Whoa, I just did over 4.5 billion in 2 rounds of ranged damage :P

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 4:29 PM EDT

Nice way for Jon to screw up the MPB's :P

Swagger October 9 2006 4:33 PM EDT

We already screwed up the MPBs, with enormous slayers.

QBBarzooMonkey October 9 2006 4:38 PM EDT

Now, I have -$42mil CB$ on Dogs Of War, and can't fight because I can't heal...
Grrrrr....

TBH never enough gabber October 9 2006 4:39 PM EDT

chuck1234 October 9 2006 4:41 PM EDT

Most Powerful Blow: 117,139,843

I'm already Number 4 in the MPB stats. And all of that using a puny 5x61+21 Sling of Death and some base explosive shots!

Adminedyit October 9 2006 4:45 PM EDT

Something is really wrong with CB EXP: -622,342 ?!?!? how, why

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 4:46 PM EDT

I'm not getting negative XP or expensive healing costs :/

The Death Company [...] October 9 2006 4:48 PM EDT

nor me and my blows arent saved to my most damage bit next to my character (but ive not died yet getting a bit of early pay back lol)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 4:49 PM EDT

lol, I can't hit Miami Vice but he still gets a 30mill blow on me so just getting everyone else :P

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 4:50 PM EDT

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] October 9 2006 4:53 PM EDT

AdminJonathan October 9 2006 4:59 PM EDT

Oops, leave out a sqrt and look what happens.

I'll be restoring from this morning's backup.

Relic October 9 2006 5:01 PM EDT

What about the time/BA lost for NCB and NUB folks?

Adminedyit October 9 2006 5:01 PM EDT

bless you jon :)

bartjan October 9 2006 5:02 PM EDT

Glory: same as with all other users.

miteke [Superheros] October 9 2006 5:04 PM EDT

I'm more worried about transfers that will be reversed.

Colonel Custard October 9 2006 5:05 PM EDT

Most Powerful Blow: 21,079,453
i'm surprised I'm still beating most of my fightlist, considering that a single blow from any one of them should put me a good 70 million HP in the negative.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 5:08 PM EDT

How many more times are we going to see you say 'oops' this month Jon?
That's twice within the space of a week already ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 9 2006 5:24 PM EDT

O_O

So what exactly happened? What did I miss? :/

Relic October 9 2006 5:29 PM EDT

How soon can we expect the restore? Just curious. :)

48Zach October 9 2006 5:35 PM EDT

Glory - That is just what i was about to post..

Also, what will happen at the reset/restore? will all the work that was done today be annihilated?

Godpanda October 9 2006 5:39 PM EDT

CB was pretty hosed earlier. It's fixed now but I have to restore from backup. Most of the site will be down until this is finished.

Message at top of home page

AdminJonathan October 9 2006 5:57 PM EDT

how would a backup from this morning record information about work done later today?

Godpanda October 9 2006 6:09 PM EDT

I would imagine Forums and Help will still be fine though. Right?

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] October 9 2006 6:35 PM EDT

CB without fight and sidebar is not a cb at all!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 9 2006 6:47 PM EDT

I don't feel so bad about playing hookey...

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 6:56 PM EDT

This hookey must be a new fad I haven't caught onto yet ;P

AdminJonathan October 9 2006 7:12 PM EDT

okay, we're mostly back. (still need to pull a few misc things like the transfer logs.) 500+ BA for everyone. Sorry for the confusion!

Relic October 9 2006 7:14 PM EDT

Any chance of a reset of BA purchased for the day? I had just started buying my BA when the site decided to go skiwampus.

QBRanger October 9 2006 7:15 PM EDT

Glory,
Jon stated everyone got over 500 BA just now, more than enough likely for the BA you bought and lost. Cheaper even.

QBsutekh137 October 9 2006 7:16 PM EDT

Not to mention, the rollback would give you your cash back. All you lost were clicks.

