    SSTRP Dashboard

    Hi all, I imagine some of the older players are already well familiar with this - but I figured I'd share this with the majority. This is the dashboard that I, the XAs and the admin team use to monitor our general performance (along with the gametracker player count stuff): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sAhmsAuTb-Zyj3b9rR9MYXsTlarfimSGus9QvM_woFk/edit#gid=1255273882

    Operation Lost Colony -- Oct 26-28

    Hi all, We need to delay this campaign due to unforeseen circumstances - we'll keep you informed as to what's happening in the near future. In the interim, it'll be business as usual on server. Xalphox

    Unban Appeal

    Noting the contrition I am willing to be reasonable and offer you a second chance. You can be unbanned. The staff team will consider whether or not to keep you unbanned at the next series of admin meetings.

    Forum & site issues

    Hi all, Quick explanation regarding the site issues: I missed an invoice with the previous host (OVH) which led to the service being suspended - normally this isn't an issue and the service is reinstated instantaneously after the balance is paid (which it promptly was). However unfortunately the system they use that is responsible for suspending and reinstating VPSes went awry and corrupted/catastrophically broke our VPS. The last couple of days has been like pulling teeth as I went back and forth with their support, but finally I gained access to our data yesterday and have since moved us to a new provider. I'm condensing down the process a lot - but TL;DR it transpires copying MySQL databases from one server to another when (1) the source isn't running a mysql server and you have to use the actual files in /var/lib/mysql and (2) you can't actually access /var/lib/mysql is a slow and painful process. At the time of writing, the wiki isn't back yet - there's a few extra steps to getting this up (the WYSIWYG is a separate node service) but I'm hoping to get it up by the end of today, if not early tomorrow. The site will probably be slow for a day or two whilst the cache is built. Some people may still find that the site isn't working for up to 48 hours as the changes to the sstrp.net domain propagates across the internet (https://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/domain-names/dns-nameserver-changes/domain-names-dns-changes), though for most it should be near instantaneous.

    Fleet Event

    EmptyEpsilon - Fleet Event - 2100 BST or 1600 EST
  11. MILKY WAY UNITES AGAINST PROGENITOR THREAT It has emerged today that humanity has an unlikely ally in its offensive against the Progenitor threat: the Arachnid and Skinnie empires. As Federal forces make headway into reclaiming the solar system, the arachnids and the skinnies have launched simultaneous offensives of their own against this intergalactic threat, opening fronts against the Progenitors over a dozen of their own planets, including Klendathu and Tophet. "The Progenitors must surely be feeling the pressure by now", said Sky Marshal Ortiz this morning. "And although we find ourselves in the unusual position of metaphorically fighting shoulder to shoulder with our once sworn enemies, there is nothing usual about the times, and they are absolutely right to recognise that the Progenitors pose a threat not only to just one species, but the entire galaxy." She explained that the Federation under her guidance had made contact with the Arachnids and the Skinnies, coordinating and negotiating to achieve an environment where the Progenitors find themselves fighting on multiple fronts. "Divide and conquer", she said.
