    I have as far as i can see fixed the guest issue.

    You now should see old avatars, post counts and the rest. Im slowly repairing more of the database. So be patient im working the best i can and nobody else is around with server access.

    Let me see how far i can go. Trying to fix everything but im guessing not 100% possible.
    We shall see.

    Updating thanks now, it wont reflect anything up to date, i think something was lost, not my doing, not sure what database we are working on here, i have not been told anything just seen it this morning and was all screwed up, i will repair everything that im given, if it does not reflect anything recent dont worry, when Dave is on ill see whats going on.

    But until then, everything is being repaired for the database im working on now.

    Ok thats the best i can do without new root access.

    Everythings fixed as far as this database is concerned, thanks are accurate and avatars should be the new avatars, sigs have been lost. Itrader needs reinstalled.

    Usertitles should be accurate atleast with this database. When Dave is back we will have to run a mass update on those who have been lost in the payments.

    Everything else looks fine apart form missing posts, nothing more i can do with this until i have root access to the new server.

    Sorry for the trouble it will cause anyone, i woke to find myself being a guest :) so ive fixed all those issues as much as i can.

    Nice work HaRRo! Thank you very much

    For all people who have lost sig in their old post here is a way to get all those sig back

    Go to "User CP" click "Edit Signature" and reupload your sig. Check your old post now...your sig will be back

    Hope this helps some of the buddies :)

    So the situation is not serious right? I saw on BHUnivesity that DD said his outsourcer was working to fix the forum or something like that. Several hours ago I was a guest too, but apart from lost posts and demotions I think everything is normal. I think people lost a % of posts, someone with 10 posts loses 3 or 4, while someone like Havok lost 500. I'm confident this will be sorted out, but what caused this? A database corruption or is it somehow related to DDoS and other attacks that BHW has suffered?

    Hi Harro

    Good work!

    I think the people who have a few extra problems are newbies like myself. I think my account was lost totally. I've had to sign up under a new name.

    Do you think the newbie accounts might be recovered?

    Thanks:)

    I think more worryingly is the fact that I've set up a new account to get back in and I've got other peoples PM's in this new account!
