My main doesn't exist. Help!

Postby Barberria » Sun Apr 11, 2021 5:05 pm

This is the puppet of Sincluda. My forum account for my main seems to have ceased to exist. When I try to log in, it cites an incorrect password. All my posts are gone (except in quotes, which don't link to post/poster like they usually do) and threads changed ownership to the first replier. One example: https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=500208. Is this related to the SQL error after the recent spam attack? Or something else?

Or is this a ban? I know that this question belongs in moderation, but it's going to have to go on this thread. I can't imagine why I would be banned, but I'm confused, upset, and scared.

Looks like something borked up. I'll flag the techies on it. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Thanks! TBH, it wasn't going to be an inconvenience unless permanent, which I doubted. Glad that the spam got sorted out tho. Would gladly sacrifice my account for that.

More info: My main does not show up on the user list either, not even as an ex-nation or anything

Your forum profile has indeed vanished into thin air. :unsure:

There doesn't seem to be a sync problem, and I've verified that your nation is linked to the correct forum ID... but everything forumside is gone. I can see in the logs that you edited posts, but all those no longer exists.

I can probably dig the posts out of an April 14 backup, but it will take a few hours of work to extract them and filter them back into threads, as this has never happened before. But I am prepared to do that if the posts were valuable. What do you think?

One of the posts was an OP for a GA proposal, and others were replies to that OP. Those are worth recovering, as there are some GAers who are wondering what the heck happened there. Thread: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=500208

Yeah, the GA proposal is the only one that's really important. Thanks, [v]

It would be nice if you could. Only the posts in the GA proposal thread are important. You're the best :)

The proposal is actually quoted in the (new) OP in that thread, isn't it? So I don't need to dig it out of a backup.

What we can do is create a new forum profile for you, get you to repost that content, then manually fiddle around with the database to make that post the new OP.

That sounds great. Thank you so much for all your help. I'm sorry that you had to deal with this. You're the best!

Sincluda should be able to post in the forums now, although, as discussed, the post history is gone. If you create a new post somewhere with the OP text for that thread, I'll shove it back in there.

The first guy who quoted the proposal donated his post to Sincluda, so no further actions is needed.
