Forum crash!

Postby AshTrai » 08 Jan 2019, 23:50

The forum has experienced a bit of a "hiccup" which has resulted in me having to restore the database from a backup....which was taken a year ago!

This means that anybody who signed up in the last year (13/12/2017 to be precise) will need to remake your account. Once your account is remade, you will need to ask an Officer or GM to add you to the relevant group to get the access you should have back again.
It also means that if you changed your password in the last year that will have been reverted back to the one you used on 13/12/2017. If you can't remember it, then get Alyssia to reset it for you.
Moral of the story: Don't let Tharkun near any sparkly objects! :stick:

A lot of our various info/recruitment posts both in the public section as well as those for members only will be hugely out of date until I get around to updating it all, so just keep that in mind. Should be able to get through most of it in the coming days, but until I give an update consider it all out of date.

Re-added [spoiler] tags to the forum on Alyssia's request.

I also found a dodgy program on the server that hosts the website+teamspeak. It was dated 4/1/2019 so was something recently put on there. I've removed it for now and tightened up the firewall a bit. Also put a virus/malware scanner on there. The dodgy program was hammering cpu so hopefully with it gone, the site should load faster now.

I''ve gone over most of the various info threads now, so it should be more or less up to date. So all of you please let me know if you spot something that I might have missed :)

Also @Ashtrai: can't do size/colouring for the spoiler= headding, any chance you could fix that bit as well? xD

What do u mean?
U can't do size/colouring on the text inside the spoiler tags?
There is a lot of html text formatting going on inside the spoiler tag code so it might be that, at a first guess
