DataBase Corruption
I don't know why everyone but the database was crashed earlier today. I have tried many times to restore everything but it just did not work. What this basically means is that I had to wipe the database completely. Everything is gone and everyone will have to re-register their accounts. HOWEVER, this is not without fail. Instead of putting the stories in the database they were saved as files. This means that I have ALL the stories that were on the server as of yesterday. But they do not have titles, the are labeled by number. I will allow this WinZip (.zip) for download. It is about 11MB in size, 151MB when unpacked and contains well over 1,000 stories. If you want your story back on this site and you do not have a copy of it on your hard drive here is what you need to do:

1) Download the zip file
2) Unpack the zip file to a specified folder, I would recommend creating a new one called "stories" to do this.
3) Open your search panel and set it to look in the "stories" folder.
4) Type in the title of your story, it should search through this folder and pull up a couple results.

I cannot being to apologize for all the trouble this issue has caused. In this event I have decided that the eFiction of the site WILL NOT BE CLOSING. This section will stay up, I do ask that you do visit the message board once in a while and chat on there as well.

Thank you and sorry once again,
Ron Prower

In case it isn't apparent, the WinZip *.zip file is at the bottom of the BLUE WELCOME BOX just under the menu on top.

The "Add Story" function isn't working, is that a problem with me or everyones?

How do you submit a story? It's like... not up. But thanks for setting it back up! What made you change your mind?

Everything should be working now, give it a try.

What about Reveiws? It said Error when I tried to respond to one...

Reviews seem to be working just fine, try now. If not tell me what story isn't working.

It STILL says Error.... >

It works for me, Sharra. O.O Also, I'm not sure if it's just my crappy dial up, but when I try to open the WinZip file, it says that it's "invalid or corrupted". I'm not sure if it's just my computer(I have Windows XP, in case that means anything) or my internet, or what..

Never mind. I got the WinZip thing sorted out....I was saving it in the wrong place. ^^;

Sharra, unless you say what you're trying to do, there is nothing that I can do.

I know what she means. When you try to reply to reveiws, it says error and tells you to try again.

There are no settings that I can change since it seems to be working for me. What you can try is cleaning your cookies and cache as it may be something leftover from the old installation.
- RonPrower on May 21, 2007 8:32 am
how do you do that, Ron?
- Sharra on May 21, 2007 7:59 pm
In Internet Explorer, it's under tools then Internet Options, select one of the tabs and it'll say something like "clear cache" and "clear cookies" somewhere along those lines.

It still says Error when I try to respond to reveiws. Is it just me, or is it STILL not working for others?
- Sharra on May 26, 2007 7:13 pm
I CANNOT do anything, sorry.
- RonPrower on May 31, 2007 6:15 pm
I'm just wondering, are the challenges coming back?
- TUL Angel on June 04, 2007 4:53 pm
I got adding a story to work.
