Please discuss this announcement here:
Many of you were experiencing problems with the site tonight, we had some data base corruption, I believe (hope
) we fixed the problem.
I don't think we lost any data, but there were several duplicate post and threads, which we are in the process of trying to fix.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience this problem may have caused. I know how frustrating it is when you have a post all ready to go and poof, you get an error message.
We are in the process of rebuilding the search index, so the search results may not be the most accurate for the next 24 hours. Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Thanks for everyone's patience through this process. It took nearly 2 days for the server to re-index all the post (nearly 2 million) during that time, I had to limit the servers processing power to the forum so it would not crash the server and have to start all over again
I know it's frustrating, believe me, I feel your pain. The server appears to be running smoother since the changes and search indexing is done.
Hopefully, you will notice the improvements, it appears that the last few posters have
Thanks again for all your comments and feedback and understanding, have a good weekend!
Growth is good
but sometimes growing pains sometime are not fun
Looks like we need to begin shopping for more servers
