Caddiac User Account was deleted

    By accident, Caddiac was deleted from the site, I'm working on getting back all of the content that was deleted. That includes ALL of his threads, posts, photos, etc. This is not easy at all and I can just roll back 24 hours to get it all back, which is what I might end of doing, just have to see.

    It looks like I have to roll back to yesterday's database backup (deleting everything posted since the backup was made) in order to get back Caddiac's information.

    Let me play with it to see if I can merge the two together...

    I wish my student loan account would accidentally be deleted:party::rofl:.
    But hopefully it gets worked out for Caddiac

    This is one of the worst data loses ever on this system. It all stems from the new anti-spam software we have installed, it's designed to quickly erase all traces of a spam user account - so the user goes away, all posts, all threads, all photos, etc.

    The problem is that it got applied to Caddiac somehow so his entire history is gone.

    Now, I might have to roll back two days because of an incomplete backup yesterday morning. >:-( :grrrrrr:

    I'm looking to see if there is a way to just restore and then add in everything new after that, but I'm not sure if I can do that.

    Ok, I'm not going to penalize everyone on the site for this problem, I am working on seeing if I can get just Caddiac's posts back into the database, not that easy yet.

    That doesn't say much about Caddiac, huh? Maybe we can give him an honorary ROTM award for being a load of SPAM. :) Just kidding and I hope you resolve it. Good luck.

    Well, trying to get his account back just caused the site to go down for the last 90 minutes. :-(

    I'll work on this, SORRY everyone, just one of those things and I'll have to get it sorted out over the next day or two.

    Thanks for trying....actually, it's kind of quiet around here without him posting, but I am starting to miss his great sense of intelligent humor. Hmmm....I guess we have to take the good with the bad. lol.

    Yeah I miss him too. I was right in the middle of "Caddies Comedy School Classes" when he got deleted, so I don't know whether to cry or ask for a refund :)
