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.

        • What happened? Last month we were in 7th place. So far this month, we've fallen off the charts!

          Remember, Elmer only loves people who vote.

            • Marrach has dropped to number 15 on the mud games site! I vote whenever I log on. Come on, folks, we have to bump it up so we can get those new players! They are the lifeblood of CM.

              • I am so sad. I checked Top Mud Sites today, December 1st, and Castle Marrach has gone from 15th place to having dropped off the list completely. How could this have happened?

                • PaladinHeart this happens every month. All votes are reset. So people must keep voting throughout the month to keep CM on the leaderboard.
