Morning everyone,

You may of noticed that the site was inaccessible for a couple of hours last night, followed by a number of hours where we disabled logins.

We had an unexpected reboot of the database server, we're still trying to find out why this happened but could be as simple as loss of power. Upon rebooting some of the database tables were corrupted, no doubt because of the hard reboot.

Anyway, after recovering the data and rebuilding the database we've re-enabled logins so you can post comments/topics/replies etc. again.

Please let me know if you notice any strange problems over the next few days whilst we monitor this.

Thanks!

Having problems with my "Watched Topics" section of the forums, it's only showing 9 topics subscribed to, when I actually have tons more, can this be fixed at all?

Technically I'm not posting on NL, but I'll make an exception for this.
I noticed this
Untitled
and this
Untitled

On the first, the dates are all messed up, in ordering at least, and on the second the problem is rather apparent.

Btw, the first pic is the first page of the 3DS forum.

I'm also showing only 17 topics watched when it should be well over 100. Please fix this if you can so I don't have to look for all of them again.

Afternoon guys,

Thanks for reporting that, it was all related, the forum topics table was about 1/2 incomplete, I've restored this data now so everything should be back to normal, could you confirm or let me know if you spot anything else?

Thanks!

Well done on getting the site back up. Sorry to ask but is there any chance of a compromise of user data? Do we need to change our passwords?

@Jaz007: On which forum page are you seeing that thread as visible? I'm not seeing it on the main 3DS forum page at all. if it's still showing up someplace, It could be due to me having archived it instead of locking it (archiving auto-locks a thread to new replies anyway so i figured it'd be overkill), i figured that way the OP could still see their thread and why it was locked, and then it would also not be cluttering up that section of the forums.

perhaps we need some sort of symbol to denote a thread as having been archived (or at least just the normal 'lock' symbol)? :3

I noticed it, too.

When you look at all forums at once, it shows up on page 2 right now.

And it does say it's archived, rather than locked. That's likely the issue.

@MetallicDonkey: Ah, I see it now! haha, i always use the Unread page to check the forums. i think we definitely do need another symbol to denote archived topics, i'll go ahead and forward that on to Ant right now :3

I can post comments perfectly fine in the forums but it won't allow me to post comments under news and reviews.
