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.

    So I want to pick a nice avatar for my forum posts, but it's so difficult to figure out whether or not something is copyrighted and even more difficult, if it is copyrighted, to figure out what permission I would have to use it as an avatar.

    Where did you guys get all your really cool Avatar pictures from? And would you be willing to help out somebody who is neither Tech nor internet savvy? Any tips or suggestions for good free sources would be much appreciated.

    Most people honestly just use actors/actresses. No one (afaik) has gotten in trouble for using diff. photos for Avatars. Have you a visual for Hildegard?

      I'm still just trying to figure out why Kona's avatar shows some ethnic chick when in-game she's a pink eyed, blonde white girl. \_(ツ)_/

        Her hair is dyed and the failed "binding" changed her eye color. I'm lazy with photoshop. She is an "ethnic chick" XD

        EDIT: For the record, I'd like her original eye color back :P

          Vincint Dude, lol, have you never typed "look Kona"? She is described as having a "nut-brown complexion". xD

          Blodwen Thank you so much, that is a great relief to me! There are a couple actresses-in-their-roles whose pictures might look close enough to Hildegard to pass for now.

                  I love Fleetwood Mac, but I hate all of you. XD.

                  You can only win back my love by donating enough SP for me to change Kona's look to "ethnic". Jk.

                    Ya, the eye color change is unfortunate. I hadn't realized it was part of that not-binding-binding thing. Also, she is warm bronze, which is a make up hue, so I'm going for bronze over nut brown, otherwise she'd be in the wrong cosmetic color category. *prim monocle of attention*

                    I, too, love Fleetwood Mac. My middle name is Rhiannon, so I grew up with it. Did not expect anyone else here to be Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks fans tho. Maybe Charmiam.

                      Can confirm Kona is bronze complexion and Charmiam is a Fleetwood Mac fan

                        Ah, okay, I must be confusing her with someone else. But I remembered that she wasn't white! =)

                            Charmiam On a dark and stormy night around 8 months ago Charmiam sang "Dreams" while Kona was on the bridge with her, I said I love Fleetwood Mac OOCly, you said you did too.

                            My memory is a curse.
