What happened to Mandrake's AAR "At Dawn We Slept... in a cab..." etc.??

I got a weird error message, and now it seems to have vanished.

Clicking on Mandrake's name says he hasn't posted in months.

What is going on here?

Just a software upgrade in progress...close your eyes, click your heels 3 times, and say "We believe in Matrix".

Let's hope ... i've had a couple of long threads (and about 12000 posts) disappear permanently.

I don't want to see his thread vanish!!

I still don't see Mandrake's AAR...better open a ticket to be on the safe side.

Good luck with that... in my experience, once a thread disappears like this it’s gone forever.

It’s one reason I don’t spend a lot of time posting to the forums anymore.

Mandrake will blame it on Frau OberGroupenfuhrer and the HOA.

Okay- at least SOME of it is still there... when I clicked on the saved location, I got an ASP 500.100 error (whatever that is)...

When various versions of The Thread vanished, the whole thing usually was gone.

Aide: "Cap, the staff is revolting!"
Mandrake: "They certainly are!"

M&M Enterprises has seized the thread until Mandrake pays them for services rendered.

This seems to be much worse than the usual forum crash. Normally, a thread gets totally or partially deleted, and they say they will look at it, but nothing seems to happen.

However, in this case, it seems to have singled out Mandrake and deleted all his posts after a certain date, and this happened in whatever thread he posted in - not just one big thread that got too ungainly for the forum software.

Not sure if Mandrake is ABLE to post at this point. Perhaps he just got disgusted after this happened? Usually when people get that mad, though, they leave one last message or someone is in touch with them and word gets back.

Has anyone heard from Mandrake?

Have any of the mods commented on this?

One would think that with all the good free publicity that Captain M. has generated (causing interest in the game, and presumably increased sales) it might behoove Matrix to address this problem in some positive fashion.

Out of curiosity, have you ever gotten response to a ticket you've opened?

Yes...for one about a unified logon problem a couple years ago.

Still nothing from Matrix.

The problem may be in the Forum Software (Forum Software © ASPPlayground.NET Advanced Edition 2.4.5 ANSI) and beyond Matrix's ability to correct, but they should still do me the courtesy of a reply.

I'll send him a PM via third-party social media tomorrow and respond with an update.
