    I had about 100 posts and maybe more thanks go missing.

    As yet no explanation. I've re upped a few of the threads I've posted.

    Crap happens. I participate to be part of like minded people, the thanks are secondary.

    It really is terrible that so many good posts and threads have gone missing.

    Conspiracy, sabotage or glitch..?
    It certainly is a little suspicious, Gimers are mostly switched on!

    Anyway you carve it, not good. The "WTF?" thread is exactly what this is about.

    what threads have disappeared,

    I haven't seen anything gone,

    Just went and checked thru some persons posts and threads and all appear to be there,

    You are going to have to fill me in,

    did everyone get their caches cleared, find the gim, etc as requested?

    When hostgator did the migrate to a new server setup, we now have a new ip, and you have to be pointing at the right one or it will be muddled up.

    As I stated before, what I did was clear my bookmark, clear my gim history, shut down my browser,

    Then found gim on google, brought it up, signed in, and bookmarked that one.

    and I am having no issues,

    Please keep me advised if there is still stuff in hyper space, 'cause I haven't noticed it??????

    Scorp

    EDIT TO ADD:


    #$%@, I just tried to scroll thru the GD, and see what you guys are talking about,

    Hang in there, I need to find out wtf is going on????

    Guys,

    For some reason I had to go into my profile and reset the number of posts to show per page,

    I reset it to show all posts, and now it is working,

    I will keep looking around for other alien sightings also,

    also, when I did that the most recent posts/threads show, but then it does a time jump to mid March.

    I'm pretty sure there are posts missing still. I recall there being new posts to this thread that aren't showing up:
    http://www.goldismoney2.com/showthr...rom-Chaim-Greenberg-May-need-legal-help/page3

    Or can you kindly link to the shed of doom thread, I don't see it and I posted in it yesterday -- it isn't showing up in my subscriptions either.

    edit: ok, I see your update that you see the problem now.

    we won't know 'til later, but worst case scenario, we can use our mirror backup

    and reestablish everything,

    we also lost over 200 active members overnight........

    fwiw, I did log out and all that jazz, and it made no difference,

    there is something froggy and we need to figure it out,

    a few facts for you,

    awhile ago Hostgator says we have to migrate to a new server,

    I didn't think anything of it 'cause we were already on full RAID mirror backup, which was their reason to do so,

    we finally were forced to go, so we did

    couple of days ago, get pinged that US bombers are flying in an area that they only do with something on the horizon, + the little lears jetting about,

    now this, a random killing

    I say random, 'cause if you look at the threads in total, it isn't targeted, it is taking out just a bunch of stuff,

    What about all the new registrants I have provided the key to over the recent past, etc.

    Something is going on, and I am none too impressed to say the least,

    will get you answers after I know more...........

    in the meantime, going to DEFCON 3

    Hold on, I am showing more posts and thankyous. It would appear these posts and thankyous are getting up and wandering around in the night. I'm not responsible for any posts that just wander in. Finders keepers I say.

    add another,

    anyway, been checking some stuff, it seems as though when our system goes to 'mirror' to our backup, stuff begins to happen,

    this all relates back to when they made us switch server locations,

    it is going to take a bit to sort it out, but we will, and if we need to, will pull our stuff off the backup again to retrieve stuff if it doesn't come thru automatically,

    hang in there guys,

    Maybe a good thing?.......GIM is a site to pass the word along, a site where " crazies", conspiracy addicts, first hand accounts, those in the know and those not in the know....all rate equal here and personally give me a good indicator as to what the " state " of the US is in, where we are and where we are heading.....I am sure .gov monitors it for the same information."We" are a slice of America,stop whining and keep posting what is important to you.

    AgGal is hunting down a server issue,

    We found some error logs that she called 'ugly',

    and trying to source them now,

    we will see how it goes from there,

    until we can source the issue, related to that server swap, the fix cannot be seen,

    and yes, on the swap they also had a anti-virus spamd they wanted installed,

    still checking on that to see what gives there,

    My opinion is simple, we didn't have any issues until they created them,

    So they need to fix it..........

    Just thought that I would specifically mention that there appears to be almost 5 pages of postings from the Random picture thread. Last post now is #2757 by Goldhedge. Last night there were 97 pages (by my settings which I can't find the location to change the # of post per page controller) when I signed off last night.

    Somebody sneeze to hard on the server?

    Our Host says our servers have no issues. However a possible software bug has been identified (cPanel) but no ETA on a fix. Discussing with tptb on our next step.

    Good observation. Something very strange (only cause we dont know exactly yet what is causing issues), definitly have seen more threads come back and some of our statistics (number of posts, thanks, etc were being reported again but not the correct total - very weird).

    QWAK,AgAuGal,I don't know it this is related to the problem BUT in that bitcoin thread and only that thread --- when ever I went to read the last post -- I had to start at the TOP and scrowel to the bottom every time --- it did NOT go to the LAST post -- like ALL the other threads do.:hmmmm2:

    My logic and computer programing logic to not interphase well:hmmmm2: BUT -- if there is a concistent annomily then there is always a probability of flaw in the wiring of an electronic circut and since computer programs are a little like hard witing only in ciber space --- could there posably be some sort of a TROJEN HORSE or WORM that was in a post on a thread that ALTERS not only that thread but could imbed it self in others?:hmmmm2:

    Been a long time since I did any trouble shooting on electronics BUT odd things that happen always have a cause!:idea::thumbs_up::cheerful:

    I would not have a clue what to look for as computer code just looks like funney wall paper to me -- gives me head achs just looking at it.:ahhhhh::hmmmm2:

    the software with the bug has been identified - cPanel, however no one has reported making any changes to GIM software other than new members for a couple of weeks so I am still not sure when the cPanel bug got introduced or if it is really the cause, just speculation right now. Nowadays who knows with all the sophisticated hackers out there in virtual space...

    Okay! Who stickied my thread? In all my years I never produced a sticky thread. Makes me feel I did something unseemly. I'll need to go shower.
