Migration stage one completed, but the changeover caused the database to change names...I didn't have internet last night due to a lightning storm here, but I went to a fast food joint this morning and changed the database over.

Currently I believe the CWBP is down and I'll get to that soon. But there may be more intermittent downtime for the next week. Sorry for the inconvenience guys. Hang in there.

I'm not 100 percent certain but I think a lot of yesterdays posts may have been lost as well. I'm looking into it but I can't promise that I'll be able to bring them back. Wow this was worse than I thought.

And of course it went down just after I grabbed the new posts list, and found something that looked extremely interesting that I hadn't read before. And of course now I can't remember what that was.

But hey, the forums are back, the exchange of ideas continues, so all is well again. Three cheers for Arcana!

Thank you for all the hard work and effort you and the other Admins and community leaders put in to this forum! It really is the best forum for cartography on the web because of what you do.

Hi everybody,

unfortunatly I was a casualty of migration, so here I am in my second incarnation, hopefully only temporary. But since I could dissappear and all my post for half a year with me, I guess it would be prudent if everybody checked to see if someone/something is missing, so Arcana can get as many bug-reports as possible... no, not to bug him (pun intended) but to help him the the webhost to find out what went wrong. :)

@ tilt - Your Dwarf fort lite challenge entry is still there. Are you saying your login and user id was lost? That sounds more like we lost a portion of hard drive. :( Hopefully, you will come back because I liked the other tilt but I'm not so sure about this one, LOL

And btw, I'm not a fan of this typing black letters on brown, it's hard to read as I'm typing and my eyes are bad enough already. :O

Thank you again Arcana for all the effort you are exerting right now to get things back to normal.

Hmm...the editor.css file was reverted...I think there's a stylevar for that now RobA...so you shouldn't have to change the editor.css file...just find the stylevar.

Done, I hope.

I'm working with Arcana and RobA in fixing it.. .and on the third day... oops... madness back... ;)

Yes, well done Rob and Arcana. Being one of the attachment casualties, apparently, I haven't noticed any difference to my guild experience so far bar the short outage. You have done stellar work to get it back in shape.
