The Great Blog Disaster of 2006

Hey guys...


So you may or may not have noticed that the Blogs got majorly goofed up. We have been working tirelessly on the new version of Threadless, and today was the big day to move files we have been working on from the staging servers to the live servers. That's when the 'robots attacked'. To make a long story short, all blogs posted after December 2005 are now in heaven. :(


We know that you guys have a lot of important stuff in the blogs that were lost, and we sincerely apologize for the mishap. The good news is that we only lost the actual blogs, not the blog comments. We're working with our hosting facility to comb through logs and backups to try to restore everything back to how it was.


The truth is we're not sure if it can be restored. However, on the bright side we're just a few short weeks away from the brand new version of Threadless. We promise that the new version, with all of its amazing new features, will make this incident worth it.


You guys can't imagine how bad we feel about this, so please accept our most sincere apologies. If you have any questions, please post them in here and we'll try our best to address each one of them.


Love,
skinnyCorp

i hope the new blog/forum has some sort of sticky feature for these kind of things so we don't feel obligated to bump them :)

This is weird.. I haven't read the majority of what has been said so I do apologise in advance if this has been said already, but... I understand that some of my blogs have been lost, but why have most of my deleted blogs (pre-dec05) come back?!?!

the only blog i lost that had any importance was the swp vs putumayo epic... but i guess thats not that important anyways...

its really not that hard to get them back... the only one i felt like saving was the time i acted as larchie's pimp and she was sold on ebay...

In a case of pure religious suppression, the Threadlesstament has gone the way of the dodo. Personally, I blame the vatican. Hair blog's gone too...snifffff...it's like losing a family member. Well, one that you really don't care that much about...waaahh.

DaddyDom

That's "Your Holy Fucktardness" to you, boy!!!

UberRyan

Oh well, I guess it's a sign that I shouldn't blog so much. It's interesting seeing all my old blogs that I deleted though.
