Downtime

As some of you may have noticed, we've had trouble with the site thepast two days. Files for the post and pm tables were corrupt and it was causing a small number posts and pms to get lost. Some of you may have also noticed that you were unable to search on any keywords in the search screen. I took down the site database this morning around 10am EST and repaired the tables. I apologize for any inconvenience caused. If anyone has any further problems please submit a trouble-ticket ("Misc" on the drop-down menu, then "Support").

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

Now it appears that I can do both again. You can close my trouble ticket.

I don't know if this is all part of the same problem but I have noticed that when I pull up a user profile, where it used to say "viewing X" or "Private messaging" or whatever that user was doing over in the upper right corner, everyone says "offline" even when there green dot is clearly lit in the forums and they appear to be actively posting.

At first I thought maybe I was catching users as they went offline but after it continued to happen I thought there may something wrong.

I can submit a trouble ticket if you would like.

Okay fixed. It was actually a VBulletin setting (who's online). I turned it off to see its impact on server load (none) and forgot to turn it back on.

Corrupt database post table. I became very well aware of it when I came in the morning. VBulletin sent me over 13,000 emails overnight. Took nearly 2 hours to download them.
