Disappearing posts

Postby Moon-Crane » Mon May 10, 2010 4:32 pm

Anyone noticed any posts disappearing in various threads? I noticed a few disappear from yesterday when i logged in late last night but put it down to the posters just removing them themselves. But, a thread also disappeared from the general forum that the poster says he didn't delete. I could't see any reason for it to be removed by admin.

So, i'm just wondering if admin know of any glitches occuring, or if other users have experienced anything?

Yes, I could've sworn that I posted something on the DVD/Blu-Ray thread yesterday morning. but when I logged back on last night it had gone. I thought it was me clicking off the website before hitting submit.

I had this happen to me as well on the Doctor Who thread yesterday. I've checked the Mod Logs and nothing has been 'officially' deleted, so it looks like Stu could have a database issue of some description. Hopefully it's nothing too serious.

Thanks for raising the issue, as has already been said, nothing has been deleted by the Mods themselves.

I'm wondering whether it's related to maintainance work that went on over the weekend at my hosting company as they moved all the websites on one particular sever (which includes this one) to a new server, with next to no downtime, so I will see if any issues have been reported with regards to this.


Cheers

That's possibly it. A few posts in the narrow window between backup and switchover might have been casualties.

Well I haven't found any reported issues, the migration started on May 8th at 8PM Eastern Standard time (about 3AM UK time), and finished May 9th at 3pm (about 8PM UK time), so it happened sometime between those times.

I think MC may be right, some posts being lost between the short amount of time of the databases being frozen ready to be copied and restored on the new server, so I can only apologise about that.

I'm pretty sure I've seen instances of posts disappearing before the server move. And I swear I've received new posts messages only to find that there are no new posts.

OK that's good to be aware of Strat, thanks

I will see if there are any issues with the database itself, and keep a closer eye on it as well
