Default Annoucement: Downtime on Saturday 11.23.13, restoring missing usernames etc (AK370Z)

Dear THE370Z members

This past Saturday was one of the most stressful days I have had in a while. Before I go any further, I’d like to honestly apologize for THE370Z downtime on Saturday 11.23.13. We have tried our best to minimize it (downtime) but it just wasn’t happening. For that, I’d like to apologize to each and every one of you . I should also mention that I have posted an announcement on our Forum FB page but then I have realized that not everyone is a fan of our page or have FB. I usually post updates on our FB page etc when forum goes down, so if you have a FB I highly recommend you to “LIKE” the page. I do not spam. Page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The37...14363708603179

Our main goal for this downtime was to fix some of the false “private message notification issue” and restore those members account (dmhenderson, TheDreamer, DJTodd, Jasonle, gurneyeagle etc). We had a strategy and some things we wanted to try. But soon things started going NOT according to plan and at one point we were STRONGLY considering plan B which was to restore the forum from (weekly) backup which meant that we would lose all data since last Sat . However, thanks to a fellow Nissan Enthusiast (a Zenki S14 enthusiast to be exact ) and his thinking outside the box, not only we were able to bring the forum back to how it was before, we were able to recover all those missing accounts! Whoooot! That feeling of relief when we brought back the forum perfectly and the missing usernames – can’t be described! If you’re one of those members who had their username missing and I have asked you to make a new (temporary) username for the time being, please pm or visitor message me that username. I’d like to remove it. Also, you should LOG IN with your old username. If you're having problem, please let me know.

I opened the forum on Sunday at 1:05 pm EST. Things have been working well. I was aware of the database error this morning but they should be gone now. If you’re still getting them, feel free to pm me.


Thank you for your continued support and patience. Thank you for not giving up on me. I can seriously say Saturday was hell but I’m glad that everything turned out good.

Thank you for all your hard due diligence with the forums AK!

BTW, I sent you a PM just before the forums went down, did that PM get lost in the shuffle?

Thank you for the hard work! When the forum went down, it was like the end of the world for me, because I do a LOT of researches on it since i'm saving for a 370z. You got it backed up and running. Thanks again!

AK, if you ever need server help feel free to hit me up. I have worked professionaly as a linux sysadmin for 7+ years. I worked for one of the largest shared web-hosting companies (biggest after EIG and godaddy in the U.S.) and I was the only guy at the company who did data/raid recovery. I also am very familiar with PHP/MySQL( not just managing stuff but actual dev/database design) as well. I run Stepmania Online as well as host many sites for friends/family.

I recommend that all regular users Like the Facebook page or otherwise set it to notify you. Very low traffic and it's nice to know that somebody is aware of the problem when the site is down.
