A major epoch of MafiaScum history. It happened around June 26th, 2003, and the forums remained down until about July 11th, 2003. Most everything from March 18th, 2003 on was lost, including Mini Games 29-43, as well as large portions of Mini Games 26-28. Some games running when The Crash occurred died, while others (London Mafia 1 and Intrigue Mafia in particular) were resurrected and played to completion. Everything before that can be found in the Mafiascum Archive, which may someday be integrated with the current forum records.
There had been two minor crashes previously; one lost one day's worth of data and the other lost a little more, but was early enough in the life of MafiaScum that very few posts/games were affected.
