FIND A BACKUP AND RESTORE ABSOLUTE ANIME THE FORUMS+COMMENTS

I hope there is a working backup to fully restore Absolute Anime and that Absolute Anime can be fully restored. I'd like it if you'd restore Absolute Anime to normal. The 'anime profiles' section' and the 'character profiles' section, the comments are missing, and so is the comment box. You can find a backup and backup the forums and then delete this version of the forums and go back to the back the forums from the backup and have them be the full forums again; and wait until you find a backup for the comments in the 'anime profiles' section and the 'character profiles' section and don't re-enable comments to those sections until you find a backup and use the backup to restore the comments. I hope you (can) fix Absolute Anime back to normal.

I am very sorry for all that you have gone through, Theo. And you haven't failed us, though the loss of my private messages will haunt me for awhile. (That's just because I tend to keep crap like that. Ask my various old cell phones, even the completely dead ones.) And this way we can start fresh. AA prime had a good run. And if anything of it can be restored, I'm all for that, too. But don't get too down about this site. We'll remain as strong as we ever were. [: I hope you can recover all of your clients' data and such, and your emails. I know how great a loss those can be. We'll be alright around here. [: Ken, if you find a recent-ish backup and archive it, give me a heads up, won't you? Thanks. [:

I hope everything turns out okay. It is a nice fresh start though and getting rid of those dead threads saves us from having to go through them all. Like I said before though, I hope everything is ok and I hope you guys find everything you need. We still think you guys are the best!!

I'm late into looking into this. Oldheads had posted about it on FB but haven't had the time to check it out.
I never thought this would happen and all the posts would be safe and we could just log back in whenever and take a trip down memory lane whenever...
I wish you luck, we're all rooting for your success Theo, it'll happen soon I know it!!

This kind of broke my heart seeing it.. So many lost memories.
Oh well. Time to rebuild.

As I said before, find a backup for Absolute Anime and restore Absolute Anime; the forums, the comments, etc. I can see that its more than just me that wants Absolute Anime to be fixed and restored from the big error.
