    Default Travian super outage v2.0

    No quite as long as the one we experienced something like 3 or 4 years ago, but sheesh!

    Oh! Discuss.

    Luckily I had the NY State fair to distract me. Otherwise the shakes were manageable.
    Wonder if the mods noticed it was down for maintenance?

    There are a lot of posts missing from when I was here a few days ago. Did they get lost or did they get deleted?

    I actually didn't, but I was away from the internet for different reasons. Found out when I got back online to apologize.

    It looks like a forum wide roll back to an earlier state.

    Not as bad as the one that went on for like 2 or 3 weeks. I'm surprised I came back after that one. This one was nothing.

    Probably had to restore an old backup, tons of posts are missing and I had an old PM showing as unread in my inbox...

    *nod* The forums were restored to the last full backup Travian had for each domain's forum.

    Okay, I will buy the they were restored to the last full back up, but things were also edited and or removed. I know I had some posts disappear where I said I was skeptical that TG would actually listen to our suggestions, but then went on to make suggestions, while posts that were to the best of my recollection posted after my posts are still there, this happened both here and on .com. This really only brings one question to mind, why can't TG accept any critism? Don't they realize that people who take the time to complain actually want things to get better?

    Okay TG, I give up, I will not try to improve things anymore, I will play as long as I can stand it and then just leave. It is clear you do not care for my custom.

    Fighter, Bella; don't tell me to write directly to TG, they do not reply, they do not care. I have tried writing to them directly in the past for other things, for clarification...at best they have pooh poohed my concerns, but then at least they replied, at worst they have simply disregarded my inquiry, not even a note that the email had been received.

    Another odd thing in the roll back.....my rep was edited...weird.

    But meh....it all doesn't matter.

    Huh. I was just on my Settings page, and noticed that it no longer lists the ban I got a few years ago. Do those notices disappear eventually, or was that lost in the outage?

    Simply not true. Backups had to be used because there were concerns about the integrity of the latest DB version, so some posts/threads/PMs were lost as a part of that. Other than that, the stock backup was used - nobody went through however many million posts all of the forums combined represents when they were reloading them.

    I question the integrity of TG, also, how dare you finally show up to argue with Flossie when you spend most of your time ghosting! You sir, are a scoundrel and the Germans are preheating an oven.

    Yeah, a one-day ban like two years ago. Inappropriate picture, not surprisingly.

    You are right: there would be no need to "go through" every post on record when you're looking to disappear only recent posts.

    Or simply trace specific individuals... it's easy to find specific posts if you know who wrote them.

    Your settings page only shows 5 infractions, if you've gotten warnings or bans since then it probably got pushed off. Check the infractions tab on your profile.

    Huh. I could have sworn that it was still listed below the warnings prior to the rollback, but maybe I'm mistaken.
