I understand why this was fixed, but the method and timing were bad. When
EverQuest II was removed as a version of EverQuest and moved to it's own appdb
entry in response to this message the only thing preserved was the test data.
The votes for the application, the comments (with much needed info), maintainer
notes (including howtos), and even the maintainers were removed. None of the
bugs reported for Everquest 2 that were linked to the app are linked anymore and
do not appear on the new appdb page. After being forced to re-apply to be a
maintainer once again and doing a lot of searching through cached google pages I
was able to restore some of the lost info. Is there a way to link the bugs to
the appdb entry or not? Can the votes for the application be restored? Why wasnt
this left to a super maintainer to correct instead? Why wasnt enough time
allowed for input before an arbitrary change was made?
