NEWS: Some accounts lost to database corruption

Post by miniwargaming » Fri Jun 30, 2017 11:26 am

Hey everybody,

Unfortunately the forum database had some data corruption due to an unknown error which has caused a bunch of accounts and posts to be deleted.

I have no reason to suspect hackers at this point, as the problem couldn't really be caused by hacking, but is more likely due to a hardware malfunction which I'm looking into.

If you can't log in to the forum, please go back to the main site at https://www.miniwargaming.com, log out, and then log back in. This should recreate your forum account, although it will no longer be associated with your past posts.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. I'm still looking into what caused it so that I can try to prevent it in the future.

Matthew

The forum is still acting crazy for me. I am finally able to log back in though, albeit with a new account.

For some reason, all the menus are open when viewing the forum.

Same, all menus are open by default, and also all the forum indices are flooded with folder images for me.

The Menus are also defaulted open. When going into the full-text editor as well the quick code buttons are missing icons. The Hover over description is still working though.

Sorry to hear you're having issues, Matt. Hope all this gets fixed soon! Also, I don't have mod rights anymore so thanks for looking into it once you get a chance.

Hah! Ronin's not a mod anymore! Quick, everyone make fun of him while he's powerless!!!

Hey Ronin, your painting skills only make me moderately envious. Take that!

I'm working on this. I had to update the forum to a new version, but the template that we're using didn't have an update. Unfortunately it is now a long weekend so I'll have to work on this next week.

Sorry!

I will start a separate thread for these to not derail this.
