Errors after merge - Philly - 2012-07-13

I just bought a forum, uzigaming.net merged it with forumkorner.com and plan on redirecting it to fk as well. Anyways so I am just about done with everything but notice on some threads I get errors like the one you can see at the top of the page here. http://www.forumkorner.com/thread-37669.html Clearly its an error because of the awards plugin. I guess the old owner took the backup with all plugins still installed rather than disabled so it shows all members from uzigaming having awards that FK doesn't have and never will have. So it is causing this error. What would be the best way to fix this? Should I import my database from before the merge than have the old owner take a backup of the db without plugins installed and re merge the forum, or should I disable the awards plugin and hand out 1k+ awards to all my old members?

Another quick question which I know the answer to already is, I accidentally deleted a entire forum consisting of around 20 sections before moving all threads to other sections. Is there any possible way to see exactly which threads where deleted so I can re merge just the threads that I accidentally deleted. I can guarantee this isn't possible but its worth a shot asking if there is some method I don't know about.

Alright I think I came to a conclusion as far the the second paragraph. I did a few tests and notices that after moving threads out of sections from the merge into there permanent home onto the fk section that it still showed posts and threads in the empty sections. Which means it just glitched somehow. So Perhaps nothing actually got deleted, perhaps I just need to run a recount on threads, and posts. Let me know what you think.

I assume you didn't test the merge before going and doing it on your live board?

Anyway, one possible way to fix it could be to simply delete any awards given to members of the other forum that your forum doesn't have via phpmyadmin. It would be much easier than re-importing and stuff. I don't know how exactly it would work as I've never used MyAwards but it should be possible.

That is 100% correct. I was so stressed out today and overwhelmed I did no prior tests. Which was a mistake on my part but stuff happens and no one is perfect especially not me. Anyways if you can find a possible method in dropping all imported awards that would be more than amazing! But I have tried a few things and have had absolutely no luck. :/

Problem is that I don't have a MyBBCentral subscription so I can't get access to the plugin to see exactly how it works. I assume that it uses a table for awards that have been given to people so it should be as simple as deleting all of them for the UIDs that were imported.

I could always pm Labrocca and ask him and I am sure he will be fine with you reviewing the plugin. If not I could simply upgrade you. However thing is there is 3k users imported. So I think giving 1k awards out again would be simpler?

It might be more simple, yes. I'm not even sure that's the cause of the error though. If you contact labrocca, I'm sure he'd be willing to help anyway Smile
