Database Crash

I had a catastrophic server crash on one of the mysql slave servers. It happened as the data was syncing between the servers. I lost the vbulletin database completely. I tried to repair it and in the end gave up. I also lost all backups.

Anyone that registered while we were running vbulletin is lost.
All posts from that time, almost 2 months, are also lost.

I apologize to those that got wiped out and hope you register again. I have added safeguards to make sure this never happens again
