We appreciate all of your patience the past few days while we have been battling the Shadow’s internet forces. We have done battle with hosting going down from DDOS attacks, unhelpful customer service techs, databases locking themselves up for no reason and lots of other evil foes bent on fighting against our community.
A huge thank you to everyone who has assisted in making sure our community still had places to gather while this was going, and a huge thanks to those who assisted in the technical aspect and spent hours enduring the worst of the Shadow’s torture methods… hold music.
As of now, our site is up and running and everything should be exactly as it was when the forums were locked. The forums have been unlocked and we encourage things to go on as they were.
Some great ideas surfaced on the temp forums about coming together as a community to write a fun in-character reason for the outage. Perhaps a bubble of evil teleported some of us into the woods in the middle of the night while the rest of the Tower slept or something like that. Look for that discussion to be happening soon, and come prepared with fun ideas.
*** It should be noted that as the domain shifts there might be some DNS issues where the site doesn’t load for everyone right away. If it doesn’t load for you, try clearing your cache and reloading often. Also, Control+F5 (for PC users) in most browsers forces the site to load a new, uncached version so try that as well. If that doesn’t solve it you might just need to wait as the DNS info trickles down to local servers.
Also, while our hosting service assures us the outages are behind us, there is always the possibility of some ‘aftershocks’ for lack of a better term. If such an event happens, we will send out email updates and try to be available in the chatroom as much as possible.
Feel free to email the admin account here with any issues and we will try to help you resolve them.
Thanks again for your patience and good attitudes in this time of our site being down. I look forward to many fun writing in the days and months to come!
In the Light,
Durent Antian Asha’man
