Wave 155 Section - BACK ONLINE

Hi All,

Good news... I have extracted a backup of our recent 155 section that was corrupted some weeks ago by downtime. I am now looking at re-introducing this back to the forum but will require lots of testing first.

Please be patient, I am sure we can fix this in good time. The important thing to remember is that we still have all the threads and posts etc...

Regards,

Ian

Are you trying to imply the 155 is unreliable?

Well having owned one for 4 years from new, I have an opinion that I would be toooo scared to mention here

Although it is a great car TBH.

Re: 155 Section

Its the same as deleting someones posts, it doesnt remove one from their counts. (The AO gallery also ups your post count by one post per fresh gallery upload - I think ).

Are you sure? I've just done a test post and deleted it, my count went up and then down to match.

Re: 155 Section

Sorry to correct you here Ian but between the 20th of October and the 21st of October, wrinx lost about 2,871 posts (calculation is not perfect as it's a net figure for the day, presumably wrinx lost actually a few more 155-related posts).

And yes, I have been keeping a spreadsheet with the data

Re: 155 Section

I lost to, however it'll be good to get some of the 155 posts back again! Will they integrate in with the now existing posts or be logged as new when you re-insert them?

Re: 155 Section

That would be a big read if they logged as new... And imagine the replies they would still get... would bring the server on it's knees (hopefully not)

Re: 155 Section

I can see no way of importing these threads, the only way I know is to create a new read only board and point users to the threads.

Just to update you.
