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.

  • Staffers?

    Can we get any staffers in game? I've been suffering from a bug for 3 days now basically leaving me out of the only thing there is to do in game right now.

    I wasn't about during the weekend, until today, so didn't see any assists in regard to bugs. Log in during the evening this week if you can, and I'll take a look at it.

    I'll peek around while you are offline, but can't promise I'll find a fix right away.

    As for the 'only thing in the game to do right now' ... I understand the game can be slow when we have low player turnout, but assuming the issue hasn't crippled your character (and hopefully it hasn't), I'm not quite sure how it stops you from doing normal activities.

    The area where you are seeing that bug hasn't even been open for close to a year now.

    Edit: I think I see what the problem might be, but sort of need you around to fully test things. So just log in one night and yell at me and I think I can put in a fix.
