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.

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
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.
