They’ve tried. Just keeps happening within hours or days.

To expand on this, we'd have to wipe not just the many GB of files on that site full of that shit (which is mix in among regular system files and folders) we would have to search every single file and page for the site to make sure that the code that was written on them was deleted. Almost every file, php or html or xml or whatever, had edits done by the bots, adding lines of code into them to perpetuate itself.

Parts of the site still exist?

Yea, they're all locked up, no permissions for anyone so they don't do anything nor can be accessed by those without access to the actual files.

Why are parts of the site being kept if the code is so heavily corrupted?

Ideally, things from the old site could be archived at some later time by the few who can still access them, or even better, some work could actually be done to purge the malware and fix it.

 

I doubt either will ever happen. I think that's why the files were kept, though; because dreamers can dream, right? The best round in recent history was ran straight into the ground by this hacker bullshit and an inability and/or unwillingness to counter it on the host's part, along with others'. 

Now we're kind of in the same place again - not because of malware, but because of a hosting issue and an unwillingness to fix that basic issue.

Is this site using the same host as the last one?

I think this site is on a different host than the old site.

It is a different one. Everything was moved over to the host and server I use.

Do you still have the forums for my games somewhere on that server or are they gone for good?

You mean to say that nobody did an archive the moment the old site was set aside? That is surely the most spectacular mistake I've seen.

No, we have an archive, and the original files. Both are full of crap and malicious edits, but they exist.

Always keep backups of anything you don't want to risk losing, and that goes for things posted online.

If so, then there's no value in keeping the old address online in a compromised state, assuming we still hold the domain. Nuke it from orbit an either cleanse the archive or extract whatever value remains.

Mucking around with the ship spreadsheet is easy. I haven't had an offline copy of an economic spreadsheet to look at since the pre-round one from round 25. And that one is a mess to read.

As long as GDP, Debts, upkeep, IR and RR are in a spreadsheet already - I can throw a calculation together in seconds. But I have no interest in building said stats into the spreadsheet - boring data entry is not for me.

Is this restart attempt being done at an undisclosed location or something? I have no idea who is doing what.
