With ForceStrategyGaming.com relaunching after being purged into the internet's great beyond, it would be best to give some info to help answer any questions you may have.
1. Where did the website go?
Force and I were contacted by our original hosting platform informing us that during a process of server migration, they only moved a portion of the site, and its backups, before deleting the original server content. They did not realize this mistake until it was too late. Because of this, every single post, user profile and files were deleted. While this was out of our control, I still want to apologize to everyone in the community. We had a lot of discussions and guides going on in our community, and its a tragedy that everything disappeared.
Feel free to repost any threads you already had on the original site. For those of you who built guides, I would suggest trying to do utilize Google's search cache, or any web archive site to see if any of your information is salvageable.
With all the efforts that were put into the original forums, I'm sure another question you have is the safety of any future posts. I can assure you right now, along with the backups our current web host will be making, I will personally be making backups of anything and everything as often as I can. This website has been my own project for almost a year now, and I never want to witness something like this happening again.
3. User Profiles
As mentioned before, the user profiles were completely wiped along with the rest of the website. For anyone who re-registers on these forums, I would kindly ask that you use the same username as before. I don't want anyone sniping usernames from active users from the original site. Anyone who believes their user name has already been sniped, please send a direct message to digitalclover. To keep things realistic, I will only offer help on this for the first 7 days after re-launch.
4. Website support
Over the months since launch, we were able to tweak and update the forums to remove any bugs or issues people were running into. With this relaunch, we're starting from scratch again so you may see some older issues pop up again. I would greatly appreciate any feedback or reports you can post in the Website Feedback forum. I will try to get everything fixed as soon as I can, but it will take some time before things are back to how they were before.
That's all of the main points I can think of at this time. I'll be posting further updates while we all get things rolling again on this forum. If you have any further comments, questions or insults please feel free to post in the "Website Feedback" forum, or message me directly. I will be administrating the forums from my "digitalclover" account. Please do not send a message to the "admin" user since that is not regularly checked.
Thanks for your patience and help in all of this. I hope that in the long run, this will make the forums even better than before.
