have to PL them again.

This is a syncing problem between our two servers. We hope that it will be possible to retrieve the data, so please possess yourselves in patience.

ALL FILES OF PROJECTS ALREADY CATALOGUED ARE SAFELY STORED AT THE INTERNET ARCHIVE (although our own catalogue shows that they have reverted to open status).

A big thanks for everyone working behind the scenes to get this up and working again. Much appreciated. :thumbs:

Good Morning
I had put a test link, all of it is gone. The following question may be a dumb question but just so I am not messing anything up, I am going to ask. I understand due to syncing issues that is why it is gone. Do I just go ahead and create another 1-minute test because I was still fine tuning it with Kim? My forum user name is draper1. Thank you for your help. :thumbs:

Go ahead and upload the most recent version of your test, and post in your test thread that it's there, just as if you never made the previous upload and post. :)

Yes, aside from some posts and perhaps uploaded files that may have gotten lost in that 15-16 hours. :)

And just let me add that it's a lovely shade of mint green too. Just this side of avocado. Love it. :roll:

Since the crisis is over, I'm going to un-global this announcement. :)
