Accounts gone due to server crash - Characters are okay
« on: December 04, 2016, 11:44:17 AM »
Hey Boarcrafters,

The server crashed pretty hard last night and unfortunately the accounts table in the database got corrupted. I tried all the different methods for repairing it that I could find but with no success. Everyone will therefore need to make new accounts on the website.

All characters are still intact and you can get them reconnected to your new account by sending me a private message on Discord with:

  • New account name
  • Character names
  • Character levels
  • Character classes
  • Character races

My Discord: SpiritBoar#5982
Boarcraft Discord: https://discord.gg/awtd7Vd

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Before launch I will make sure to have automatic backups of the database set up. :)

Some things, such as works created in a restricted or rules-driven space (15x15 grid, beaded pins, icons, etc) would have a problem, since there is only a certain (finite) amount of ways to do something in that, and it wouldn't necessarily be uncommon or unreasonable for https://www.aussiewriter.com/ someone else to come up with it. Your protection would best be from the trademark office, if you really did come up with something unique (document it with the copyright, then file for a trademark). No guarantee you'd get it, trademarks have really tough rules, but it might be your only way to protect something "uniquely" yours in some situations.
