    So a couple questions about Skullheart because it was awesome while it was up.

    Is Skullheart an official forum, like the one that was mentioned as the forum on skullgirls.com that was coming soon? If not who's leading it and when will it be back up?

    Master Chibi, have you thought about a forum at Canopy Kingdom?

    If you are a member of the fighting game community and you aren't play Skullgirls you're doing it wrong.

    Skullheart being 'offline' is killing me.

    the wait is pretty tough.
    Is Skullheart an official forum, like the one that was mentioned as the forum on skullgirls.com that was coming soon? If not who's leading it and when will it be back up?

    i think it started as an unofficial fan forum, but it got pretty popular.

    i have no idea if it has been changed to anything official though.

    i think they actually made it the official forum. Because I can recall Mike claiming that he was gonna make an official forum, then somebody got permission to make one in his stead, resulting in Skullheart

    Skullheart is the official forum, we just never got around to making an announcement because it was around that time that the IGG campaign started.
    If not who's leading it and when will it be back up?

    That would be me. The site will be up as soon as possible. I am waiting on an email from Autumn's tech guy so that we can make the transition to the new server, and there's nothing I can do until I get those credentials. Hopefully you won't need to wait much longer.

    Let's place bets: Squigly in game first or Skullheart back up first? My money's on Squig.
    I'll take that bet.

    i hope we see skullheart back soon.

    it was a nice place.

    also, it'll be all the same forums and accounts so we don't need to register again, right?

    I went to skullheart to get a quick link to the IRC, and going to skullheart redirected me to godaddy.com where it told me the domain name was available. What the fuck man. Also i couldnt find our IRC on mibbit either. I could only find the skullbats one which nobody ever uses.

    EDIT: Anybody got a link to the IRC? It's my final resort when boredom hits, and I'm out of games to play right now.

    Awesome!!! But I'm sad to see the domain go. Skullheart was such a good name for it...

    We'll be moving back to using skullheart.com as the primary domain soon (as soon as I can muster up the courage to edit the server's .htaccess), but I didn't see the point in making people wait any longer to get back on the site.

    Oh, excellent. XthAtGAm3RGuYX got me all worried.

    Not that I'm complaining or anything, I'm just happy that skullheart is back up, but images currently aren't uploading. Just thought I should report that bug.

    the site doesn't seem to load for me.

    Unfortunately yes, but this time it's not skullheart's fault. The skullgirls.com website and one of Autumn's other games on the same server aren't loading either.

    When Skullheart is up, Shoryuken Skullgirls Forum is dead. when it's down, it actually comes back to life.

    Is there anything we can do so that, when it's back up, this stops happening? This sucks worse than.. this sucks worse than something that sucks really bad.

    It sucks worse than getting a metal splinter under a finger nail. And trust me, those are a bitch

    Sorry guys. Again, this time there's nothing I can personally do to speed up the fix.

    While the forums are down, how about we discuss the game's more pressing problems.
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    If there's anything we do best, it's breaking games and then making everyone suffer with all the cheapness.

    Probably not anytime soon, because it would require another set of software entirely. If there's a lot fo support I can look into it, though.

    Looks like they just forgot to renew their domain. It should be back up in a day or so, I'd say.

    I posted on the SG twitter awhile back, ask your web host if they keep backups. You may get lucky and be able to restore all the data before everything was lost (many webhosts do daily or weekly backups).

    It's a guy from the webhost that we're waiting to hear back from.

    So, apparently there has been an update on Skullheart saying that it will be up again soon.

    Thoughts?

    That update was on the 18th. In 2 days that'll be a week.

    My thoughts: "soon"
  • deice-deice- kimchi yokatta darou Joined: Posts: 596
    Soo, site down half the time, and didn't keep backups? This is why dislike fan forums, at least larger sites like SRK are professionally maintained and have resources to run it.

    (I'm just salty because I was wanting new info and all the good info was on skullheart, and now I gotta fish google cache / archive for it)

    Believe me, if I had my way we would have been back up loooong ago. Problem is, the people who I'm waiting on don't seem to be as worried about month-long downtime as I am.

    I can sympathize, you aren't getting paid to do it so you have to take what hardware and services you get. And that means its not always the most reliable :(

    Without any idea what's the holdup, have you tried calling them instead of sending mails? Things tend to get done faster that way.

    And please, next time do setup an offsite backup so if there's an extended downtime, you can just fallback to another host temporarily. You can put an automated backup in e.g. Amazon S3, the price is very cheap.

    Saw that there were a few new posts on this thread, it made me thought SH was back. :l Disappointment is awesome.

    Anyway I've got a hilarious (or at least I think so) avatar for when SH is back.
