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.

    I got the same error when I tried to play in Firefox 3. Internet Explorer works fine, though.

    Since the last time I was able to actually play was before Firefox 3 came out, I'd speculate that some new standard it recognizes is interfering with the game code. Well, that's my best guess at least, but take it for what it's worth. (The guess of an amateur.)
