What happened to the GBS, NFS & SPC files?
 
What happened to the GBS, NFS & SPC files? is there a problem with the site? the "Music" section has nothing! does anybody know what is going on? please fix it! I am trying to get Dr. Mario GBS and Yoshi NFS files! (Just wondering, if anybody still has these files, i really want them!)

It's not just those formats. The PlayStation files are gone, too, and searching for "music" yields lots of PHP errors. I'm guessing the server isn't feeling well this week

Actually, just about everything is gone, it seems. It's server related.

shit is falling apart! How does stuff like that automatically fuck up on different web sites? You can't say updates or the service provider because if any service provider fucks customer's data like that to where the customer is responsible and has to make backups and reupdates and what not -is bullshit- and I -would not- pay for a shit service like that. This is all assuming that this is hosted with some company and not a private computer. I also don't want this to sound like people shouldn't backup stuff and rely on someone else, but something like this where a database is fucking up for days without becoming fixed in a few minutes or hours just ain't right.

As a workaround for anyone that wants something now and can't wait till it's fixed
an old link:
for the spc files
http://zsnes.zophar.net/spc/

and remove the "download.php?file=/" part

these may be links older versions of the spc files

actually if anyone has a full collection of all the music in a zip file, torrent, or something let me know please. I will keep them safe for the future :)

Actually, what happened was that one of ZD's staff members deleted major parts of the website. Its in the process of being restored.


EDIT: just wanted to clarify, we don't know if the staff member himself attempted to delete the site, or if it was just someone using his account.

EDIT #2: OK, for the most part things should be restored. We are currently missing 81 emulator files, 130 translations, 10 frontends, I can't figure out which category the "Salamander/Life Force" game movie belongs to, 1 document is orphaned and 2 music categories have messed up names. So around 1% of all site files are affected atm. All of this should be back to normal when I get to extract the backup of the site, which will be on Monday night (can't do it now because extracting it takes the whole server down).

...fucking inverse.

I've banned him. You know, here I was thinking he had fucking grown up and changed. Man, was I fucking wrong. So not trusting him again.

Unbelievable. Thanks to Edman and Reaper Man for being on the case on this one.

Can you also double-check my access prrivileges? Seems that once again I cannot access the Admin CP for submissions, comments, etc.

No big rush, as I am visiting family for the weekend. Thanks!

EDIT: In looking at the music files, we definitely need to extract whatever backups you have for the entire music section in general (as well as the music playback/manipulation utilities sub-section). All of the descriptions and titles are back to a state they were in many, many months ago.

That's insane. Why do that for no reason? Or any reason, other then to be a troll. You leave and not do anything else if you're pissed.

This is the 2nd time I think.

...Really? You're asking that about him?

I had nothing to do with this. In fact, with the exception of April Fools Day and the day after, I haven't even been on the site. I resigned my staff position several weeks ago, so I'm not even sure why my account still had staff privileges.
