Is there pruning going on?

A large number of threads, posts and user accounts appear to have disappeared.
I know Tod said some threads had been locked down, but this seems to be a bit more drastic.

If you can give us some examples we'll look into it. Nobody has been deliberately banned* or had their stuff deleted beyond the couple of threads moved to the moderators.


* Except for the spammers.

at one time I had over 600 posts now down to less than 500. G23B originaally had over 6000 posts now less than 2800.

Interesting...
I can assure you we havn't been deleting thousands of old threads. Possibly something has gone wrong at the back end.

As Guthrie says we haven't deleted any thing but Cal (site owner) is aware so will look into it.

Some months ago we pruned a lot of old material, but never reset the post statistics, yesterday the post stats were updated while trying to nail down a different problem so that is the probably cause of the difference in number of posts.

However, if you think you have identified an actual missing post please let me know and I'll look into it