Karn [Hell Blenders] October 9 2006 7:17 PM EDT

My NCB bonus disappeared . Is there any way that I can get it back?

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 7:18 PM EDT

I'm in my clan but getting the "Trying to view a clan that doesn't exist doesn't get you a magic cookie" error message from clicking on Clans>My Stats.

AdminJonathan October 9 2006 7:20 PM EDT

you're not in a clan

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 7:22 PM EDT

According to Clan Beer Garden I am and the page leading of Johnny's user page >.<

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 7:23 PM EDT

and the fact I'm getting a 7.5% bonus right now

AdminJonathan October 9 2006 7:24 PM EDT

"(Application decision pending)"

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 7:26 PM EDT

Ok, I misread that, I apologise but it doesn't change that my fight screens show the 7.5% bonus.

AdminJonathan October 9 2006 7:28 PM EDT

that's on my "figure out later tonight" list

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 7:29 PM EDT

Thanks Jon, just thought it was worth mentioning :)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 7:52 PM EDT

Plus I am still gaining clan points for them, I saw myself at 669, fought a few battles and now at 684, so it isn't just the bonus.

The Death Company [...] October 9 2006 8:16 PM EDT

no don't fix it jon we don't wont zog back .. hes made a mad clan insane XD
(and cheers for my sod back was a bit worried :)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 9 2006 8:18 PM EDT

I'm still making you clan points without being there, I have every right to carry on ;P

Silatt October 9 2006 8:37 PM EDT

I'm getting almost the same problem Zog. Flamey made a new clan this weekend and I joined, and well now when I go Clans -> my stats it only gives me the option to join another clan. All the people that were in our clan are now gone even the founder, but yet I'm still getting the clan bonus. Well I tried to join the clan I was in again and got You have been accepted as an applicant to this clan. You will be notified by chatmail if you are accepted. even though nobody was in it.

QBBarzooMonkey October 9 2006 8:37 PM EDT

*Big sigh of relief*

Thanks, Jon! :)

AdminNightStrike October 9 2006 8:55 PM EDT

"okay, we're mostly back. (still need to pull a few misc things like the transfer logs.)"

So does that mean that the $22m I bought today will soon be recredited to my account?

Flamey October 9 2006 9:41 PM EDT

yea, what leo said.

i am the owner of "The Avengers" but i'm not in it, leo is in there with application pending :\

AdminJonathan October 9 2006 9:47 PM EDT

"So does that mean that the $22m I bought today will soon be recredited to my account?"

No, that means the logs from the backup will be brought online.

AdminNightStrike October 9 2006 9:54 PM EDT

Thank goodness for Paypal chargebacks.....

AdminJonathan October 10 2006 12:25 AM EDT

fixed clan stuff

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] October 10 2006 12:31 AM EDT

Getting server error page on clan related pages

AdminJonathan October 10 2006 12:32 AM EDT

also fixed

Flamey October 10 2006 2:37 AM EDT

my clan still has actual members in it, but I am still owner, how do i get back in?

AdminShade October 10 2006 3:03 AM EDT

perhaps wait until cache flush?

Flamey October 10 2006 3:12 AM EDT

that should real, my clan has *no* actual members in it.

thats probably it, shade :)

AdminShade October 10 2006 3:36 AM EDT

should real? or read? :p

Flamey October 10 2006 3:37 AM EDT

hmm, i suck, lol. that should read*

AdminShade October 10 2006 3:40 AM EDT

Most likely after cache flush your clan will be empty and disbanded, if not then you need another divine help from Jon. :)

Flamey October 10 2006 4:26 AM EDT

nope, still screwed.

all my members are not members they are applicants, and are not receiving a bonus. but no one can fight atm, either.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] October 10 2006 6:37 AM EDT

no problem here with clans.
Fast fix Jon. Why did you forgot to go back to your roots?

chuck1234 October 10 2006 6:45 AM EDT

square roots, Henk, there's a subtle but important difference.
