Im sorry to report that I made a huge mistake! Our log files (only a weeks worth I might add) exceeded 200 megs, which exceeded our server space. Because of this the server halted uploads. Some how running a repair program for vBulletin with our space maxed out deleted the Premier Galactic Battleground forums database. Unfortunately the latest backup I had was nearly a week old. I think it is safe to say that weve learned our lesson. The board will be backed up nightly. Id just like to apologize to all of you for deleting those messages and over 20 users. Trust me, this will never happen again.

I'm really, truly sorry to hear about that :(
At least people can take this as a way to start over :)
BTW It looks like our post count went with it :(

Hmm, well our post counts will probably be gone shortly anyways, but our disscussion topics are all gone, everything that we were talking about...gone. Oh well, we can just put up some new topics i guess.

Yes, but the cleaning was needed since the beginning.

Anyway, since that also deleted most of Leon and I's work on the Community Policies, you'll have to wait a bit more before you see it.

And the 200 member mark for the senate... looks like we'll have to wait a little longer too... :(

Hmm, the new members within the last 5 days are going to suprised when they try to get back on and they are no longer registered.

I feel real sorry for those members. :(
BTW I was thinking about something, When Chris had to delete my "old" name do to unknown problems is that when he did a system save? My problem happened the same day as these old posts that we are seeing now. Was he prompted to back it up because of ME?! *HUGE EGO GRIN* :D

Well, in the words of the famous Johan Cruijff:
"Every downside has it's upside"
:D

A wee'k's worth of posts included a LOT of oneliners that weren't going anywhere..
just wanted to give a heads-up to people to let you know that if you were notified on spamming, that still stands..
