UPDATE: The forums have been fully repaired. Go check ’em out yourself!

UPDATE: I have spoken with Jason, and lemme just give some details.

Jason had to take down the forums to repair the database of posts, which was corrupted from yesterdays server meltdown

He thought it was fully repaired, but it turns out he was wrong.  ZU should be up in about an hour or two, so please be patient everybody. Jason also wants it made clear that this has nothing to do with the new server, but as a result of problems with the old one! The new server should begin to prevent these kinds of things from happening.

You can always join the chat room, with the forum link down, because the forum is a mess

A link for the chat can be found here

Just click the drop down box and select #zelda

With Jason not around, I figured I should at least tell our viewers what is going on, even though not many of you, who frequent the forum, read the main site.

Basically The forums are kind of glitched right now, I don’t know if it had something to do with the new server or not, as I have not been able to contact Jason. (shhhh I’m posting this without consent I may get shot, so don’t tell on me 😛 )

Pretty much you can not post, but you can create new topics, a really weird bug. I am posting here to ask members to not abuse any of it, to make clean up easier.

So yea, here is to hoping the forums are up and running soon.

  • I can’t wait until we get this new server thing behind us.

  • Light Knight

    Man, you admins and mods and webmasters must be getting quite the headache.

    Keep up the good work though!

  • Lefty beat me to the announcement post punch 🙁

  • Triforce of the Gods

    The abusing thing won’t be a problem because the forms were closed until the problem is fixed anyway.

    Good luck guys. Try not to strain yourselves.

  • Wolfen

    Sure Jason. Spoil our fun. :<

    But its really weird that we were able t post comments on walls but not make posts on the forums.

  • Derek

    Posts and user comments are on two different tables. Posts, the big, big table of information in the database is the one that is currently corrupted/hurting.

    As said, this is from the meltdown of the old server, that has corrupted the database a bit, but not from the new server. Hence was the reason that the forums were down but the site wasn’t time from time on the old server.

  • Link the 13th

    So the old server melted down and it has nothing to do with the new one. Is this true or just a cover up?

  • Derek

    We’re not the government. We don’t really need to give reasons, but we do cause it is morally correct.
