Sorry Snowball.  I posted a chart and somehow locked up the forum.

As suspected the mistake was the dimensions of the chart I saved was too large to fit within the database record size for attachment.  If you copy a picture in excel, paste it into word, then save the picture as a png, with dimensions less than 1500x1500, my initial save was 5500x6000.

This is a screenshot of part of a thread that was started by Birdman earlier today before database restore and deletion of posts. I didn't capture the initial part of the thread but Mazinger7000 quoted Birdman. The only other thing missing was a post by Snowball informing us that he was working on the database!

I assume the change of forum handle still holds?!

SemiKeyDate1/2ozPanda, no problem.   :001_smile:

The same issue happened on 4/15/2014, two years ago.   The forum team and the tech support together spent 2 days to figure out that it was the dimension causing the blank post.  However, the issue has already been there because we didn't figure out how to get it fixed.   N2
