    What are you crying about? If getting three pathetic likes is too difficult, there is premium membership and other paid market places. This will save you time for a little bit of money (it's a small drop in the ocean if you depend on it for your business).

    As an owner of many forums, you aren't very clued up if you don't understand why such a system is needed. Something is needed to curtail spam and have some level of quality. Read more and you'll actually understand how effective it has been (have a look for Shawn's posts about more traffic, sales, etc).

    I don't think you understand the scale of DP or have ever worked with such large databases and their migration. Credit to Shawn for what he has achieved (regarding recovery). Some people would have just given up and called it a day, especially if they thought the backup was screwed, too.SEMrush

    Oh, speaking of backups, I just triple checked that the daily backups are working properly (hah), and they are. :)

    Worst day of your life so far. Haha!

    Don't sweat it. In 2 weeks nobody will even remember. And good thing you had some sort of backup lying around. You'd be surprised how many people ain't got no backup whatsoever...

    '' for whatever reason those were not running on the new servers ''

    What do you use to automate backups? I would be going all Dilbert if this happened to me.

    Such situations does happen in this case I'm little sorry that some good content was forever lost. However, we must learn from the mistakes. I had a situation in which the database in some of my websites refused to cooperate. It is good to secure things for the future.

    We're sorry to hear that. I know it's a hard pain of losing stuff online, because once it's gone and we have no backup, then it's gone forever. A sad thing of online world :(.

    Nice, and now I'm not sure it would be a good decision to ever post on DP again as for example, My long post is gone along with all my effort, trophies and likes. Good job staff. lol. See you never again ;)

    I like the Old DP Vbulletin version compare to Xenforo. Everything loads slower in the new forum. Now, I notice DP like having very few new threads and the tweets and facebook likes had drop significantly. It is also wrong to ask for 3 likes, cause this cause lesser threads to be created. In the Old DP, there is no 3 likes yet I've not seen any spam before. If there are spam threads or posts, it must be very few spam.
