Recently something caused four active player forum accounts to be permanently deleted, along with their forum personas and all posts they had ever posted.  While as an Admin of the forum, I could for example remove a ban on a spammer, I couldn't restore those four deleted accounts myself.  So I contacted the forum hosting company to roll back the forum to the day before the first deletion. 

Based on my Star Trek graduate degree in temporal mechanics, this reset should restore the accounts at the expense of the forum posts of Jan 7 - Jan 11 which was also the period of all the scuttle butt and for example 9 pages of forum trying to decide on a game variant.  So if it worked, it seemed a good trade off. 

Forum Accounts and posts restored:
Rellgar     607
John Doe  430
Acererek   735
Ohman      396

Many of these posts form an important part of the knowledge library on the forum: they are back.

The effort and constant communication with the hosting company through the entire week finally resulted in success last night.  The four accounts and the related 2000 posts have been restored.  Also, the block on their IP addresses should now be removed.

However, Mike will need to ensure the Order entry for those accounts has been restored.  That may take a bit of time.

I realize some players who were not effected may not have seen some of the notices of what was going on. 

As I've said I won't let anyone feel they have been harmed by this series of events.  If you feel recompense for you is required, send a message either to support@alamaze.co or to my private account at topalchemist@yahoo.com.

Mike has the server side (game processing), I have been addressing the forum problems which are now resolved.  In other words, I don't know.

Can't get to order entry site. I believe Mike posted that he is attempting to resolve this issue.
