Looks like getskinned.org is down again!

Postby Weezle » Wed Oct 05, 2005 3:35 am

Getskinned.org seems to have a slight problem tonight....

quoted from their site at 10:26pm cdt:

".: 10.04.05:. Update: We have lost our member database. It is unrecoverable. We are in talks of what to do at this point, but seeing as our database is gone, all submissions are not linked to any member. It would be nearly impossible to find out which submissions belong to what member. Hopefully in the next few days we can come up with a solution."

Sounds serious this time. Does anyone else keep a backup of all the AB skins?

I believe Sara *may* do. However, as with Lou, I am a little perplexed as to why they didn't backup their database?

Backup's for squares, dude!

You might want to be a lapdog for the man, but all of us aren't going to get stuck in that trap! You just want us to be just like you!

Well, we wanna dance, and have fun, and hang out with the Joes at the malt shop! You're not going to stop us 'cuz we think for ourselves!

Be quiet now, Bill Haley's on the radio :!:

On a side note...

They're all still there, aren't they, they just don't have the authors. That's not a big deal because I did them all, anyway. Well, I did the good ones, not the bad ones.

We are functional...just lost the db. I thought the host would have a copy, and they didn't. I need all those who have added a skin, to please re-register and post which works are theirs in this thread:

http://www.getskinned.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=2

Sorry for the inconvenience.

And what do you mean, again? We haven't been down in a LONG TIME!

Looks like we're ok. Chris has a backup of the database. We should be back up to normal running standards by this weekend.

Why would you need to register James again? I think things should be fine, but if not, James can register himself. Oh, you meant, "So do we still have to reregister, James?" :wink:

Hehe, no. I think we're going to be able to get all the old user names back in the database.

If you registered after July, you'll need to re-register. If you can't login, then use the password reset feature:

Yes, but they are back online now. We just needed to make sure the ID's of the members got straigtened out before we opened the forum back up.

As you can see these problems are no longer an issue. But, it's been slow to see new skins.
