    This morning I deleted all users from before 2010-01-01 who didn't confirm their email yet, ie. users that entered a wrong or non-working email addres .. at least that's what I thought.

    I seems in reality I deleted a large chunk of our users, so I had to restore the last backup.

    Sorry :(

    some avatars, sigpics or attachments might still be broken, please report them here
     
    theJesus, Triprift, Mussels and 26 others say thanks.

    I was wondering why I couldn't log in... had to reset my password. Also, it seems one of my threads disappeared... it was titled "when did nvidia start using dedicated physx chips" or something like that.

    My personal data is alright, I just noticed that the masterpiece that I made for erocker in this thread is gone :(. Was it considered abusive or against the rules? (Wondering why I didn't get an infraction...) If so, I'm sorry. I though it would be entertaining and a good tribute.

    There is a lot of missing data.
    Like I said, it looks like about 30 hours worth.
    I am missing several PMs and lots of threads have been rewound in time.
    Do not assume things were removed because they were innapropriate.
