Downtime Tonight
« on: July 30, 2008, 09:34:50 PM »
Found some issues with the way the legacy data was mapped in the new system, and working through that.

The unfortunate part is that I can't have people editing data while I correct the issue, so the site has to come down for a little while.

I'll keep you posted, it shouldn't take more than a few hours!

Ok, we're back.

There was a data inconsistency issue with some legacy accounts that at first I thought were no big deal... but the more I researched into it, the more I realized this would snowball exponentially as more and more people started using the site.

With the imminent release of a new TNT, I figured it'd be best to deal with this NOW with only a few accounts affected rather than later when it became a majority. 

The good news?  I think it's fixed 100%, and going forward there should be a lot fewer of the strange issues we've been seeing.  I don't think anyone's account was adversely affected, but PLEASE post here and let me know if anything looks off.

The bad news?  I totally munged up all the uploaded custom character images - and the backup I made JUST IN CASE I screwed up this badly.  It was a mistake of epic proportions!  :gonk:  I'm really sorry guys, I know a lot of you had spent a lot of time uploading those pictures... I'd give you a refund, but ... well this is free and I'm broke :)

Well, that does explain why all of my profile pictures were suddenly gone. 

No biggie, I kept the "master copies" of the screen caps in a folder anyway.  Just gotta upload them again.

I was hoping that wasn't the only way to make a News Post lol.

Or at least not the only easy way if there was another way.
