Due to the crash, all account data has been lost. In order to restore the data that I have (donation logs, rewards, usernames for the staff list ...) it is required for the user to be registered. The same applies for all staff members, who need to have a valid registered account first, before I can actually put them in the staff group.
Due to a critical hardware failure at the ISP, the website is currently being restructured. The website runs on a VPS server, with two hard drives. One was used to store data, and the second one was used as mirror backup in case the first one failed. For causes unknown to me, the ISP confirmed that both those hard drives failed simultaneously. This is extremely rare. Their attempts to recover the data proved to be unsuccessful. They sent a letter in which they apologize for the inconvenience this might cause. Due to the fact that I had full confidence in this setup, I did not actively take off-ISP backups of the forums and website. All this data is now irrecoverably lost.
