Website Problems - 2 months data lost
May 16th, 2009 12:50:01
Due to a network glitch our live webserver expired last night rather than being renewed for 3 months whilst we worked on the new server. As we hadn't been planning on moving the site over just yet, and as the old webhosts are hard to contact (they are only open 5 days a week anyway), we have had to revert back to a backup database which was taken on 29th March 2009.

As you can guess, and see, this means that 2 months worth of news stories, Transformers Animated episode reviews and latest Transformers toy galleries have been lost. Whilst we can recreate the image galleries and episode guides the news stories are lost to time ... and the WayBackEngine.

We had already mirated our email over to the new server, as well as a few other domains, but our larger domains were left on the old site. Here's a basic summary of what has been lost:

Transformers At The Moon - 2 months of news stories, 2 months of message board posts, message board configurations, two toy galleries (Gold Big Convoy and Silver Big Convoy) along with various feeds and robots.
Transformers Animated - 2 months of episode galleries / reviews, new character listings, 2 months of news stories
Lucky Draw Transformers - 2 months of news stories
AFA Transformers - any ebay auction information from the last 2 months
The Visionaries.net - everything
Steven Mapes.com - everything
Project Rock Education - not effected
Hertfordsire School of Rock - not effected

We are slowly trying to bring the sites back up, starting with Transformers Animated.com, and will look to re-populate the missing data as best we can. The message board will remain unavailable for the interim period, as we need to investigate the full damage.

This has happend at the worst time for us, due to work commitments, so please bear with us whilst we rebuild the site. For those asking why it wasn't backed up more regularly. It was, only that backup server was part of the same hosting package which has expired as the payment was not processed fully due to a network glitch.
