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.

    This right here is actually the perfect syntax and we could just copy and paste right from that!

    Thanks for double checking!

    Would it be helpful to use any particular format, like karmode?

    If so, what is the syntax?

    We are looking for players to help write up descriptions for animals. Since real world animals (rabbits, dogs, etc.) are the "people" in ICO, the animals are various types of reptiles (skinks, drays, etc.).

    We don't want players to have to memorize a bunch of different animal names, so we're going to use categories of animals instead. The first category that we will be working on is "growlers," which are dog-like lizards. They will have various purposes, such as for hunting.

    The very minimum we need from you is the look and examine for the animal (you can skip the brief). If you want to write descriptions for individual body parts (head, legs, claws, tail, skin, etc.), that's even better!

    Example:
    Brief: a skink
    Look: A small lizard with a very sleek body that bears five lines.
    Examine: A small lizard with a very sleek body that bears five lines. It usually consumes insects but will at times devour other lizards.

    I will give 5 to 10 storypoints per submission at my discretion based on how detailed the description is (more details = more storypoints) and how much extra work staff has to do to make it usable (less work = more storypoints).

    Please send all submissions to guinness@ironclaw.skotos.net.

    If you have any questions, please respond in this thread. Someone else might be wondering the same thing!
