All of Primal’s posts (23) seem to have changed to "under repair." It bumped a few threads back to the top. He/she had some pretty good, well-thought questions, so having the answers without the questions is kind of a disservice to the forum.

Anybody know what happened?

Wow, that’s a first.
Very mysterious.

hey guys! Sorry I haven’t been able to check my email/forums until today. I’m still in Europe but should be back by Sunday if everything runs smoothly with my connection at Heathrow… And thats a big IF.

In any event, Cil, it seems that the spam issue in the pub was taken care of? Let me know what the user name of the culprit/bot is and I’ll ban him. Also, when I get back i’ll be sure to look into the mysterious ‘under repair’ issue which needs to be taken care of, although it may be a result of the work being done on the forums…

From what I understand (and I’ll let the cat out of the bag here) the boards are in the process of being upgraded by the tech guys. I haven’t been able to see the new software in action just yet, but from what I hear it will be very clean and efficient. The purpose of this is to solve our speed and lock up issues while keeping the integrity of the forums intact. Note that no usernames, messages, archives, forums, or animals should be harmed in the process. If Primal’s under repair issue was a result of the upgrade I’m hoping it was a fluke, but regardless I will email the tech guys about it.

But, more on this to come when I get back this weekend.

See you guys on Sunday.

And again, thanks for all your help while I’m away!

I am leaving from New York, NY and traveling for 64 days

Good luck getting out of Heathrow, Mim!
And good news about the tech guys.
I thought you took care of the spam in the Pub because it disappeared, maybe my man Walter took care of it.
