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.

  • Ooohh. Oooh. Clans.

    *As various monsters mill in and out of the Shrine, they discuss various events. Some (most?) brag about their recent victories, over the succulent juicy uglies. Others (lots) are too busy settling their own problems, arguing, insulting, and challenging. A lone troll sits in the corner, wading through some grunt intestines with a severed shriveled foot that seems to have once belonged to an orc.

    The ones who bother to recall the troll mention that he was performing some kind of an augury. Apperantly unsatisfied, he decided to use a less effecient, more boring, mostly useless and rarely effective method of divination. He started asking others

    He asked them of the clans. He asked them of the powers. What kinds are out there, What are they about, What is special about them. He asked, some answere, most shrugged and continued on with their own individual bickering and bragging.*
