Yep I crashed it, we had a folder named data and i accidentally deleted it causing everyone's avatar and any uploaded files/screenshots/images to break :(

I am sorry for the loss but i hope we can recover by playing some DOTA!

Didnt you make a backup of ur site with your hosting service?
Also back when i managed some forums i used to make a backup copies offline aswell (on my hardrive).

As a thumb rule dont test new ideas directly at the main website..
make another test website to implement new ideas. (alot of hosting sites allow you more than one website hosting with the alloted webspace)

if you dont have the above facility then make a new subdomain, ideas.dota2pk.com etc and test stuff there..

If u can manage to export your threads and other data from admin cp.
Do that and make fresh install of the forums.
Skins can be exported and later imported aswell.
