    Site Outage (tonight) Sunday 12th June 2011

    I apologise for the site outage this evening. We discovered a bug in the site software at 8.30, which resulted in 58,000 threads being suddenly moved from their relevant forums into the Photo of the Week forum.

    Kym has restored them all via database to the forums they should have been in.

    So..back to regular programming now.

    Sorry!

    Yep, we have now moved the last ones manually. We had about 20-30 to move, which may now be in different forums to where the member posted them. We just looked at content and decided which forum to move them to. Sorry if anyone's thread end up in a different forum to where they started out.

    I fixed the threads started up to this morning's backup (3am) and we had to fix any other started today by hand.

    What went wrong?

    A moderator wanted to move the 3 poll threads to the POTW from the staging area... and used the bulk move feature ... which moved all non sticky threads ~58,000 of them to the POTW forum - yikes.

    Said un-named mod did nothing wrong, there is a fault in the move thread code. If you move threads individually all is well.
