Haven is still down. sad.gif panic.gif

Sere and I have already started talking about getting a more stable environment. Free hosting is just too unreliable.
Callidus Thorn
Seems like whatever happened was pretty major, looking at that support link.
Kane
Hardware failure followed by possible data loss as they rebuild the database. This one is not happy about it. Especially if we lose content. There was a lot of stories on there, and I hope folks backed them up.
Callidus Thorn
I was thinking more of the fact that it had taken out multiple servers. Would love to know what happened, just for the sake of curiosity.
Kane
Seems like they should look at moving to a cloud or web based server.
Callidus Thorn
Have they had other problems since you started Haven?
Kane
Occasion down time, but usually no more than an hour or so.
Callidus Thorn
Sounds like they weren't doing too badly then.
Kane
Looking at the support site, it seems they had a different hardware issue on Sep. 27th. I remember that one. About 2 hours of outage.
Callidus Thorn
Well, they've definitely lowered the bar with this problem, whatever it was that happened.

I hope we don't lose too much from over there.
Kane
My thoughts as well. I have a feeling most folks back up their stories, which would be the biggest loss.

Absolutely.

That said, I do find the thought that it might have affected the DiD competition amusing. Just because it would mean being resurrected laugh.gif
Kane
Ugh. That would suck.
Callidus Thorn
You able to chat to the others as well? I'm guessing they're equally pissed at this.
Kane
Sere and I have been chatting since yesterday. I PM'ed all the regulars through Bethsoft, but that's the best I can do.

We're seriously looking at a new host. Sere has a spare domain she can set up with a phpBB skin if we got that route.
Callidus Thorn
I'd have thought you'd wait to see how much was actually lost before considering a new host.
Kane
The potential of the loss is what has us worried. If it happened once, it will happen again, and it's quite possible that they lost a good bit, based on how long it's taking them to restore.
Callidus Thorn
I can't help thinking you're overreacting just a little bit here. I mean; "If it happened once, it will happen again"? You don't have anywhere near enough information to justify that statement.

Oh, they've posted a new update in the support thread, by the way.
Kane
I can't stress the loss of data enough, Thorny. The entire reason Haven was created was so that our story writers could flex their creative freedom without the restrictions of Bethsoft. If everyone's stories are dumped due to a host hiccup, that's a major deal.

Plus, if we could easily move to a more stable domain/forum, then why not? It will be put before the community before it happens, but it never hurts to plan ahead.

Based on that latest update from Zb, the prognosis looks good on the data. smile.gif

I can't stress the loss of data enough, Thorny. The entire reason Haven was created was so that out story writers could flex their creative freedom with the restrictions of Bethsoft. If everyone's stories are dumped due to a host hiccup, that's a major deal.


A while back we had a fairly major issue, both harddrives in the server failed. I don't recall much, if anything, being lost. A few lingering oddities as a result, mind you, but nothing major seemed to come of it.

And who at Haven is just writing their stories straight onto the forum? My guess: No-one.

Plus, if we could easily move to a more stable domain/forum, then why not? It will be put before the community before it happens, but it never hurts to plan ahead.


If you'd mentioned that you were considering it before this incident, I might have figured that was your thinking. From what you've posted so far, it comes off as a panicked, knee-jerk reaction to a single incident.

We've mentioned it before, but just as a thought for the future. We technically are breaking Zb's rules with some of our content, which was the original reason to plan out something else.

Really?

Fair enough.

Though I'm guessing I'm gonna lose my green glow. And I never even saw it! rollinglaugh.gif

I tend to agree with Thorny on this issue. Wait and see if there is a problem (with lost material; the outage is its own problem) before making up your mind and moving.

Oh well that is a different story all together then!

Yeah, sexual content and nudity is not allowed under their terms and conditions. wink.gif We have both in the form of steamy romance chapters, and naked character screens. whistling.gif That's why you can't even view the story sections unless you are a full member.

By the way, I'm stealing that whistle emoji. wink.gif

I had wondered about that before I joined, but never got around to asking laugh.gif

Though I think you're understating things. Sah's new video thread springs to mind, as does at least one chapter of one of the stories(I won't name which) that went beyond "steamy romance" rollinglaugh.gif

Oh, yes, can't forget about Sah's videos. And I approved those, lol. wink.gif

Off the top of my head, Grits, Andra, and Res have some "steamy" scenes. And then there are some non TES related scenes in the Story Stories thead, too.

So I've got plenty more to look forward to then! laugh.gif

And you really do love that whistle emoticon, don't you? rollinglaugh.gif

Edit: Fluffed an emoticon. *facepalms*
