Skotos Forums Closing: September 30

The Skotos Forums are officially closing on September 30, 2020. They will go read-only on that date, and will be removed entirely sometime afterward.

We encourage the games that spun off of Skotos to create new discussion mediums of their own, and some have already done so. But the centralized discussions for Skotos will soon be a thing of the past (just as the centralized Skotos site is).

We've also posted a goodbye message to the community on our main page, which you can find here:

            We have not, but I wasn't expecting to hear anything much before now, anyway. Shannon is now in Hawaii, where it's only 7:45 a.m.

            I'm hopeful we'll hear something in the next hour or two, and will pass along when we do. Thanks!

                    We've reached out again for a another restart.

                    In regards to the previous crash & lag: The game had not actually crashed before, but was just totally nonresponsive, not even responding to system-level shutdown requests. We're assuming that happened again, but we won't know until it can be reset once again. In regards to what might have caused this, as well as the recent lag spikes, server side seems to be showing some file bloat above what is typically seen after a cleanup. Continuing with recent efforts we're hunting through any system that could possibly be storing garbage files.

                    This second downtime followed the first's trend of becoming unresponsive right after backup, so we've asked that if possible that tonight's backup be subverted to give us more time to handle the investigation before a third iteration.

                    We appreciate your patience, and we'll let you know as soon as we have more info.

                      Are the multiple No Longer Busy echoes and the Orchil minimap bug related to this by any chance?

                        Those are more than likely a symptom of the lag spikes spoken of previously. After the lag has been taken care of, if the problem persists, then we'll work off bug reports (aka first hand accounts) from there to solve the issue(s).

                            Even when using hide? That seems to throw at least two no matter what, and is where I first noticed the multiple messages.

                              Game is back up for now. It seems the game just hit the granddaddy of lag spikes trying to process something so large it used up all the resources for the entire time the game was 'down' before it finally finished and processes resumed as normal (this is my personal conjecture pre-investigation). Now it's pretending there was nothing wrong. (-_-)

                              We're investigating. More (less 'guesstimated') info as we discover it.
