all games deleted by themselves...

was playing geoguessr during admin at school, went to the printer to collect something and came back to discover that my computer was off, i switched it back on done some work and then played geoguessr, but since i got a bad score on a game i went to delete it only to discover that all of my ongoing games (which there were a LOT of from a few months ago, including a 114 streak which really sucks) had disappeared apart from three of them.

so the obvious thing to think is that someone went to my computer, clicked 'delete all' and then switched it off, but i dont think this is likely as three games from march are still there, so obviously not all of them were deleted, and there definitely would not be enough time to manually delete all of them down to that, and i also had games before march. also, i was on access, and the chrome was on a different tab, so i doubt someone in my class clicked off access, onto chrome, switched tabs, went to profile and then ongoing games and deleted all because no one in my class plays geogeussr and no one in my class is that malicious.

so what happened? is it something wrong with the site itself? really though, it has ruined my day and probably my weekend because i had a lot of nostalgic games and a 114 streak ive had going from last year so im really hoping that theres some way to recover these games through the servers or some other way...

thanks for any help.

  • We do not delete games from our end so someone deleted them I would assume. We cannot revive them from our end.

  • sorry i took a while to respond but i really dont think someone deleted them, ive never used the 'delete all' feature but i would assume it deletes every single ongoing game you have, and for the amount of ongoing games i had (at least 50) and for the time i was away it would have been impossible for someone to manually delete all of them bar 3 games from march.

    there really is no way that someone would have deleted them without me noticing, or my 2 friends who sit next to me noticing in that window of time so if this isnt a server issue or something with the site then i do not know what it was.

    also, i remember a thread from a few months ago of someone complaining they lost their only streak game of the day (before the 20 minute feature for non-pro players was added) by guessing italy when it was san marino, and you were able to restore that for them, so at the very least couldnt you restore the 114 streak game?

    im sorry if im coming off as rude here, its just really frustrating to have all these games from so many months ago disappear without a clear reason, especially the 114 streak which i had had going on for months, and probably nearly a year at this point. thanks for any help.

  • Hi,

    I could restore a streak due to the player having a link to the game. Im not able to restore a streak if you do not have the link to it Im afraid.

  • i think if i check my history i'll have a link, but after checking i can confirm that this is more of a problem than all my games being deleted as some games dont save to my ongoing games, specifically the daily challenge. i started a default 'world' game and that saved fine.

    since youre associated with geoguessr officially, is it possible that they made a change to the site where daily challenge games cant save, and as quite a few of my ongoing games were daily challenge ones i never got around to completing it deleted them along with regular ones? that seems like the most probable thing to me.

    and sadly, i dont think i can find a link to it since the game is gone, is there really no other way to get the streak back? or even start a new one at the same level?

    thanks for any help.

  • Hi,

    No we have not made changed so that certain games arent saved to the activity log.

    Its not possible without a link to revive a streak or start a streak from a certain point from our end. There are however extensions out there made by someone which will help get the correct answer on a streak. So perhaps check that out and then speed it up to the streak you were on.
