This topic will stay for a while, we can delete it later. But in the meantime for anyone who was not here on July 1 and is confused, this topic will provide an explanation of what happened to the forum.

On July 1, the forum completely shut down. This went on-and-off, eventually bringing the whole website down with it. The blog was unreadable, and even the games were broken. The reason for this was because the forum had so many posts that the forum ran out of data.

Signs of this already happened before, with the glitching forum software, but it became worse recently. And so, to preserve space, over 300K posts were deleted.

Matt began by deleting larger topics that could be recreated and were not needed, such as School. He also split other topics that WERE important, but didn't need 5,000 posts (such as Banned Users & Deleted Accounts). Penguin and I later continued with this, and cleared out the boards we moderate, removing over 1,000 old topics that were unused in the process.

So why did almost nobody lose post count?

It's because if you delete a topic in a board that won't count posts, nobody will lose posts. And Matt made sure that Forum Discussion didn't count posts anymore so that this would be easier, and also because we cannot hyperpost anymore. Hyperposting will just bring the forum's post count back up. A new update is in the works that will allow us to choose colours, hopefully stopping hyperposting in the process.

In the meantime, do not delete your own topics to preserve space. If you have old topics that are genuinely used by nobody, or just terrible and should've been deleted anyways, go ahead. But deleting tons of topics without taking precautions is just making everything worse so don't do it.

Anyways there. I hope this will solve any further misunderstandings.

EDIT: If you lost posts, then it is because other users decided to delete their topics. The moderators deleting topics made sure nobody lost post count. This is exactly why people should not delete their own topics.

OMG SO it wasn't just me! Glad I took a screenshot when the message on my tablet, phone and computer said it needed repair. Also when I tried to join the page, it said it was unable to connect, that worried more because it was only the forum, but flipline itself! Anyway, it's over
