Hello Everybody,
I wanted to reach out to our community and ask for everyone's help. We have had a lot of people asking how they can help keep kratom legal.

You guessed it! This section is for general discussion that may or may not have anything to do with Kratom.

Good day. We have had a batch of posts (from about 10 days ago, or around there), that I made to different forums here, that are now all gone.

Some topics which I was planning to re-visit and follow up on, are altered. Some of my post responses (to several different forum posts), are simply gone. In addition, I have made some edit(s) to one or more of my posts from a few weeks ago (a review, etc), and the edits are totally gone too.

Some of these posts where very simple, or thank you's, or small edits to existing posts. I am quite sure that the content was OK in nature, and did not violate TOS or Rules.

They are simply gone! I do not have copies of these posts. I would say that I know of at least 4 posts for sure, and 1 edit for sure. This has happened. I only noticed today, because I was revisiting threads I had responses within.

I understand that there is a transfer or migration taking place of this website? Data was lost.

I am not sure how anyone else didn't notice that there stuff was gone too, as I don't see any posts on the subject anywhere.

Wow, with all of these new threads I am creating (no PM ability, lost posts, etc), I am starting to feel like a real complainer here. Sorry.

Confused as usual,

bill

Ocholoco: I will call the programmer who's doing the work this afternoon and see what he can tell me.

I'll get back to you when I know more.

Hi Ocholoco Bill,

The website is STILL under construction. Much is still ongoing. I’m sure your missing posts are safely misplaced for now, so I wouldn’t worry about anything you wrote. As for going BACK to read stuff, it will help if you describe HOW you are looking to reread posts. What route are you using to read old posts? Search?

EDIT: Paul has no updates yet. These issues HAVE been discussed and brought to staff attention prior to this thread. I’ll do my best to help you find what you’re looking for. Just holler. If you wish, email me directly. You’ll find my address where the private messages tab used to belong

OK, thank you for the reply Paul. I know how database roll backs work. I also know how migrations go, when you move your databases from one server to another. So, this is likely what has happened. It was a timing thing. I don't need the posts back. I Just feel bad for people who probably think I don't care about their responses, by not following up on their questions / comments. No biggie though.

I didn't expect that the forum software was opensource though. I thought it was freeware, which contains administrator types of controls (formatting, access control, etc). Nothing more.

I will leave it to you and the developers then!

I also like the green color Roadcat. Kind of looks like Kratom to me. (L)

Thanks for your understanding of the situation, Ocholoco. I'm still waiting for a reply to address this concern. It might be possible, but I wouldn't hang my hopes on it.

I can mention it again to the programmer, but whether he will implement it is beyond my control.
