Thanks for the hard work guys -- this is an excellent community that deserves to live on.

Jude, any chance of the PM's being salvaged? That would be awful if they were lost for good.

Thanks,

Drew, I'm afraid not. The PM data that we were able to recover to this point is the best we could do, and we're sorry about that. If you had PM e-mail notifications turned on (which I suggest everyone should choose to do in User CP), then you will have been e-mailed with the full text of the PMs you receive (not send).

Also, in light of what happened, I would suggest that everyone download their PM's from time to time, which can be done in three different formats on the main PM page (.csv, .txt, .xml).

Again, we're sorry about that, Drew.

If someone hasn't already asked.....

Jude,
Thanks so much for getting the site back up, I didn't realize how much I missed it.

Anyhoo...
In case someone hasn't already brought it up, e-mail notifications for thread posts and PM's are not happening.

I'm getting both of those e-mail notifications. When we did a fresh re-install of vBulletin, all settings were reverted to default. Make sure you have your settings in User CP set to auto-subscribe you to threads that you participate in (if that's what you're referring to), and to e-mail-notify you of PMs.

If you're referring to all of the subscriptions you had prior to the outage, then, unfortunately, those were all lost (see my first post in this thread).

Thanks for coming back, man.

I posted my problem in the new sticky you just made.

Thanks to all for the tireless efforts to get head-fi up and running again!

That little notice about the 16GB of RAM not being enough really drove home how huge the rebuilding task would be, so I waited with great patience and understanding.

I just want to thank you for all your effort on our behalf, especially over a holiday week (is your wife still talking to you?). I imagine with what was involved, many wouldn't have put the hours as you for a site that's not your business, but a hobby. It did not go unnoticed. It's nice to be back.

That's ok, you tried your best with what you had to work with, and that's all we can ask for.

Good luck with the rest, and thanks again to everyone working behind the scenes!

  • I did not miss Head-Fi
  • I did not feel sad
  • I did not check a hundred times a day to see if it was back
  • I did not suffer withdrawal symptoms
  • I did not miss anyone
  • I did not wonder what anyone was 'eating' 'drinking' or 'listening to' right now

I did not. . . oh, who am I kidding.

YAY - it's back!
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks Jude for all the hard work.

Now onto the conspiracy theory.

Who had the most to gain from this outage?
New Zune's with positive buzz released.

I think Steve Jobs must have been involved. How could it just be coincidence?

Was worried the forum would be gone for good, glad it returned.

we can't thank you enough
post #314 of 353
Head-fi is back, my profile is still here. That's all I could ask for. Thank you!

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. You are a great example to us all. This may not be your job but you certainly took it on as one!
