    Hi all - the forum should now be back to normal after a series of technical glitches.

    If you find any problems or missing data, please either report them in this thread or email them to [email protected]

    Thanks again for your patience, and we apologise profusely once again for any inconvenience that was caused whilst the site was broken.

    Posts made points given etc., are a bit more than slightly inaccurate :) But thank you to the team for getting the forum up and running again.

    Yes unfortunately we did have some difficulty re-importing that data as some of it was corrupted when our server broke.

    How severe are the inaccuracies? I did notice some numbers that seemed a bit off but I couldn't be sure without any correct data to refer back to.

    The short cuts at the top of each forum page are missing? New posts, watched threads etc

    The only other thing that I have just noticed, is that under the members name like to the right it shows me, it used to say what type of diabetes we have x

    Me neither. My messages are stating 2, 000 ish but I had over 6,000. @13lizanne you had over 12, 000 messages logged.
    However the format is hugely better. Of which I want to thank @Giverny and the team responsible. :)
    Just needs a few tweaks. :)

    Alerts vanished. I received 2 alerts before the forum shtu down that I've been trying to track down, but all that shows up are the awards.

    I switched back to the default style. I haven't decided whether to keep it or not. Can't stand the glaring red, and the dark (but similar) version is gone. :( And the default version is generic and seems to be missing some forum details (like rating ability, for one).

    ETA: Nope the rating ability is also gone in the glaring red version. But the default font is smaller and arder to read. Guess I may just need to dig out sunglasses when I visit the forum.

    No idea if I have more or less posts or ratings than yesterday - everything seems as was except I have no ratings buttons on others posts and as @CarbsRok says everyone seems to be demoted some have been even gone from legend to new member?

    I can't cope with the red version, but on the default version the font is too small.

    I can't see any details under the avatars other than the user name and "well known member" or whatever. No diabetes type (which is useful) and no ratings or number of messages. The number of messages was very useful as you could click on and see all that person's previous postings without having to go to their profile page..

    Also, the scrolling up and down arrows have gone awal.
