Will all the content still be there, and I signed up on the site about a month ago. Will my account still be there?

All the content will be there, but your account will not, unless LFN succeeds in recovering the data, which isn't something we should count on. I'm sorry, but you'll have to sign up again.

The answer to this question is probably going to be no, but I want to check anyway. Will private messages sent after February still be intact, or does the forum database hold all the PMs as well, thus losing all PMs from February onwards?

I'm sorry to say no, but they are lost as well.

Damn, no one ever sends me PM's and then suddenly I got about 3 and now they're gone! I don't even know who they were from! Oh well, I'm glad to see you haven't pulled the plug on the World of MI, like the SCUMM Bar has (R.I.P.). WHY IS MOJO CURSED! There are some things in this world we may never know...

Urrrr this makes me mad I really need to get access to my email because there was some messages sent to me from someone on ebay regarding shipping costs and I can't see them so I can't pay for the item. Worldofmi better be back soon.

You can access your email here in the meantime:

I'm sorry for the inconvinience. We're doing everything we can to get things working again as quickly as possible.

I can't live without The World of Monkey Island

Soon :) There have been some additional DNS problems, but I expect the site to be back within the next few days.

The WMI emails are working again and there's a login box at the site.

Good to hear that the site is on its way to recovery. The top resource for in-jokes will be back. Oh and can check some email, thats equally good news.

06-19-2003, 06:55 PM
Yes, thank you very much for fixing the e-mail. I'm extremely happy that I finally receive my Viagra catalogues and human growth hormone order forms again. :)

PS: Seriously, I really do appreciate it.

Yeah, I missed those too :)

Latest news is that the data on the hard drive can be recovered! This means that no accounts, PMs, or anything else will be lost. We'll wait with bringing the site back until we have the restored files, so it'll be a few more days :)
