Is the database for US board backed up?

Might we end up loosing everything again, after all the US board has already had a major crash. I can't believe there were no back up's of the UK database.

Perhaps the question is best posed on Tech Support - I'd guess that either they would know or know who to ask.

No, to my knowledge the US Boards aren't backed up - infact, posts have been lost in the past. It takes a ton of resources as it is to just run boards this size, let alone stretch even further to doing backups - and that's not even touching on the time it would take.

I suggest if there is an extra special post you like, save it as a web-archive on your PC and create your own back-up.

Angie, what exactly is your problem? Have you downloaded the i-chat plugin? How far are you getting before you hit the problem?

Actually, I just checked the Tech Board in order to bump the question again, and there has been a reply that might help...so, just incase you haven't seen it....
