WTF- Can we get old posts?

Postby SunCatcher on Fri Jul 04, 2008 3:04 am

Is there any possible way to get back into the old forum to retrieve posts that got cut? My first post has been deleted, and I did not back it up.

There was a notice stating that Wolf was going to update the forums and any and all posts made after his annoucement would not carry over.

I lost a few posts as well.

Dunno if anything can be done or not, but that's kindof why the warning was posted in the first place.

Gee, this was posted before the warning went out. It wasn't a new post. It's almost ALL of my posts.

A warning doesn't help at all if people don't have a chance to get on and save their stuff.

I don't think I lost anything important but that's pretty sucky for those that did.
Yeah, but can you spell it?

The ONLY posts of mine that were minced were the ones that were made quite some time ago. NOT new ones. All of my new ones are fine, actually.

But I've lost quite a bit on my breed for Gargoyles and, I believe, my Eternità breed as well. My last post with Thorn in the thread with Malachus was butchered, too.

All of those were posted before June, I believe, so...

As I stated in the topic in the Louge posts in mutants were butchered. Mine. Kozmo's. And Anere's. These were by no means new - it'd been quite for a while.

Posts in Taste of Simplicity were also killed - and also not new.

And my last profile I put up on my profile page was butchered. And as it was part of the Gargoyle breed - it was old also.

It's not a huge issue - because I save every post; but for being able to read it later and to keep for history... some people don't always save posts.

I didn't see the notice Wolf put up. Not that it ended up mattering much for me; because I didn't post anything. But still.

No kidding! I usually wait till the thread is dead before saving it. I'm NOT posting anything impostant till I'm sure the forum is secure again.

I am one of those people who doesn't save posts, which doesn't really apply to my roleplaying forums, but my breed profile, the Gargoyles, was lost as well, and I'd like that back, if there's any way to do so.

Adra said that the original post cutting was due to the automatically imposed character limit. She's removed the limit, so nothing should happen to any new posties, Koz.


But so far, no one's said anything about recovering posts. =/ I hope Wolf can help with this.

One would think there are backups, especially before an upgrade.
May the light shine always soft and warm upon you,
may the breeze carry you the scents and sounds of eternal Spring,
just as my heart will dwell forever in Autumn without you,
and the bell that tolls for me will ever ring.

Okay, so I just got back from my vacation, and I hate to sound like a nag, but are we any closer to having a way to get the full version of our old botched posts back?

Nope. I'm trying to reconstruct my Aeramis post BEFORE trying with Affy, and it's not working!

I don't want to sound like a nag either, but honestly it needs to be done or said it can't be done.

If there is no way to do it, then people will have to rework rolepays, and the sooner that's announced the sooner we can get on with everything.

If there is a way, and we know that, but only Wolf can do it. I know he's busy, and I hate to bother him... but this thread has been up since the third. And it is now the twenty third. Can someone get ahold of him any other way than WW PM? Cause if he's not on WW - he can't read his PMs.

I just want to know the answer, cause I want to get on with things, ya know?

I say give it a time of death and take its organs already.
