Question Data loss, or what?

A random question - has anyone else noticed, possibly sometime yesterday between (at least from what I know) something like 8PM GMT-2AM GMT (very roughly), loss of some posts you have posted or things you have changed at that time?

Does perhaps any of the admins know what happened? I am just curious and puzzled...

I know at least about the threads I've been posting in - basically the things I have posted/changed at that point are now gone (one post at Scarburg Mead Hall, one post at Scarburg Mead Hall discussion thread, followed by at least one post by Folwren, one PM I have sent, and the change of my signature). So... does perhaps somebody have a similar experience, have you noticed something like that happening in other threads in which you were posting?

And what might have been the reason? Some server-data-backup kicking off or whatever?

A good reminder, probably, that technology is not always as reliable as we often take for granted...?

I seem to have lost a post in this forum as well... I edited it, which worked, but later it vanished; and so far, it's still missing.

I wasn't going to note it, but since you brought it up

I posted at the Golden perch and I was sure that it had loaded and then when I checked later it had gone. I thought I was going mad (er). I did have to top up my PAYG dongle at about that time and thought maybe I had missed it not actually posting save that I was sure I had seen other RPG posts since Nogrods . I was busy this morning so I hadn't had time to repost but pio may be able to rescue "ghosts". Fortuanately in my case it wasn't a long or sophisticated post but.. I am glad I wasn't losing the plot ..as well as the posts...

Oh and if there is a benevolent admin playing around with the RPG Forum - I have noticed (and I don't think it is only my techno-idiocy here) that you can't rate threads in the RPG section anymore which is rather a shame, IMO, given the sustained effort needed to produce good RPGs. And it is a way of showing appreciation to the ensemble rather than to individual posters.

Yes, I noticed that too. I asked about it in the BD forum. Weird...

Also, during approximately in that time period, the smileys rearranged themselves, which is even weirder. It's not a big deal, but it's annoying...

Okay, so I'm not crazy (or at least any more so than usual). Weird.
