We're having several of these today. I can fix them - but to save work, please tell me the member for the profile. E.g. if the error message says:

then the member number is 01234567. Post that here, and I'll fix it.

If anyone else has a similar problem, please post your member number here. Or if you see someone else with this problem, please direct them to this thread. And moderators: please close the original thread. I'm not going to respond to each thread individually.

Within the next few days I should have something set up to find these and fix them automatically. It won't be an ongoing problem. But until then, if you need a single member profile or thread fixed, post it here.

Thanks for your patience.

Also, I've modified things so people can respond to this thread without needing a registered account. So you won't need to create a new account to get your old one restored.

That's the good news, we believe it is related to some fairly significant (although invisible) changes being made to UBB. Just indexing and some code generation, but obviously it had some unforeseen side effects

I don't see a problem with that file, Ulf. And when I click on your profile, it looks fine. Are you able to reproduce an error message of some sort?

No, everything works fine. It's actually not the Profile page, but the PM page that's messed up: http://test.javaranch.com/ulf/my_private_messages.jpg

Fixed. The problem wasn't your profile; it was one of the people who'd sent you a PM. As indicated by the error message reporting the problem member number, which wasn't yours.

Hopefully this issue is mostly resolved. Thanks to JOTI*, I have closed the unregistered feature.

No, it was something I did that had insufficient error checking. A program that had to update a bunch of files - apparently with the JDK on this file system, it's possible to write a file and close the FileOutputStream (in a finally block, of course) with no errors, yet not all the bytes have been written yet. Most files were written correctly of course, but a few were not; I've been restoring the remainder from backups taken the night before the damage occurred. I was able to automate most of the restoration (detecting damaged files and replacing them), but there are a few special cases left over.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
