Why do you keep restating the same thing? We get it. We all want it repaired.
You're just beating a dead horse at this point.

[@ Buttercup] Yes indeed, It would be good/nice if Absolute Anime could be fully repaired and fully restored. I hope Absolute Anime can be fully repaired and fully restored. Back to the way it was before the big error happened.

[IDEA] You can double check the Absolute Anime backups that you have and have found for Absolute Anime and see if they're working or not. You can try to fix and restore the backups for Absolute Anime, and hopefully, fix and restore the entire Absolute anime website and its database back to the way it was before the big error happened.

[IDEA] You can double check all of the Absolute Anime servers and all of the Absolute Anime database tables and all of the Absolute Anime backup discs and all of the Absolute Anime external backups and all of the Absolute Anime backups, (Including the ones mentioned on the first page of this topic by the two of you.). And you can try, (Or at least try.), doing disk-checks and error-checks on those things to try, and hopefully, fix and restore the entire Absolute Anime website and its database back to the way it was before the big error happened.

The forum is not going to be restored to how it was before. It's just not. Even if we did find a recent backup, we would not use it to restore the forums. I know that's what you want, but it's not going to happen.

There is still a possibility of creating an archived forum from an old backup, but that would be read-only. And it won't happen soon as we're both pretty busy right now working on paid projects.

Do you intend to rebuild these forums eventually? Adding back old sections and what not?
Sorry to nag. I don't want to come across like that. It's just exceptionally hard to keep interest of people when it's this small.

I would be interested in seeing the old format again, with the different sections, but no rush. =)
Everything is an adventure. Good adventure, bad adventure, it's all adventures. Don't ever turn down anything that might sound even remotely adventurous.

No, I don't plan on adding additional sections. They were added back when the forum was really popular and we had a whole lot of people making a whole lot of posts. But that's not the case anymore, so we really don't need a whole lot of sections to keep things organized.

Absolute Anime had a big error on either late 11-30-2013 or on early December-1-2013, and then it disappeared until it reappeared on 12-5-2013.
