We were down today, unexpectedly, for several hours due to some issues related to data needing to be restored. Specifically, we had issues with the Free Forex Trading Systems subforum. The data has been recovered successfully, but unfortunately, the recovery may have resulted in a very small number posts being lost.
If you made a thread/post/reply anywhere in the Forums between 8:30 and 9AM ET, your posts will most likely be lost. Due to how our recovery and restore process works, there will always be a small window where recovery is impossible or too time-intensive.
We do apologize for the downtime. Please be assured that the specific actions that caused the need for downtime will not be possible in the future as we move to more stable and redundant infrastructure and software.
Let me know if you have any questions or issues related to this event.
UPDATE: If you registered for an account during the 30 minute window mentioned above, there is a chance you will need to re-register. Please contact us if you have issues logging in with an account created today, during that time.
