Anything and everything goes in here... within reason.

If they can find a backup of the old database, or the host still has it, then we will get out posts and stuff back.
If not, I presume we'll be able to PM the admins and ask for our post counts back.
however, the obvious problem is that someone can just come on and say "yeah i had 3000 posts" and could be lying. So Im sure that the admins will find an old copy, at least so they can verify peoples post counts
If they find the backup to verify what we say, then perhaps they will restore our post counts. Who really cares that much, though? It's only a post count...it isn't important (except for getting into usergroups, I suppose...but in that case, just keep posting until you reach the minimum).

I hope the database wasn't deleted. If so, I'll kill that dinosaur! Anyways, I had just gotten about 1820 posts and I was really happy. And now their all gone! Noooooo!

For me it is worse. I had somewhere between 2510 - 2535 posts so I was Beyond Godly.
The people who I feel are the worse off IMO are ChromeFox and Lillie since they both had the POF rank which if I remember right requires that you must have 10000 posts to have the POF rank.

Thats right. 10K for POF level. Its a lottta posts. o.o
Same name, i can't remember exactly my post count, wasn't really paying attention to it all that much.
But... if its any good news to any of you (although i've already posted this)
I do have records of postcounts of the top 200 up to May1st.

I don't remember my exact post count. I believe I was well over 3000, though. I don't think the post counts are all that important, although, I was quite proud of mine and wouldn't mind having it back.

I really won't be happy if we don't get the old database back, I was at 4900, always at WBG.

Should you care more about the content of your posts (and helping people), rather than your astronomically large postcount?
Mon May 31, 2004 7:58 am
Honestly, I can still help people whilst having an not quite astronomically high count. Yes I am Materialistic. I wannit back >.<

it's ok chris, it's ok, we'll have our posts back in no time

I argued forever against the whole "no post count" idea, but now I really see its merits. It's kind of nice.

These forums are most definately temporary. Things will return to as they were, but to what degree, I couldnt honestly say. Dont expect too many changes. Unplanned ones anyway...
Oh, and wrong place. I know we've been away for a couple of weeks, but you cant have all forgotten what Site Disc is for :wink:

I think I had about 8,250 posts. If we get our posts back, great! If not, eh, life goes on. I mean, I didn't join the forums in the first place just to get a lot of posts!
