Restoring a deleted character?


Website Feedback

Grand Lodge

I know this is a silly complaint, but one of my concerns with the website is that long ago, my PFS -8 character was accidentally deleted and there appears to be no way to get my -8 character back. Is there any way that I can restore my -8 PFS character? At the moment, on my list I have my -7 and my -9 characters and beyond, but it drives me a little crazy that I am missing that one number. Is it possible for someone to restore that -8 character so that I can have all of my consecutive character numbers? I would be most grateful!

It looks like your deleted character is present in our database, but in an unusual data state that makes it complicated to restore. We will look into ways to handle organized play characters in this sort of state.

This would be wonderful I know Liam is not alone. I don't mind my -1 has been missing forever I use that as GM credit when it won't count for anything but number of tables run.

I know others are also in that state it's not common but a solution would be well welcomed.

I was curious if there was an update on this. I'm missing some of my Starfinder numbers and it bothers my OCD.


Liam, if you had any really distinctive text in the character profile, you could try searching web-wide. Years ago I found a lost post or character, I can't remember which, in a google archive web-page from when they were recording everything in the world.

I would love to know if you can bring back delete character.

Probably a good idea to include more information (like the character number) so they can tell whether they even have the record to restore.


Sorry for the thread necro, but "me too" - It's sort of a bad UI/database management design to not have some sort of control over which character you assign to a particular "dash".
I actually deleted both by -1 and -2 "slots" when I was experimenting with the website, not knowing I could never get those numbers back.
My played -1 and -2 are alive and well, and accumulating hard copies of their chronicles, which are being credited online to deleted characters.
