Ok, I am currently very distraught.

I was working on my guide for Fiora, and I hit publish. However, my internet cut out at that exact moment, and I lost NEARLY 3/4 OF MY GUIDE. Sections copied themselves onto others, and now I have lost all of my information for nearly half my guide. Which equals about 15 or more hours put into the guide. I can't get it back, as it's stuck in my draft version when I went to look at it.

If you can help me/get my guide back from a previous state (probably like 10 states or so ago, basicly, before I added in MissMaw's Banner, if that helps at all) I would be extremely grateful.

If you tell me exactly when your guide became bugged I can dig up the last backup before that time. We run backups daily at midnight, so that would be the most recent backup I would have (midnight before your issue occurred). I just need to know the exact time so I can get you the nearest backup. It takes a fair bit of time for me to retrieve and restore the backup so I also can't dig through several, best if I can get it right the first time.

I've been able to recreate my guide through a friend PM'ing me the text only, and I recreated all the code and text into my guide. It took a while, but I've fixed it.

Sorry about that.

No need to apologize, I'm sorry it happened! Glad to hear you're back in action though!!

Make sure now that you've restored it, that you keep a local copy of all the guide text (with bbcode) just in case :) We try our best to make the system foolproof but it is very complex and the web is a fickle beast, so things do happen from time to time.

I've done just that :D

I can now just copy and paste all my text and code from word into my guide, which will save a lot of time. Thanks for helping!
