Server Crash

Post by formermarcher2 » Tue Mar 23, 2004 1:27 pm

Okay guys...server died for a bit.
If you'll notice, off-topic has taken a severe hit to its posting, and some people's accounts have been erased, including several moderator spots. Marching bands has been pretty much untouched. I'm not sure how colorguard was effected.

If your account has been erased, I recommend you just have some patience. I'm sure Dave will have this all sorted out as quickly as he can.

There also seems to be bugs left in the system, as is shown by this temporary account of mine. New posters seem to be suddenly responsible for posts that are older than thier accounts.

Please save everyone the trouble of dealing with PM's...the mods that still exist can't really do much, and the admin's are doing all they can right now and I'm sure they'd be grateful if you didn't send a PM telling them that the server is down, posts are missing, etc.

Thanks guys!

After conferring briefly with Dave, this is what is going to be tried:

The hosting server is going to try to restore the website from a backup that was taken BEFORE the server crash. This would mean that the broken accounts will be fixed, and everything would pretty much return to normal.

It's looking good!

The server crash last weekend has corrupted the user database. :( AND the web hosting comapny just told me that they screwed up and deleted their back-up of the data before there could restore it for me. :shock: So... I have a copy of the users database from a several months ago. If your account is missing and you have been a member since last September you send me your username and I can restore your account. Also send me your total number of postings so I can reset that data for you too. If you have registered since last September and your accoint is missing you will have to re-register using your old username. Just send me your toal posting you should have so I can set your ranking. I am so sorry for this inconvenience.
