Downtime and missing post earlier explanation Thread

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys as you may have noticed earlier we had a case of nearly all our threads going missing and some quite lengthy downtime earlier.

 

What happened was a staff member abused access to delete a large amount of content. We restored from a database backup to put things back in order. Only about 18 hours worth of posts were lost, so haven't lost hardly any content :), the staff member in question has been removed from his position for the foreseable future.

 

Luckily with me and Bill knowing each other quite a few years now we have other means of communication if SS is ever down, we had a nice discussion about what happened and safeguards have been put in place to prevent anything like this ever happening again so rest assured all your content is 110 percent safe :D.

 

Any questions/love/hate for me or Bill post them here :ph34r:

Long story. Short version is this: He and Galataman never really got along. He was pushing to have Galataman's mod powers removed, and I wouldn't agree to that. So the childish response was to try to erase the forum.

 

Fortunately we have very good daily backups. It just takes a bit of time to restore everything properly.
