    The server KnifeForums.com "lives" on suffered a critical error over the past weekend. While we were able to bring the site back up, we lost all activity back through January 2015. Unfortunately, it was either that or lose the site entirely. I am working with the host now on a server upgrade to make sure this doesn't happen in the future.

    Ben,

    Thanks for the update!

    It's good to see the site up again, even if we lost a year.


    Regards
    Mikael

    If you want to win an argument, it is best to stick to the truth.....or,at least, provable untruths.

    Wiped out the sales threads. That should make the sellers happy. Current discussions, such as they were, are gone.

    I had hopes this forum could be kept alive, but seems like the administrators keep doing nothing to prevent the demise.

    The platform this forum sits on is no longer supported, which means the options are:

    a) switch to a different forum platform, which would delete 100% of everything on the current forum

    b) retain the existing forum and address technical issues as they arise

    Because of the long legacy of KF posts and user history, we're sticking with option B.

    Ben - It's a step forward that you're even communicating with us.

    No one wants to loose the history and information on the forum. Is there not a way to archive the info and migrate it to a new format?
