"Fixed" here meaning that you don't get the error message. The email still doesn't go where it should. Investigating.

The problem with posts getting duplicated between threads could be a nasty one. I'm going to disable posting for an hour or so while I look into it.

I've sorted out the mixed message in new topics, as far as I can. There may be some slight anomalies like dates. The other option would have been to revert to the state as it was around 6pm yesterday. If any further problems are seen, that might sadly have to be the answer. We'd lose about 100 posts and 5 new topics.

My wife asked me what I was doing - I said, I'm trying to pick up about 40 dropped stitches in a complex piece of knitting which uses about 12 pairs of needles held by 12 different people knitting simultaneously, has 70 thousand-odd rows done already, and another 100 rows have been done since the problem started. Oh, and people are still knitting while I'm doing it, and knitting into the dropped stitches.

I hope that explains why I had to disable posting for a while Smile

Knitting, or databases?

Laughing Laughing Laughing That's brilliant! Copy and keep that bit at least if you have to restart us all from 6pm yesterday...... it could help explain everything.

I guess it would be a good description of trying to make changes to running the whole country too! Shocked
