I just traced down a major issue...
The Simple Press "Inactive Members Account Auto Removal" feature can and will delete admin users - even the default WP user ID 1 account.
As a security precaution - we had stopped using our user ID 1 admin account last year after a hack attempt, but that account was the author of most of our sites older pages, blog posts, and media files.
On 9/11 this year - that account vanished, along with all content that had been written by that user, and even files that had been uploaded.
Considering the 9/11 date - we suspected malware or some sort of attack. Only after a lot of digging were we able to trace this back to Simple Press.
This seems like a bug / design flaw. A feature designed to purge old users in a forum should not be removing site admins.
Thoughts? Has anyone else run into this?

No other reports. I can guarantee that if we had heard of this before then it would have been fixed to not happen. Assuming you are correct in your diagnosis all I can do is apologise for the bug and promise it will be fixed for the next update. I have opened a ticket to ensure that happens.
