Forums Reversion

The cloud server that hosts the main Skotos web site and the forums experienced a hardware failure on Saturday morning that unfortunately led to severe database corruption. Several attempts to restore it failed.

This led us to our backups, but the timing was a bit unfortunate. Since the failure occurred on a weekend morning, we didn't see it until after a new backup occurred, which contained the corrupted data, and which removed our previous daily backup. This forced us to our weekly backup, which was unfortunately at the end of its time: six days old.

So, the forums are back, but we had a six-day reversion.

This should not have affects on the rest of the site, since the majority of our data is saved in our main-user-database or our games, all on remote machines.

  • "My page" not loading

    Since about 12-18 hours ago, when I log in to my account and select "My page", I keep getting an error that the connection was reset.
    I've tried several devices, browsers and connections.

    As I believe this page to be part of the Premium subscription, I figured I'd post it here.

    The issues started around the same time there were lag spikes in The Eternal City, a short while before we started having Orchil issues.

    It seems to match up with Shannon's changes to "integrate Orchil" or something like that. I got a connection initially and am now getting an empty response.
    In his post he said he still had more to mop up, I assumed he'd fix it then.

          There any timescale on this?
