    Grow list missing plants

    By luck I had put a copy on Facebook in early November so only had to do small additions

    Idiot!

    Loakesy still pops by from time to time, though not as much as he used to... Yes, I'm in Bromley, and know SPC fairly well.

    More Lost Posts - Wednesday 12 December!

    This ought to get rectified today. I'll ask our developer if he took a more recent backup during the changeover (which is still happening). It may be possible to get them back. Changeover issues were a possibility. Sorry.
  5. @Richard Bunn Yesterday (Tuesday 11 December) I made 2 posts to the forum in the Sales and Wants UK Section. Both as far as I remember in 'Looking for Tuberous Drosera Seeds' They were both posted and were there visible last night. This morning (Wednesday) both of my posts have disappeared. I am a new forum member and have made 4 posts since the forum 'problems' over the weekend. I know my profile said I had made 4 posts as I checked last night. This morning my profile says I have made just 2 posts highlighting the fact 2 of my posts yesterday have disappeared. Also yesterday, Matt Cob re-posted his long list of drosera seeds which was lost with the weekend forum problems. He made 2 threads and then deleted one as it was a dulpicate. I know this for a fact because I was studying his lists yesterday. Again this morning (Wednesday) his drosera seed list has disappeared. I have no idea if other posts have disappeared since yesterday, but clearly there is still a serious problem with new posts and replies not showing up in the forum. Rob

    CPS Statement Regarding Forum Data Loss

    Thanks Steve. It's nearly there. Seems operational but I haven't had the final 'It's completely finished' email from our developer. He's been working very hard on it though. We've been in communication all afternoon.

    CPS Statement Regarding Forum Data Loss

    A huge thank you to Richard for actually getting the forum back online at all! We have been dropped on from a great height by the hosting company and it is good to be back up and running. Cheers Steve

    Grow list missing plants

  10. A few days ago we discovered that the forum hosting company had started charging us for running two servers for CPUK, rather than one. We did not request a second service, other than our backup service. Upon contacting them, they told us which service needed to go and told me to delete it via the client area. I did this as instructed. They told me the wrong one. This unfortunately also included the backups. Upon deleting our active server we then discovered that they had been storing our weekly backups of the system on the same server, rather than on a different one (which is best practice). The only backup that was available to us to be successfully restored was from August. This was when we moved to a faster SSD server. Therefore all content posted onto the forum, along with PMs and new sponsors advertising on the homepage, is as it was on August 5th 2018. All information between that date and Sunday, December 9th 2018 has been irretrievably lost by the hosting company. Needless to say, we are incredibly disappointed (not my actual words) in the service we've been paying for and the impact this has had on our community here. We will be moving to our own web hosting service very shortly. There may be some downtime during this changeover. I'll post when it has moved successfully and we can all work together to rebuild our beloved forum from the rubble as I know our forum membership can, no doubt, rise to the occasion and make CPUK great again! When the Phoenix has risen from the ashes, we ask that anyone who has recently posted plants AND SEED for sale or exchange to please list these here again. This would benefit many people. If you registered after August 5th you will need to reregister again. If you have just registered (or done it again) I will send out the validation emails when the transfer is complete. We are so sorry for all the inconvenience caused to all affected by this issue. Yours sincerely Richard Bunn CPUK Forum Webmaster The Carnivorous Plant Society www.thecps.org.uk

    You're paying for this service Richard? They should be paying you! We all know you're trying your best so good luck with getting it stable again. We'll all be waiting to chip in.

    Re-Registering on this Forum

    We seem to have everything since about that date. All the improvements we had been seeing have gone.
  15. I think it should be said anybody who registered on this forum after mid September will need to re-register unless the backups can be produced. I registered originally after mid-September and have had to re-register since the forum told me my username was not recognised. Rob

    We're sorry about this. The forum hosting company have deleted the wrong server with all our backups also. We're working on it and doing all we can, but this may not be rectifiable. We will post more about it. There could be another restore happening but we're not sure from what date (if at all) it will be yet. Needless to say we are incredibly disappointed (not my actual words) in the service we've been paying for. We will be moving to our own web hosting service in the next few days. I'll post when it has moved and we can all work together to rebuild our beloved forum from the rubble as I know our forum membership can, no doubt, rise to the occasion and make CPUK great again!

    Idiot!

    Coke is just round the corner from me. I’m in St Paul’s Cray. Small world! I keep meaning to message the chap in Gravesend about going to see what he’s got available. The stuff he has on his FB listings looks really nice!
  23. Nice one. This has been really helpful! I’ll let you know how they get on!

    Idiot!

    There's a fellow in Bromley if I remember correctly, loaksey I think was/is his username. Not seen him about either lately....
  25. You can skip dormancy in the first couple of years with your seedlings so I don't think it matters really when you sow them except that growth will be slower through the winter months. Everyone has their own techniques and I was just dabbling with some spare seed but I was surprised how well they took off..

    Idiot!

    Ahhhh, I know Orpington a bit and I used to work at cokes just down the road in foots cray... I'm guessing it's the same fella in gravesend, I've collected some plants from him a couple of years back. He used to always have listing on eBay but can't say I've seen him lately. I'm down in chavvy Chatham
  27. Looking awesome! I’m gonna stick mine in moist strat today and sow them in a few weeks. Had some people say wait, others say go for it... I’m impatient soooo. Thanks for all the info!
