1. Regarding data loss.
By now some of you already have noticed that progres starting from 16feb has been lost. In addition to that, it might take some time for DNS change to propagate. You might try to force your DNS provider to uptade cache by connecting to server.shadowgate.org. By the end of this weekend (23-24 feb) we hope to obtain updated data. However, characters created during the lag time will be restored on per request basis. Asking immortals for exp boons instead is acceptable. Creators may import their changes from the old server by connecting to old.shadowgate.org
New server is located in Dallas. This time we are using VPS node. The move proceeds according to unpublished plan, but the priority is to ensure mud software itself is operational.
Contact Eris, Nuwisha, Lujke or Nienne regarding arising issues.
