Did the 1.6 section get wiped at some point?

Just wondering. I feel like it's missing about a million old skins? Or am I misremembering?

    Yes, it did about 10 years ago. Which is why some of us have taken upon the task of restoring as much lost content as it is humanly possible.

    Yes, some butthole decided to wipe it out of existence.

    The new one, however, someone decided to split CS into two games, 1.5 and 1.6.

    This may be an insensitive question, but can we talk about the guy who deleted those content 10 years ago? It's been a big mystery to me and why he even did it...

    Damn, was there really no backup? That's just tragic. Not to be pessimistic, but I'd assume most modders had deleted the files on their computers long before the wipe. They probably trusted the site to keep copies or to be safe from admin abuse. 
    Crazy how trusting the wrong person with admin rights can have such far reaching consequences. It's no small responsibility to run a site like this, I remember fpsbanana was kind of a big deal back in the day. I think most (non-casual) CS players around the world knew about it, and that was hundreds of thousands if not millions of people. It's genuinely relieving to know that a big chunk of it was recovered thanks to your efforts, but if I may be sincere with you, a decade after the fact, it's highly unlikely that you'd see any more old stuff being recovered, we probably have better chances of getting new quality content from new or returning modders instead. The person that did this did some serious, permanent damage to the game's community. Real piece of work.
