Why was the wine thread killed?

Postby varun » Tue, 25 Oct 2005 10:22 am

Went looking for the "why is wine so expensive" thread and couldn't find it. Googled it and found the reference through (Google cache) with the last post on Oct 13. The entire thread seems to've disappeared...

Why?

You are right... This is becoming annoying, shall we call Postbusters?

It would seem that the servers are suffering at the moment & bits are being culled (pun intended). The games have gone as well :(

Don't know what is happening. We have had several instances of disappearing threads. They were certainly not purposely deleted.

"Very sorry for the inconvenience caused".

But what about the games SE? Are they gone forever?

Pal is gradually adding stuff back in. Something was causing great slowness he is trying to identify the culprit by doing things systematically.

Games will be added very soon ....

May I ask you u guys how is the speed of the forum from Sunday to this moment? If its smooth and fast, I will add the games back tonight.

As for the missing posts, I may have to remove all moderators for a period of time to see if the problem still exist.

Speed is good, actually faster than I have experienced before.

It is so fast that there is a little bell that keeps going 'ding...ding...ding..etc'

Search on "wine so expensive" using the Google Singapore Expats search from the forum. One hit. Click on the cached results link. There ya go. :-)

(later edit)

Oh, okay, okay, here's the full link: ;-)

I don't have any logs for this deletion.

But I will be logging every moderation from today onwards.

Please report to me when you guys found another missing thread from TODAY. I need the FULL URL to see who deleted it.
