I mean, I like new starts. Only, I like to decide on them myself.

Re: What happened to all the thread subscriptions?

Subscriptions were accidentally lost in a sysadmin error on Friday.

Sorry about that. They should now have been restored from a backup.

Re: What happened to all the thread subscriptions?

Hi Bob,

I'm afraid the rollback (or whatever procedure you used) has only been partially successful.

I have checked a handful of threads I was subscribed to before Friday and all but one of them are still unsubscribed - can you take another look please?

Lucky you

Do have a double check though - a lot of mine are back (~800 out of 1250) but a lot missing too - seems many recent ones are unsubscribed for some reason - check the threads for which you have got (all green, I am sure) blobbies in your control panel

Only partially back for me.

Looks like there's a chunk of subscribed threads missing.

Re: What happened to all the thread subscriptions?

Got 3095 back. If that's not all of them, I definitely don't mind

Must be those from 2006, most of them are inactive anyway (wonder if the closed threads still stay amongst the subscribed ones. Guess yes)

Re: What happened to all the thread subscriptions?

If it's only new subscriptions since Friday then they'll not be recoverable.

Some of the recent ones no longer there were before Friday but probably all in the last week or so.

Can’t arsed checking all the older ones, don’t really care about most of them anyway.

Apparently, after twelve years of highly valued and top quality contributions, all I have to my name is some stupid thread about goats.

What happened?
Vast amounts of bullsh1t (including yours) all gone and with only a small sample of it left to remind us, what a shame!

3,953 threads for me, and I've no idea if that's all of them or not. But Editor Bob says that all subscribed threads (up to Friday) should be back now. Any that you subscribed to over the weekend will not return to your subscription list. You'll need to search out the ones you're interested in and subscribe manually (or, if you've enabled automatic subscription when you post in a thread, this will happen -- and will stick -- when you post in those threads).

It's the subscriptions which disappeared, not the threads.

Keep up at the back there!
