Okay -- it's been a crazy weekend, but the site is back up and running.
The good news is that all historical posts are intact. You can now posts new topics and carry on as normal.
The bad news is that anything done after noon Saturday has been lost. This includes posts, PM's, new account registrations, etc. Sorry about that.
Also, any accounts accidentally deleted Saturday morning remain deleted. Super sorry about that.
The not-as-bad-as-it-sounds news is that the deleted accounts can be reactivated. If you can't log into your old account, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
. This email must come from the email address registered on your account, which must match your userid.
In the subject of the email, type "reactivate your_userid" replacing your_userid with your userid. For example, I would type "reactivate dhempy". After sending the reactivate email
, you can register as normal here: http://www.locostusa.com/forums/ucp.php?mode=register
Be sure to use the exact same email address and userid that you originally used for this account. Usernames are CASE SENSITIVE, so be sure to register with the EXACT username you originally had!
Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
[UPDATE: 6/8/2010] All reactivated accounts have now been linked back to their existing posts. If your account hasn't been re-linked (check this under "User Control Panel" -> Total Posts) then please send a PM to me, with a link to one of your old posts and I'll fix you up.
