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.

    Since backups do nothing but make the game lag for the next 2 hours, can we make them weekly instead of twice daily.
    Argued with GM Tale on forums.
    Character wakes up with 2hp and 2 fatigue, mangled face.
    Skotos didn't care.

    I don't think you understand what backups do.

      I think it's quite obvious I do as I stated it in my original post. Please, learn to read before hastily replying.

          Come on Flar, you can troll better then that. I'm one tough cookie, if your gonna come up in my thread and start breathing fire, you gotta bring your "A" game. You gotta be the Michael Jordan of trolling, you gotta slam dunk those comments.. You can't be Rajon Rondo trying to shoot a three from the outside, it's not gonna happen.. I'll tell you what I'll give you another shot at it, make it longer then 4 words though. Really tell me why you feel the backups are so good "At the moment."

              The same way you get to Carnegie Hall. Practice. Practice. Practice.
              Now you know how NPCs feel at least. They wake up one day, ready to live their lives - and then someone stabs them in the face.

                GR got rolled back 8 months recently.

                Do you have any idea how frustrated people get when their effort in TEC gets rolled back 8 hours? Getting rolled back 6 days would be a sad day for TEC.
