In this case wasn’t any suit from Facebook or Twitter, just a rookie server tech make a big mess. YouLikeHits send this announce about incident:
Our database was destroyed recently by a server tech at our hosting company. We’re currently investigating what our options are and how much data we can bring back. We may end up having to take them to court over this. YouLikeHits will be back within the next couple of days but you may need to resignup.
After few hours they come with a sad info:
We are currently attempting to repair a corrupt database backup. If we’re successful then YouLikeHits will be back to the way it was before without any issues. If we’re unsuccessful then we will require everyone to resign up again to YouLikeHits. We will give some free points to everyone and re-add points that were purchased if necessary.
And today YouLikeHits declare on their Facebook page:
We were not able to repair the corrupt database ourselves but we are now sending it over to a company that specializes in this sort of thing. We’ll keep you updated when we know more.
Some people complains about thousands and thousands of lost points and at least I hope others will be able to learn how important backups are.
