Well folks, good news and bad news.

The bad news: A database error occurred, that corrupted about 2.5k posts.

The good news: I have rolled back the database to last night's backup.

That means anything from about 2am PST this morning to about 5pm PST, is gone.

That's posts, user accounts, everything in the forum section; photopost and reviews should be ok.

I apologize for the problems this may create.

I was about to make a "wtf is up?" thread, lol. I noticed several replies of mine were missing... including a new thread that I made today with pics. I'm glad everything is back to normal now.
