SERVER CRASH = BIG SUCKBALLS

  • Welcome back, Iwaku! While we are still working on the site to get it back into shape, we've come back online so you can get back to doing what you love. Check out this announcement for more details.

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

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.

I'm fine with doing both, but it depends on the situation and how comfortable I am with the RP, plot, or subject matter of the RP.
Favorite Genres
Scifi, Fantasy, Modern, Magical, Horror, Noir, apocalyptic, Grimdark, yaoi, yuri, anything really.

Uhhh..... That's hard.

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
I am in the middle between passive and aggressive. But I prefer to plan things out with my fellow RPers so I don't mess them up. Although I do keep plot twists under wraps. I believe planning things out helps make for better posts so I do it often.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy, sci-fi, post apocalyptic, parody.
Genre You DON'T Like
No SMUT EVER. Not big on modern RPs, not a fan of Mass RPs due to past experiences. I may make exceptions though if an RP is particularly interesting. I will NEVER get involved with anything like yaoi or furry FYI, those I do not make exceptions with. Also not too keen on perverse RPs.

Oy, oh well. I'm saving my bios and completed RP posts on my computer and email from now on, I'd like to encourage everyone to do the same..

Meh, did have some partial back up for ICSYL2 though so...But RaC, GG and Final Fantasy Universe. Oy..Gonna have to restart.. But oh well..I don't think it'll be all that hard since most of these Rps just got started anyhow.

Moderate to aggressive.

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
Genre You DON'T Like
I'll try just about anything. I'm not overly into RPs where the prime focus is romance. I'm not too hyped on fan based anime rp either.

I'm pretty new to the site, but I'm very glad its back. As I only had a few posts I can't begin to imagine what some people have lost. Anyway thank you to everyone who got it back up so fast and THANK GOD that damn Bitch Box character I made, Bringer of salt, is dead forever.Amen.

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.
