Thank you BB for being so awesome and taking care of this site :)

(I had no idea what to do with myself while the site was down.)

User CP page is giving a database error when I try to access it. Nul link possibly?

ok, give that a go. I restored just that one table of the database. It may be a week old. Not entirely sure what it contains but I'm sure we'll find out.

Edit: Oh, it just contains Visitor Messages. Shouldnt be a huge loss if something is a bit out of date there.

Let me know if you notice anything else!

Sweet mother of god; I even got messages from folks on Official who were worried about us. Craziness.

I keep getting emails about subscribed threads since the downtime even after changing the settings in user cp.

Word: lol, as least some people still visit here :)

Jiggit, there could be 2 reasons for this:
1) the emails are very old and the server is only processing them now. Check the contents to see if it's a recent post or not. If it is a very old notification just delete it.
2) some data was lost, including user cp thread notification settings. These were reverted to a previous date. Check your settings to make sure they are correct. If not, change them.

Oh yeah, oh yeah. My tongue feels so good deep in your brownie hole, BB.

Yeah, the site so rarely crashes. He must be some sort of wizard.
