Thank you. As you suggest, a rude shut-down was probably the cause of crashed tables, though the web host denies this could have happened. Generally speaking, as web page records, only 1 record is queried at a time, by its specific ID number.

The `deleted` field facilitates flagging records as deleted (instead of allowing the client to delete records by mistake). A system administrator strongly advised me to use a `deleted` field in tables where clients and/or non-technical people have access to data. Having adopted the usage of a `deleted` column, occasional client-orchestrated deletions become recoverable.

Similarly, the `hidden` field is manipulated when publicly available records are incomplete (not ready for prime time).
