I note that you folks somehow managed to 'loose' your last forum (how careless
), and all the data in it.
I would suggest that to stop this happening again you 'backup' this forum on a weekly basis.
This can be done from the adminstration page (only administrators can get to (hence it's name
Use the: "Backup Database" link.
That way if this database does go down to the tube like the last one, u'll have a copy of all but the most recent of posts.
As i don't know who's the admin for this forum, i can't adress this to them in person.
Out of curiosity: Why wasn't this done for the old forum?
