Let's make some zombie maps to celebrate it.

Re: Comments were accidentally overwritten

Nice to know that some of the comments are back. Hopefully the rest will be restored eventually.

I am restoring now, the database is read-only for a while.

Re: Comments were accidentally overwritten

Done! Please report any issues.

Restored comments got a footer that mentions their origin, e. g. the comment form
25 December 2020 on https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/travail.html . Kinda ugly but it works...

We managed to restore all 310 comments that were posted between the last backup and the incident. Massive thanks to czg, JoelB, jmp and ORL for their tremendous help in rescueing these from search engine caches and a memory dump. You rock!

Some few comments will have lost some of their markup (sorry Mike ;) ) and others will be missing text after their initial first sentence(s). Sorry about that! If you are an author of a comment and can remember what is missing, please tell me about it.

My comment on barzai.zip is missing italics on the "much" but was otherwise restored perfectly. Nice work, everyone!

Re: Comments were accidentally overwritten

Congratulations on the recovery of the 'lost' comments: thanks to all those involved.

I visit every now and then to wallow in nostalgia and always get a warm feeling of "smuginity" when I see that someone has played one of my old maps. It's a real bonus if they enjoyed it as well. I'll never forget Quake, or its community.
