Post Missing posts
Uh....this forum looks like it went back in time a few hours and as a result a lot of posts seem to be gone, including the second week of the 2012 Competition. What happened?

Yes. I posted in ALPHA about this. I lost about 3 to 5 posts or so. The Pedro lost more.

I did get a few 403 Forbidden messages when trying to get on the site, main and forum. Don't know if that tells you guys anything.

The site got moved lock, stock and barrel to a new server. Happened kind of suddenly, though. Apparently the amount of traffic ReelViews gets became too much for the shared server it was on. Started impacting other users, so they shut me down. I negotiated a move to a private server (which will obviously cost a lot more) and everything was shifted over. The main site was completely unaffected except for the short period when it was down and out. It appears there may have been some forum post losses, though.

Going forward, there shouldn't be any problems. One benefit is that given the additional bandwidth I have available, I'll be able to do the live Oscar-cast thing without worrying about it breaking the server (which happened shortly after 11 pm ET two years ago and was one of the reasons I didn't do it last year).
