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.

                As you can see by the amount of post that has been deleted from this thread, it has gone the same route as all past LOL threads. Please keep in mind what has gotten these types of threads closed MULTIPLE times in the past when posting.

                    it's good to be able to laugh at yourself, and show off to everyone who missed it, how uninformed you really are. Kudos to laughing at yourself.

                      Yeah. I totes think dolphins are fish that have eggs.

                      And it's completely realistic that a circa 200 BC character knows the difference between sea mammals, fish, and amphibeans well enough to describe them, and has enough knowledge of dolphins to 1.) know that they are related to porpoises, and 2.) know that they have humanlike sexual organs.

                      Like I seriously can't tell if you're trolling? The scene was hilarious, and I felt it deep down in my feels.

                      Read Homer's "Hymn to Apollo" some time, bro. It's a great story, it gives a pretty clear view of what the most educated and famed poet in the world thought about Dolphins, and it also paints an interesting political story about delphys/delphis as enunciative device and the way a poet was able to be very critical of the rape of an indiginous culture by a foreign conqueror.

                          "It reads like poetry written by someone over thirty."

                          This is the most beautiful metaphor in that whole awesome link.

                          Thank you.

                            Sounds about right.
                            A woman in a shiny boison helmet with an absurdly tall dome says to a ram in Cineran, "Oh yes, hit me now, you bad bad bad sheep."
                            A woman in a shiny boison helmet with an absurdly tall dome is stunned.
                            A ram bumps roughly into a woman in a shiny boison helmet with an absurdly tall dome with its head!.

                              I've been giggling over this since last night.

                              Vladmir: Xianna kills an intruder by whacking him in the head with Ael's urn.
                              Xianna: Hehe
                              Vladmir: It should be a magical item. If you pick it up you should be able to perform legstrike at the rank Aelavius' had it WITH the urn
                              (Aelavius): no f*** legstrike! knockaside and upswing!

                                The legio trolling a militia for paying mercenaries to fight the legio's battles for them since the legio is incompetent.

                                I love this game so much.
