Database crash
« on: February 08, 2013, 11:15:11 PM »
I figured I'd make a topic about this, since I imagine a bunch of bugs are going to crop up. Here's a few points:

1) We only have three themes. Are the others coming back?

2)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

3) I think the sigs have broken too. They appear to have reverted to an old version, and they don't have a scroll bar.

4) Apostrophes and speech marks are broken in various places. They work in this thread, but take a look at older posts.

5) No Karma count.

I'll add to this that the post counts have also reverted to a previous time, not sure how long we've lost in this respect but its a considerable length of time.

On the positive side of things, we still have all the latest posts and the spell check is still active.

Also, I keep getting a red box telling me to check the archive. It's mildly irritating.

Maybe it's a theme thing.

I r da anger. I thought we moved to a new database to avoid these kind of issues i.e. database crashes.

Spoilers returned and are back to their old settings.
Karma has returned.

Nothing ever seems to be invulnerable. However it is more stable than it used to be. With any luck we will be having a live backup system installed soon.

1) We only have three themes. Are the others coming back?
Seems they've been disabled but they are still there.

Drat, my post count and coveted Karma have disappeared - oh noez! Will they be coming back? :O

In other news, I am glad that all the actual posts and everything are still there. Should I wait around with changing my Profile back to its normal state, or? The red archive box is kind of irritating, it keeps make me think the post misloaded or something similar.
I need more time to do the Emperor's work!

Sorck, you do realise that the "Labs" archive is no longer accessible?

I have noticed but that'll take a few days to get back up and running... I'll have to change almost every single SMF file for it to work. :(

I will work on restoring the post counts and karma in the coming days. I should be able to restore most karma unless it was in Jan/Feb last year as I think the karmalog wasn't working properly then.

I still have a few of them saved. I've put them in an attachment in case Sorck needs them.
