Same here. I am preparing something and being able to read these posts would be of great use to me.

This is a really really bad thing.  The coolest stuff and most informing material i have posted have been turned into "articles", never to be seen again.  

Only the two main guys on here can be held accountable, I think .....?   This can make you lose interest: the last thing we need on this site.  

 

 

 

 

Really not cool.

I suspect the posts can be recovered - just a few things settings probably need to be tweeked in the back-end of the site. Hopefully that will be done at some point because as it stands we've lost a lot of really useful content.

^What -mg said.. I've posted a lot of stuff that's informative/useful. Though they haven't been promoted to "articles", it would definitely suck if they were lost, as apparently I tend to use this website as my drawing board a lot, and don't really make any back-ups, aside a few bookmarks and some documents. But the theories and connections I've made are mostly "in the cloud" (isn't that the term nowadays?).

I'd really be interested in reading -mg's stuff too, for that matter. Would be great if the material could be recovered!
I guess that's why I opted for writing articles now, so as to be able to keep them backed-up. I know the promoting to articles doesn't occur anymore, but still.. would suck if everything was lost.

Excuse me for derailing, but this reminds me very much of the Doctor Who episode "The Long Game" where people are promoted only to be never seen again (dead) :-P

 

On topic: I actually wrote a message to jay on this topic about a month ago, and he said "it looks like David has deleted that entire area of the site... I will try and find out about it.", which doesn't bode well (the deletion part, that is) :-(

(jay: I hope it's alright by you that I quote our private conversation here? :-) Otherwise, feel free to delete my post!)

I'm sure someone is profiting from our hard work.  And I mean monetarily.   ............Yuck.  I'm disgusted.
