Over the past few months I put quite a bit of work in to sprucing up the ol' Manhunter from Mars's page; it looks like that work may be lost.

I first noticed a few days ago that the page was coming up blank except for one line under "Creation." Currently it is closer to where I had left it about a month ago, but still missing big chunks of edits, notably an analysis of the character's development over the years and a summary of how his weakness to fire has been portrayed over the years.

Can anyone point to why this was done? Was it some kind of error? I think both of the missing sections I mentioned were in keeping with the style guide, certainly more than the some what rambling story arc section, which, now that I look at it, is all under the Origin heading...something is definitely up.

Can the mods access previous saves and restore it to it's more Style Guide friendly form?

@mathematicscore: probably more wiki vandalism, lot of douche bags out there, looks like someone already restored it for you but it still needs some work to fix the images and links. I'll fix it up tomorrow if whoever restored it doesn't finish it.

Looking more closely, this is definitely a much earlier version; Origin is not the primary section, there is no Currently section, the writings I referred to above are still missing, and the photos are not the same as more recent fare.

Can the Mods "rewind" saves?

@mathematicscore: The site does not have revisions, the one restored is from a cache on another site and it might be as good as it gets, I'll look into it though.

Page was utterly wiped out except for one section. It was either rolled back or somebody restored it using a slightly outdated cache or something. This is as good as it gets, I'm afraid. All I can recommend is doing your best to restore it to its former glory.

@Mercy_: Indeed! Thanks for the response.

To be honest, the whole thing needed a big revamp anyway. Still I was durn proud of some of that.

IT SHALL BE REBUILT.

Pretty sure G-Man himself said that they can restore pages.

@Billy Batson: they can by grabbing it off database backups but that would require an engineer and they are probably busy with the new site.
