I know a lot of people might be upset about losing hearts, I know that I personally lost 300 :P within this time period... I wonder if it is due to the amount of repeat questions (and most likely homework questions) being posted in this time period? Anyone have any answers??? sad

I don't have any answers, but day before yesterday I had 701 hearts, and today I have 674 hearts. 

They're a lot harder to earn nowadays; it's discouraging that they just somehow vanish into the night.

The reason for the loss of points and missing posts is on or about February 29 or March 1, 2024 the web2.0calc databases (and maybe the operating systems) were restored to January 16, 2024. The German forum was restored to December 8, 2023.  All posts (and related point tallies) subsequent to the restore point and prior to the restore time no longer exist on the forum.

 

I can only speculate on the reasons for restoring to a point six weeks prior: A corrupted database index is the most likely cause. These can be difficult and time consuming to repair if the errors are nonlinear or compounded over a large span of time.

The vast majority of questions posted on the forum are posted by scripted bots, under the control of a few psychopathic and obsessed trolls. Some of the answers are also posted by scripted bots; these answers may be generated by AI, and at least 20% are incorrect, with wrong or missing procedures and/or intentional math errors. There are a few legitimate questions posted by humans. There are also bot-posted questions that imitate   

 

This forum is a real microcosm of the science fiction narratives where the world is invaded and takeover by human-like cybernetic virtual beings under the control of biological humans. It’s bloody creepy!!!
