    What about the primers these people wrote? For example, the Legacy Pox forum, which was active, is now "forbidden" and cannot be accessed... This is over 200 pages of discussion gone! Can we get those forums back please, even if the posts from some people (even the one who made it and made the first post) are deleted?

    If there's a specific thread, request it Here. Hopefully we can have someone takeover the missing primer, etc.

    Everyone here should have been PM'd.
    If I somehow missed you, please repost or PM me.

    Where are you getting this?
    As far as I'm aware, nothing is "can't see the page"-broken.

    Copy & paste the URL where you're seeing this here, so I can investigate, please sir/ma'am.

  • posted a message on "Read-Only" Downtime 1/29/2019
    The updates have finished, and we are back online

    Tomorrow, 1/29/2019, we will be performing server changes and upgrades.
    During this time, the site will be "read only", meaning the site will be accessable but you won't be able to make new posts, PMs, etc.

    The downtime should start about 24 hours from this post (~11AM Central).
    We expect the maintenance to last a few hours, but will be done as quickly as possible.

    It might be a fantasy game in a fantasy world, but I still want a bit of realism. We have a storyline, and a sense of immersion with these characters and worlds.

    Sure, Liliana has a "seductress" quality to her, and doesn't wear armor. Showing a little skin and going out of her way to be attractive fits her motif. If it fits and is realistic, I'm fine with it.

    That said, no right minded warrior is going to charge into battle wearing a metal bikini. That's absurd, ridiculous, and absolutely destroys the immersion.

    In order to steal the existing primer with a new OP, the user taking it has to have posted before December 2017.
    That will let me steal one of his posts to make it the new OP.
    Otherwise, we'll have to make a new thread.

    If you get it done, please shoot me a PM and I'll make it happen.

    I can see it, even logged out.
    But just in case, I'll PM you the contents so we can delete it and recreate it to make sure it's there.
    The spam filter shouldn't bother you at this point.

    There aren't, unfortunately.
    We can see that there's a deleted post, but this is hidden from normal users.
    (Turning it on would let users also see deleted posts, so we can't really do that.)

    If you stumble across an odd thread with someone talking to himself, they're not as crazy as they seem..

    It's back again.

    The spam filter can get overaggressive sometimes, especially with long posts.
    You have enough posts now that it shouldn't bother you any more, though.

    Sorry >_<

    You'll have to hack in an override that sets the font-style to "Normal" instead of the italics.
    Just open it and close it right inside the [Quote] tag.
    There's a couple open-ended style tags.

    [Space] is the easiest that won't add any extra markup.
    [space=5px; font-style:normal;]

    Code:
    [quote from="ISBPathfinder »" url="/forums/community-forums/community-discussion/576824-the-mtg-salvation-tag-explanation-thread?comment=62"][space=5px; font-style:normal;]Sooooooooo essentially we need the full quote tag - italics being applied broadly to the contents. Hummmmmmmm let me run down Feyd. [/space][/quote]

    This will also let the quoted poster set the italics on and off inside his post.

    I do not have an exact time frame, but definitely go for sooner rather than later.

    Also, MafiaScribe can, and should, be fully restored at some point.
    (He shouldn't technically have counted, but was flagged for EU)

    Unfortunately, I have to resurrect each and every post by hand.
    So.... please be patient with me.

    As the person trying to untangle this mess, I assure you I understand your frustration.
    In the end, the owners had to comply with EU law.

    Regardless, this is not a Pauper/Peasant thread, and is not the place for such a discussion.
    Locked.

    After talking some more with the legal team, since you reclaimed your account quickly and before the move, I can restore some of your threads and it should be ok. There's no automated process for this, I have to do every post by hand, so we're only looking at restoring the major threads or important posts. We'll revisit the issue later for other things.

    A multiplayer decklist discussion got the status: "Forbidden
    You do not have access to perform that action."

    This is a URL i used. There were only 2 pages in it.

    EDIT: So i guess the creators account got removed? It was a Rasputin101

    Rasputin101 has come back, and I've been able to restore the thread.

    The primer for amulet Titan modern established. Izzetmage was the guy.

    One of the titan amulet threads was restored.
    "Azourius Titan/Emeria Control" and "Colorless Eldrazi/tron" are both missing atm, the users have not returned, etc.
    Waiting to see if these users return shortly.

