Wow! Talk about knowing your stuff. Nice job!So I used Google Cache to identify your UserID on Pinpics and it came back as UID=12574.
If I looked up a random member, and then modified the URL to that UID it comes up for someone named riprap. The collection and trades are turned off, but the wants do have a lot of Villains. There is a real name and a photo associated with this account. Now that I know you can see the total of pins in a collection it says 4738.
Then I searched Members for riprap and TWO accounts came back with that username, which shouldn't be allowed. The one I found before and then one without a profile photo, has the same real name, no wants and everything else is turned off (but I can see that they own 2063 pins just not what they are). This one has a UID of 33029.
Since you can't login, I don't think you will be able to see the member pages. Did you have a profile picture on your account, does the collection size for the 1st riprap sound right? They have had data corruption in the past, where a table field gets deleted, and then everything else lines up wrong. I'm just wondering if the one riprap account is your stuff, but now the username and password associated are this other riprap account. If the data is still there, someone might eventually be able to re-associate it back to your account, vs if the whole thing was gone.
Although, if they ever get the site functional again, I think they will have to reset to an old backup, so anyone who has been trying to make changes should not expect those changes to be retained, but it would bring back your account.
But really, everyone, if you have not already managed to save a copy of your items, PLEASE, do it ASAP, because with as long as this has been going on, I think everyone should proceed as if the site were dead and then if somehow it comes back in a functional way we can breathe a sigh of relief, but it should not be the expectation at this point. We already know the database was failing a couple years ago, and this time its even worse.
Fully agree on presuming its dead. Especially since they have not said a single word about what's going on this whole time. I'll continue using it for trade comparisons as long as I can get in there, but definitely presuming it will become less and less useful. It's really going to become much harder to trade without it.
