I miss everything too. It's a shame I didn't have any backups and the host didn't follow through with their promise to make nightly backups. Hopefully we'll be able to continue on even without all the old useful posts.

I don't understand why anyone would try that. Someone with enough knowledge of comics and money to buy that would definitely do their research and be very careful before buying it. There's also the fact that eBay and PayPal both offer buyer protection on such things.
I usually get my issues about a week late. I have it set to delay shipping since Archie and Jughead are released a week apart.

I spent most of the day getting this site back up. Good to be back finally though I'm still really disappointed that we lost over 10 years of posts and other content.

There's a new gallery here that you can start loading up. It's different than the old one but hopefully simpler to use.

Two completely different systems. This one was written specifically as an add-on for the forum. The other one was a standalone gallery script that was integrated with the forum via a separate addon.

It's unlikely such a thing will happen again. I'm with a different host now and am paying for an automated backup service.

Good to see everyone again! Keep spreading the word and hopefully we'll get more people back soon.

The new gallery is live! Just click on "Media" in the menu to get started.

I'm happy to report that the forum is finally back online after nearly a week. Unfortunately, all posts and other data was lost due to a series of hardware failures and no backups (the host claimed to do nightly backups but for whatever reason that option was never enabled on the server).

Everything should be pretty much the way it was, although the gallery will be returning later (I've opted to go to a more integrated gallery option this time rather than using an external system as we had before), and I haven't yet decided if I'm going to put a wiki back up since it wasn't used much to begin with.

Please let me know if you run into any problems or have any questions. Have fun!
