All of us were wondering what happened to all the 40+ Dota replays in the upload section. So was I. All the Administrators of this forum have come with the answer.
The replays were kept in the FTP. It had a serious security issue. If any registered user took some small and simple steps, he could directly access the FTP and delete any uploaded file. On the 20th June, a REGISTERED USER of this forum deleted all the replays from the FTP.
Since then, this security issue has been corrected. The said member has also been warned by the admins. But his replies have been a tad arrogant. When he was issued the warning, he denied doing it. When he was shown the log of the FTP, which made it clear he deleted the replays (intentionally or unintentionally), his reply was quite unfavorable.
I, on behalf of BanglaGamer DotA community, am requesting him to upload the replays he has to FTP again. This token gesture is enough for me to forget the whole issue. Others, please upload th replays that you have downloaded from this forum, especially the league ones. I am requesting everyone personally..please help us.
On a firmer note, if you receive a warning from an admin, do not think that admins are powerless and can do nothing. The admins of this forum are hidden from all users, but they are all respected person, and their combined might is MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY MEMBER!
