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.

  • To those who have noted my absence...

    I can assure you completely it isn't by choice. Lazarus may tend to be boring and stressful at times but the players always make things seem better. No, my problem lies in RL. Due to a situation on another game and confused emotions involving that, I have had to take a leave of absence from all but my stronger chars, which is to say, those that I can RP without receiving emotional backlashes from.

    Sadly to say, my three characters (Yes, three) all have flaws and emotional problems which will affect me. So therefore, I am to remain away from them as long as possible to allow myself to recover.

    Just to outline the situation so people don't think I'm just making excuses...

    I've been deemed unfit for work in my country by health standards and also have the tag of "Emotionally unstable". It's believed any extra stress or strain I take on may drive me over the edge. I have to keep my mind focused and distracted at all times to keep it from slipping and am already seeking professional help for this.

    Yes, I may sound insane, I think the same thing, but it's a RL problem, one which needs to be dealt with before I can deal with anything else. It's better for me to take some time away, let myself recover than to strain myself more and eventually do more damage.

    So... I apologise to anyone and everyone whom my absence may affect, I can assure you I will be returning and most likely soon, if I can control myself.

    Gotta love Hunter Man

    Striding along the path, rifle in my hand. My senses spreading, across this vast land. The beast inside, coming alive. Looking around, watching everything thrive. I know I can't come, to any harm. There's no need, for any alarm. I'm Hunter Man, wild and free. There's no-one else... quite like me!

    The power of One means nothing, if there are not many to appreciate it.

          Hey Ri, RL always should come first man. Do what you got to do to keep yourself together, and we will still be here to hang out with when you are feeling better. Stress is one of those things we sometimes forget can get us in a lot of problems, so do what you need to to get yourself healthy again.
