We've resolved the issues with our database and turned the forums back online. We had to revert our members list to a backup from about a week ago, so if you changed your profile since then you'll have to add those changes back in. Other than that, everything else is fine. Thanks again for your patience.View the full article

It's good too see the forums back up. Shame about the lost profile data, but there's not much to do about that, and it isn't a big issue.

 

So if we changed our names right before the forum started freaking out, would we PM an admin to get that changed again? My settings won't let me...

Oh good. At least they are back up and running, with the addition of news stories and part of the archives.

The only real bad part about the database issues is that certain individuals decided to run wild with their accidental promotions. Otherwise, this is nothing compared to some of the worse downtimes BZP has had.

Yeah, not much to say right now.

Glad to see they got back up so soon after a bout like that. Wish my post count hadn't been rolled back, though.

It's great to see that the news stories and the forums are back up. Awesome job, staff! Also, those "promotions" probably raised the hopes of some people even though it wasn't meant to be real :P.

And here I though I actually became a Premier Outstanding BZP Citizens, though once the Admin status started kicking in, well something went horribly wrong on the forum.

When I saw the hau mask and stuff I thought I was being tricked, then I noticed everyone was promoted and I wondered what had happened. Naturally I was curious when I returned to the Forum homepage and saw about a dozen more sections, but the only one I cared about reading was the one asking what the Karz was going on. And then the site went down.

 

But I am glad it's back up! Everything seems just how I remember it.

It's good that you didn't try to pry. It was pretty strange what was going on, yet the way it played out amused me.

Nope; it was a hacking. Everything appears to be under control, however.

 

Glad that the forums are back.

News stories have not been back. We have not come up with a permanent fix since we took them offline in February.
