Well, I clicked on my jungling 101 guide as I was going to touch it up a bit, and saw the "You are viewing a draft of your guide" message.

Now I don't remember making any changes to the guide, though when I look, the fact is that C2V is turned off (obviously it doesn't work after 20 votes anyway but I did leave it on until that period), and most importantly, chapters 16-22 are missing.

Now obviously this will be a simple copy and paste (from not being logged in) to get it all back, that's not really the problem, I really wonder where it went to begin with, and I'm sure you'd benefit from this knowledge either way!

I know this happened before once, half of a Lee Sin guide of a friend of mine just vanished, but he never really tried to get it back -.-'

I'm assuming no one that hates you has your password, right? :P

Thanks to jhoijhoi for the signature!

About a week or 2 ago something erased my masteries, pros-cons and runes chapters on my guide. I don't know what happened but I just redid them.

My password is always extremely secure, nor do I think that is a reason, they wouldn't have deleted a few chapters but not it all, saved but not published, etc. Now I look at it half of Runes is missing too, they would've deleted it all.

Strange. I will take a look. If you are missing a lot of text I can recover it from a backup?

Would be good. Would be a bit of a pain to have to do the formatting again.

I had a similar problem with my guide where I went to edit it during a time where the server was having issues and it erased the entire thing. I hope this gets resolved!

If you need me to dig a copy out of a backup I need to know the exact day you lost it. Depending on how far back it was I will only have a 24 hour backup so will have to get the copy as it was in the backup the day before you lost it.

Will take a while to do though, so if it's faster for you to just re-post it then you might wanna consider it. I'm super backed up as it is :(

Ah, I didn't know it took so much effort :)

I'll re-post it, but thanks for offering to restore it :)
