## I was grouped with Kornax and Grumsh, and we lost around 1.350.000 xp :P
## And no reimbs of course.


2001/10/06 16:49, Beruleth:   
Well, some people (me too) lost alot exp and eq, some didn't die due this for real. Was mistake, ok. Past is past. Good Ilie explained atleast. But why can't people almost never get reimbs?! This is what bothers me:-p Ok, can't brove what ya did last 4 hours and some may cheat then but stil... Hmm, any ideas?

2001/10/06 16:57, Pestilence: 
Well, nothing comes to mind. The way things are, at least we know what to expect.

2001/10/06 17:06, Ytinas: 
Problem with reimbs here as i see it, is xp and trophy bit complex issue :P.

2001/10/06 17:31, Pestilence: 
Yea, it's hardly doable.

2001/10/06 17:59, Fredde: 
huge ilie! =)

2001/10/06 18:58, Wojtek: 
Hmmm u use powwow 0.8.5? 1.2.5 is out :)

2001/10/06 19:54, Wroom: 
3,5 hours of powerxping from lvl 14 to 15.5?:p comf dude...in more than 1 way.

2001/10/06 20:06, Sel: 
I fakking lost 4 levels! A thorn, a bow and 25 arrows... you think
YOU lost alot?! Pfff.

2001/10/06 20:28, Cele: 
Ehee.. we all lost something. Fist time in my mume career seen total backup:) Gave me feeling of playing PC game, with save/loads. Ah, I recall once Dain crashed mud, cause he did mv on huor's player file instead of cp...

2001/10/06 22:30, Wojtek: 
Be happy they let u play a nice game with payment. I think they do their jobs quite well, errare humanum est. So dont worry cause u can redo anything in another 4h rl. Btw its nice to see an admin have a 4h backup, I backup only once a day.!!

2001/10/06 22:53, Porien: 
Wojtek, who said they make backup every 4 hours ? May be we were lucky with only 4 hours and they make backup once a week!

2001/10/07 03:21, Vaire: 
I worked for 3 hours on a zone today before the 'restored from backup.' It was odd because I hadn't worked on this zone in a good while so maybe it was just the cosmic order of the world biting me in the ass and it hit all of you :) Really it's to be commended that at least such backup's exist and were so current can you imagine a player-wipe (really?) Anyway sucks that I have to go re-plan and populate a zone. I have to get a printer one of these days...or save more logs better organized to remember what the hell I've done and haven't done. :)
Also if you had fun during those power-xp hours it's not a total loss :P

2001/10/07 13:37, Pestilence: 
I hadn't been xping for 3.5 hours, I joined the 2 others just over an hour before the incident. They lost a lot more than I did. And for the record, this wasn't a whinelog, that is, I'm not complaining about MUME in general or the management or whatever. I'm quite happy about the way things are. It was just an unfortunate incident, and Ilie's narrate was quite funny, so I wanted to save it for posterity. I am well aware that reimbs are impossible in these circumstances, and -very- well aware of the fact that MUME is free for players and runs on a great deal of voluntary work by people that deserve praise for what they do. Like I said, this was just funny. And yes, I do use an old version of powwow. :-)

2001/10/07 13:37, Pestilence: 
*comf* Vaire. :-(

2001/10/07 13:39, Mammoth:   
It ate my hewer! And ilie (note the small first letter) didn't even
apologise!

I declare war on him and all his followers.

2001/10/07 16:06, Rogon:   
You have him worried now, mammoth.

2001/10/08 08:00, Devastator: 
Well it also could be u died a fullset and mobdied after but got it all back :P bad luck for ya:)

2001/10/09 05:08, Vecna:   
Hah! I lost nothing! ehehe

2001/10/09 06:02, Johannes: 
*Comfort* - man, I would have whined :-(

Shite happens though, it's not like he did it on purpose I bet, eheheh *poke-ti-poke* Ilie.

 Commenting Rules:
  • we do not tolerate fake or anonymous character names!
  • use a valid MUME character name
  • offensive (sexual, racist, personal, ...) remarks will be punished
  • do not post information, which you got from MUME immortal-boards
  • comment in English only!


  • Character-Name:   anonymous-flag (don't link profile)  


    Advice:  Let the above textbox do the line-wrapping and do only use Return/Newline to end or start a new paragraph. That way your comments will look nice! If you use long text-strings without spaces ( >50 characters), they will be cut to a decent size and info will get lost.
