Hi all,

Myself and Mark hope you have had an excellent Christmas and we wish you season’s greetings.

We have over the last few days been investigating the current issue with the UK forum which has resulted in Mark and Roman spending a fair bit of time on the phone.

This has led to the identification of a corrupt forum database.

At this point we are not sure when the forum will be restored so in the mean time please use the main US forum - Elstree Base section to post up WIPS and sign up to events etc.

Each of our detachments has an area to be utilised. We have also created threads which events can be added to. As soon as we are able to we will provide further updates.

Many thanks for your patience during the last few days whilst we have been investigating. Please bear with us whilst we continue to resolve. Many thanks and Happy New Year to you all

Mark & Pete

A corrupt forum database could mean only one thing... invasion.

Topnight I've spent some time talking options over with some of the command staff and also Godaddy web support.

The short story is vital databases of the forum became corrupted and weren't successfully able to be restored from the backed-up versions prior to a server migration by the host.
This was a critical server migration but also a fairly routine one, from what we've been told we were very unlucky that this happened.
What this has left us is with a forum with lots of posts but no topics, and a corrupted user database.

After discussion with Roman and Pete we feel the only real option left to us at this point is a creation of a brand new forum.

This will mean that we are literally having to start from scratch, all members of the base will need to reregister and any existing active topics ie WIPS will need to be started again.

Whilst this may seem like the worst case scenario, this does mean that we can build a forum on the most recent PHPBB version which wasn't available to us and hopefully we'll be able to configure this in a way that will allow all users to get the most out of the forum.

In the upcoming days i'll be discussing this continually with the base team and base DCOS so that we can get as much information back on the forum as possible before the forum is made live to you all.

I apologise that there isn't better news at this time, but hopefully we can have the new forum up and running very soon. New Year - New Forum but still the great awesome Elstree Base.

There probably wont be many updates until the forum is up and running but keep an eye on this topic and continue to use our main US forum for the inter-rim.

Cheers
-Mark

Good news everyone we have a new Elstree Base Forum!

PLease make your way over to www.rebellegion.co.uk to create your new user.

To help speed up activation if you could use either your old RLUK forum user name or your RL.com user name that would help.

Please also change all book marks to rebellegion.co.uk as we no longer use the rebellegionuk.com url and it no longer redirects.

Should all be done now fella. As I'm sure you an understand we have had lots of requests and it's taken a bit of time to get through them.

We also wanted to stagger it a bit to make sure the forum coped ok with lots of people registering at the same time.

If anyone else has yet to register, please head over to www.rebellegion.co.uk/forum

Once again thanks for the patience shown by everyone it's been a busy couple of weeks.

Stroudy & Mark
