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.

  • Goodbye everyone!

    Hello, this is Dallas. I took down my guild post from yesterday because I'm leaving the city.
    Things have gotten too rough for me here, I'm no longer happy. I wish I were. I planned on doing
    so much more for the Docktown that I love and cherish. Sometimes though you
    just have to do what's best for your own mind and heart. So it doesn't tear you down to nothing.

    I'm heading east I think, probably to Portuer du Soieil. Maybe? I'm not sure. Probably though.
    So if you're ever out that way and don't hate me then look me up. I'll treat you to dinner
    or something. Unless I've moved on by then or something. Who knows.

    I hope Docktown and its people grow and prosper in such a way that no one sees coming.
    I hope it becomes the shining beacon that it deserves to be. That its people no longer
    go hungry, that they find work, and they are risen up to bask in their own success.
    I wish many things for my home. Maybe one day I might come back and see how things
    are going but then again maybe not. I'm not wanted here except by the few friends I
    have left. Friends I love dearly. I will see you all either in the future or in the after.

    Good luck to all and Light keep you.

    Dallas
