Is it just me, or have all the topics in this board vanished?

It's not just you. I can't even see THIS topic. WTF is going on here?

Yeah. When I try to access this board, it says there are no messages... and it says there are 0 topics on the main page...  :-\

Same here. The only thread I can access is this one, and only by clicking on the latest post icon.

I had thought that Terry was simply deleting old threads from the "VVVVVV Help" forum to avoid clutter.  But this is just ridiculous.

Fortunately, the threads in question do in fact still exist.  For example, the room names thread (started by Lollipop) can be found here: http://distractionware.com/forum/index.php?topic=1872.0 (http://distractionware.com/forum/index.php?topic=1872.0)

Yeah, the custom search will still give you topics from this board, even though there are no topics on this board.

Something bad. Let's just hope this doesn't spread to the other board.

Terry's probably going to fix this soon. It's clear that all of the topics in the board still exist, it's just that the VVVVVV Help index bugged out for some reason.

Do you even know if Terry knows about this?

Hopefully this is just a bug or something

Think I fixed it. Woo!

At one point in figuring this out I managed to break the settings file, which deleted the entire board. Luckily there was an automated backup! :viridian:
