okay that's what happened. On the previous version we had a system that automatically moved old posts in the market into a sort of "archive" section. To do so there was an auto pruning feature, unfortunately I didn't notice that until it was too late and the pruning already happened. Now it's fixed but some of the older threads are gone. It wouldn't be a big issue since I have the backup and technically it would be possible to restore them, but being the market I didn't bother since usually posts on the market have a very limited lifespan. Sorry, about that. Let me know if I can help you in any way to restore your data.
@andrewjoy category colors is in to-do. Today I'm working on something completely new, I hope I'll be able to post it later. Discourse would be quite a jump in the dark, I don't believe we would even able to restore what we already have.
well, erm, I do understand that I'm not entitled to anything since my subscription and all the benefits reaped thereof are free of charge, however, this is quite maddening. I'm offering the conversion kits for sale, hence I must place the thread within the Marketplace section of the forum, but the offer is permanent and the thread had thousands of views and quite a lot of comments as it also served as a feedback thread for DT members who had already bought a kit. It was also the main thread linked to in the documentation provided along with every purchase so about 100+ users are now no longer able to find the thread if they should try to look it up in their email history. Additionally, German computer magazine c't has recently reviewed the controller board and is linking to the thread on their homepage, so their readers cannot find the thread anymore and consequently will not discover Deskthority either.
I would really appreciate if you were so kind as to restore the thread in its most recent state. If possible, please combine the thread with my other conversion kit thread as by now all M series boards are supported. The only reason I created a second thread was to allow other members to vote and make suggestions as to which additional M series boards to support in the future. This thread also contains useful information and ought not to be deleted either.
Even better would be a new entry in the Wiki replacement controller section, but then again, that's probably too much asked, Deskthority is for the people not the profit.
