You mean like the awesome Dread Guard Droid HK customization from PTS which you removed from the game for no apparent reason and never put back in? I know you have much bigger issues at the moment, but still. Somebody had to say it.

It may take a few days but I will pass on any updates as I have them.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Eric, I like you a lot man, but I can't resist at least poking a bit of fun: BRO DO YOU EVEN BACKUP? I mean, really. No way to like... run a data migration? To archive / back up current threads, revert a few hours, then re-apply new posts? This... this stuff isn't that hard?!?! I'm a finger-painting filmmaker / graphic designer who just through proximity and osmosis has heard enough about how "that there database server thingy" works to know that it's usually doable (if remotely decent / standard practices are followed). I think I have more backups of pictures of my cats than that...

That thread was invaluable - as a tank, I've learned SO MUCH and use it as a reference, weekly. It'd be a shame to see such a valuable contribution to our community lost forever (and I'm sure it wasn't the only gem deleted).

Well this is disappointing to say the least. Bioware should be ashamed beyond all measure. In this day and age of keep it simple for stupids web hosting and forum design, not having a backup to restore within 24 hours is beyond pathetic.

Everyone working on www.swtor.com needs to be fired for incompetence and laziness.

It has been over a week. Have the devs consulted with keyboardninja, the author of the lost thread, so see if it can be resurrected?

This is valuable information. I direct the tanks I see in rotten gear sets to this thread because there is nothing else that really explains it. Now a new generation of tanks is lost in the wilderness.

But, hey, there were less than 100 people on fleet on either side today, so I guess maybe people are just giving up . . .

Just for the record for any of you that are sub'd to this thread, I've posted all of KBN's (again all credit to him) PVE tank sheets at this thread: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=792434

The only difference is that my group was not able to copy the post 3.0 text, but all the spreadsheets with the correct 3.0 numbers are there.

Seriously? You guys amaze me. I try, I really try to be a good fan of Bioware but this is a bush league mistake. I'd fire the whole team if I was your manager for such a data loss with no backup. Fire. The. Whole. Team.
FOR THE VITAE!
