We're back!!

Postby Rommeltje » Sun Jun 15, 2014 10:55 pm

Welcome back everybody! You can exhale again, we've made a full recovery! :whoop:

For those who have no idea what happened the past couple of days: I - more or less accidentally - did a database restore using a faulty backup file, as a result of which about 30.000 posts suddenly vanished. Nearly everything after December 2011 was gone, and I was like :twitch:. The most recent working backup was from February 2013. And then, after trying a few things, most of the PMs disappeared as well.

Well, it took me a lot of effort and self-education, and a couple of very long nights, but in the end I managed to rebuild the entire database, so we can carry on as if nothing ever happened. :D

Ok, there are still a few small things that aren't right. Such as that a lot of topics show the last post as being made by "Guest" rather than giving the username of the last poster, and every post with zero replies is listed as having 1 reply, but those are minor things. Perhaps I'll fix them as yet, but if not, no big deal. The search engine is also broken, but I'm working on that and it will be repaired very soon.

If you notice anything else that's not right, please let me know.

For now, back to gloving! :yay:

Glad to see you got the site working again Rom! I didn't know what I would do if the world couldn't read my brilliant glove-related posts... or at least I thought they were brilliant when I was drunk off my ass writing them...
