Today, most of the stickied posts across the forum are gone--maybe some of them completely gone, since a couple forums on the forum index page now point to missing posts as the latest post. : o

I wonder if we had a little database hiccup?

Seems to have been an oddly specific hiccup. Me, wendy, Jon Dalton, and a fair number of other old regulars have been completely erased, including all of our posts.

Hi guys,

Wendy notified me and indeed there seems to be something up with the forums. She's getting in touch with Ash to look into this asap.

Oppy's been having a poke round and it looks like it's worse than just disappearing users. Hopefully Ash can revert whatever happened, because it's beyond's Oppy's abilities to fix and I'm not even an admin right now.

And today was going so well too.

Edit: I'm an admin again. Nothing I can personally do about the missing accounts though, but at least I can deal with any bots that show up.

I got an email from Ash this morning and he's looking into it.

Everybody keep your fingers crossed.

Eesh the post vanishings seem to have screwed up the page counts of old threads, like they no longer go for as many pages as the thread thinks they do, so if you click the number links for later pages in the thread, you get an error screen--like in this thread and this thread in Gubbins.

Yep. Nothing that can be done about that unless the old accounts can be restored I'm afraid. It's one of the reasons why we can't just delete spambots. Deleted accounts still leave a mark on any threads they've posted in unless the posts were individually deleted before the account was.

On the plus side, assuming Ash has a solid backup of the database, a rollback won't be as catastrophic as it was back in 2007...Y'know, since usage has dropped so much...

Well... this explains why I no longer seemed to be a member here when I tried to log in this morning. Confused

I made a new account after the old one got lost. Now that new account is also gone.
