    Good news everyone! After spending an eternity putting tables together by hand, I have recovered the entirety of the old forum up to January 22, 2012.

    The vast wealth of knowledge, memories, and history can be found here, and I will update the Navbar atop this forum to link to it.

    You are free to login, read old PMs, browse the forum, and anything that doesn't tamper with existing posts. I've disabled most options but the permissions table in the database is still corrupted so it might allow you to do things you shouldn't be able to. If you find yourself able to change something, please don't. :)

    Enjoy.

    Your website guy,

    Bug Blaqk, I can't login on the old forum. Login details correct but same issue as the old "use notdstarcraft.com/fiorum vs forum.notdstarcraft.com" issue

    I had that worked out but it's rearing its head again. I'm getting tired of having to manually adjust that value.

    No rest for the wicked.

    Check your URL. Make sure it isn't trying to stick you in the old one.

    I'm logged in just fine.

    It's fixed for real this time. The issue is my Frankenstein tables not syncing properly with MySQL.

    Ah, and I can see some of my old crazy ideas... heh. So much hatred for the Cyberneticist.

    There's still a lot of work to be done for the sake of security, stability, and efficiency.

    Here's a list of known issues:

    1) I somehow broke the NOTD logo during style sheet repairs.
    2) The usergroup table is corrupted and unwritable.
    3) All present links are broken.
    4) Bloated tables (like the 248 unactivated registrations that I'm in the process of deleting).

    I'm too afraid to try a mass deletion for all the spam accounts since the existence of that thing is fairly delicate.

    Not sure if it is a bug but are we supposed to see the old Black Ops board, as a guest?

    Yes. With consent, I opened that to the public. Not much point in keeping all of that secret anymore.

    Oh!

    Whichever of you spam clicked a broken attachment at 4:09pm GMT-5 just sent 17 emails titled "MyBB error on NOTD Forum Archive" to my inbox.

    Thanks...

    I can almost bet it was one of my attachments. Since I had 17 PAGES of them.

    I don't want to steal Kithrixx's fire so read this thread first.

    Through the use of some serious vodoo, attachments are now repaired. You should now be able to view just about everything ever uploaded as an attachment.

    So I just deleted 15,000 accounts. <.<

    That's right. 15,000 spam accounts were registered to the old forum.

    God bless the tighter security we have now.
