    Seconded, why hasn't this happened? Unless it's going to happen after we restore the backup, which'd probably be a smart idea.

    Naw, you're reading it right, QJimbo is a homie.

    And I like Chimpo as a Moderator, he has the attitude for it, is dedicated to the community, and I've never found anything to fault with him.

Also, do the backups of Retro not have the topics stored in their correct forums? It would seem that most of the thousands of topics should be quickly matchable that way if somebody just wrote a sorting script using the current data and the most recent backup.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    The biggest problem is, surprise, getting the backup uploaded. The first time, it was corrupt and took the server down with it. The second time (several hours later) timed out while SS was sleeping right at the beginning; the third time it was corrupt (again).

    So yeah.

    I honestly didn't know that Sonic Retro was having server problems, but I guess that's because my broadband was slow during that time because I already reached my peak limit.

    But it's good to see it up and running again.

    Hey guys! Just a heads up—we've finished moving all of the topics back into their rightful place. Everything is—for all intents and purposes—entirely back to normal. Crisis averted! :D

    Big thanks to nineko, who probably fronted the brunt of the work, as well as the other mods—Chimpo, Gene, Overlord, SS, etc. Hopefully we can put this incident behind us now that we've come out of it completely unscathed. :)

    You better make monthly backups or I'll kill you.
