Acount deleted

Post by Nasir » Tue Sep 21, 2010 4:00 am

Hello. My old acount was deleted. Can I have oit back? I haven't play since the last Halloween but I wouldlike to start again. I don't want to start from the begining. They are stuff to much boring like finding an other 4 leaf clover or ironpowder to practice/use magic. I have already helped on the wiki in the magic and quest section and I have helped a lot of new player. I still want to help, not being helped.

I am sorry to say it, but i think it is not possible to get a deleted account back. You was long away and meanwhile the 2nd big account deleting was started at 2.August 2010. And all unused accounts since 2.February 2010 was removed... Image

But here are now new quests & new monsters, some changes are made. Probably you enjoy a restart and you get surely help too. I hope you come back... you are welcome Image

Its safer to login one time all 6 months. Image

Whell, now I know that it's safer to log every 6 month... But the point is that some stuff are really boring... Restarting from the begining is rely bad. All the time for leveling, all the night trying to find a 4 leaf clover, all the hunting to get the snake skin, etc. They are probably a way to restore some stuff no?

What they should do is archive the accounts somewhere instead of deleting them.

Please pay for that and you'll understand why we need to delete these accounts.

The problem is that the DBs are flat files.

what's the difference between a flat file and a text file?

It is a plain text file and that is the problem. We'd have to shutdown the server to reinstate deleted accounts and characters. And they'd be from the last backup before the were deleted, so progress may be lost. Other DB methods would allow us to insert them while the server is running. We're already planning for Manaserv to not actually remove deleted accounts/characters, but just flag them as deleted, so nothing would really be lost until the DB is purged.
