Downtime Report: Wednesday Night

We had an abrupt and unannounced downtime for all games and services starting sometime after 9pm PT on Wednesday evening. This was due to a massive power outage at our cloud computing facility of the sort that redundant systems are supposed to ensure never happen. After about an hour they were able to diagnose that the power was out. It took a few more hours for them to start restoring service.

At this moment, everything is back up except for Ironclaw and TEC. At the rate they're restoring things, I hope those will be back up in the next 15-30 minutes, but it's entirely in their hands.

As is typically the case with a sudden reboot, TEC and GR have to be rolled back. This is already done with GR. The TEC rollback should be just a few hours due to the more recent backups recently instituted, but I need to get the machine back before I can verify that.

Update: Ironclaw and TEC are now back too. The TEC rollback was 2.5 hours, from 9.30pm PT (when everything crashed) to 7.00 pm PT.

  • Adding a "How-To" start playing to wikidot, maybe homepage too

    I read somewhere that someone was having issues getting their husband to play because navigating past creating an account is difficult. Can we add a series of pictures, like below (but better) to both the wiki and the page?

    When they (the hordes of new people) get there, they see a series of slides like below, which tells them with pictures how to deftly "create an account", pay or use the free features, and get playing.

    You know what kind of website I want to see dedicated to?

    A Chargen Build Guide...

    IT tells you what each choice gives.... like, Spindly body form = speed, coltish body form = agility etc etc..

    That would make rolling good chars for newbs easy.. who wants to start off all spread out like a jackass, with fairly good everything.

        It's just a game man, a role playing game, make a character, it's not like you're playing Yezrah7 in text form, play what you get, and improve it as the character ages, or don't. Loss of a character isn't the end of the game, it's just a chance to play a different character.
