Thanks to a server upgrade, Wolfpack’s forums timewarped a month (the most recent backup Ashen Temper had made). Some folks were a bit miffed about this, to which Warden responded:
We don’t consider these forums to be critical applications, and we don’t make any attempt to manage them as such. We don’t backup our voice mail, either, but I’m not going to lose any sleep over it.
To be honest, I’m actually suprised that Ashen even HAD a backup. It certainly wasn’t outlined anywhere as one of his job duties.. or anyone elses, for that matter.
In the midst of UO laying off forum administrators and Brad McQuaid publicly suffering angst about Whineplay, this was… refreshingly honest?
Discuss: I’d make a forum link here, but I don’t consider it a critical application either.
