SERVER CRASH = BIG SUCKBALLS

  1. WHAT HAPPENED:
    The server (a machine/computer that runs the website) died. Crashed hardcore. Hostman had to get us a new machine. Then it was discovered the backup was corrupted. Hostman did the best he could to find me a backup, and what we're left with is what I managed to salvage out of the database.

    WHAT'S GONE FOREVER:
    Posts, Private Messages, Social Groups. ALL GONE. I was not able to recover the data from those tables.

    WHAT'S STILL HERE
    Accounts and Forums. I did the best I could to puzzle-piece everything that was unmolested by the crash. Everything else I had to reinstall from scratch.

    WHAT WE DO NOW:
    Start from the beginning. Again. Content from Olf Iwaku in the archive is still there, but everything we've worked so hard on the past five/six months no longer exists. We have no choice but to restart all of our roleplays and projects from scratch again.

    So, the steps:

    1. Report ANY errors, bugs "this looks weird" or "I can't find ___" in the Feedback. I don't care HOW small the problem is. I need to fix it. Lord only knows how many errors might be lurking. c__c

    2. Restart your roleplays how you deem fit.

    3. Restart cults/clubs.

    4. Post, post, post, post.


    You may now commence rioting, ranting, crying, death threats, and rebuilding. x___x
     
  2. I should've known all my allusions to Majora's Mask woudl become Foreshadowing! CURSES!
     
  3. Well I seem to disappear for a week and all hell breaks loose. I guess it means restarting and getting back on track again. Here's to round 2, lets make it better.
     
  4. Wow, I can't believe this happened....
     
  5. Second one here!
     
  6. AND SO IT BEGINS

    LIKE A PHOENIX, WE RISE FROM THE ASHES TO CIRCLEJERK ONCE MORE
     
  7. I'm a little overwhelmed.

    I'll start working on putting up most of our old threads though.
     
  8. Why did you make that in the first place?

    Anyways, I'm glad it's back...

    <3 Diana for being awesome and helping get things back up! You did all you could and that's all we can ask ^^
     
  11. Man, I am so totally bummed about all this. I guess the only thing to do now is to rebuild and move on like this thread is suggesting.

    Just bear in mind that I'm doing this of my own free will, and not just because someone told me to do it.
     
  12. Thank you Diana!!!
