As far as I know the exploration forum has been limited to a certain amount of stickies by 'higher ups', which is a shame because its by far the most creative forum on the entire Frontier Developments website (imho ). Full of fantastic content players have put together, but limited to what can and can't be stickied.
Hopefully this will mean my 'missing' discoveries will still stand, although I'm not in-game to check these out just yet.Hi!
We had a little longer to wait but I do have some awesome news for you!
The data "lost" in the server upgrade was actually only the visibility of the systems you scanned (mostly during 5th to the 6th of October). What this means is that the scanned data you obtained was intact for the entire time, just hidden from you (and me). The conclusion is that you'll still be given (or have been given) credit for all of this data, and all of your first-discovered tags will be applied (but may not show until you look at the system again). This is all assuming your scanned data isn't lost by death
That means we should never really have an issue with scanned data and you'll not have lost out on anything other than some visibility of a small set of systems.
I hope this all makes sense, and a huge thanks for your patience while I looked into the issue. If you need a hand with anything else or you have any followup questions, please ask!
It's been a pleasure, Fly safe!

In my experience the Neutron Fields are the richest ELW regions. Of course if you jump from neutron to neutron you won't notice that, but if switch back in realistic mode you'll see how many hot stars are in there!!! And generally systems get sort of scrambled in the neutron fields. Getting rimwise they become rarer and rarer, untill the extarnal rims where there are few ELWs.@ Fidden: glad to hear that!
Also, @ Akira: your newest ones are in as well. I'd rep you again if I could, but I need to spread it around again.
Funny that you should mention ELW rich areas, though - it seems like there really are regions where they are more or less frequent. I've been scouring the NGC 2286 cluster for days, finding nothing, then a few jumps after I leave, bam, Earth-like in a different sector. (Looked like a binary pair, in fact... but as it turns out, one was a water world, as it had an average temperature of 380K due to having 13.5% water in the atmosphere.) So yeah, the Stellar Forge is a dark mistress indeed.
