To Whom It May Concern:

User asifagaria has been deleted, putting the 200 Yahoo Boots thread in danger. Is it possible to recover this account or at least save the thread?

Thanks in advance.

Well, to be fair the originator of the thread was a spammer.

Sorry, that was my fault. I deleted it this morning before I was fully awake. The thread popped up at the top, I saw a spammer with one post and deleted the spammer. I immediately figured out what I had done, but it was too late. I don't think it is really recoverable--sory.

Suddenly my only GeekQuestion makes no sense.

That was my Super-A#1-Happy-Fun-Time-Favorite thread of all time. Without it, it feels like BGG has lost much of what made it a community - its history - despite the oft-mentioned community-definition technicalities.

And now, extra hyphens ---------------------------------------

We will remember this legendary thread through our oral histories, passed down to our descendants in perpetuity, as did our tribal elders and our forefathers before us. This epic thread, a monument to Man's folly.

Is there really no way to recover? Blott's GotW thread was recovered from Pat's account deletion, can't this one be too?

It's still in Google's cache. Just search 'Yahoo boots boardgamegeek'. You can at least save it locally.

Dammit Karp! I am SICK and TIRED of being KEPT DOWN by the MAN. We know you did that on purpose because Yahoo Messenger doesn't put out for you.

Yesterday, when someone described the don't-say-who-you've-plonked rule as "speech nazism of the highest order," it was the dumbest statement I'd ever seen on BGG--not because it was stupidly hyperbolic, but because I knew a case of real speech nazism would soon come up, and we'd have no words left to describe the magnitude of the crime against humanity which had been deliberately perpetrated by the admins.

I'm only thumbing this so you'll tell me what you've been drinking. There's a long weekend with the in-laws in my near future...

This is lame.


A lot of us put some work into that thread. We had content there.


And all we get is an "Oops! Sorry!"


Uh...that's pretty sad.

Sure, but you certainly don't want the whole site restored from a backup. Going back and retrieving one deleted item is a lot of work for Aldie.
