  1. Is it possible to sue a developer for deleting all my server files and leave me with an empty ftp?
     
  2. I'm not a lawyer, but you could probably sue for damages

  3. I highly doubt you will be able to. What state/country do you live in?
     
  4. The developer stays in Singapore I'm from the UK

    Unless the damages are more than >£1000, there is almost no point - if they're in the same country.

    As they're in a different country, no point at all. No court will want to extradite someone for you to sue them over a block game.

  6. So technically sueing isn't possible rite
     
  7. 1. Imagine the court's reaction.
    2. You shouldn't trust people online that quickly.
    3. You shouldn't trust people at all.
    4. Start backing up more regularly as @ImperialSwag offered.
     
  8. No, a court of law will just laugh and throw the case out.

  9. So basically I can't do anything rite

    You can take it as a learning experience. Take backups, and be careful on which people you trust to access your server(s).
     
  11. It's time to redo everything... @AshyzBoyz In fact in light of this occasion I'm going to back up my Network right now! :D (Even though no one has root access but still. you cant be too safe :3)
     
  12. You will probably go viral though :D
     
  13. I would pay to walk into that courtroom.

  14. Lol its alright guys I don't think I can do anything
     
  15. well what if the plugins cost money and custom made plugins which devs made
     
  16. I'd try to ask the Hosting Company to do a rollback but I highly doubt they'll do anything.
    Give it a shot anyway.

  17. what if its like custom which developers made and I paid
     
  18. If they're not made by the dev then he can download the resource again. :p Again if the they're from the dev then EOL.
     
  19. That's why you have offsite backups...
