Someone tried to vandalise the database by deleting about 76k entries.
I restored those entries and have temporarily disabled the delete and edit functions to prevent further damage.
In foresight I have implemented those functions in a non-destructive manner.
Nothing is actually deleted but just flagged as such.
Edits just create a new copy of an entry but leave the previous version intact.
This incident makes me think about introducing user accounts where users can only edit or delete their own entries. Maybe I will keep it simple by letting every album be created with some kind of password that the user can define when uploading the log. This way they can edit or delete their entries but not others. There have been other deletions in the past, mostly by people who think that vinyl, MP3 or self-improved versions of albums should not be there. I will address this issue in an upcoming FAQ at some time in the future.
I deliberately designed this project as a community project with wiki-like user privileges (everyone can do everything). I'm not a company, I (a single person) run this project in my free time and it is not my top priority in real life. This is why I don't respond to e-mails in most cases and why I don't introduce updates often. But I care about this project nonetheless and see that it is important to people. Major issues are always addressed at some point.
