Update: now less than 100,000 posts to go. But remember, then comes the database rebuild/optimize.

For some perspective, this is probably the worst problem PPMB has had in 3 years. Not good, obviously, but not bad either. Hopefully the steps taken by the amazing Scissors will ensure that this (specific problem, at least) doesn't happen again.


Scissors is the hero we need, and want. Thank goodness we have him.


You're just afraid someone's going to start singing that Nickelback song. Which, in fairness, is a reasonable thing to fear.

Well, it's not a bad choice for a hero's theme music. Remember - every good hero should have some. :)

Nope. It will happen again a year from now and this time, last two months.

So, will the fanworks

It looks that way now.

Please note: there are some leftover topics dating from before 1 January 2014 that are being removed as I type this: topics with only one post in them. If you click on one, don't count on the board being able to find it.

We've gone from 1.9GB to 1.3GB, so we're good as far as storage goes.

OK, some joker is trying to look at these:

Code:
select from_unixtime(1181327425);
+---------------------------+
| from_unixtime(1181327425) |
+---------------------------+
| 2007-06-08 13:30:25       |
+---------------------------+


Now, and no joking here: ANYBODY WHO POSTS A FOLLOW UP TO THESE LINGERING POSTS MAY FIND THEMSELVES IN A WORLD OF HURT. We just had an outage of over a week, and you're basically trying to screw with a LOT OF HARD WORK. DO NOT MESS WITH THAT.

I've been getting this too. Not a clue what's causing it.

ETA: Something I'm just going to get out of the way...if everything but what all I posted in Creative Writing comes back, I honestly would have no problem with that.

Scissors has to step out until 9 pm EST, and will address it then.

Posts are there, but the topics table needs to be restored and rebuilt. So the board is NOT BACK YET.

For those unaware, the PPMB is down again because of maintenance issues, but it appears it might be back sometime tomorrow.

Pretty sure they would understand that by reading the preceding posts... or just by going to the MB page. Sarcasm is not appreciated. We (especially Scissors) have put a lot of work into getting the board back and running.

Sarcasm? What sarcasm?

I did not detect sarcasm

In this post at all.

Maybe I'm just being sensitive. However, Scissors's post right before that one did say the board wasn't back yet.

I'm sure everyone can survive for one more day.

Unless it's just too much for them to handle and they spontaneously combust.

There was indeed no sarcasm in my post, just wanted to point out that the board might return tomorrow.

OK, so the topics table has been restored and rebuilt, so now posts show up where none did before, but there are still some lingering stray posts and threads (topics). I honestly don't know how they survived. It's most likely (l)user error on my part, but we are still quite slimmed down in size from previously.

I want to bang on a number of things before declaring it open for bizniz, which will likely be Monday, 15 December, in the PM (EST, which is UTC + 5 . . . I think). Thank you for being patient.

Since PPMB isn't fixed yet, this week's spoiler schedule will be posted at Large and Small Screens.

I'm patient...mainly because I'm in the midst of a late fall cleanup in my house, and it's an intense process.


Fun times.
