Forum downtime - SoulRiser - 09-14-2009 05:30 AM

Basically, someone deleted all their posts (over 4000 of them).. that's why I restored a forum backup. Losing that many posts affects a lot of discussions and kinda makes them not make so much sense anymore. So, that's why we can't let people delete all of their posts. So don't post anything you might want to get rid of again, K? Razz

The past 12 hours of posts were lost because of the backup restore (well, not completely - they're just in a different database and will have to be manually restored by hand). So if you posted anything really important... I hope you have a backup of it XD

I can set up a copy of the 'newer' forum so you can see the newer posts. Or something.

EDIT:
I have set up a copy of the "newer" version of the forums here:

Use it to read & retrieve anything you need to... but try not to actually post or reply there 'cause it's just temporary. If you wanna respond to something, copy & paste it onto this copy of the forums and then reply to that.

Well, I don't understand how someone could delete so many of their posts, because you can't delete your post after someone posted after it, unless you have mod powahs. But I checked the post whores list and nobody has less posts than the last time I went over it.

I think that was the point of the forum restoration, so that the posts would come back.


Re: Forum downtime - returnal - 09-14-2009 05:46 AM

Oh, kk.


Re: Forum downtime - Thought Criminal - 09-14-2009 06:03 AM

Some threads confuse me now, but it's all good.


Re: Forum downtime - Spot-ify - 09-14-2009 06:46 AM

Oh, that is why some of my posts have gone. I nearly raged.


Re: Forum downtime - Thought Criminal - 09-14-2009 06:48 AM

I did rage. lol, I'm making up by posting double what I did before.


Re: Forum downtime - The Desert Fox - 09-14-2009 06:54 AM

So that's what happened. My Freeman toaster porn thread was lost. Now someone put one more up.


Re: Forum downtime - Thought Criminal - 09-14-2009 06:58 AM

I put one up


Re: Forum downtime - Vatman - 09-14-2009 12:18 PM

I would really love it if you could get back the whole topic in voices in your head, Soul. I really don't feel like typing that out again.


Re: Forum downtime - Thought Criminal - 09-14-2009 12:19 PM

Yeah that really bit. I had a really long response for you too.


Re: Forum downtime - returnal - 09-14-2009 12:28 PM
