Uh-oh...

that doesn't look good, and unfortunately it looks like something I can't sort from here.

I knew this would happen when Rich went on holiday :(

I think it happened to a few articles when Rich did something with some of the banners...

My Red Steel article went down the toilet n'all...

Have you got the text of that review still? If you have, I could always just bump and jump it back to the top of the dbase easily enough.

Don't fancy doing that for Peej's Red Steel review as well do you ilmaestro? I'd love to see what he had to say about it now I'm playing through it!

Noticed the random mapster post at the bottom about headsets :) I don' know why that happens when commenting from the PS3.

As in, posting comments from the PS3 ends up with them being posted to the wrong article?

Yep, happened to me a few times. I know there's one in the rogue galaxy review.

Think I stuck it in the bugs thread a while back.

Oooh I'll have to look into how you did that Ilmaestro as there's quite a few article that have disappeared. Basically, any article that had a banner disappears once I disable the banner. This should have been noticed a long long time ago but has only just become apparent. I will (as I always seem to be saying lately) fix it for the new version of the site.

Heh, well unfortunately I'm no magician - just find the url of the article you want and slam it into the search engine at archive.org. Obviously then you can just c&p the text back into the article. AATG has been fairly regularly logged there over the last year or so, but there are a couple of gaps.

The only time-consuming aspect of that SOTC article was that all the apostrophes had been replaced by a symbol of a question mark inside a 45 degree rotated square. Is your keyboard set to a non-English language, Dr.Haggard?

Nope, that's odd. Must be something to do with the special characters being escaped when it's picked up by the archive.org bots and put in their database, then perhaps mis-interpreted when the text is parsed by something else? Not sure, never seen anything like you describe.

IIRC I gave Hairy the article with links included and all the line breaks as brs, but I didn't bother to use codes for the special characters, so it could be a difference in character set between AATG and archive.org.

Strange if it was only that article that had the problem though.

Yeah, must just be something weird with the way it was archived that time, the Red Steel article was fine in that regard.

My first day back at work is not proving particularly productive - for work that is.

But, I have recovered almost every single 'lost' AATG article from archive.org!

Is it just me, or does that website time out a lot?

Wicked, that's all of them restored! Hopefully there shouldn't be any more lost articles anymore!
