Does this mean all the convesations with our friends who've gone on ahead - Editgrl, Day Lady, LouAnn, etc - have been wiped out??? How can this be ? What a loss, indeed.

All from October 29 until this evening so the more recent discussions have been lost. Whew, it would have been more terrible if it were from the beginning.

Whew! I read the CSN posting wrong, then. That's a relief, thank you.

This is really unfortunate. I was trying to support someone who had MMMt cancer just as it went out. I want to respond to her but dont have here information any more. I hope she is doing okay and can get back on.

I am shocked!  I just don't know what to say.

I'm really sorry to hear this very unfortunate news.  Doesn't CSN maintain a backup drive which would allow the lost information to be restored?  I would expect that to be the case, since we are talking about a reputable organization that serves as the repository for such valuable information for members of the cancer community.  Hopefully, this will not be the end of the story!

How does an reputable organization such as the American Cancer Society just allow data to be nonrecoverable?

They should spend the money to recover the lost data.

If another entity is being paid to manage and maintain this discussion board they have a critical error and it’s time to find a new host vendor.

Sloppy and inexcusable. We know about redundancy and back up on data.

A sad day for all of us who have put time and energy creating a repository of knowledge to help people with cancer and survivors and their loved ones.

And why would this disclaimer think that is all that it takes? So disappointing to so many of us. Unbelievable!

I am relatively new here and hope to connect back with the member who is having her hysteroscopy Friday February 1st. I am having mine the 6th and hoped to provide some support since we are at the same place in our journey right now. If you make it back here please let me know. To the rest of you ladies it's good to see you all again. You're making my wait bearable and giving me so much good info.

I was wiped out but I registered again. Keep in touch when you find out your diagnosis.

My membership was also gone.   It will be a lot of work to recreate.    Oh well, we have all had worse days.

They are trying to downplay the fact that our profiles were erased even those who registered before. Does this mean my entire group of posts are lost, too? How man6 hundreds of profiles were wiped out across this forum? Thousands?

Your original profile and old posts still exist under BluebirdOne, not Bluebird1.

so much has happened since then. There are some new people I'm going to be very concerned about. Hope they find their way back. If you are new, I hope you complete an "about me" page so we will be able to jog our memories about your details that are now lost

 

Where did my picture go?

I had to re-register.  So I wonder if those newly registered will also have to do the same?

Profile photos and updates done after Oct are gone too. It's really frustrating that an organization as big as the ACS doesn't back up their data...

old posts from our dear friends who moved on from this world- Editgrl, LouAnn, Day Lady, moli moli, Ro and so many others that I have lost count. Such beautiful souls who gave each of us much support, information and their wisdom. I know that having “known” them has had an indelible and profound effect on my own life. My cancer journey was not one that I embarked on alone: No, they were there as each of you have been as well.

Thank you and the Warnest of Wishes,

Cathy

My profile picture of the sock doll LouAnn had sent me the day before she died is gone! I put my high school graduation picture in its place until I find my LouAnn picture again. That picture was taken 50 years ago. It seems like only yesterday I was 17! But you know, even knowing what I would have to go through to get to this point, I would do it all over again!

Love you all!

Eldri, you were a looker then and a looker now! I loved the picture before the sock monkey, but know it had special significance to you so always enjoyed it from the perspective.

Chose to replace my pic with the nature of my handle- my reign as the 1976 Pinconning Michigan Cheese Queen!

I was going to post my high school graduation photo in solidarity with Eldri's great pic since we were both rocking the long, straight hair in style at the time, but CheeseQueen's photo has won the mic drop. The Queen rules!

Thank you both ;)
