Welcome back everyone :)

I apologize for the extended downtime. To make an incredibly long story short, someone at our server host made a huge mistake, and all their customers accounts had to be reloaded from backups. Luckily for us, we were on the first server to be completed.

I don't *think* too much was lost. It seems like everything from before noonish Friday is there. I was on vacation but I think the downtime started Friday evening. Sorry if anyone lost anything big.

To their credit, our host worked tirelessly to get us back online and have already put a process in place to make sure this doesn't happen again.

:)

PS The best place to get info if the board is down is on our twitter: Buffy-Boards (@BuffyBoards) | Twitter

I was wondering why the weekend had few posts! And I was like, I know I read this "new" post before. I thought I was going crazier. Phew.

Sounds like some poor technician got the weekend plans ruined... :)

I feel for them though. Desperately trying to get things back in order again while the inbox quickly fills up with complaining customers who everyone thinks their site is the most important one that absolutely needs to get back online first.

I didn't complain or open any tickets :D
You don't care about us? We could have just been suffering forever! (for those that actually noticed) and he'd be like, 'well, i didn't get any tickets from them so it's all good in sunnydale'

That's inexcusable! Especially with how much membership costs.

Nope, everything is working on my end. I'll get on the laptop in a bit and check my Firefox. Maybe clear your cache though?

I know you are joking, but for anyone else lol, they were updating us continuously about what was happening so there really wasn't a need to complain or open tickets. ;)

Confirmed - working on Firefox. Like I said, try clearing your cache or doing a hard refresh.

How do you quantify how popular the site is? Look at the statements of how glad folk are you are back, add to that the law of averages when doing an international poll IE each one person equals 1,000 people. So only then do you realise the site is real good.
