Restoration Note

Posted by docbyron on August 19th, 2017 at 19:00

I've restored most of the following that was lost from about August 1st through the 10th:

-Submissions (that weren't already re-submitted)

-User registrations (that hadn't already re-registered)

-Private messages between users who registered before August 1st

-All story edits

-All user watches where both users registered before August 1st

Things I'm not going to mess with for now:

-Story faves, votes, comments, views, and tags

-Profile comments


-Messages and watches for users who registered after August 1st

The reasoning is I've noticed a lot of people have already re-done a lot of the faves/votes/comments/etc that were lost and I'd like to avoid creating a lot of confusing duplicates. It's also a pain to try to restore the data for for users and stories that were originally "lost" because the ids aren't the same.

Still, if you have anything you'd like restored, please feel free to reach out to me privately and I'd be happy to help out.


Glad that everything is back up and running. Sorry to hear about all this hassle you had to deal with
