Skotos Forums Closing: September 30

The Skotos Forums are officially closing on September 30, 2020. They will go read-only on that date, and will be removed entirely sometime afterward.

We encourage the games that spun off of Skotos to create new discussion mediums of their own, and some have already done so. But the centralized discussions for Skotos will soon be a thing of the past (just as the centralized Skotos site is).

We've also posted a goodbye message to the community on our main page, which you can find here:

  • Data Breach

    I just received a notice from a company that keeps track of my email and looks for it to show up in places it should not. It seems Skotos in September suffered a Data Breach and a number of emails and passwords were potentially exposed. While I might not have much time to play these days I do still care about the community and encourage others that did not know of this breach to change your passwords just to be on the safe side.

    Also a tip for passwords: We all know we should have a unique password for everything that requires a password, but realistically that's likely not going to be the case for most people. At the very least don't use the same password for vital accounts as you use for entertainment accounts. IE: Your Bank account password should not be the same as your Skotos account password.

    EDIT:
    Seems the data breach might have been on the forums as I use a different password for the forums than I use for my general account and it was my forum account password that was exposed.

    That was about a month after Yuuta put up the post about hidden links. I am not sure if any of that happened here, but I see people posting weird links that I don't touch and they have like 1 post.

      Completely impossible as I've not been active on the forums. I'm not too worried about it on my end, but as the notice that I got specifically earmarked Skotos as a site that was potentially breached I figured I would share with the community.

        Thanks, Kaori. Did you bring this to the attention of Skotos?

        It's always good to change our passwords regularly.

        Taite, when I come across those weird posts, I flag them as spam or phishing or something suspicious.
