Aaaaargh... my thread disappeared!!!
« on: 23/12/2011 20:31:17 »
I recently discovered that my hyperthread about vitaminD&Leukemia...
became INVISIBLE (to my PC I mean) after the recent graphic 'maquillage'
of the Science Forum.
Is it dead or is it just a temporary Vitamin D 'black out'?

The changes were more than cosmetic ...

There are a few teething problems ... If you notice any please tell me and I will see what I can do.

I had already noted a bunch of blank messages on the other post.

It seems to be a widespread problem with a big chunk of the archives missing.  I'm hoping that they will eventually be restored, but I would imagine that it could take some time.  I hope a partial-restore is possible, restoring the old topics, while not deleting the new.

They may just be anemic.

If you click on your name to "view the profile of", you can see all your posts ("Show Posts"). Hopefully you will find they are all still there. However, for reasons unknown, when you select them, some of them don't link back to the original topic in the particular forum.

Odd...
I found a topic that I started:

My post starting the topic at « on: August 09, 2011, 11:11:02 am » seems to be there.

At least one of my replies is there.

So, Geezer is probably right.
It is likely that the full text has been preserved.
But, it is impossible to access the original topics at this time.  One can still find one's original replies, but it may take some hunting.  Except, if one does find one's personal replies, one still can't get back to the original chain, or see anybody else's comments.

Perhaps a re-linking/re-indexing of the website will fix it.

Anyway, it seems to be a good sign that the topics still seem to exist, just we can't get to them.  Hopefully that will be fixed shortly.  I can certainly be patient.
