    It really sucks that mepman went berserk and all. If you guys need any help re-writing any guides we had before, I'm here for you.

    Apparently he used his mod abilities for evil instead of good. Atleast thats what I heard.

    From what I've read he just started changing and deleting everyone's posts and then deleted all the threads in the games forum.

    This is an isolated incident. All of our mods were chosen for a reason, we just made a mistake with mepman.

    You definitely have a point. Most of the mods are actually pretty cool and do their jobs.

    Whoever started this site should make backups every few days, thats how my old site was. I hope you are working on restoring the backup or your learning how to make backups. Its not a matter of if this will happen again its a matter of when. Because theres always going to be queer mods out there, the only way to protect your site is with backups.

    it's not quite that simple. of course backups were made. however, if you understand how the data is stored relationally in the database, you will see that it is not so easy to restore only parts of it (i.e. threads and posts in a specific forum)

    I know. But in my opinion if you can only restore the whole forum, then I would do it. If your last backup is like over two weeks old then I'm not sure if I would.
