Forums crash

Our forums (the beloved Drunken Lizard Pub) are down. We updated the forum software, ran into some problems, fidgeted with some code… and now it’s a big pile of broken. Last backup was 24 hours ago, so we shouldn’t lose a bunch of posts unless we run into a problem with that.

We will need to reinstall and restore everything. Could take a couple days to get it back to normal. In the mean time, follow our Twitter feed or visit our Facebook page. We’ll also keep you up-to-date right here.

    You do what you have to do big guy. We will be awaiting with baited breath.

    But now you owe us a new screen shot of III ;)

    Thanks for the update. Hope your backup has a backup if needed. Good luck with all that. Been there, done that. And +1, let’s see some Book III teasers!! And email me if you need help with Alpha testing – Been there, done that too.

    You can take your time. There’s plenty of Book 1 and 2 still to play. I’d rather the game be finished and awesome than rushed and not. Avadon 2 is out in a few months, more than enough time before Book 3 ;)

    I was going to post something sarcastic about this whole situation but last time it went over your head Thomas. <_o

    I miss the forums.

  8. I missed them too. Still waiting on a database restoration from Go Daddy.

  9. Kreador Freeaxe says:

    So for now it’s still GoneDaddy?

  10. @Kreador – Yep. As soon as they restore a database (I’ve requested 7-22-13) we should be able to connect to that and bring up the forums. We were told 7-10 days, and it looks like they are going to use that full time allowance.

    We will probably switch to new forum software too, though I don’t know how they handle the transfer of user accounts, ranks, avatars, etc. So until we know for sure, we’ll probably stay with phpBB.

    It’s simple.
    There will be no support for Russian language.

    @zbonek – What has that to do with the forums crash?

    “zbonek says:

  14. Prismatic Maelstrom says:

    Oh shut up zbonek you ignorant f*** and take your s*** elsewhere.

    odd – there is no button to sign up for a login on the new forums so I cannot post, cannot search topics etc…. very frustrating.

    PS – running a macbook pro latest OS.
