I'm not technically a web developer as such, but I have a pretty urgent question to ask anyone who uses or knows anything about Invision Power Boards.
My friends and I had a board which the maintainer didn't tell us was in danger of being deleted any day since it was from way back when IPB was still a free service.
Then, when we tried to access it a couple of days ago, it didn't exist. Since we had almost three years' worth of fiction on there, we're really starting to panic that it's gone forever, and though we've emailed invision ourselves, they haven't gotten back to us yet.
Does anyone know what happens to data when an IPB expires and is deleted? Is it possible we'll ever get our work back?
