Broken stats on old WordPress MU 2.8.2

I’ve been having a big problem with stats with my company’s install of WP MU. First, the stats for all three sites I administer there disconnected from my professional Akismet account and attached themselves to my personal account.

?!

I can’t even express how horrifying this was, and I still don’t understand how it happened.

Fortunately I got excellent support from the peeps at WordPress.com, and they reattached the sites to the correct Akismet account, but unfortunately they could only attach the stats going forward–the info for the past year is still attached to my personal account. There’s a fix for it, but it’s for updated sites and plugins, and we’re definitely not running the most recent releases for either WordPress or WordPress Stats. Even worse, they’re not slated to be updated any time soon by those that control the servers.

If you know of a WordPress¬†plugin that’s up-to-date and still runs on MU, let me know so I can try to run the fix, because until it’s repaired, stakeholders have to come to me for their past stats, and as much as I live to serve, it’s so much easier when they can access that information on their own.
