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.

        Time to dust off those roleplaying skills, and maybe make apologies to

        furthering their own plots, and maybe have a hand in stirring up something
        of interest. (Please do not ask for meetings with high ranking NPCs....such
        encounters have to be planned out in advance in line with ongoing
        plots...which is why they usually only show at events. Feel free to request
        if you're not sure who is deemed high ranking.)

                          The Eternal City has been open to its players for 10 years this year, and
                          we've seen a lot of people come and go. Overall, it's been a great
                          community for most to be a part of. Please come share your thoughts and
                          opinions on the game, its rights, its wrongs, and everything in between.
                          We'll talk about the past and help one another plan for the future. Meet in
                          the Welcome Area, Meeting Room C.

                            Brother and Sister smiths, this meeting may be short in nature as it's to

                            so we might have a few announcements and a long celebration.
