    is this the reason why posts and entire threads disappearing? Is there anything can be done to restore them?

    Yes. So, I reached out to a very good system administrator I worked with before and he isn't able to recover the week's posts. I am partialy to blame - in a rush to get the site back up and running I asked my host to look into it. They told me they had a database backup from 12/15 (over a month old!). Luckily I run backups, but for some reason they stopped n January 5th. So I told them to restore to that date.

    Now; the same problem was happening over at SkiMRV. I had the sysadmin look at it and he was able to fix it. There were crashed tables probably related to the reboot of the server. I wish I had reached out to him first because perhaps there would have been a way to preserve the posts then. But as of now, they are gone. I'm very sorry about that, this is the first time in my 3 1/2 years as the owner of AZ that we have actually lost data and it sucks. Luckily it's just a week and not a month or anything, but it's still a bummer for people that put time and effort into trip reports and other things.

    A quick read of this thread seems to have omitted one thing: Thanks, Nick for all you're doing - and I suspect we'll all survive if you can't find the missing postings.
