    Ahh, the real reason the board was down. The world isn't ready for that information so the Illuminati wiped it out. And since Cory didn't mention this at all shows they he is in their pay. Q.E.D.

    Seriously, awesome job Cory and thanks for getting the board back up as quick as you did.

    It looks like titles and avatars were just dumped from the profiles, so I'm not a sure a global fix is to be had. I had fixed my own before the forum went down but since Cory reverted to an earlier save point, it makes sense that my change was lost. I'm back in all my glory now.

    Thanks Cory.

    It's OK, they're back now.

    It appears that image thumbnails and their links are also gone. Check any RickJ post in astrophotography.

    Could the lost posts from the thread "Middle point of massive objects"
    in Space/Astronomy Questions and Answers be restored? There were
    about a dozen of them, for about 32 posts in total in the thread. Some
    of them were replies to me, which didn't contain any technical info but
    were really meaningful to me for the short time they were up.

    Thank you!

    Hi Admins,

    It appears that Tapatalk for iPhone access is still not working.
    Attempts to log-in result in a "Log In Failed" message with a lengthy message listing version numbers.
    I'll transcribe the gory details if needed.

    Clicking the Home button shows some threads that are five or more days old, and clicking on them results in an "invalid thread" message.

    It's (essentially) the same for Tapatalk on Android, still. I assume it's the same root reason. I expect they'll sort it out once everything else is settled and verified (and safe).

    Since the return of the forum, I not only can't post pictures but at least one I posted earlier is no longer visible.

    Glad it's not just me. I started a separate thread about it as well.

    This is a test



    This is an image stored remotely (nasa.gov) and inserted with the IMG tag. That seems to be working. The problem seems to be locally stored images and attachments.

    I assume this is the reason the forum went offline for over 24 hours last week? I thought that was super weird.

    Glad to hear it's all sorted out, though. Thank you, Cory.

    For that one, I get a gray bar with a paperclip and the words "attached thumbnails". None of which is clickable.

    I used to regularly link to images I stored at a third party site, but recently had started to put them here as a matter of convenience. A few days ago I noticed the same issue with locally stored images as noted by Trebuchet and Swift. But at that time I was able to see a list of the posts that had contained the locally stored images. Now I can't seem to find that list either. Sigh.

    No, there was some trouble at the Amazon hosting, Pamela and cory had it fixed real quick. Well, I have no idea how long the server had been down, but they responded very quickly anyway.

    Ouch... Good bot! Thanks. Monitoring and signalling now includes this (new) server so hopefully any future downtime will be shorter.
