Ensign First Class Blather / Re: G3 forums stopped working?

Jarno! Greetings brother!

How is it possible that the SHS/G3 servers are regularly down every year for several days?
Here at Pocketplane I don't remember a single day of interrupted service.
This is because either your memory fails at you, or you hadn't been here that often, yes you were here before me, and so we know.... Cause I do remember days that the PPG has been offline.
Also the G3 is not technically offline, see, it's just that the forum database is corrupted, and so you can't access the forums of G3 or the SHS at all.
Still as Asperger as ever! :D

Some things never change. :-yin

PPG doesn't have annual outages. G3/SHS's have occurred every year for...how many? Almost on a schedule, just around this time.

And if we can't access the forums, then that's no fun at all! :P :'(

Well, I seem to recall announced offline periods due to server maintenance but prolonged unscheduled interruptions of service? Hm... My memory does fail me many times so it is very possible I simply don't remember.

I'm waiting for the two sites to come back online, I'm going to open a discussion suggesting it's time migrating the sites to a private company. And, that the Community show some love - translated: money - towards making this happen & maintaining them.

I'll post the link here when done.

Sounds good to me.

I contributed a little in the past and I am ready to do it again.

Cheers!

I hope I was not offensive.
Could you ever be offensive?  :D I think it that was for Sam to put out there.

I had no idea the server could be privately maintained. I hope I was not offensive. I thought we were dealing with some company that couldn't deliver a decent and reliable

I suspect the server is physically located at Liam or Conrad's house, and any time they lose power or internet the forums go down.  Also, based on the number of reported hard drive failures, it wouldn't surprise me if they were trying to use incompatible hardware together (and/or the cheapest off-brand available on the internet).  I don't mean any of that as an insult and I get that maintaining these forums year after year is expensive for an individual, but these are my suspicions nevertheless.

Hi Sam! :)

Oh I had no idea the server could be privately maintained. I hope I was not offensive. I thought we were dealing with some company that couldn't deliver a decent and reliable service.

Quest Pack / Wilbur store closes as soon as it opens
« Last post by DJ on December 03, 2018, 04:19:56 PM »
Hi,

I have the Quest Pack v3.2 installed and upon entering the Bridge District Wilbur approached and started his dialog.  When I asked to see the scimitar a store opened but immediately closed before I could do anything and then Wilbur gave a short 'farewell' message and exited the area.  I see that this bug has been mentioned a few times before by others going back many versions but I don't see that there was ever a resolution or workaround.  Is this fixed in v3.3?  If it is, is it safe to install v3.3 on a game in progress?

Thanks,
DJ

Thanks for your link, Sam. They are really useful and I will take a look at them when I get to it.
