Posts/comments submitted Wednesday morning
A problem with a Blogit data storage server appears to have affected certain posts and comments.
All blogs are displaying as expected. However, any affected posts and comments display the text, "This (post/comment) cannot be displayed. Please try again in a few minutes."
We are working to correct the problem. The problem appears to primarily affect posts and comments posted earlier in the morning Blogit Time (US Arizona Time).
We apologize for the inconvenience. If you wish to remove any relevant posts and repost them, you may do so. New posts and comments seem to be displaying correctly.
One of the hard disks on a Blogit data storage server stopped working at approximately 11:45 am Blogit Time (US Arizona time).
All data is saved to multiple hard drives to avoid data loss. As a result, the majority of data was saved despite the hard drive failure. Unfortunately, due to a technical problem, some data was not.
We are working to restore any lost data. We are also investigating the reason for this problem so we can prevent this from happening again.
Despite our best efforts, we were unable to restore the posts and comments that were submitted shortly before the hard disk failure Wednesday morning Blogit Time. Other posts and comments appear to be intact. If possible, please resubmit any affected posts.
Although the number of affected items was relatively small, our goal is to prevent any data loss. We are working on a plan to keep this problem from recurring.
