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.

    You forgot the "he's neither, but I do know him" and the "he's cute, but not as cute as kittens" option.

    Not that anyone would choose the first, but hey, gotta be complete if you want valid data.

        Hrm...tough choice, seeing as how I've never been quite fond of cats. Kittens...well, they're alright at times, but they grow up, which needs to be taken into consideration. In conclusion, however, nothing is cuter than this.
