Also, hate to add more work into this, but there's also the thread I made celebrating 10 years of the event, I really hope we could get that one back too. Here https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=243705

Oh, I forgot about that.

I didn't create the edit system. So I can't speak to it 100%. 

When you make a post - it isn't added to the edit table.  We will call the original post A)

When you edit that post (We will call this B)  A gets added to table. B is your main post, A is in the edit.

So if you make a blank post (That's A). Then edit it (With B). A gets added to the "edit table". B does not.  You'd have to have edited B for it to be added to the table.

Sorry to hear it is that complicated to restore stuff. And a lot of thanks to you and Ryuu to put in the work. I really like the greatest game event, so having the complete history of results back feels important. But I wasn't aware it is that much work involved. I kinda thought the posts are still there, you need the right ID to get to them. Didn't know that the last edit was completely lost. Thanks for the work you put in!

Not a problem. You put in a lot of work on that thread. So I can at least see if it can be restored.



You are bound to love Earthbound.

OK, archive.org takes forever to load, but I have 2021 https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=245741">here, and archive.org shows the 'View post' buttons, so I can extract the post-IDs.

https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=245741">2021: 9352811, 9352812, 9352814, 9352815, 9352816, 9352818, 9352819, 9352821, 9352822 - the last post with decade overview and the yearly games, but it probably got the id ending on 23, 24 or 25.

https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=244193">2020: 9267198, 9267199, 9267200, 9267201, 9267203, 9267204, 9267205 - here are sadly three posts not displayed by archive.org, the MS platforms, the other platforms and again decades and years. Again the following IDs should contain them, so 206-210 at the end.

https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=241748">2019: 9100432, 9100433, 9100435, 9100436, 9100437, 9100438, 9100439, 9100441, 9100442, 9100443

https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=239013">2018: 8956005, 8956006, 8956007, 8956010, 8956011, 8956012, 8956013, 8956016, 8956017, 8956018

All these posts were made by mZuzek. A lot of work he put in.

Nice.

I'll start with 2018 and see if Bandorr can restore them when he has some free time.

Worse case scenario and he can't...Least a lot of data is available to copy/paste over into a new thread.

Think I found what Post ID it is through looking at the body on HTML.

2021 should be 2823.

2020 stops at Microsoft Platforms which should be 7206 and I then went through the numbers, Other Platforms is 7207 and Decades is 7208.

So I think we've got all the Post IDs at least...

Phew, Lol.



Lol, I was meant to quote Mnementh's post.

By any chance do you remember the format of that thread and/or how many posts had at the start?

Wayback has the Introduction, Top 100, Commentary, People Who Voted, People Who Voted Part 2, People Who Voted Part 3.

Then it shits the bed in Part 3 at "Runner-up EIGHTS!!"

Have a look at it through Wayback and see what you think.

Just don't want to miss anything and know where to stop.

Still a bug. I'm on mac os.  This is the way the chart always labels for me.

That's the problem.

I also had this problem with Firefox. I then changed the browser to Firefox Legacy (because I'm using an older Mac OS) and since then the problem is gone. I'm pretty sure the problem is caused if you're using an outdated browser.

I looked through it and all of them shit the bed at some point, but I believe there should be only one more post after that.

Yeah, I managed to get down to "Ever Present Ten" and then it stops there.

I think the images are broken because they were uploaded via VGChartz's image upload which is a bit awkward at times but I really don't know why Wayback just stops loading the rest of the page at a certain point.

If there's no edit version store then Idk what to do, worst case scenario, do you think you'd be able to recreate the last bit of data after we restore the rest of the thread?

Don't do that yet of course, I'm just saying, a chance we might not be able to recover whatever is meant to be beyond "Ever Present Ten"

@mZuzek 2020 is Back!

Even better, I didn't actually have to do anything with this one because it was fully restored with edit history!
