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.

    Nick has a point though. To correctly give the sense that he's "building and crafting these objects from materials" its going to TAKE TIME! It's not like me, a tailor, who can get some IC plain clothing, and stitch and dye them while you wait. Plain things just don't exist for the carpentry world. Those are OOC objects that are created with the coding to allow you to "stain" and "alter" them to be the finished product. IC'ly, he's working from SCRATCH.

    Try to see this from his perspective. There's quite a few tailors and seamstresses - ESPECIALLY compared to there JUST being Lance for OB and Taralyn for IB. They have their students I'm sure, but you know they're not nearly up to par on skil as them.

    From neutral perspective - Give them a break?

    From what I was told, the book that was stolen or whatever that caused the orginal problem, was take and destroyed. I never saw or personally owned the book, so I don't know for sure. But I will state that everything I have left and everything I handed out was turned into something. I have nothing plain left.

    So what I'm thinking is that anything left over from the orginal ordeal is still floating around. It happens like that... it's the same with drugs. You can bust the Drug Lord and still have parts of his stash flowing around being sold.

    I'm not trying to argue with you, but share a point.

    Yes, I know some of you love annoying me and harassing me, but it really has to stop.

    If you want to page me, I don't mind talking to most people. But if you're going to ask some question about carpentry that is public knowledge, everyone knows, and is publicly posted on the boards, I'm going to complain.

    When will your order be ready? I have no fricking idea. It's not my fault. Don't bitch at me.


    And to whoever keeps poofing up thousands of these 'plain carpentry items' for personal trades, stop it. Just stop. IC, there is no such thing as a 'plain wardrobe'. Stop it. And to the rest of you who like to pick up plain furniture, alter it with your OOCly traded carpentry skill, 'building' a wardrobe out of your bare hands in six seconds, then mocking my character because you're 'so much faster', just stop. Could you pretend you're a roleplayer? How about pretending you're not a jackass? I'm not asking much.

    It's the same people doing the same crap all the time. It's the same people telling lies to newer players about how it's ok to get ahead through dishonesty. Inelegantly put, you suck.
