unregistered?

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Why is everyone unregistered all of a sudden? I finally cross the 900 post mark and then *boom* it's all gone (I had like 888 when the old AI went down).
post #2 of 50
Yeah, something's messed up. Notice you can't see the "email" or "profile" either on posts, just edit and reply.

it's the ubb again...

it ate some profiles (see the thread in here about private messages failing) and, apparently the rebuild failed.

sorry guys... it'll be fixed by tomorrow morning, probably.

You're unregistered too!!! Party in the streets!!! There's no authority! Woo hoo!! Just kidding. And if you lose our post counts, I'm at 905.

post #7 of 50

Jon,

Is this because of the "search database" rebuild you said you would do?

Didn't I warn you earlier not to unregister us all again?

78? Are you sure? I could have sworn you have more posts than EmAn, even. Maybe it was more like 7800?

This is the 5th time I've lost all my posts here using this name. Unbelievable.

At home, I could not login, but here at work since I have a cookie still set (I just reloaded my OS at home last night) it logged me in fine. HOpe you did not totally lose my profile.

If you did my post count was around 1200-1700. I lost track. Lets just make it 2000 and call it square. <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

seems concise and informative. what more would you like? the exact name of the profiles that crapped out? perhaps the model number of the machine it's running on?

sheesh, isn't that a bit demanding there zarate? <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

no.

who are you again ?
post #19 of 50
any idea when this'll be fixed. it doesn't make sense for me to change my sig several times a day if no one can even see it. i mean, i'll still chg it (dont worry about that), but i'd like if it were possible for people to see it. when are they coming back? any estimations?

post #22 of 50
Maybe a picture would help, mac's girl.

Nah, I remember ya.

Anyway, to keep you guys updated, you should know that the fix is beyond our reach. A certain someone at MacNN is just being a jerk and won't rebuild the database for us.

post #23 of 50
The plot thickens! Brad why are you "Brad" as the recent poster but "StarfleetX" in the thread!? Talk about a multiple personality, if you could call either one that...*drumroll* :cool: Sorry I couldn't resist. This is really weird! It seems like quite a few posters around here are all of a sudden having "identiy crises" with their "alter egos"...

In the threads themselves, posters are now listed by their original login names -- not their aliases -- because the threads think we don't have profiles (and thus no aliases). So, I am starfleetX, PowerDoc is Crouzet, Jamie is jamiemarshall, etc. Why the main forum pages still use our aliases, I don't know.

/still waiting for Mr. Cheese to do **something**

LOL. I think that Jonathan should 'arrange' for the ability to switch your publicly displayed name to be shut off.

Then you guys will be 'stuck'.

(I remember the time I switched my name just to piss off jamiemarshall )

sounds fine by me. some of us don't need to hide behind false names....

Wait, wouldn't that mean that I would be hiding behind a false name and jamiemarshall wouldn't? <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

Fixed. Enjoy.

Let Jonathan know if UBB craps on itself again and he'll pass it on.
