PostSubject: Kinda Back   Tue May 29, 2012 9:07 am

First of all, I am back from my travels around Scandinavia (and I have to say that I absolutely loved it. Anyone thinking of travelling there really should!), and I have seen certain comments about rebellion... just know that I am watching you Wink

Now, for the slightly less good news. While I was away the Zatobo and Stormwind (which hosts all the Pendor stuff) websites were hit hard by hackers. I am in the process of fixing this now, but it has meant that I have had to delete all images due to them being destroyed by viruses. As such, please let me know here if you see any images missing (with a link to the location if possible) and I will endeavour to fix those broken links. I back pretty much everything up, so replacing will not be an issue, there was just so much of it, and 90% of it not in use any more so might as well use this as an opportunity to clear our redundant data from the servers.

Finally, the really not good news; I quite honestly do not know how much time I can devote to this RPG any more, you may have noticed my declining involvement before I went away and complete aversion to taking anything else on. Well i'm afraid this is a trend that is likely to continue in the future as I am taking on more responsibilities with Zatobo and writing, while now also looking for a part time job (including a possible move to Sweden) in order to pay for my current life as a game designer. Turns out this career really does not pay well. Unfortunately financial stability > game development > involvement in RPGs and hobbies in general.

This is not to say that I am quitting, as I most certainly am not. I am quite happy to continue to administer these forums, and I still get a kick out of reading up on your exploits when I can and making infrequent decisions of state as king, but I simply do not have the time to continue in my role as the head meta-game honcho (and likely as the leader of the Dragons). I will be speaking to the game masters about passing my responsibilities on to others, and this will likely be a process going on for a while I just believe in open communication and for you all to know what is happening.

Well.. just want to say that we could explain your declining involvement with an event that requires the King's...incapacitation.

just a thought! Wink

Getting the info sheet back online would certainly help.

Sorry was away over the weekend, back now. In the meantime we've been hit once again by hackers, once that is cleared up again I will get the info sheet up.

I think he was talking about Zatobo again, not us.

It was Stormwind (on which I host all Pendor related stuff) that was hit last time, and forced me to delete all files I had on there in order to make sure all the malicious code was purged. Zatobo was an unfortunate casualty of that, as they share the same server Google blacklisted it as a precaution. I have the Pendor website up and running again, but there were so many random files I was hosting for the RP, that it needed a clean out anyway, and I will restore files as and when we realise that they are missing.

This time we've been blacklisted, though I must admit I have no idea why as the stuff they are claiming is infected with nastiness isn't anything to do with us, and their web tools say that we're clean, think it's one of my business partner's websites as he manages the hosting of several different sites, and they are all affected when one gets hit. Very, very annoying!
