By entering the site you have the ability to quantum leap back to January 2011. You have to take off all your clothes, stand in the middle of the street with your laptop on the VivaF1 homepage and shout "I AM THE GHOST OF JIMMY SAVILE!"

Except he wasn't a ghost at that time :RASPBERRY:

Tiz annoying though, especially when we don't get answers from the webhost.

That's exactly why the Ghost would take us back.

Looks like Viva's web host crashed/trashed Viva's data and is not competent to get it back.

It is possible they have a backup of the data but don't know how to restore it. :-(

It looks like we could start new threads but if they restore the database they will probably wipe out any new ones. Unless they are especially competent but, if they were we would already be restored and up running.

Right now they are probably hoping we all just go away. :grump:

It probably won't be fixed in time for the upcoming Grand Prix but we're fairly hopeful to be right for the one after it...

:-p

If you have an account and you can't get in it's probably best to register a new account. If you do rejoin drop me a PM with your new username and I can change the name to your original ID for you if you wish

if you can't get in, you should be able to rejoin with your original username - it's January 2011 and you haven't been born yet.

Now we know all of Red Bull's technical "limit-pushers" we can alert the FIA in advance of every race. Rather than letting them have 3 races advantage before a technical directive is issued.

The time travel will cause all sorts of headaches for Pitmonster with the prediction game!

Will the site get restored or is it start again from now?

What went wrong?

Not quite sure if we can get back to what we had, server deletes old data after 10 days apparently and they have deleted the last site backup. I have a copy of some of the data but I don't know if Mav can do anything with it, let's see what he says.

What went wrong? Hosting company told us they were closing old server and switching to new, we got just a few hours notice about the change and then when they switched us to it, it didn't work. Mav has been working incredibly hard these last 3 weeks to get the site back but I don't think either of us know if we can get the forum back as it was.

On the plus side, the blog works now. All the stats pages are active, it's just members the forum that's wonky and anyone who joined after Jan 2011 would have to join again. Of course if we do get the backup I have working, all these new comments will be overwritten. :crazy:
