Your post reminds me about when my packs all went missing for some reason.

I never understand the difficulty in managing these databases... they aren't particularly large or complex, and merging the wa3 and wa2 databases should have been trivial.

I understand that the database is quite big and there is some substantial load, but neither of these have an effect on functionality beyond speed.

So why is it broken so often?

Personally I would expect the answer to be lack of manpower rather than some kind of incompetence... databases really are trivial.
