Houston, we have a problem!

Postby Wanobi » View Wanobi's OpenRaid characters » Mon Apr 02, 2018 10:19 am

After not being to access the site for a couple days I finally am able to get back in...

to discover that not only was my upcoming event cleared from existence, the last couple weeks of event history was gone as well.

What happened, and is there going to be a fix?

Need to know so I don't duplicate stuff (and know for future reference).

I also noticed the past couple of weeks of my history has been removed/deleted and just assumed this happened during the recovery process. I was unable to leave feedback for the event I attended last Friday because it is missing as well. Any word on this site admins?

This is not official answer as I am not a site admin or owner, only moderate it during my free time these days.

From what I have heard, something happened on the server and the only option they had to get the site back online was to restore it from a backup.

They tried multiple backups and the most stable was mid March.

Any data which was added to the site since Mid (I don't have the exact date) March no longer exists.

Even an unofficial answer helps.

I went looking on the twitter page and everything trying to figure out what was going on, because I started getting e-mail notifications about messages from years ago and everything.

I knew something was going on...I just didn't know what the "something" was.
