Everyone is banned!

Submitted by caedes 06/11/11 7:11 PM GMT

Just kidding... We had a corruption of the user's database that caused the "am I banned" field to be set for everyone. This didn't immediately affect everyone at once because of caching in the system. This is why it took me a while to notice myself. I was able to fix it by deleting and reloading the user's database from a recent backup. No data was lost in the process unless you created an account in the last day (very few accounts). Sorry for freaking everyone out!

I was 'frightened' this morning (CET +1) when I was told that I was banned from because my yearly donation was rejected by Paypal because of possible account fraud. I'm glad Geri, that you were able to resolve to a certain extent the problems in a very quick way. Well done. Thanks, both for your quick reaction and for preventing me from having a 'sleepless' night, lol.
Regards, Cornelius.

Yes, it certainly gave many a fright. We do have a system of communication beyond the website, so many were aware there was a problem and not just for them alone. Glad it is now fixed.

C-Index discussions/debates seem so trivial now in retrospect, don't they?

Irrelevant, my dear Watson. Why blame your inner imp? Are you feeling guilty about something?

Thanks for the repair job :)
Freak-out over !
Good to be back.

Because of the glitch I was unable to enter my post in the contest- it was uploaded in time but was not accepted into New Images before the banned message appeared and now it is too late - oh well, things happen :(

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . .

Sorry Les, but I don't think think this problem gives the stupidity of the zero voters in the voting booth a free ride.

It really caught me by surprise too but I knew it had to be some type of error or glitch and that 'the all-seeing eye' would be on it before long...many thanks, Geri, for your prompt attention...what would we do without you!

In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art. ~Rumi~

Thank you for coming back online. I called 3 friends to check on their computer to see if it was just me or what-not. Just got to complement this excellent site, and all the great members on here for the wonderful works they do! Keep it up...Awesome Community!

I feel like such an idiot... I hope this place doesn't go where I sent it and I don't want my account deleted.

I appologize for my rashness and I promise to make a donation to help keep the place going. Glade to see the issue was fixed.

Wow, thank God I wasn't banned. I spent two days trying to put my head together. What had I done? Who am I? Where am I? Great to be back.
