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.

    Glad I could help people out. I ran into that problem about a year ago, took me forever to figure out what the issue was.

    Kievn's Player, you are my new favourite person. Thank you, turning off smart punctuation did the trick.

    Thanks to Kievn's player, I found out why! Apparently some of the newer Apple devices have strange punctuation (even though they look the same), so the client won't work. If you go to settings, general, keyboard, and toggle where it says "smart punctuation" to off, that worked for me

    Good iPhone Mud Client?

    So, Iíve been using PocketMUD for when I logged onto CM on my phone, but I just got a new iPhone (8 plus), and anytime I used a ďĒ or Ď it wonít send it onto the server >.> I have had this issue with previous devices (like my iPad), but never with my phone. I was wondering if there were any other good possible MUD clients for the Apple iOS.
