To Madman,

Did you guys/gals delete one of my post that i posted a few days ago? I am not a huge poster so there isn't that much to search through. The post was concerning Nausicaa that was posted in the Gibli section.

Thanks

N

On a related topic a lot of posts are missing at the moment (e.g. last post in General Anime is currently from Wed Sep 29, 2010 9:20 am). Hopefully just a blip and everything's restored soon.

The forums were down this afternoon so I assume that an older backup has been restored thus causing 2 weeks of missing posts.

Hopefully there is a backup to restore it back to normal.....

The 'OMG! WHAT COULD IT BE?' thread is gone - I am dubbing this the unofficial Madgate II Thread.

Two weeks of everything on Madman is missing. Confused We completed rooted it yesterday didn't we. Hope we get it back so we get our orders, otherwise Madman have $218 of mine with nothing to put it against.

If a restore does get put in place, will all these new threads then disappear too?

I'm guessing madman just restored the site from their last full backup, as a mean to get their site up and running and tested, then they'll probably restore from their incremental backups, till then we'll probably be lagged behind, but they'll come back.

Old threads should hopefully come back, but I'm sure the forums aren't the greatest concern rather getting the site back to its original condition quickly.

Orders will be fine though, Madman have them, it's just the site is using an older database, but I'm sure the orders would go through on another system, and will be up to date.

Depends on how they do it, if they can merge the "current database", with the "backup database", then hopefully it will go all smoothly.

That legit made me LOL. We certainly did!

As long as my orders are okay, the boards don't bother me. An acceptable casualty in the war for awesome bargains! But I would be very surprised if this was the most recent backup they had of the boards, anyway. I wouldn't rage panic just yet.

Database was fried so it's now running on a back up from 2 weeks ago. Any accounts created in this time no longer exists, so you will need to reapply.

Sorry all.

I came back after a couple of days and thought that I imagined all the posts I did from the last couple of weeks.

I sure do have an active imagination on this.
