Missing Retired Chars (in General)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 1 2010 6:22 PM EDT

It seems that I am missing a couple of my retired storage characters. I should have retired characters called Storage Mod 2 and Storage Mod 3 who have 10 katana on each. But they no long show up under my retired characters.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 2 2010 10:56 PM EDT

i don't see them in the alphabetic list of all characters are you sure you didn't rename them?

AdminNightStrike April 2 2010 11:01 PM EDT

Any idea what their id was?

AdminNightStrike April 2 2010 11:01 PM EDT

Also, do you know when they disappeared?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 2 2010 11:06 PM EDT

They disappeared some time within the last month or so. They would have had 1 minion named 10 katana. As for why they might have disappeared could it have been because they were only 1 mpr characters?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 2 2010 11:09 PM EDT

dude, retired chars don't show up there. To check, look for my Vacation Character in the list.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 2 2010 11:14 PM EDT

hmm, well the page i got there from sure makes it seem like retireds would be listed:

I found your vacation character just fine.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] April 2 2010 11:16 PM EDT

My original CB2 Char disappeared as well the name was "Cawez" :-/

AdminNightStrike April 2 2010 11:17 PM EDT

Only thing I can think is that it was auto-purged for some reason. Backups only go back so far, so I'm not sure. I will do my best to find it.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 2 2010 11:17 PM EDT

My goal was to try and collect a majority of all the katanas in the game.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 2 2010 11:18 PM EDT

You found my Vacation Character in the "All Chars" page Nem? Dude, "he exists but has been retired" says to me that retired chars do not show up.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 2 2010 11:19 PM EDT

If not, you can view a list of all Characters.

that is the part that makes it sound to me like the list of all characters would have him though, it is at the end.

AdminNightStrike April 2 2010 11:21 PM EDT

I grepped the entire database for "Storage Mod". Only references to 2 and 3 were in this thread. I will see how far back backups go.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 2 2010 11:22 PM EDT

There's no retired chars in that link dude, perhaps it needs to be reworded, I just checked for your triviapot.

Demigod April 2 2010 11:24 PM EDT

Would looking at records of Nem's Katana transfers help? If you have the records, you have the recipient characters.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 2 2010 11:24 PM EDT

yep, you are right, i was just stating that the wording sure misled me at the bottom. nice to know that it does not show the retireds.

AdminNightStrike April 2 2010 11:25 PM EDT

Good news, I found it in the oldest backup... so now I can start getting somewhere.

AdminNightStrike April 2 2010 11:25 PM EDT

Correction, I found 3 in the oldest backup... not 2.

AdminNightStrike April 5 2010 11:40 PM EDT

Ok, so apparently we do purge retired parties under certain circumstances. Apparently, you met those circumstances.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 5 2010 11:44 PM EDT

So what happen to be the circumstances? I was hoping to create long term storage characters that could be retrieved for 50k to an admin.

AdminNightStrike April 8 2010 10:40 PM EDT

It looks like the criteria are somewhat confusing:

No references in any transfer logs

retired for 2 months and PR (or MPR, not sure which) < 50k and NW < 100k
retired for 1 month1 and PR (or MPR, not sure which) < 1k and NW < 10k

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 8 2010 10:42 PM EDT

Yeah, at 1 mpr, 77k nw and being retired for about 2 months sounds about right.

TheHatchetman April 9 2010 12:05 AM EDT

I knew i was missing chars! Just wasn't sure enough, nor did i care enough about the ones missing to make a thread about it :P

AdminNightStrike April 28 2010 12:05 PM EDT

This should probably result in purge notifications to the user, much like retire notifications. I'll check on that.
