OK, here's the deal folks:

After 2 weeks of hard work trying to figure out just what the heck is going on, we've given up. We got the sites back up, but the problems never went away. For instance, we were unable to access the Store, or edit a board, no matter what we did.

We're going back to our 2/21/2010 backup (the first problem was on 2/23/2010). I know it sucks, but if it fixes the problems, it's worth it.

If it gets problematic again, then I'll probably have to kill someone. Just hope it isn't you.

For those of you that need it, we now have a read-only version of the site from the last 2 weeks up:

http://old.mazda3forums.com/
http://old.fordfusionclub.com/

If you need a post from one of our other sites, let me know. As of right now you can access PM's from any site, but only posts from M3F and FFC.

It is unfortunate, but it had to be done.

On the plus side, so far no error has shown itself (for whatever that's worth, considering it has been 5 minutes).

Yes, if the errors are gone it'll be well worth it.

Do you have email notification enabled for PM's? I find it pretty handy to have turned on.

hmm... this problem has been ongoing for 3 years. maybe this will fix it finally.

seriously though... i work for the biggest hosting/domain company in the world and even WE keep external daily (actually hourly) backups of all our servers. it is costly but worth it for DB data that cannot be recovered on rollbacks.

thankfully it looks like this might be the fix that keeps it running smoothly.

Re: Uh oh! I don't know where all my posts/registration went!

So I know we arent suppose to make a new account to complain about our old account but I was just on here last night, about 12 hours ago and now my old account (Palu1) is completely gone. When I try to log in it says now such user and all my posts have been deleted. Is this because of the rollback or some other reason? I'm really upset about it.
