Will the Steorn Forum come back as it was with all the posts more or less intact or will all that wonderful prose go into the dustbin of history?

I have a strange feeling that our posts are gone.

This is why we added the "Saved Posts" area back in 2006 -- a shame it wasn't better used.

Well a lot of posters made private copies but mostly of threads that interested them. And few made a load of copies when threads started disappearing.

They're welcome to paste anything they think other users would find interesting.

I'd stay away from a copy of 'count to a million' and 'last poster wins' Smile

Filtering out the junk would be helpful as well for users who just want the 'meat' of the thread. Some of those went on for ages.

A summary followed by the raw copy would be a reasonable compromise for the 'purists' just be sure to break up the copy into reasonably sized chunks.

Apologises if I caused you concern. But I was only being tongue in cheek to encourage villagers to read the thread hopefully they might 'cough up' some old posts they have saved.

Howdy Trim -- that's *really* going to confuse the poor users who haven't followed the related thread on the moletrap forum!

Anyhow, I got your meaning, I was just playing along. Sorry if it didn't come across that way, humor isn't my specialty.

I'm sure that's OK. Despite his own opinion it is not Trim's speciality either!

Anyone know what happened to the moletrap forum? It's been down for a few days now.

I suspect the forum will reopen unharmed.

Oh, yes. The Steorn Forum Will Reopen Tomorrow Morning:
http://www.steorn.com/forum/

All our user accounts will be restored.

There isn't any reason to believe that all the old posts will remain intact. I have a feeling that things are going to start fresh post-wise.

Apparently my ability to see into the future isn't very good today.

Looks like a bunch of old threads have returned.

Still won't be able to log in until tomorrow morning.
