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.

  • New VPs, Staff Members, and a Position Change

    Howdy!

    I am happy to announce a bunch of VP casting announcement as well as new recruits, and a position change.

    First, we need to welcome new VP castings of Mark Trevayne and Mistress Ermengarde. Both of them flew out of the gate with Mark getting punched by Allenya in his first hour in-game and Ermengarde beginning to re-structure the Tailor/Seamstresses. With luck, we should have additional VP castings happening within the next few weeks.

    Next, I want to welcome two new staff members - StoryCoder Babylon and StoryBuilder Squinch - to our ranks. Be sure to say hi! to the new folk. Both have experience in their own way and are already throwing themselves into the tasks before them. We should have another Coder and another Builder coming online to assist us within the coming weeks as well.

    As for the position change, I am pleased to announce that I'm formally anointing StoryPlotter Skelly as our new Lead StoryPlotter. Frankly, this is long overdue and Skelly has been devoting more time and energy and creativity to the game than I would ever have the right to ask her for. She makes a measurable impact on the game environment on a daily basis and we, and the game, would be less without her. She and I will stay in constant contact over plot elements, but she should now become your first contact for anything plot or story related.

    For me, I'm going to be focusing on larger, long-term stuff that we've been promising forever and taking equally forever to get done. You know what I'm talking about, so 'nuff said.

    That's it. Enjoy. See you in-game.
