Due to ongoing stability problems - for which we apologise - we have temporarily removed the first three million posts from the forum's database.

Some long running threads will begin in early Feb 2008, while any older threads that remain accessible will have no content.

This is a temporary measure to see if the root cause of these problems is the size of the posts table. All these posts will be restored when the result of running the forum in this way becomes clear.

Thanks for your understanding.

How is this going? Can we expect the older posts to be restored soon?

Still monitoring telemetry from the servers, but I'm hoping to restore the historical posts later in the week or perhaps at the weekend.

As part of the repair work today, all historical posts have been restored.
