Searching for an old post, the forum is telling me the topic does not exist. I notice there are now only nine pages of threads in General Chat. Has the fat been trimmed or is this a temporary "glitch" ?

A-ha, yes, well spotted. The elusive Blakey warned myself & Mr E Leyland that Autoshite was getting extremely close to breaking point (for want of a technical term), so he had to purge some of the older threads on the forum. Apologies for not letting you know, but we didn't realise until yesterday morning.I guess its just the same as driving your Marina Estate down the M5 on your holidays & you can only get 45mph out of it - you've got to throw out half of your luggage & ditch the roofrack to restore her to her former glory - ie 60mph tops. Or something like that.

Oh.....all those wonderful spots that would have disappeared :cry: Can we have a warning next time so we can save the photos? Will start to do that anyway.

Yes, will try to give you prior warning in future. Also, m'colleague Mr Leyland is hoping to teach himself how to do more teccy stuff so we will rely less on Blakey & therefore have more control over things like this.

So all those past topics are lost for all time? :(Edit: and Craig you appear to have lost your Leicestershite thread, hope you have a backup of your spots? I can't bring up your Channel Island one either. Fortunately every picture I've ever posted or saved is either sitting in my very large photobucket account or on my PC! :wink:

Fear not Rich for I have copies of every single photo I took of rubbish old vehicles in and around the fine city of Leicescescester. Unfortunately what I haven't got is a record of the informative comments received in response to the pictures from members of this board, which is a shame seeing as some of them were hilarious.I had been meaning to set up my own spots website like Datsuncherry's so as if the worst happened I could still provide a link to the pics. Perhaps there is an Autoshite forum back-up on a server somewhere?

That sounds like a good idea, if I had any clue how! It still wouldn't restore those irreplaceable comments though. :?

Chaps please don't get disheartened just yet, we are doing our best to get the old forum topics restored, there is still hope. My own entire Spotting thread is in there too! More news as it develops.

Hope you can 'find' it back, somewhere in cyberspace.I've put links to my photo collections in my sig, although these are rather messy, unorganised heaps of pics, spots, old archive stuff etc. I hope to set up a good flickr account soon, when I finally scan my brochures, old mags etc.

Early signs of data retrieval are looking quite hopeful. Also we are iminently buying a great big fat arse external hardrive for storing backups onto because of this.More as it develops.

Bad news indeed. I really enjoy searching for some random word and reading the threads that come up. Fingers crossed for getting it all back.

It's the Wayback Machine.You can put any web address into it into it and look at previous versions of the page. You can even see websites that no longer exist. Some sites are more complete than others.

This is intriguing! The board now only has 9 pages of threads going back to Oct 07 - yes? But if I click on my name (or my profile button) & then click on 'find all posts made by MrRegieRitmo' or words to that effect I get 74 pages of threads going back to Sep 06 which is around the time I first started posting. So what I'm saying is, although I'm undoubtedly missing posts, in light of this, I can't have lost very many! I guess it's another form of archiving? Anyway, do you also fair alot better if you click your 'find all posts made by......' link? Fingers crossed. :)

http://autoshite.com...ighlight=#30178Oriental Offerings....KruJoe has made 169 posts & when I click to find all the posts he's made I get 169 results. In other words KruJoe is one of the lucky ones, he's lost absolutely nothing! :D Having been positive about it last night, I've just worked out however, that I've lost 1430 posts! :cry: (only 1102 remain)

Yep, my earliest remaining post was made in Jan 07 and is only there because it's in a topic that's had replies more recently than October. I'm wondering whether to set up a communal Webshots or Fotopic gallery that any Autoshite member can copy their spots to, but wouldn't want it to undermine the forum.
