« Thread started on: Jun 27th, 2010, 03:20am »

As has already been announced. we are archiving inactive boards on the main Conforums server. Conforums3.com server will follow shortly.

The criteria for archiving a board are as follows:
  • It has been created but unused for 6 months.
  • It has not been posted to for the last 2 years.

In order to prevent a message board being automatically archived we suggest that you drop a post on it at least once a year. If you do not wish other users to see the post, create a hidden category and pop a post there. The archive script sees every post made no matter where it is - even within password protected boards.

If your message board has been archived and you wish to have it restored then please created a new thread here on the support board and we will be more than happy to restore it for you.

I must stress, that when boards are archived, they are NOT deleted from the system and will be available upon request.

After a board has been restored, you have 7 days to make a post to it. If you fail to, it will be archived again.

kov.conforums.com was the address to my board and I believe it's been archived. I link to it from my site as this was our source of a forum until I was able to get my own site up and running. I would appreciate it if it was restored. Thanks!

I can restore it for you but you must place a post on the board or the automated archive script will archive it again as inactive.

Thanks for replying. Sadly, I do not have the login information for my account as it was reset long ago, and the email address that it was registered to is gone as well. This may not be the board to post on for help with that, but is there any way we can move forward with this?

Thanks again for your help.

Archiving of inactive/unused boards on Conforums3.com server has now commenced.

The same criteria apply as I post in my first post.

The script which archives boards runs once a week.

I did restore the board once already but if there was no activity on the board then the script will have acrhcived it again.

That would explain it... could you reactivate it once more? I've got my calendar marked to check it tomorrow and will try to get a post up there then. Thanks.
