Unfortunately we cannot restore the forums or the comments back to the way they were as that data is gone.

1. What about private messages? Truly the only thing I care about.
2. Are we going to build the forums from the ground up then?

[@ webmaster] In the first post in this topic, you said that you're going to look for a backup for Absolute Anime that might take some time to find. So there's still some hope that Absolute Anime can and will be returned to normal and the way it was. So if you keep looking for a backup for Absolute Anime, you could/might just find it. I hope that you find a backup for Absolute Anime so that Absolute Anime can be returned to normal and the way it was.

At this point we are assuming that everything which was in the database is gone. There is only a small chance that we may be able to recover some of it, but even if we do we will not be restoring the forums using that data. Instead, we would create an archived forum that wouldn't allow posting.

[@ webmaster] I hope that you find something, such as a backup, that can restore the entire Absolute Anime database.

[IDEA] double check the backups that you have and see if they're working. You can try to fix and restore the backups and Absolute Anime.

Absolute Anime has some social networking atributes which the big error has decreased. Less people and members and screen-names are on Absolute Anime now.

If you can fully restore Absolute Anime back to normal/back to the way Absolute Anime is supposed to be, then more people can come to Absolute Anime, and old Absolute Anime friends can be found on the friends list and the chance of making new Absolute Anime friends can increase.

I hope that Absolute Anime can be fully repaired.
