Hello,

As most of you probably saw, approximately 3 hours ago I closed the forums down to everyone. This was because, we estimate about 8-10 hours ago, all posts that were entered into the database between ~7:30 PM EST last night up until now were lost. We're not exactly sure why, but our current theory is that the host had to restore our server back to 7:30 PM last night, whether it be from an error or intentionally. We determined this because not only was our database missing information, our regular logs were cut out at 7:29:29 PM EST last night up until 4 PM EST today.

Fortunately, we managed to save several things. Ams accessed his cache, which still contained the original data, and we were able to save the posts:

"The Battle of Rendili,"
"The Ravager,"
New post in: "Residential Sector 4, Building 11"


and, the most important save of all, new specifications for battles. Unfortunately, the Battle of Rendili will probably need to be delayed one more day, since we were not able to save important information regarding them, and we'll need to regenerate that.


This is very unfortunate, and it certainly shocked us all when it happened. We'll gonna strive to see that this won't happen again. We'll keep looking into it until we have a definite reason. However, we can say that it could have been much worse, and we're lucky to only have lost a half a day's worth of new posts.

I am sorry to say that any thread that wasn't mentioned above is lossed forever. You'll have to repost it. From now on, I'd recommend (for those of you that don't already) that you always save a backup of your posts on your personal computer.

The data that has been lost also applies to the following things added after 7:30 PM EST on the 7th:


  • Private Messages
  • Posts, replies or edits
  • Signatures and other profile data
  • Usergroup memberships
  • Registrations
  • Password changes


And anything else that was changed after 7:30 PM.

If you have any questions about anything regarding this, please direct them to me and not to anyone else (because they don't understand. Joke)

Thanks,

Please note: I was wrong. After 7:30 PM GMT-5 (EST), everything was lost. I made an interpretation error when I said 10 PM. Please keep this new information in mind.

It's even worse when you're scrambling to save posts... and your cache expires after getting just three. :-\
