Post NOTICE - ALL POSTS AND INFORMATION LOST 11/29/14 - 12/20/14
The host for ECMPlace.com, Bluehost.com experienced a server failure on 12/20/2014.

After two days of attempts to repair and restore the system from here in Colorado and at Bluehost on 12/22/14 we were forced to restore the system from the last complete backup on 11/29/2014.

This means that all posts and memberships changes applied for the 3 intervening weeks have been lost. Our apologies for this loss. We will be examining options to ensure that the site continues to be a useful resource for the ECM Community including changes to the hosting and platforms.

wondering if there are any other ways to recover it, i.e. google should have cached a lot of post during the period.

http://web.archive.org/web/201412170741 ... place.com/ looks like this archive site has a snapshot of ecmplace.com on Dec 17.

Interesting site, never heard of it.

I can log in, but I cannot log in as an admin so I cannot pull a backup of the site.

maybe we should send an email to info@archive.org?

I don't think so, it's a page cache archive. Anything we might find would be a page post, not new users, etc. and I'm not searching for and retyping 20 plus days of posts that wouldn't be attributed to the posters.