    Quote from Jonny_Tempel »
    The spirits primer for modern has been deleted too. Ketoglutarate was the owner.

    ketoglutarato came back, and his Spirits primer has been restored.

    Quote from DaveJacinto »
    The Primer for Grixis Death's Shadow in the Modern subforum was deleted because my account was deleted as well..

    The Link is still in my sig tho.
    Your Grixis Death Shadow Primer has been resurrected!

    Quote from Ayiluss »
    The primer for Grixis Shadow was deleted. I'm not sure who wrote the primer though.

    As above, DaveJacinto is back, and so too is his primer.
    Because Dave rocks.


    Quote from Kalas17 »
    The Emeria Titan Primer for Modern has also bit the dust. No idea who was the owner.

    This amulet titan primer is back up.
    "Azourius Titan/Emeria Control" and "Colorless Eldrazi/tron" are both missing atm, the users have not returned, etc.
    I'm still awaiting some word and hope these users comes back before handing off primers to others.

    There was a great post about which order to read the books https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/magic-fundamentals/magic-storyline/336912-info-the-order-of-the-books, any chance we can bring it back?

    Unfortunately, this was specific to the user, and his own creation.
    We'll have to hope he comes back.

    The "Evaluate Everything" Project as part of Pauper Cube discussions seems to have disappeared, as well.

    This is the latest URL I have in my history: https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/the-cube-forum/pauper-peasant-discussion/193961-the-evaluate-everything-project?page=2#c38.

    Thanks.
    I've resurrected the thread itself, but the deleted user content will remain deleted unless that user comes back.

    Quote from pizzap »
    I (pizzap) was OP of Modern Hollow One (https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/modern/established-modern/aggro-tempo/788208-modern-hollow-one-discussion) and Shamanism (https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/modern/budget-modern/556726-shamanism). I already requested my account to be restored, so I assume the threads will be back once my account is back.
    I am not very active anymore in Modern, so if someone wants to adopt these threads, it is also fine by me.

    Both Primers are now back up. Smile

    The Azorius Titan Emeria Control thread in Modern - Established - Control subforum. Fincown is the owner.
    Quote from marit »
    The primer for the cheerios thread in established combo in modern was deleted too. Here is the link for the old thread:

    https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/modern/established-modern/combo/757602-modern-cheeri0s-puresteel-equipment-storm

    Thanks!
    Hoping that user comes back for now.


    Quote from Boba2989 »
    Do I have to just hope the user comes back?

    Yes Frown
    Sorry.

    Quote from marit »
    Does this mean the whole thread (including the primer) will never be able to be viewed again?

    If the user doesn't come back, we'll look into handing it off to someone else.
    If they start fresh, the old thread will remain dead.
    If it's possible to transfer the thread (this is a complicated manner), we'll restore the thread sans any deleted posts.

    Quote from Ecophagy »
    Feyd: would it be possible to restore any threads that might have been deleted from the Mafia subforum? I don't know if any have actually been removed, but we'd like to ensure we retain as much history as possible. If it's not easy for you to see if/which threads have been removed let me know and I'll try and work it out. Thanks!

    If the user has come back, yes.
    Have them message me requesting such.

    If the user has not come back, they will remain gone.
    There's literally nothing we can do. It's the law.

    It looks like none of the mafia threads from the past two years have disappeared.
    "ZeDorkSlipeur's Normal" is gone until the owner comes back. That's the most recent one I see.


    Sweat
    If I missed anyone, please let me know.
    Juggling a bit here, but I think I'm up to date.
    Just waiting & hoping on a couple of the primer writers to hopefully return.

    I've PM'd each of you individually.

    There was some back and forth, but for you returning users, I will be able to restore some threads and posts. There's no automated process for this, I have to do every post by hand, so we're only looking at restoring the major threads or important posts. We'll revisit the issue later for other things. If there are any specific threads that you want me to restore, please reply to the PM or post here.

    We've gotten official word from the legal team.

    For Primers and Decklists: We will not be able to restore the OP, even if the user wants to come back.
    This will have to be transferred to a new user with a new post.


    Again, this is governed by law, and not based upon any decision of ours or even our owners.
