Nomad broke the guild
« on: December 29, 2015, 02:04:09 AM »
I want to apologize again for any disruptions I caused. I didn't intend to axe the wiki or start spamming the forums with error messages. Anyhow...

Nerdtalk to follow (skip to the end for the short and sweet):

To summarize what happened I started getting notices that our database needed updating and was quickly reaching the point where it could cause compatibility trouble in the very near future. Since I am starting school again in a week I figured it was now or never. The database upgrade went off without a hitch. Unfortunately as part of the upgrade I also had to update the version of PHP we were using and our wiki software REALLY didn't like that. I managed to get our system reverted to a previous backup that was taken a couple days ago. I am still going to have to fix the issue pronto but now I know to manually upgrade the wiki first. I am hoping this won't be too big of an issue. Assuming it all goes to plan we shouldn't have anymore hiccups. I have gone back through and posted in each thread with my comment containing everything that was posted between the attempted update and the reversion. Nobody should have lost anything they posted although in the case of one person their thread was created at this time so it will have to be remade (I have pm'd the person in question with the contents of their thread so they won't have to retype it).

TL;DR - Nomad had to fix crap before the site broke, trying to fix it broke the wiki, fix was reverted but we lost some stuff so I manually reposted the stuff back into its threads (or messaged the thread creator with their post contents). Will try again shortly, hopefully with less setting the forums on fire.

Thanks for all you do, Nomadic. I'm sorry the upgrade was/is such a tortuous beast.

You people are too forgiving. How am I ever supposed to pull off my coup and take over the CBG at this rate? :grin:

No, seriously. Nice job Nomadic. Let me know if you need me to do anything with the wiki. :)
