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.

  • Miss this game

    I miss the magic I found while playing this game. I've never found another like it, and likely never will.
    Blame Skotos.

    Signatures should not exceed the length of this.

      I still remember reading Vino's Vineyard for the first time.

      The sense of wonder, mystery, and the depth of the gameworld was immense for me, for years. I don't anticipate finding anything quite like it ever again. Though, I've grown up quite a bit since then too.

      You were a good part of that time, Luc. It was pretty amazing.

        What are you talking about? It's still amazing! *clutches the java client while rocking back and forth mumbling about sewer snake heads, pod beetles, and 'just one more fatigue bar'*

        Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Creativity is putting tomatoes in a fruit salad to make mango salsa. Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is actually a smoothie. Common Sense is knowing that no, ketchup is not a smoothie.

            It's like an amphora; it gets more magical the longer you've been away.
