Time Warp Thread!

9 years ago

Originally my Mass Effect 2 thread, but now used for better purposes especially since Bioware sucks a lot now.

Might as well use this thread to test something else.

As you can tell, we're currently experiencing a time-space disturbance with the forums, and no I don't know what happened. And attempting to create new threads results in them not showing up as well.

Until someone figures it out, feel free to easily browse Ye Olde CYS threads. You'll find that the mood around here was just a tiny bit different than it is now.

Here are some of the newer threads that were around. I’m sure others can be dug up since they’re not gone, they’re just currently lost to another dimension. (Will add stuff as needed, though anyone can go ahead and add links if they want)

At least this gives us a chance to read and review a bunch of the new storygames (especially mine). I like how the bugs thread for killed by a bug though. IRONY.

Well that explains it. For a second I thought alexp suddenly became active again. Also Bugs & Problems, and Creative Corner show up completely empty for me. Did they not have any posts old enough that they'd be saved over this time warp glitch?

Edit: It seems that searching for a storygame with nothing entered into the forms just brings up a list of the most recent posts. The actual ones from 2018 that is. Including a completely dead thread from Spartacus.

Oh, huh, that is interesting. So an empty forum search is functionally the same as my convenient list of new posts in the Moderation tab. Here's Coins' sad lonely thread, but, I guess it just got lost in in the void since it was made three years in the future. http://chooseyourstory.com/forums/the-lounge/message/24819

Those appear empty for me too, but if I click on a post in the bugs thread from my profile it still pops up correctly. So at least the posts aren't gone forever, just invisible.

The first midnight est reset has passed and forums are still wonky. At least we can deduce it's persistent.

Okay, this should be showing up like it should on the front.

If we need more anchor threads for ease of access to newer discussion, more can certainly be created.

I'll email Alex ASAP. Also the Discord server got hacked last night and a bunch of channels deleted so I've been dealing with that lol. It's been a fun morning.

The randomness of this is what's confusing me. One board has a thread from eleven months ago, others have two years, three years, four years... well whatever. It's been said the forum is too much of a distraction so use this time to get to writing, bitches.

Knowing this site it could very well be a glitch that fixes itself at midnight even without Alex's intervention.

Do we have any idea whether it's just a glitch or the work of a dastardly troll? cheeky

Clearly this is the work of the head COG admin, going to extreme measures to hide that savage calling out he got last night.

I think the stuff on the creative corner has been completely deleted. All the work and effort of so many people and the 50 word story thread, are they all lost forever ?!

Nah, like what sabley said I think that they've all just been hidden. We can still (probably) access them directly by URL but can't see them.

Edit: Got it off of my profile.

I can think of three possibilities off the top of my head. In order of least to most likely: hacker, unaccounted data overflow, intentional toying with database

Alex says he hasn't put through any changes.

A hacker seems really unlikely with the site tied in with Alex's sites still, and if someone did figure out a way to fuck with the forum they'd just delete everything or spam shit. Rolling it all back a couple years seems too creative.

Time Warp Thread!

rolling back a couple years is a great hint as to what's happening. if data overflow happened then we may know based on post IDs, thread IDs, and specific dates. it may be similar to the 2005 incident. @BradinDvorak thoughts? unfortunately I will be inactive most of today as I'll be driving through a blizzard back home with leora so I think my speculation ends here.

Time Warp Thread!

That's weird... I got a tag notification for every post in this thread even though you only tagged me the once.

Anyway, I'm not sure about an overflow involving IDs. We're well past post #255 but haven't hit 32,767 yet. I can only guess it's a similar issue to whatever happened with "About Us" a few months ago. The data there has to be updated every so often but somehow there are rare spans of time where it just fails and gets stuck or broken until it can right itself... but in this case, it failed partway through? I dunno.
