It seems there is a high calibur hacker(s) that are shutting servers down. We are assessing damage, but preliminarily it looks like an effort to just shut the server down. Other servers have recently underwent similar attacks. We have been in touch with these servers to gain a better understanding of how this has happened so we might take preventative measures so this doesn't happen again.

We are sorry the server is down and we will make every effort to restore it as quick as possible. We will update with further information as it comes to us while we work to resolve this.

In the meantime, we'll let you all brainstorm of what we (admins) can do to make it up to you. We will consider all request within reason... even if we have to sell tipsy.

Thank you sticking this out with us.

I'll be willing to mail out 1 orange and 1 walnut to anyone who has felt they have honestly suffered*.





*Proof of said suffering must documented via 3 independent laboratory testing facilities, a note from your mom and a letter from Santa

and I'll be adding something more 'smart' in a bit

I'm restoring about 4 terabytes of data at work, manually having to write DDL - so I'm a little brain-fried

Anyway, I say give out free bonus exp for a week again. That should help people out.

Hmmmm, how about a "Hunt the Haxor" event?

If the GM's can create a few toons with names like "HaxorsSux" and "InNeedOfALife" and run them around the pvp areas, then we could hunt the rascals down and kill them! Would relieve frustrations and they could drop a few goodies before they poofed.

Of course, if you happen to run into a member of the opposing faction you could try to kill them as well. Wink

(Magagement can not be responsible for acts committed during moments of passionate pvp, so please wear protection! Errmmmm conti's, rez runes and PID's ya pervs! I know what you were all thinking. Shame on you!) Very Happy

I Have been on 2 other servers with this same issue and they had given us like 10dp for the lose.. I would like to make that suggestion because some of us like myself cannot get Dp and it would help with linking and so on.. I keep looking to the item mall but for me its just a dream.. Can you maybe consider this please??

OK, ideas for "compensation" (not that we need it)...

While a week of boosted exp would be nice, what of those players already at 60, there is nothing for them, unless they make new toons.

I was thinking along the lines of say one(1) OP hammer per account, OR one (1) GM link per account (player would have to supply items to be linked; ie, sonic lapis & boots, flash lapis & weapon...)
OR could go with say 100 DP (500 dp??) per account (or if can trace multiple accouts to one player than per player) enough so we could get stuff, but not so much as say a $10 donantion.

kind of like drugs, give them a little to get them hooked then they keep buying the stuff...

Well no such thing as GM link here, but i do like the idea of those OPs you're mentioning. Smile Would be nice gift for all, for people who don;t buy DP as well as for Donators.

2) i like the idea of those drugs you're mentioning rofl

Id like to say thank you to the GM's for allowing GODDESS to drop as easy as they do and from freaking rats! Everything you can ever want is easy to get, all the goddess gears, the lapis to link them with and hammers from fortune bags, again all easy to get. I would like be the first to say that I do not need any compensation for the server being down for a little bit while you guys work hard at fixing the problem and would like to thank the GM's for keeping this server up and running and providing the fun for us! Keep up the good work guys your the best!
