    Default Data from May - October 2013

    Hello


    I thought I'd give an update as to the conversion of the data from May - late October.


    Firstly, No, it's not lost!


    Secondly -- why is it taking so long?


    Unexpected obstacles mainly. In brief, the data being provided in a format, that I wasn't able to view easily. This is down to my tech skills rather than the format. Luckily BasenotesDude has helped me to be able to access it.


    The other reason is that the data format is a lot different to the vBulletin format. I didn't get to see how different until a week or so before the move (though I had asked for samples of the data as far back as the summer, to no avail)


    I don't want to rush it, as the last thing I want is for someone to get the wrong PM's or something.


    So, my apologies for the length of time this has taken. In all honesty, I didn't think it would be this long, but we're on the home stretch now, and we should hopefully start seeing various data back soon.

    Thanks for your hard work.

    Whoever is working on this is super slow. I've considered buying a membership here but in the year and a half I've been a member it's been one of the worst managed sites I've ever seen. It's almost as if the owner were trying to drive traffic away.

    The people coding the data are possibly with you on that one!

    My apologies this is taking so long.

    I've worked out the mapping for the itrader feedback, so this will probably be back first. All the data is in a completely different format to what it is here and there is no instructions. Believe me, I would much rather it be back by now too.

    Dear Grant,
    Thanks for the update; this is a good start. I personally miss most my reviews (a lot in these months) and posts, as I am used to refer to them quite a lot, so it is great that some data transfer back can start. You have to still run the day-to-day business of the site; thank you for all your effort and hard work.

    Would also be interested in knowing about any progress being made with bringing the lost data back especially the images/photos.

    I would like to know if there is any progress with updating our wardrobe counts, adding all the sotd's from May 15th- October 29th in 2013. Any info would be appreciated.

    I just checked my sotd data for the first time in a long time and, instead of going back to the date of my joining, my sotd data only goes back one month. So not only is the hddlr era stuff still gone, everything older than about five weeks is gone too. Is there some change that's been made?

    Just curious as we approach August 2014 if there has been any progress in recovering Huddler threads, images, and photos? Has the gentleman who was the technical guru and liaison made any headway, or are we still dwelling in limbo?

    Is there any news about the missing data? It would be a real shame if all the information included in Huddler-era threads just disappeared ... One way or anther, an update would be very gratefully received!

    It's all still being worked on - although it's a bigger job than anticipated, and has to be done in tandem with current tasks, hence the long wait unfortunately. (Our technical guru also has a demanding day job!) The current priority with Grant is wardrobe data.

    Thanks for the update, Judith. I'm sure I'm not the only one looking forward to seeing those old threads back again

    Thank you for the news. It's refreshing to know that it hasn't been forgotten and is still on the agenda of things to do.
