    I'm messing with the back-end database while drunk, so shit may break here and there, or you may get some weird-ass errors that look all scary.

    It's a short term pain, long term gain kind of thing.

    Right now the site will be pretty slow as about 18,000 accounts are being wiped out.

    If you're bored, you can look at the "Total Members" number at the bottom of the main page as it slowly shrinks.


    In other news, if you have an account but have never posted anything, then you're shit out of luck and your account is going to be wiped out.

    As far as I'm concerned, if you've never posted, you've never contributed, and your account is just another spam account that's wasting space.

    If you want to keep your account, post something and contribute. Fast.

    And BOOM... there are now only 1700 users on the board.

    If you run across a post that appears to be spam, or something else that's not working right, or needs housecleaning, report it (using the report button/link on the actual post) or PM me.

    I had to put the site into maintenance mode for a bit in order to fuck around with some low-level database shit (official, technical terminology), but now the site should run better, and the post indexing is now operational again so the search function should work.

    FYI, Reps are temporarily MIA... working on it.

    Let me know if anything else is missing or not working as expected.

    Searches should now be working properly everywhere... just fixed searches pertaining to your own posts.

    And, to go along with the nice and shiny newly cleaned out forum, time for a rep reset.

    Need I point you to the boobie thread?

    Hey Nett the advice board can be responded to now, but unless I didn't see it you can't make a new advice topic, just respond to old ones.

    But I worked so hard for that single dot of approval from a random stranger on the internet. How am I supposed to go on living?

    Woot! Nettdata is back!!

    I saw your Porsche post on reddit (Carolina Motorsports) and was going to PM you until I couldn't remember if I had a login and lost interest.

    Sidenote: My rep is now higher than last received last year...

    I'm going to assume all is well now so will close this thread.

    If you run across anything, PM me the details.

    Or not.
