...or has Bandaids deleted most of yesterday's posts?
I thought the same thing. My rep. has gone down because of deleted posts
There was so much spam last night, that's probably why.
Not your imagination. Unfortunately, we had to restore from a backup of the database, so about a day's worth of posts was lost. It's not that many posts in the grand scheme of things, but yeah it sucks.
I spent about 2-3 hours last night cleaning out spam and the spambots. That was probably because of some settings that had to be changed to fix the login issue people were having.
But hopefully things are back to normal now (fingers crossed).
I think it's my fault.
The site crashed literally about a minute after I made a truly awful pun in the "Shortest women" thread.
Yo! I want to take a look at what hacked this site. Did you guys just delete everything from the 31st of Jan 2012? Did you back up the DB with the spam posts?
*drops to knees*
Why fate? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY????!!!?!?! *air grab*
*kneels over further until face is on floor, sobbing and slamming fist on ground repeatedly*
*camera pans out upwards and image fades to black*
Yeah, in reply to my trying-to-be-serious post there.
Thanks for your time and effort fixing things.
Nothing was hacked.
