Disclose.tv experienced a severe server crash recently and we were not able to retrieve the most important data base tables from the broken partitions. Unfortunately also our data base backup processes stopped working months ago without our notice. Up to this day we do not know what exactly caused these disastrous problems. However, we eliminated any hardware issues as the root cause.

In light of this we had to go back to a manually taken data base dump from February 2013. Thus, e.g. all new user registrations, password changes, media uploads and forum posts are lost since that date ☹

However, we might be able to allocate the media uploads (since 02/13) at least to an anonymous user (crashuser), but will not be able to rebuild the original data base entries with the correct relations between media uploads and users.

We are still in the process of cleaning up the mess caused by the server crash. Until then, some parts of the website may not be available yet (e.g. the new voice chat) or may not work as intended.

I am very, very sorry for any inconvenience caused. At the end it was my fault, but I am happy the site is back online now and hope, the community can recover from this awful incidence…

Good night (I am very tiered right now, had not very much sleep the last days),

Bit harsh blaming yourself Lucas, at the end of the day shit happens.

"We eliminated any hardware issues as the root cause."
If it wasn't the hardware then what does that leave for options? :headscratch:
Does this mean this could happen again at the whim of some hacker?

I'm glad we're up and running again so thank you for your efforts Lukas... :cheers:
Not to worry, I'll be starting a new anomalies thread later tonight.
