So after all the downtime, my host has restored a backup that's several weeks old. Sigh.

Please hold off posting anything important for a few days (or keep local copies), as there may still be a chance to restore the missing data (in which case anything posted from here until that restore will be wiped).

apparently I signed up for the site after the most recent backup, because I tried to login and it said my username didnt exist, and the 5 or 6 posts I had made in that time are also gone, so I had to sign up for a new account

On the bright side, the site is becoming more active and people are showing interest  :-D

edit: also my posts were cut by more than half, but i see that some topics that were started fairly recently are still there. Does that mean the information is being restored or am i just unlucky for losing all my posts?

Thanks a lot for your efforts Qhimm. I know it's hard to keep any interest after all these years.

I was very afraid for a little bit there.

Thanks for the work.

Unfortunately I was one of the members that fell victim to the losing-account-part and lost my account since I hadn't joined up several weeks ago. No biggie though.

Note this email. I kept in touch while it was down and knew about their hardware failure. Once they responded to me, all my worries went away  :)

might not be a good idea to make them public, we don't want qhimm getting spammed lol

Good idea, I always forget about that. I took one down. The other was displayed publicly as a means of contact when the site was down. Figure if that's the case, it's already gone public enough heh

I also noticed the number of unregistered people viewing the site at any one time is much higher than when i first joined. I suppose this is a good thing.

I have a potential suggestion for preserving the wiki at least for offline use.

Kiwix is a offline reader for wiki's like wikipedia.

It's nearly 1.0 however it does use a preexisting format. So essentially their isn't much too do with it apart from browse a wiki with it (in ZIM format).

That being said all things considered it may be a via wiki back up source.
