    It has died, and is now reborn. It will soon be at full power.

    In other words, the Kinmunity database was lost, and a January backup had to be loaded.

    What I find irritating but rather amusing as well is I have to start fresh becaus the manual backup was done on the 11th, and I joined the 12th... oh well.

    Ahh I'm so sad we all had to rejoin if we were newer, but ah well. I'm glad it's back!

    I forgot just how much I'd added to my profile since that date. And although I'm kinda sad all the groups have completely gone, it's a new way to improve what we once had

    We will rebuild I guess. It is all we can do at this point.

    @FaerieForged Oh no! XD

    I dropped off the rest of the Library articles for Shiro, so at least that can get filled back in. Too bad about the Blogs, though. But I do have a lot of the same stories I was talking about on mine saved up from conversations off-site, plus some new content I can add as well.

    Sad to see so much content lost. Also sad to see that I'm back to my old inaccurate title, and I lost the nifty "Elder" badge. But I'm glad we got things up and running so quickly.

    Edit: Also it doesn't look like my Library article made it, but I can always re-submit if need be.

    Glad to see this place back up even if we've lost some content.
    Thank you admins for working hard to rebuild.

    @FaerieForged : I'm feelin' it.

    I guess there's not much use going on about my "contributions" here. I think made jokes, mostly. Oops.
    However, might I propose a digital phoenix mascot? Because that's rad as hell.

    My poor account... Oh well, at least the website is up and running now, and we didn't lose everything. Thanks to @Shiro and all the others who worked (and are still working) to restore everything.

    Anyone know if there's a pale background theme available at the moment?
    My eyes find it hard t deal with a dark background so I'm struggling to read anything, which means I'm finding it hard to see if there's an option for it or not. :p
    If not that's ok, I know a lot of things need to be added back in.

    Hm, try checking the Preferences option on your account, I think there's a way to change the site theme on there

    EDIT: Ignore that, I can't find it either

    Something for the re-awakened site's suggestion box?

    Maybe, but currently Shiro said on Discord that the theme can't be changed yet. Sorry @Velvet Wings, I tried

    Ah, that's good to know. I figured there was a reason the theme was like this, but wasn't sure.

    Ah, that's ok. Thanks Mirath. I know site themes probably aren't the most important thing at the moment, I can wait.

    Kind of annoyed that I had to rejoin, but it can't be helped, I guess. Glad to see the site is back!

    Do you have any idea how to prevent something like this from happening again? (Other than creating a backup every week)

    From what I hear it was an error during an OS update that caused it, which (as far as I know) just happens sometimes when you update software and there's too big of a hiccup.
    A weekly or bi-weekly backup stored on a different system seems like a no-brainer but I'm sure that has costs of its own. (How big, data wise, is Kinmunity anyways?)
