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.

  • Accessible Skotos (Visual Impairment)

    Are you blind or visually impaired and play a Skotos game? Are you having trouble with the new clients (Flash and Zealotry) because of your visual impairment? Go to the thread below, and make your voice heard! The more people they hear from, the more likely they are to make the changes necessary.

    http://forum.skotos.net/showthread.php?t=70065

    Thank you,
    Jewel, a legally blind Skotos customer

      Wow Earen. The world can only hope that asshole such as yourself gets hit by a truck today.

        I'm not certain how long she's been a skotos member, but I think it has been a LONG time, as in nearly a decade or more so she isn't a new player. I enjoy playing with Jewel, as a player I really like the RP with her characters.

        Personally Earan, I think you have failed. Please go crawl back under your rock and leave the people who aren't harming anyone by requesting help to be able to play alone.

        As I have replied to her request int he "General Skotos" thread, I won't repeat my reasons for support of her request here.

          That was actually pretty funny.

          My wandering days are over.

            Didn't see what Earen wrote, but if anyone knows, could you send it to me, just because I'm curious? I know it was rude and insensitive...that's Earen for you.

            Oh and for the curious, I began playing Skotos in July or August of 2002, in Castle Marrach. My first experience that drew me into the game was the elementals, especially the Undine!
