    The server crashed or so it said on the main page.

    Must have been a nasty crash. The forums were already down yesterday evening at around 6.00 pm (GMT +1). Let's hope all is well now.

    Allow me to cast a spell upon the board never to crash again. *speaks out some mumbo jumbo* Now for the spell onto the server. *mumbo jumbo* May they fare well and do us good.

    Hello,

    Apart from reporting I did nothing.

    It was a nasty crash indeed. But it seems as if the current database could be reanimated.

    And I thought Tosa traveled by plane to the server and fixed it manually... (that's why it took so long)

    Rude question you don't have to answer, but are there backups kept somewhere independently away from the server just in case it ever reaches the can't be re-animated stage?

    It occurred to me while it was off what a large chunk of the modding resources etc. would be lost if areas like the scriptorium couldn't be re-instated.

    When the boards where back, there was something strange with the Backroom: when I went to the Tavern, the Backroom was there, but under 'last post' it said "never" and under posts/threads it mentionned '0'.

    And now, the Backroom seems to be gone entirely

    Am I the only one who experiences this?

    I confirm.

    I noticed the 'Never' too but content was still present. Now I see no Backroom at all.

    Yup, it said "never" and thread and posts where 0, but when I entered the Backroom, everything seemed 100 % normal.

    Weird stuff going on...

    I hope it has nothing to do with your *mumbo jumbo*

    You were banned from the Back Room, sorry.

    It's only available to Staff now, with Babe pictures (and Hunk pictures for the ladies), secret TW tactics no one ever knew about and several threads which explain the meaning of life, love and wet tissues.

    It was time that we should have renamed our stash as "Backroom"

    So, yesterday I had to find out the forums were down, was completely lost and had to sit around aimlessly for about 10mins until my peanut-sized brain got the idea that I could play Medieval 2 and hope my source of intelligence would be back up afterwards. After that, I had to join the chat to get anything org-related because it was still down. And today I come here, rejoicing with my freshly regained intelligence until I read here and found this:
    Invalid Forum specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator


    So the backroom, the only forum that increases my brainsize at crawling speeds, is gone?

    Well, it's a good thing that the rest works so far.

    Hello,

    It may be related to the crash or coincidence, it seems the door to the Backroom is removed from the database (partly updated during the crash, now it's found to be corrupt and dropped?). I'll make a Backup of the current database first, download that and then see to put the door back. Please report other glitches, a few things may be damaged during the crash.

    I expect the Backroom to be back in 30 minutes.

    Something strange happened a few minutes ago. When I tried to go on the forums, I got a message from my browser (IE), saying that I was not authorised to view the page...

    The boardindex where all forums are listed Andres? The cache was rebuilt to fix the Backroom, that may be a splitsecond glitch?

    I got it when I clicked Kukri's link to the Watchtower thread about the Backroom. Afterwards, I tried a few times to visit the Guild index and I got the same message. After a minute or two, everything was back to normal.

    No. I can exclude the BackroomWT (you renamed that one?), but under Tavern, I can only exclude Frontroom and Gameroom, there's no mention of the Backroom there.
