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.

      Change all non-coms to have an effect in combat so you could still get your loot/chests.

                  Hey retards? GM Heralds are not IC. They're OOC statements. The only person you make look like a douche when you bring OOC into the game is you.

                  Of course... Haha, there's been metric tons of that lately so I guess I am not surprised.

                        • Was listening to this the whole time I was helping constantine get everyone wasted in The Stone Toga.

                          There was talk of a heram getting started for Constantine. I imagined Constantine dancing every time the "He's Mr. Steal 'Yo Giiiiirl" line dropped.

                          Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Creativity is putting tomatoes in a fruit salad to make mango salsa. Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is actually a smoothie. Common Sense is knowing that no, ketchup is not a smoothie.
