JonJon said:This whole experience has been very upsetting for me as it represented 7 years hard work, the loss of invaluable knowledge to many and serious damage to the community here. No doubt we will lose lots of members as a result.
However, I want to rebirth the forums and hope something good comes out of it.
Rest assured that many of us longer term members will not desert the forums. As questions pop up we will soon build up a useful fount of Access knowledge.
You know there is a hardcore of regular experts who will support you and the forums - I for one appreciate the hard work you've done and will do my best to help build up our wealth of knowledge - I think I also speak for the others too.
Hang in there mate
I haven't been here in a while so I haven't read any recent posts to which you are referring, but I don't need to - freedom of speech! And if that is the reason for it, then that person has essentially admitted to not being smart enough to defend themselves verbally.reclusivemonkey said:Firstly, let me say I do not condone in any way what has happened here. However I am quite surprised that no one has suggested you leave politics out of a technical forum; this my have nothing to do with recent events, but personally I found some of the comments appearing in the Watercooler to be racist and extremely offensive. IMHO, if you allow things like this to be discussed on the forum, you won't find it long before you attract this sort of attention again.

I didn't have to recreate my account.
That's interesting. So it would appear the contents of individual posts still exist and are linked to the poster, but the references that string posts together in a thread and references a forum location are gone.ChrisO said:I don’t know if this will be of any help but it seems that data may not have been totally lost...
