Have we been involuntarily clean slated? I know I was gone for a day or so, but this is kind of drastic isn't it? what happened?

I twas a huge system wide glitch, still not sure exactly what went wrong yet really. I am going to guess it was one of their "upgrades" gone horribly wrong or perhaps they may even have been hacked. I still don't really know, I am just speculating is all. Your guess is as good as anyone's. I just hope they at least put out an alert and let us know what happened and what they plan on doing to prevent it from happening again in the future.

yesterday, I signed in for hot minute and got slammed with pop ups. Since I have pop block, I shut the whole system down before the PC got seriously ill. Snafu's suck. They should do upgrade betas, where we could TRY THEM before they are implemented.

I have no idea what actually happened but it now finally appears to be fixed! Here's hoping... Annie

All but one of my interest were wiped out. I was glad when I found out it was happening to others as well. I thought they had it in for me, and I couldn't figure out what I had done wrong. It's nice to have politics back.

I haven't notice any large changes. What do you mean by clean slated? I haven't lost any discussions or comments. What is drastic? There was a glitch in the system yesterday but that was it .

see reply above as #1 #2 all previous posts have been deleted(?) in politics, only TWO were being offered. I logged out then back in, and now things seem normal enough...

It seems that a lot of discussions became disassociated with their respective interest groups too. I can find a lot in the politics section simply because that is where most of my strarted and replied to threads are. The discussions that were in the groups are still here, they just somehow got orphaned from their interests.

What, you don't like our new features? Yeah, it was a mess and right before a weekend too. We get hit with trolls a lot right before the weekend. In this case, maybe it was a virus or something. Problem is, Admin isn't as on top of things over the weekend and it takes longer to resolve stuff.

I wonder what happened yesterday. I was expecting it to be some upgrades but I don't think it was. At the top it has discussions posted 3 to 5 days away. I posted some discussions and yesterday people weren't able to respond to them. It all looks normal now so hopefully it is a clean slate.
