Exclamation Forum - important announcement

As many of you will have realised, we have recently had some major issues on the forum.

Towards the end of June our forum went down and the database became corrupted. Since then, our technical team have worked hard to restore the forum, but it has proved very difficult.

After over a month of work, our team have been able to restore the forum, but unfortunately, due to some of the custom code that was put in place, posts made within the last few years have been lost.

Two options were available to us:
1. Restore the forum to an earlier version.
or
2. Not restore the forum, leaving it inaccessible.

We chose to go with option 1, and though not ideal, it is unfortunately the best we have been able to do, given the complexity of the issue.

Please do accept our apologies for any posts that have been lost. We understand how frustrating this must be, and we are truly sorry for the inconvenience caused.

The work on the forum continues, which should see some of the out of date elements updated soon.

There is a way to view the old posts, by visiting Wayback Machine, which is a web archiving utility which takes snaps shots of websites at certain moments in time.

You can view this by visiting here: https://web.archive.org/web/20180416...houseforum.com

If there was a particular post that you enjoyed reading, that link should give you access to it. Unfortunately, all of the posts on that page are read-only: they cannot be replied to or commented upon.

We know this is a small consolation, but we hope that it is some consolation at least.

Thank you to everyone for their patience and understanding. Please do accept our apologies again. We know that this situation is not ideal, but it is the best we have been able to do given the circumstances.

All the best

Default announcement

Hi, thank you for your work restoring, wondering if it would be possible for you to put an announcement on the facebook page and shop site explaining that the site is back..or even mentioning that the forum exists (for those new to this hobby)...many like me may have thought it had simply closed....would be nice to see some f the old faces back

Hi Sharon

Thank you for your responses.

I have posted on Facebook page, thank you.

I'm sorry to hear about the issue you're having with the album, it seems the forum is still having a few teething problems. I shall raise this and hopefully we can get it resolved.

All the best
