All,

As you have probably noticed, for the past 23 hours, the site was unavailable due to an unexplained database crash. I worked with the makers of vBulletin and our hosting company, HostPC, to get the problem corrected, but unfortunately, several of the database tables were corrupted beyond repair. As a result, the site had to be restored from its latest backup, which was on 1/5. Thus, all posts, registrations, etc. between then have now have been lost, but I think that's a relatively small price to pay to be back up and running.

I'd really like to thank Joe at HostPC for doing a great job in doing his part to get the site restored as soon as humanly possible. He deserves a huge kudos for his efforts. Anyway, as as result of this, I will be making much more frequent backups moving forward in the event something like this ever were to happen again. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Boss

Thanks for all the hard work Boss.

This seems so weird. I don't know where to start again.

Has this ever happened before?

Maybe we could reset RZ to December 1 and Willy Tavares doesn't become a Red.

As others have said, thanks for the hard work. It's a shame, because we've had some pretty good discussions the last week or so.

Thanks for the hard work.

For a minute there I felt like Jon Gruden, I thought maybe I was permanently banned from the site without my knowledge.

Good to know that hasn't happened (yet :))

I am not a computer expert, but I believe that the site crashed because the server had reached its limit of Adam Dunn posts. :D

Thanks for getting it back up! :beerme:

Or it felt sorry and wanted to give Taveras a break from all the bashing he's taken. :lol:

Stinks that I have to reregister and, when I went to visit the site, couldn't get to the posts and find out what was going on. Everything was set to private. But I'm glad to be back...

I thought their was a major breakthrough and we signed Manny and the board couldn't handle all that excitement!

I too thought something major had happened at first. Went around to all the other sites panning for Reds news. Nothing doing.

I am glad to be back, though... even if Willy Taveras is still a Red and the only "news" is the Jonny Gomes signing.

Thanks, Boss!

Losing a couple of weeks of content is a major disaster for a content-driven site like Redszone.

Both many condolences and mucho kudos to Boss....

...several of the database tables were corrupted beyond repair.

No more letting the database hang out with Puffy. :D
