My apologies to the membership.
In our ongoing attempt to clean things up as part of the Migration, last week we deleted a bit more than 1700 members. Now, MOST of those members were members who had email addresses that didn't work at all (resulted in permanent failures when we sent email to them). But... a FEW were actual, legit, members. Like, ah... ME. And Scott.
Being the SQL Server animals that we are, the only way we could figure out to restore those few legit users was to restore the entire database from a backup made before the delete... that backup was made on 6 August at 2AM Eastern USA Time.
So, that's what we did.
Any posts (or people who joined, or membership changes made) this week have therefore been "lost."
This is entirely our fault (well, technically, it's entirely MY fault.... but I'll use the "royal we" in this case to deflect part of the blame), and we regret the inconvenience.
May this be the only bump in the road that we suffer in the migration process,
