I volunteered to help with removing spam from the forum. Benjamin made me "moderator".
Then.... one day there where something like five spam topics, I selected the ones to remove, and hit delete.

The logs say I deleted the VESC5 topic too. :-(
I don't know how it happened, but I'll double check next time.

(There is an option in the forum software to "not permanently" delete a topic. In that case it could be resurrected in case of such a mistake. Well... that option is kind of useless, because for the moderator the topic then remains visible and clutters the topic. So that's why I didn't use that option...)

Benjamin noticed, and said he was going to look for a database backup to try to resurrect the topic. I"m guessing he's found the backup, but is now faced with "raw database contents, how to resurrect that one topic without messing up the whole forum?"....

Sad story. I would also like to see the VESC 5.0 thread again. There was a lot of good information collected. But mishaps happen.
It is just crazy how often spam threads are created on this forum. Just saw around seven spam threads on todays morning.
So thank you for helping Benjamin with deleting that trash. :)

I'm surprised by the amount of spam as well, and rew has done a good job deleting it. A small mistake happens easily. I usually delete spam by banning the users by email and then deleting their account while deleting all their posts, then I don't have to check the threads individually. The spam threads from this morning came from the same user.

What also surprises me is that, as far as I know, the login question is not too easy on this forum, so either they have good algorithms or there are actually people employed to register on different forums and spread advertisement spam.

Regarding the VESC5 thread, my latest backup only had a few posts in it because I haven't made too many backups since it is quite a bother to log in to one.com, look for phpmyadmin, log in there and click a lot of things to export a file. At least I made another backup after that. As rew explained, I was also a bit afraid to mess up while extracting that post from the database and insert it into the current database.

The VESC-project site is hosted in a virtual machine on my server in my basement, so when it is finished it will be easier to maintain it and manage backups. Setting up a script that backs up the site and database every day was no problem at all since I have everything locally. That backup is made to a different disk, which I rsync to yet another external disk that I connect on a regular basis. Two days ago I was digging up my lawn for the new fibre internet connection that is about to be installed, so the speed and stability should be enough hopefully.

I found the website and it looks like there is at least a little bit from the VESC 5.0 thread available. Maybe that is helpful for someone.

No, sadly not. You can just have a look to the first page from that thread when you use the snapshot from the 7/7/2016 and the 20th page when you use for an example the snapshot from 10/30/2016. So not much, but more than nothing.
