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.

    A gladiator, wielding an arena trident, walks in from the southwest corner of the arena floor.

    A man in a dark red helmet with a faceplate resembling a snarling wolf nods.

    [Success: 95, Roll: 9] You jab at a man in a dark red helmet with a faceplate resembling a snarling wolf with the point of your bronze-tipped spear, but miss. A man in a dark red helmet with a faceplate resembling a snarling wolf steps to the side, avoiding your attack.

    A man in a dark red helmet with a faceplate resembling a snarling wolf says to you, "Don't do that again."
    Did you do it again?

    I would have.

    • Someone fighting in the arena got mad that someone in the arena tried to fight him?
      Don't tread on me.

      • I guess my catch all macros do have their limitations.
        Nothing much to say.

        • Like eliciting OOC behavior from other players?

          If someone had hit one of my characters in the arena I would have rolled with it. Much more entertaining that way.

          I don't know why more people don't do this, actually.
          Don't tread on me.

            It was a warning. And having a 95 to hit them doesn't seem like it would have been too interesting a fight. From how I see it anyway.

              Did the make the comment to all the NPC gladiators too? Or just PCs?

                Someone could technically just sit in the arena and RP as a gladiator and knock out anyone who walks in. Nothing illegal about it.

                  That's exactly my point.

                    Fair enough then.

                    • I've had my characters take some swings on people and had my characters gotten beat there. When I had a character playing captain he laughed at anyone trying to claim a non-glad attacked them. The sands are essentially free game.

                      • Does this mean I can request Gladiators be able to attack each other?

                          Sounds good to me.

                            • I'm not really tossed up about it. My character is untrained, learning the ropes, and the faceplated man took it fine and we RPed it a little. Even let my untrained self have the arena so skilled gladiators wouldn't beat me up. No hate. Back to LoL?

                              More of a timing thing with bad macros. Anyways, I need to take my signature to heart. Back to lol.
