Because the recovery is complete. HA!
I yelled that triumphant "ha!" as though I had something to do with it. I didn't, really. I tried everything I could think of, got frustrated, cried, whined, and drafted a friend who is much more computer savvy than I (read: actually understands this stuff). The end result?
If you love the Refuge, you now love Matt. He spent eight hours -- seriously, eight hours -- fixing the database and rewriting the script for this place, so we have all of our stories and reviews back. Eight hours!
There are a few things that are wonky. As a side effect of all of this, all chaptered fics have lost chapter titles. If this really bothers you, you can log in to your account and change it manually. It also means that, since we had to revert to an old version of the database, anyone who has registered an account since the upgrade (the last three weeks or so) must re-register. Sorry about that.
The forums are still down. We'll let you know as soon as that's been resolved.
However, you can now play with all the new features! We're open for submissions again, and you can now issue challenges, create series...es... and generally resume having a grand old, gay-newsboy-filled time.
And leave comments here about how much you love Matt, damn it.
ETA: Matt just fixed the chapter name problem, too!
