    Naive? I wrote the last database migration, there have been none since. You can look at the code if you wish, it's all spelled out as clearly as possible.

    So how far back would it wipe? I'm not sure when Pub 9 was. I hope you can recover the data! thx!

    As for me, my initial reaction was "Noooooooo" and then my secondary reaction was "Okaaaaaayyyyy!" I'd love to see the server reset and for there to be all new traffic to the server. A lot of the settled areas would be finally be open to the active players, again; enough with these completely-abandoned player cities. Publish 9 will bring a healthy addition of gameplay and things to do and the freshness of a restart is exactly the poetic justice I think this community could use.

    Weed-out the real players and your longtermer's while flushing-out the excess bulk that has run the server down. Open it all up to those of us who check the forums daily for posts like this, rather than keep the unnecessary junk left-behind by those who don't/can't play anymore. Publish 9 and 10 are really where the bulk of players will come in, anyway, so, what's a small hiccup startover to the amount of attraction this, and the next, Publish will garner?

    That's funny: fallacy* creates a false dichotomy without any further information! Perhaps we should trust them and not make a big deal out of it. (:

    I appreciate all the work I'm sure is going into this. Other than debugging issues that could arise with historical data, I don't think anyone would be seriously opposed with a full wipe at this point.

    In terms of actual gameplay (which is second/third priority to testing/development), it would probably do much more to help than hurt. In terms of testing, the major concern are those issues that can arise because of historical data. You wouldn't be able to find those with a new database.

    Good luck, once again I appreciate all of the hard work/free labor.

    Vlada has a detailed bdb dump tattooed much like a tramp stamp but far more exciting.

    As with others - my initial reaction was an immediate loosening of my bowels into my shorts. My second reaction however-ok, much the same. After a bit of thought.....still the same.

    However, roll with the punches. I mean - the project will most likely wipe at the end anyhow. Thanks for the work guys - too bad the merge wasn't smooth but wth, when was a major project on computers ever silky smooth? :/
