As unfortunate as it comes, the server crashed around 6:45 PM - 7:30 PM DST (Daylight Saving Time) today. After the server got back on, all the data created after April 5th is lost. That includes membership, posts, threads, PMs ... etc, basically everything created after April 5th are gone. The board is back to how it was when it's April 5th. I sent an urgent email to my host. Here is the reply.
Luckily, I made a backup of the database on April 12th myself. So the forums is restored back to how it was when it's April 12th. Still, everything made after that date are gone. So if you signed up after the date April 12th, you'll have to register again. If you have any problems, complaints, questions about this incident, please post them under Feedback & Support forums or the currently pinned thread under Off-Topic Stuff. I hereby apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.
P.S. - Estimated Loss: 30 Members, 120 Threads, 1,500 Posts.

Perry, you the man for that backup on the 12th, it's almost like you can predict the future, lol. I'm not too worried about 8 days of post loss. But hey, 8 days is just over a week, and in a weeks time, some important posts could have been made, some maybe not so important. But damn, in 8 days, ~30 members joined, ~120 threads made, and ~1,500 posts made?! CRAZY!
