        Your posts definitely are deleted Joe - sorry. I'm still trying to unpick why this has happened, but I'll probably roll the forum back to try and restore your posts if I can (it'll mean that forum activity for today is unfortunately lost though).

        • NOTICE

          Due to human error, one of our valued posters lost his posts and whole history at UKMIX.

          To try and remedy this and restore that user's posts, I'm looking at potentially rolling back the forum and restoring us to where we were on Friday morning - unfortunately, this would mean that all posts made since Friday at 6am (UK time) are lost. I am therefore asking that if you have made any posts in that timeframe that you wish to save so that you can re-post them once the site is back online, you save them now - you'll need to save them offline onto something like a Word document. Should this be possible, I hope that we'll be able to do this tomorrow (UKMIX will remain read only until then).

          The facility to edit your posts still exists - this is particularly helpful if you have a heavily formatted post (as you can edit the post, and select the Source buttom - this will then enable you to save the post with all the formatting options).

          You will only have the rest of Sunday to save your posts - therefore, please do this ASAP. Please note that this only applies to posts made since Friday at 6am - all other posts are perfecftly safe.

          If you have any queries, please email wayne@ukmix.org or contact us via Facebook/Twitter (@UKMIX).

          • Unfortunately, the backup option isn't a workable solution - as some of you know, we have a script that runs each morning at around 5:15am (UK time) and it overwrites the previous day's backup. As I didn't pick up on this until Saturday afternoon, we've unfortunately only got Saturday morning's backup. And the error that resulted in thankfulforkelly losing all of his posts occurred on Friday. morning.

            Therefore, there won't be a backup and there's no requirement to save your posts.

                • It was a cultural reset! On the one hand it’s a shame but on the other hand is it really that bad to have posts erased from the internet when I was 14 or 15 and I thought ‘thankfulforkelly’ would be a cute username

                  • How to change a signature ? I didn't find this option.

                                • UKMix seems to struggle a lot at the moment. Or am I the only one having problems with the site right now? It takes ages to load something, sometimes it doesn't even work...

                                      His settings are no different to yours, so not sure why he can't post - I've refreshed his usergroup settings but he probably needs to clear his browser cache as well.

                                                Unfortunately Chris, you are likely to have been impacted by the loss of thankfulforkelly's posts - any topic he created was accidentally deleted so if you posted in any of them, you will have lost a few posts (he probably created a Kelly Clarkson chart topic for e.g. which you might've posted in at some point).

                                                        • So thankfulforkelly's posts are all gone and some topics lose all of their views out of a sudden - stevvy's personal chart being the latest one. He had hundred of thousands of views and has worked a lot to get there.

                                                          Is there a way to secure that things like this won't happen in the future? I know this is "just" an online forum, but some members - including me - do a lot to get where they / we are. Views may mean a lot to us, and so does our created topics and our posts. Just imagine if the same happens to me that happened to thankfulforkelly, my whole personal chart topic with data from over 8 years would be lost. This actually freaks me out if I'm being honest and it's not cool to think that this may happen at any time.

                                                          • I know post count can be manually altered (by administrators) on at least some forums (not sure if that's the case here). It obviously can't replace the posts that were deleted, but at least that would be a little fairer to the users who have had this happen through no fault of their own.

                                                            As for personal charts and things like that, it would be a good choice to create a back-up. I just created an archive thread for my personal chart (previously posted in the UKmixPARADE thread) for this very reason. At least it's more likely that such a thread will be retrievable from the Google cache than single posts in a large thread (if it ever disappears for some reason).

                                                              RayRay is saying he can post in threads he's been tagged, but not otherwise. I don't know why this would be?
