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.

  • Skotos Verb additions to TEC

    In an effort to standardize things somewhat between TEC and the Skotos evocation system, several hundred new social commands and over 1000 adverbs have been added to TEC.

    The patterns of words in the new social commands can vary based upon how complex the concept being expressed is:

    > adverb verb preposition target speech-text
    > verb adverb preposition target speech-text
    > verb target speech-text
    > verb target

    The adverb can be any of an exhaustive list. If one is missing that you'd like to use, put it in an @request. The adverb is always optional.

    The verb is the command name, same as current TEC socials.

    The preposition will vary by command and isn't required for all commands.

    The target is the person or item within your environment that you wish to interact with.

    The speech-text will begin with a " and extend to the end of the command. The examples should make this clear.

    Examples:
    > rant at Tug "You constables. Always warranting me!
    > piteously whine to Kaylarae "Please, don't arrest me...

    The output will always be in the following order:

    > actor verb adverb preposition target speech-text.

    You see:
    > You rant at Tug, "You constables. Always warranting me!"
    > You piteously whine to Kaylarae, "Please, don't arrest me..."

    Tug sees:
    > JoeThief rants at you, "You constables. Always warranting me!"

    Kaylarae sees:
    > JoeThief piteously whines to you, "Please, don't arrest me..."

    Everyone else sees:
    > JoeThief rants at Tug, "You constables. Always warranting me!"
    > JoeThief piteously whines to Kaylarae, "Please, don't arrest me..."

    If any of the parts are missing and aren't required, then they won't be included into the output.

    As always, please @report any issues, errors or inconsistencies that may arise with the implementation of this system.

    We hope you enjoy it!
