You'll have a table there where all the posts are in, and another table where his account credentials and personal settings are in (this part may be split up in two tables). If you can extract just this part of the dump then you don't need to roll back the complete forum for half a week. And I'd appreciate if you would not roll back the complete forum, not unless you make available to us a dump of the current state so we do can repost our recent posts.

I personally doubt the board was hacked, since its been active for a long time, and we have a stable version of the board, not an RC. Titi mentioned something about the masterserver could allow access, but I'm not so sure about that since the board is password protected and I believe only jose and perhaps the rest of the glest team know the password.
Could be something before SMF...and somehow...but probably not? We hope?

Re: EDITS,
maybe try using tomreyn's solution? I would prefer if you didn't...(probably also bad for tomreyn as he was a new member recently...)  and etc. of course, we would all prefer not to...but...anyways I guess we should find another way? ...
has there even been a problem like this? on SMF at least?  :|
hmm...I hope all for the better, for kukac, the Glest Community, and everyone else...

Thanks.  :thumbup:

Well, here's what I can tell you off the bat:

-When a person is deleted, the unique modifier for their posts is deleted, changing it to guest. There is no way to restore it back to their modifier. I'm not sure if his modifier was reset to guest, and have no (known) way of checking, but I would assume, since the account was deleted, that it was. The only recovery for that is to restore the posts (would be nice if we can just restore the posts and his account, and let those tables overwrite, but none of the others. Depending on the SMF's table layout, this may not be possible. Not sure... :(
-I definately would not want to roll back the forum either.
-I would love to see what I can do with the tables, but I haven't got access to the MySQL stuff on the server. My adminship is just for the board, and not for glest.org itself, so I can't do anything there. It's up to the glest team if they can do anything about that.  :'(
-I will try and experiment with my backup by importing it into a dummy copy of the board offline, deleting an account, and seeing if I can recover it. If successful, then the glest team can apply it to the Glest board.
-Post count cannot be permanently faked, since it depends on the posts, and can be recalculated, its not a static number.
-For now, I've made Kukac's new account a moderator.

Still open to ideas. I checked the SMF forums and back was the only really mentioned way. For the most part, there wasn't many helpful replies there. :bomb:

Probably Kukac's reaction...  :(  ::)

Hmm...

Maybe we should simply ask kukac if its ok for him to live with a new account.
He has the same rights and so on an he also can edit his old posts because he is a moderator.
The new account only has much less posts :) .

Epic number of posts, for something that trivial :)

Quote
he had around 700 posts i think and close to 800...

Does it have to do anything altogether? Gabbe, an account is not simply the matter of numbers of posts. It doesn't matter, if a mod has 40 or 9000 posts.

Quote
Yes, these are the facts, but what happened? Maybe the glest board is hacked? Or is it just his account?

I think, hacking my account is the last case solution :) If you hack a whole board, why would you only delete only one moderator's (and probably ace frog's) account? :D

Quote
If some one did it, it was ether Martino or Omega... I doubt they would do that on purpose...

I just imagined as one of them accidently (AcCiDeNtLy!!!) clicks on my delete account, and yes on the "Are you sure" panel :D

Quote
older than 2 weeks (28 days)

2 weeks are not 14 days?

FYI the account was just "recovered", since the old account had only the links to my posts, so what's the problem? It would be worse, if it wasn't deleted, but someone deleted every threads in my name...

The new account only has much less posts  .

I was proud to joined in 2005 :'(

As Omega stated above, post count is a calculated number, not a static one.

Kukac has a point. Though I must admit I feel sorry for him. I would be outraged if my account were to be deleted. And it's true, that post count means nothing, however, other people might look for people by their post count, not their awesomeness value (where Kukac is only just behind me :O).

I must admit,
May be we can reasign the @kukac@ post to kukac user... :S
Please read my earlier reply:
-When a person is deleted, the unique modifier for their posts is deleted, changing it to guest. There is no way to restore it back to their modifier. I'm not sure if his modifier was reset to guest, and have no (known) way of checking, but I would assume, since the account was deleted, that it was. The only recovery for that is to restore the posts (would be nice if we can just restore the posts and his account, and let those tables overwrite, but none of the others. Depending on the SMF's table layout, this may not be possible. Not sure... :(

Another posibility that seems unlikely, but I have to ask (it happened to me once). Could anyone else have logged onto your computer and deleted your account? Most people leave their accounts logged in, and its pretty common to have friends/family/ENEMIES etc with easy access to your computer... I know an account on another site was once used by a friend when I left it plugged in. He ended up posting some spam, thinking it was funny... :o

Ouch.
