    It's a fair question to ask why more money is the solution to this.

    Was it the EMU is unable to afford appropriate redundancy? If that's the case, say so.
    Turns out it was a double HDD failure.
    On a testing/Beta system that was promised to be wiped since day one.
    Redundancy and recovery would not be my top priorities either. Even less considering the fact that the product is functionally not where I'd want it to be.

    Rather it happens now and they learn from it. (That is pretty much the reason behind Basilisk) then have it happening on Suncrusher.

    I would imagine a lot of things, development being at the top of the list.
    Actually no, development is free. If you're interested, you can check some of our yearly financial reports, that should give you the good idea what money is being spent on. Which reminds me, I am late with the new one, ill have to post it once we have Bas up and running again.

    I would love to help with the coding part. But the last time I did any was on an atari 800 XL. so I DONT think I qualify unfortunately. *Chuckles*

    I'm not a developer nor will I pretend to be one.

    But I can tell you as a person who has been in many management and problem solving positions over 40 years, that even with a volunteer project there would be expenses.

    **** happens, in our case its a massive amount of ****, but oh well, what's done is done. Instead of throwing blame, which btw will change absolutely nothing, we need to roll up our sleeves and start shoveling it.
    I'm not blaming anyone.

    "While doing a routine backup before the merge one of the HDD's died, unfortunately that was the second one we lost in a matter of weeks."

    This leads me to believe a new HDD could have been purchased prior to this merge but it wasn't. I'm not against the wipe, I'm asking why the HDD drive that died weeks ago was not replaced before arguably the most significant patch to date. Which in my mind is a perfectly reasonable question to ask.

    You'd have to ask the host of the DB. Is that Denver or Dallas? I forget.

    Whatever you guys (devs) find easiest is fine with me. A wipe would be nice to clear out all the abandoned structures.
    Also allow whatever resources I get to suddenly become server best.

    So, it's really sad how many (myself included), hope that the HDD dying doesn't affect the project progress, but does force a wipe. Heh that would be maybe the most exciting SWGEMU update for me in years

    I agree. A wipe on purpose is one thing, a wipe because of mismanaged data is quite another.

    Once is never, twice is always. Is there going to be a next time?

    Same here Dom. Its a game not the end of life. It simply is what it is. So why complain.

    Hindsight is always 20/20, if they were going into this merger thinking something is going to mess up I'm pretty sure they would replace it. But I'm sure they thought it would be a routine merge and all would go well.

    But it didn't and now they get to hear from all you guys, which I'm sure is one thing they don't ever look forward to

    Oh we do. That is always the highlight of any hardware failure.
