Is it just me or can no-one else view any posts?

Of course, you won't be able to see this if you can't, but that'll tell me yes :-)

For some reason I can only read this one, wth is going on.

Yep, me too. And If you click on anyone's name (except mine because I've posted, and your's is probably ok now too), it says that they aren't registered with the server! (e.g. I randomly clicked on Square's name!)

Clicking on "New Posts" gives a DB error as well. I think some data has gone funny.......

08-09-2007, 02:50 PM
I can click on peoples name and no DB error, eg i clicked on ithgar's everything came up ok but i do get the other posts problem

08-09-2007, 02:50 PM
odd.....this is the only post i can see that doesnt give me a database error and is visible

I saved the compiled strategy. If that is what you mean..

08-09-2007, 03:09 PM
yeah, thats part of it. i also wanted the BoB strat and the first few posts of the eskadra barracks.

08-09-2007, 03:10 PM
Wooho.. i also wan't to save a few things... i was away for a couple of days and kinda hoping they would take it down later tonight.

I also can't view any threads other than this one. Mayhap they disabled access to the threads so they could delete them in peace?
(I have no clue and am just throwing out ideas)

EDIT: I strongly believe that to be the case, as my post count is 797, it was quite a bit above 1000 before. Still could be wrong though.

08-09-2007, 03:14 PM
My postcount is still the same I think, but I never pay attention to it.

They aren't deleting anything, I don't see any TA's or MYIS people on here. My guess is that the forums have another error within.

Can we move away from MyIS please? This kind of thing happens far too often and is not a good advertisement for this tournament at all.

Khar said he was gonna reset people's postcounts... He might've been joking though, in which case the post count thing is a side effect of the forums messing up.

I get the "No thread specified" message when I click on the link to the last post in every forum section, and I get a DB error when I try to go to the forum sections themselves. :wha:

Edit: Funny, I can see the Support Forum just fine. And, obviously, this thread.

I knew the forums would implode if someone tried to delete Gp's Mess Hall!

Looks like the nuke hit harder than originally projected!

I think this has something to do with deleting the divisional forums.

^^^|Wilhelm;264125']I think this has something to do with deleting the divisional forums.

But the divisional forums are still there. Well, the headings are, but there's no content at all.

I can currently see two threads, this one and one that Kommi just posted in the Future Development forum. So basically anything posted after everything went screwy, can be seen.

Now I don't know how the DB is arranged, but I'm thinking that the threads and posts are in one DB table, and the headings in another, and some berk has truncated/cleared out the posts DB table so that the headings are there but they point to nothing. Equally because of this, anything newly created is fine.

I could of course be wrong :-)

08-09-2007, 04:04 PM
Yep, I can see everything, but the Gp Barracks gives an sql/php error.

Kids, don't merge a 200+ page thread with a 270+ thread, it breaks the forums.

EDIT: Oh wait, nothing works. How fun?

08-09-2007, 04:58 PM
We all blame Passky.

Did the Mess Hall actually bork the forums or are we just being used as a scapegoat? (Reason tells me it's the latter, but a warm fuzzy feeling inside tells me it's the former)

08-09-2007, 08:31 PM
Without a doubt, blame this one on Karida's lack of spam control in her Gp Barracks :P.

08-09-2007, 08:40 PM
470 Page Thread, good job Gp spammers :P (Seriously good job getting the forums back quickly and next time we will have more threads with less posts)

08-09-2007, 08:51 PM
Or is the less threads with more posts? :wink: And yeah, good job on getting the forums up and running.

The forum database crapped out when Trexer was attempting to delete the overly bloated Gp barracks as part of the Great Purge. Apparently the massive thread merge someone decided was a good idea didn't help matters.

But, and I rarely say this folks, the good helpers at MyIS, jumped right on the issue and got us back up in relatively quick order (considering the work involved to do that).

Lessons learned. Don't expect us to allow the company barracks to go completely feral again.
