Unfortunately the site went down today, the issues have now been corrected. However my latest backup is from two weeks ago, which means some members have not been restored. I will work on this. If you encounter any issues, please let me know.



Thanks for your understanding. As you continue to make this site so great, please dont hesitate to offer any feedback you may have.

Oy your killin' me... All the up loading I guess I can correct I just hope my lost friends come back. :(



Issues:



Friends advanced search missing education.



Photos tab seems to lead back to home page.



Rate-My-Ride did the same thing. Showed up then vanished.



Java based aps seem hit n' miss. Yesterday on 3 diffrent browsers I was unable to enter anything into the add a friend pop up. It started working again with no changes to my sys. Today I can't seem to delete photo's I've posted.

I can't find the blog Walls.. among other problems.. the culprit could be either the Saudi wireless Internet sucks'fest or the unending windows updates that usually make my PC mad.



By the way, what are those karma? are those akin to kisses in the forehead and golden stars being given to kindergartens? How they are earned? I will show them to my mother.. Hahaha! just kidding!

As far as I can tell the Karma has something to do with how often you post and there is a thumbs up thumbs down or karma up karma down thing on each post. If people like your post they should up your karma but overall yes Rumoulo it is the equivalent to a Gold Star. They are basically useless and mean nothing unless of course you happen to have the highest Karma score, in that case they are awesome.

- :( I apologize again, extremely disappointed I was not able to recover the users. My hosting company which I pay alot for the hosting, seems to have not been backing up my site even after I paid extra for this to do on a daily basis. Some attack on the site brought it down and prevented me from even login. I had to revert to a backup that was 2 weeks old.



I have now made alot of security upgrades to prevent in the future and made sure my hosting company is backing up on a daily basis.



I will try again to recover the users, but may need to end up emailing them.



Thanks again for being active and posting great content on the hub through the issues. Please let me know if there is anything else and I will fix along with my effort to keep improving the site.



Thank you,

Vishal

Bummer why? Not only is it a point of social interaction it would seem to fit right into your ultimate goal of recruiting.

Hello bushmechanic, how you doing buddy?

Malicious software are launched for various reasons, some find perverse satisfaction in destroying what other created, some for business opportunity, the good news is that viruses could be tracked down. Years ago, the Pentagon tracked down a virus that messed their email among others, and they find a nerdy student in Manila writing a thesis which caused the virus. I heard Pentagon hired that student.



I got it. karma is cool! they are like merits and demerits in military science schools. I saw, our buddy Mac Harper lost a minus 1 karma in the crash, if that was not lost does he deserve 50 push-ups.. I bet he can do a thousand push-ups if no one is looking.. Hahaha!

1001 to be exact good buddy...hahahahaha! I heard something about that pentagon kid too; this was sometime in the 90's if I recall correctly, I know that CIA has made hires that way before too.



Oh, and Romulo, have a look....i think your karma has increased

Wow! I see it Mac Harper, my karma increased and they restore your karma-down Hahaha! I noticed too that the nasty posts disappeared including the one in the mechanics humor.. tsk! tsk! I'm about to comment that that road must be closed to traffic during mating season.. now it's gone.

Romulo good buddy; I cant say it's all me, but I know that anytime I see one of your amusing posts, I definitely give you karma. I believe in giving credit where it is due. Mine may be down, but such is karma....payback for some ill i committed years ago I suppose hahahaha! Matter a fact Romulo, take a look, you'll see that your karma is up another point!!







Wait, do we cash these karma points in for some sort of prize? special credits on the site?? new tools for my shop maybe???

Yes Mac Harper good buddy, I see how the karma button works, instead of typing Hey! that's gross! a single click on the smite button will do the trick.. I clicked the applaud for you.. my bad! your karma become zero.. negative karma looks good on you Hahaha!



Karma could be rewarded with give-aways why not? like pens or mouses with mechanicshub logo etc., but it will need funds that will be provided only if that will make this site popular, relevant, tasteful, and really the ultimate resource center for mechanics... but then, my mom will cheat, she will register here as vikingprincess mechanic enthusiast and she will click bunches of karma for me Hahaha!

Me too.. lost a mechanic joke.



Suggestion.. I think, the mechanic quiz will be more fun and useful if it is similar to the real thing,, I don't think the Red Seal is asking a lot of trivia.. someone qualified must improve the quizzes..

Hey veeesh! buddy that was an impressive quick response.. my joke is already there! thanks! I don't know why.. I received a chat message 4 hours late.. could be my PC's fault?



Moreover, I used to know who voted me up in the reviews but not anymore, same with my friends activities in the reviews.. if this is not important to the majority.. never mind.. I just thought it is good for interaction..
