    Assuming 'poly takes the same approach outlined by vyeh in regards to CGN having backups, then 'poly should be able to rebuild their website with the last backup they made, and any loss of SMACX data should be minimal.

    This is the part that indeed concerns me most. The loss of all that content would be a CATASTROPHE. 'poly has the most SMACX content anywhere, yes?

    However, there has been some life in the ACS AC forum lately -a bit busier than here, in fact- and some actual efforts to build on same and make it last have been initiated, so I'm concerned as a direct Greater SMACX Community issue, too. I mean, I sure hope this is temporary and I do care about the people.

    That must have been before my time. Can you point some of the highlights out to me?

    Not at the moment, no.

    Am I wrong, then? I was thinking of the totality of the archives, posts and attachments going back longer than anywhere else, but I haven't kept track of what was and was not eventually restored - I do know that I used to have half again more posts, but I couldn't say what 2 or 3 hundred disappeared, as everything I ever went looking for eventually turned up. I may just have gotten a PCR at some point, for all I know. ;)

    Nowhere has all that impressive a set of SMACX Downloads, if that's what you're thinking of, and the best set may be at WPC - I spent years on that...

    It would not be the first time a gaming site got hacked. Sucks for the admin since he will now have to probably fax IDs to whatever hosting company to prove it is him/her.

    Then, the admin can see what damage is done.

    Who knows, maybe they hacked off some gamer who has a black belt in hack fu and keeps shrines to Roze and Linus Torvolds in the computer room.

    :lol:

    Seriously, though, as previously discussed with Buncle, my plan is to post the first scenario of this series at 'poly, and it does happen to be a Data Angels scenario: this wouldn't be considered "too soon", would it?

    Also, here is the changelog for this scenario. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Just to give a status update on this project: the first scenario is complete and is currently planned to be released on October 4th. The next scenario for this project has been kicked off and I've finished the first edit of the map, and am currently writing the draft for the backstory.
