Assalamu Alaykum,

Erm, erm... erm

I don't know what to say..

Reason for error:
When a post was being updated, it didn't specify the ID of the post so every single post was updated with the new post.

Negative points:
Every post since september 06 has been overwritten

Positive points:
The post titles, members, audios, fiqhuiz, everything else is still here..
Only the post data will have to be re-written/updates/somehow recovered.

I would love to cry and punch the wall in but that wont bring back the information, the only thing I can do is make up for it and recover as much as possible. I do apologize and if anyone wants a free paintball shot at me, let me know, i'll start adding you to the queue.

Again, I really do apologize for this and i'll do my best to recover what's missing.

Wassalam

I have enabled the members to delete their own posts so the less significant ex-posts can be removed rather than retyped.


Again, I am soooo sorry for this.. this has got to be my biggest blunder ever. I hope the members will help make up for it and forgive me for this error.


Wassalam

Salaam

Traumatising events have to be dealt with creatively. Knowing that everything is already written in one's taqdeer, we just need to be imaginative in trying to perceive the wisdom behind Allah's qadr - whilst understanding that we will never truly know.

For example, in this instance, say for example there was ONE sentence in ONE post in ONE topic which may have been a cause of misguidance, and had been overlooked by the majority of users...

What if Allah had caused this technical error on the forum as a means to prevent this misguiding sentence from remaining at large?

Alhamdulillah 'ala kulli Haal !

I'm sure that all users of the forum would agree that whatever the cost, it would be favourable to the price of such unintentional misguidance.

Allah knows best, but we should think creatively beyond the scope of our normal restricted mindset which sees material gains and losses only.

May Allah forgive us for our errors and protect us all. Aameen

Fee amaanillah

Wassalaam

p.s. let us all remember to recite Bismillah before posting, and ask Allah to guide us, insha Allah.

lol


Reading my previous post is quite amusing - my tone was so serious !


Traumatising ? OK ... well, yes, disturbing, but I think I went a little OTT.


Either way, my point is simply - Alhamdulillah 'ala kulli Haal.


Even forest fires are a source of better things - new growth and diverse species.


Fee amaanillah


Wassalaam

Can we repIace the paintbaIIs with studed metaI darts with razor sharp edges?? and repIace the guns with propers ak47's or uzi's?? i'm just trying to make the punishment fit the crime. (a good earIy eid present for moIIy yasin)


makes it very hard to start the oId topices again. The youngsters in commitee one wouId have been good one for aII.


but mistakes are mistakes however big or smaII. Its Iearning from them that counts and to bear them with sabar.

Might have to hold off on those darts... there is a slight possibility the data can be recovered. Will update you here inshaAllah


Till then, I request members not to delete their own posts for a successful recovery if there is one.

Salam,


All posts till the 15th Oct 2006 02:29 am have been recovered. Only 3 days of posts have the errors. Could have been worse?


Alhamdulillah, no majour harm done. I still apologize for the loss of posts in the last 3 days.


Jazakumullah for all the words of encouragement earlier. I was too shocked at the mistake to be shocked or to panic, I hardly knew what to say.


PS. I take back the free paintball shots at me offer. But can be replaced with hammer (one of those blow up balloon hammers)
