Oufhhh... not cool. What board software are/were you using?
If you need any technical assistance, I am happy to help with whatever. We just moved our site over to a new server and migrated off of SMF to vBulletin. Sounds like you will have a lot of decisions to make if you have to start from scratch.
I am online most of the time here: http://www.azaquaticplants.com/community/member.php?u=2
LMK if I can be of any assistance. Also happy to share thoughts and advice. Our local group is doing quite well.
