Let me first of all state categorically that the gauge did not crash. I myself must humbly apologise for the gauge being off line. Technically it was my fault. I say technically because what I did shouldn’t really have happened, but it did. Firstly I would like to explain part of the workings of the Administration board, which governs the way in which members view the gauge. I had made one or two changes inasmuch as I added some new forums as members had requested special area’s to post to. Okay, that was fine until some members started to moan about to many SUB forums and Sticky threads to scroll through. So I thought, I would try and please everyone by making a new forum and placing the sub-forums into it. Sub forums are child forums from the parent forum, which is the main forum. So in the case of the “General Forum” we had 3 child forums from it. Just the same as in the “Photography Forum” we have a child forum called “Photo Contests”. So okay, I would create one new forum to move all the existing child forums into one place. This I did, and YEP, this is where it all went wrong. On the administration board it tells you where to put the display number, (Order of viewing) well as the “General Forum” was at 100, I set this new forum to 99, and proceeded to save the new settings. On viewing it I noticed that the forum I had created was not above the General forum as expected, but had shot up on top by the gauge logo area. So I thought to myself I had better delete this and wait for Peter or Aaron to tell me how to do this part, so I deleted it and the rest, as they say, is history. On deleting that one forum, it took all those below away as well. The forum I deleted was a new forum I had just created, so how it became the parent to the whole lot that vanished is way beyond me. Anyway, - now you know what happened. Sorry People. Shamus Ps I note from my logo, I am not ADMIN but a Moderator, looks like I have been demoted.
