OK people let's shout it loud for those at the back who haven't heard what's going on. 

 

 

OCTOBER 2017...yo this is the story all about how MPA got glitched, turned upside down. So the mods are gonna take a minute just wait right there while we explain multiple times about situations that have us pulling out our hair. 

 

(It's 1am alright cut me some slack)

 

 

MPA HAS A GLITCH. 

 

THIS IS AN ONGOING PROBLEM. 

 

THE STAFF ARE AWARE. 

 

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT AT THIS PRESENT MOMENT IN TIME. 

 

I get it. You're pissed. You've lost your account, lost hundreds of posts, or any of the other malfunctions the glitch likes to bandy about. 

 

The mods are losing posts too. I lost 1000+ at one point. 

One mod even lost their account temporarily. 

 

Making the same threads over and over again slating the site staff is NOT helping. Your account has not been banned. You would know about it if you were banned. We are not personally singling you out. 

 

Messaging us asking for your posts back is a waste of your time, there is nothing the Moderating Team can do, and it does nothing but fill up our inboxes. 

 

This is quite simply an IT error. MPA is a huge site, and costs a lot to run. MPA is also a free site, and we should all be grateful for that. It is a haven, a place of support, and something that we are lucky to have. So don't shit on your safe place.

Do you guys personally pay to keep MPA running?


coffee and smokes and

cold diet cokes

that's what pretty girls are made of.

it happened to me.

im fairly new to the site so i didnt have very many posts

it was however an inconvenience to get locked out of the protected forums and not be able to see my own accountability thread,

the moderators did get back to me in a very timely fashion to let me know what was going on.

 

This site really is amazing and i hope all the glitches get fixed soon.

This was a definite relief to read. I was getting anxious that I did something wrong. Thanks for all your help!

This would explain why my account was deleted. Thought maybe I did something wrong. Just re-registered. Glad to know! Bummer on the issues, tho.

I haven't experienced the glitch but I'll remember this if I do.

 

Now I'm scared about it :')


I'm scared to get close, and I hate being alone.
I long for that feeling to not feel at all.
The higher I get, the lower I'll sink.
I can't drown my demons, they know how to swim.
