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.

  • Hey

    Most unimaginative thread title FTW.

    So I came back for a bit and it's fun, but quiet. I'm enjoying all the RP I can get though.

    Curious if anyone who I know is still out there.

    I used to take care of the old player pictures site (not gonna link to it in case people have asked me to take pics down). I am sure I've gotten emails to the address for changes. I'll see if I can find the password to retrieve them if there's interest in me bringing it back. Everyone looks so young on it. I bet new pictures would be fun to see.

    I think that's it. Just saying hi.

          I remember taking 30 minutes just to hit the send button on that blurry ass picture that's on the site. Good to see you around again.
