Merry Provider-Fuckup - Uh Christmas?

As some of you noticed, we had a brief downtime thanks to our previous provider being the very incarnations of uselessness.
Those measly morons actually managed to not only break server and hardware our stuff was hosted on but to also break the backup of it at the same time.
Since we are quite familiar with the everlasting disappointment most people embody, we obviously had backups ourselves.
Now to the details below:

Since the website is not really big, the backup was sadly no daily thing.
Therefore:
1) Content created / added between the 07.11.2020 and 16.12.2020 was lost.
This is mostly shoutbox posts, profile edits and forum posts. The shoutbox posts are negligible but as for the rest:
The following users have made profile updates in the timespan mentioned above and have their avatar/userpic/userbanner reset:
Avatars:
@Kykio @Perso @davidino @wotan @Bishop @reboRn. @joi @Boots
Userpictures:
@davidino @Bishop @reboRn. @Cyb3rst0rm @joi
Userbanners:
@davidino @Artemis @Cyb3rst0rm @joi
Miscellaneous profile edits:

Please update your profile again to fill that gap.

The missing forum content is mostly the "Videos" and the "Game Footage" thread. I will make a post in the latter and contact people who had contributed recently personally so we can fill that gap together again.

2) Backend / Code changes since January 2020 are reverted.
You will see a few changes and optimizations that I made this year are no longer present. I will have to recode a good portion of that.
A few parts of the website might not work as expected yet either. Please inform me or be patient, since it will take some time for me to fiddle with all of this again.

On the bright side, not much has been lost and this incident provides us with a good opportunity to improve some things and shows me that I have to make even more frequent backups, since
most people are completely useless
the website has received enough content updates in 1 month for this to create some holes in the page!

All of that aside, a fairly early Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you.
