That's odd...

Only able to visit the forums sporadically, sorry.

That is strange indeed... Nathan, I suggest running the recount and rebuild tool...

    It would appear that pages 2 and 3 of the Q&A database are missing as well ..... QA 0001 thru QA0026 are no longer available .....
    Hopefully they are still on the server and can be replaced .

    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

    I think Dilbert's an Oracle... He foretold that there would be an event in which backups would come in handy...  :o

      Disturbingly, I did. However, an Oracle I cannot claim to be; if I was, I wouldn't have the right to say "I told you so". :P On a more serious note, I knew that after I lost QA0035 that YaBB was not to be trusted with pure information like that. It can and will be corrupted. Furtheremore, I predict that YaBB will do it again in the future. I have lost faith in YaBB's ability to accurately and safely store these precious threads. However, there is good news.

      True to my word, I have kept backups of the FAQ threads. I don't have all the FAQ threads backed up; however, I have a great deal of them. Of my threads, I have 17 threads, all YaBB code preserved. Of 2k_dummy, I have one I cristened QA0020.5 because we skipped his by mistake. I have 5 of Flame's threads, including the Golden Rule. Of Hopester, I have 4: QA0002, QA0003, QA0007, and QA0009. I have blackberry's QA0033. I also have dl65's QA0019a. I have QA0028, courtesy of GX1_Man. From robpomeroy, I have QA0039 and one I interestingly labelled QA0009. (QA0029?)

      I have the power to restore these threads to a fully functional thread in the FAQ Database. However, I am choosing to wait until after this mess is "repaired". Upon normal functionality, expect to see some threads by me with kudos to the original author. :)

      Dilbert, don't worry about my software FAQ; I've kept a more-or-less up to date backup which I'll restore if necessary.

      (due to lack of humor, I am changing my post)
      What is there?!?! AN INFINATE NUMBER OF YaBB BUGS?!?!
      Seriously, someone needs to backup the forum and update it. In fact, I'm marching my poor old IE browser down to the YaBB website now to find out the version number! (here I go)

      Follow up:
      UGH! I WAS SURE THAT THERE WAS A NEWER VERSION. Its just 2.1 right now. Oh well, someday, somewhere (mars), there will be a YaBB forum with no bugs.
