    Okay, I dunno what's wrong :( This happened to everyone. The only thing I can think of is something happened to the boards and everything was set back to the last date Charlie backed up the database (around the last of January).

    Well, if that happened (What Tommy wrote) will it be fixed? Because my entire account was deleted.

    Well, if what I am guessing is true, then no, there is no way to get it back. :( At least none that I can think of

    Yikes! And we're missing most of a month! So I have some stuff to restore . . .
    And I'm no longer marked as "team" either . . .
    :(

    The board is back if. If you have concerns other than the ones mentioned here, please contact a staff member.

    Probably not, however don't rule it out yet. We trusted the host, who took nightly backups. If not for Charlie, we wouldn't even had this much - we would have needed to start from scratch. But at this point, it seems that we're here to stay.

    Sadly, no.

    Many changes have been re-made, and Mary you are now a team member again.

    Each night's backup overwrites the previous nights, so there was only a monthly backup and then the nightly backup. The nightly backup didn't work :(
