User Points and Upvotes

Dev AndrewGarrison  3.5 years ago

I just wanted to write a quick note to let everyone know what's going on. I'm sure many of you have already noticed that the upvotes and points have been erased. I am looking into the issue now and I will keep you posted. Sorry about the inconvenience.

UPDATE Looks like the database table was dropped when we updated the website this morning. We have backups of the database, so I'm working on restoring the data.

UPDATE Okay, I have been trying to restore the table from the database backup. Unfortunately the backup software we used is no longer compatible with the the database software our service provider is using. I regret to inform everyone that we will not be able to restore the upvotes or user points.

IMPORTANT

Everyone please visit this spreadsheet and write down your user name and the number of points you had prior to today. Thank you and we apologize for the inconvenience.

SHWEW!

UPDATE Okay, guys I think I fixed it. I dug deep into my database development reference and found some tricks that I was able to employ to get the data back from the old backups. I think everything should be good now. Thank you everyone for sticking with us!

HAVE A HAPPY APRIL FOOL'S DAY!!

    @SpiritusRaptor Consider "grain of salt" when I comment on Andrew Garrison's April 1 posts!

    @ihebDagon21 Ich brauche einen Übersetzer zu verwenden, so tut mir leid, wenn ich das falsch sagen. Sie müssen den "Share" -Button am oberen Rand der linken Seite des Menüs im Editor zu verwenden.

    @SpiritusRaptor Apple OSX/iOS users appreciate that you've got @AndrewGarrison #. Up to you, sometimes, to iron-out the occasional glitch.
