It's not ALL gone ... how you can help

Unread postby Alex.the.Pretty.Good » Fri Jul 06, 2012 5:14 pm

To all ... despite the loss of about a week of pposts, it's not all gone.
I have been able to recover about 4 days worth of recent posts from several threads from my cache ... and so can you.
If several of us work together, many worthwile posts could be restored.

What to do?
Firefox users ... There's still a chance to recover data if you do as follows:
(1) Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... continued/ and install the cache Viewer add-on
(2) Restart Firefox (default)
(3) Go to tools > Web developer > Cache Viewer
(4) In Cache Viewer, search for "haven.net/view". This will list all your recent "viewtopic" pages ... in other words, the threads.
(5) Now you can either:
(5A) search for a topic number you know you need (eg. this topic has number 9280), select it and right-click - save as. You can call it any name and end it with ".html" When you double-click, it will now open in your browser.
(5B) select all files, click on save-as. Cache viewer will ask you in which folder they need to be saved. All files will now be called "viewtopic##.php" files where ## is an incremental number.
(6) You can either rename the *.php files to *.html or open the *.php files from firefox (Ctrl-o to open, select the file you need)
(7) when the file opens, you don't have the formatting, but you do get the texts

If anybody knows how to easily recover threads from IE, don't hesitate to post the procedure here as well.

I have the following cached threads on my hard-drive. Let me know whether you want to see it restored, and I will post the raw data in the relevant threads.

You want me to PM you the text so you can post it yourself? (that way, the thread is "created by Catgirl") or you want me to re-post it in the MLP forum?

By any chance, I believe the day of the error, I sent myself a PM (was just trying to save some text material online) that I later could never find. Think you could look into THAT?

That's more difficult ...
Some caches will save your "composing" page ... but now that we're a month after the crash, I do fear that your cache wil have long ago recycled that page if it had been there.

I for one certainly don't have it, my cache only contains the threads I actually opened in those days.

Sorry.
