Broken Posts? Link them here!
So, as a side effect of the announced unexpected downtime that was either caused by or not helped by the database corruption, the restoration and upgrade process apparently aet some post content.

If you find such a post, link to it here and we'll follow up with getting it restored.

(Admins: If you could be so kind if you handle one to edit the report post to strike it through to prevent duplication for no reason, that would be great!)

Re: Broken Posts? Link them here!
The interview board was hit pretty bad. See here, here and here, and quite probably more.

Grabbed. Thank you. Z

Re: Broken Posts? Link them here!
There's one or two in the HLP-Xcom threads.

Woah! About 70% of my posts from this thread have been truncated (you can tell because there's no punctuation on the end). Is that enough to go by, or would you like links to every post?

Took a while, but I got them. I think. Z

Re: Broken Posts? Link them here!
Here, on one of the internal mod boards.

Is a restore-all solution in the works?

Edit:  Should be fixed now, and I believe goober was looking at a way to try and do a compare and fix thing - Rev

Re: Broken Posts? Link them here!
This is admittedly pretty minor :nervous: but my "Whatcha Listenin' To?" thread used to be called "Whatcha Listenin' To? © 2012". I guess the "© 2011" similarly went missing from Bob-san's thread from last year.

Edit:  Fixed titles on both - Rev

In order to do a compare-and-fix, I need copies of both the backed-up table and the current table. :nervous:  I was going to download them myself, but was wary of freezing the forums.  If you can send me just smf_messages, Rev, I can start something.

I would have to pull a copy of the DB just like you would.  I would say your best bet would be to ssh in and get a dump via mysqldump then scp it to your local machine.  No matter how you slice it, it's 'prolly going to lag things a bit, but mysqldump should be the least impacting.

POSIX is fine, as is Rev or RP.  EMail, PM or leaving me an IM on ICQ, even if I'm not showing up as online. is the best way to get ahold of me.

Your guess is as good as mine on that one, being that the community is international, therefore 24/7

ionice -c3 mysqldump?
rsync --bwlimit=512 -avP? (or scp -l if pscp.exe or similar support it)

Those are some of the tricks I use when I need to pull large amounts of data from a "sensitive" server... although obviously it can take ages to complete.
