 Copyright Removal Sabotage = Forums Gone
#
Hi there.

I ran a site from 2010-2013 using jcink, and its life was ended as one of the admins purposely removed the copyright from one of the skins we were using, and it made all of the forums disappear. I can see that the forums exist on the ACP, but I can't even edit the permissions on any of the forums and I'm at a total loss as for what to do, upon revisiting these forums in an attempt to read old posts.

The site: darksinister.b1.jcink.com

Please help me out; the problem should be visible as soon as you check out the board. I have no idea what to do. I have worried for years. Thank you in advance.

What happens when you try to edit the permissions?

The problem there is that there are no forums at all actually. The administrator deleted all of your forums. It wasn't the skin.

You're looking at a bunch of empty categories there which don't have permission options. Any forums that were there got deleted. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif

Because of the age/event that this happened (2010) an old deletion bug though relating to forum removal at that time... you're actually in a little bit of weird luck. Your board stats are showing about 11743 posts -- this is because there was a bug that caused deletions to fail sometimes when forums were removed. I'm seeing 11743 posts and 235 topics. I can push all of whatever is left into a single forum for viewing if you wish.
