Database issues

Looks like we’ve had some kind of issue with the backend, and a post that was made last night disappeared. We have posted that again.

We’ve heard that some of you had commented on that post, and the comments were lost. If you can please post again, we’ll mod it up and give you the points.

Terribly sorry for the inconvenience caused!
