Hey all, I have a bit of unfortunate news.7 posts omitted. Click reply to view.
In the past couple of hours, we received a heavy influx of spam on /dr/, /gf/, and /nos/.
The spam was in the order of ~300 posts, seemingly originating from Hispachan users. I have been friendly with Hispachan since the inception of Dreamchan, so why this was done is a little baffling but these things just go with operating an imageboard.
The casualty in all this is while cleaning up the extensive, interwoven spam, all of the posts on /dr/ were deleted accidentally, along with accompanying images and thumbnails. I was able to restore ~600 posts without images, so those are back up at this time (about half of the original amount) After doing my best to fix this, I immediately tweaked how backups are performed and saved. Going forward we should not lose more than 2 days posts at a time (which given the speed of the site should be fine, I will adjust this as needed) My sincerest apologies for those who had their posts removed, there were certainly some beautiful dreams and sentiments there.
I do know that you all will continue to have lovely dreams and aspirations, so I imagine we have a promising future of /dr/ content to look forward to. <3
Realistically though, I shouldn't have to manually renew it, I have done so to be on the safer side in the past, but I have worked out a job this time to just do it automatically. Going forward it should just be seamless. Thanks!
