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.

            • Guys, we're slipping. TEC has been beating us the past two months and we can't have that. It's very easy to @vote and it really does make a difference. We all love getting an influx of players, right? Right? Did you know you can @vote every 12 hours? Put it on your Google calendar!

              • Tomorrow begins a new month.

                It can't be understated how vastly important it is that everyone @vote every opportunity they get. You can vote once from a unique IP address once every 12 hours.

                Remember, voting helps grow the game that you love to play!

                            • When I voted, we were at 10th place with 117 votes, Approx 30 votes behind 9th place.

                              I have looked through the topsites several times in the past before CM and have chosen games according to their popularity. No matter how amazing CM is, it would be one of the last games to try, if I hadn't already found a game I liked. This is the first time I have tried a text-based game, and I wouldn't be here if it weren't for my sister telling me about it.

                              More people equals more conversations, more laughter, and also, more drama. More people means more bells and events, and our guilds will fill up. More people means more competition!! Not to mention, more people means...a very happy queen.

                              Voting helps with this. The higher up on the board we are, the more likely someone will give CM a try!

                              • We ended April in the top 10, which is great. It keeps CM visible on the page. Remember to @vote -- its easy, it can be done every 12 hours and it really helps your game.
