Hi,

when I go to my Account page all information is gone with the exception of

Email address ***.***@***.at
Name Martin P.
URL none
Country Austria
Postal code
Change email address | password | other account info
Log out

Everything else is gone: Stats, Link to results, Link to posts, etc.

Furthermore ALL topics in the HELP DESK are completely empty, although the overview page shows the number of posts that are supposed to be in there.

What's going on?

The Help Desk is empty because it only holds topics on visual for 7 days. After that they do stay but aren't visible anymore. You can still search on them and link to them, though. If you know what to look for.

The Your Account page works for me. Maybe that Wormholio was busy working on it earlier when you tried it, trying to add the privacy rules. Read around the forums.

More importantly, home.php (which shows a user's own account information) works for me, Rusty, and someone without special powers.

I was indeed working on something which may have temporarily broken this, but it was for testing my control of throwing people in the brig, not the privacy of the forums, and it was last night, not more recently.

If it's still broken then please post in Number Crunching.

And as Ageless already mentioned, the Help Desk now only shows recent postings. And alas, because it is/was public, nobody can post to it.

Wormholio asks you to post about it in Number Crunching as the current test on this forum is that all public forums are locked. Only moderators, developers and administrators can post here/create threads here. The Crew forums are open for everyone, if you are logged in.

So during this test you won't be able to post an answer here.

Since the last post is nearly two weeks ago, I'm going to add on here about the Help Desk.

Stated above, topics are only visible for seven days. However, in the Windows section there's a flag that there was a post in the last day, but even that's not visible.

Sorry MJ, I was testing something and have since deleted that thread. Luckily deleting it found another problem. ;)

So it's not your imagination, it's just a deleted thread. And since that changes the database, the index here states the last change to that database.
