November 16, 2022: What? Another has crossed over?!?
Posted By: Specter

It's been a while, hasn't it?

 

That's right, it looks like we will be adding to the archives with the personal scriptures of a new blood who goes by the name of Silver Firestorm! He has earned the trust of Comicality himself so we expect big things from this young one. From what I've read so far, he has something very special to share with us and it appears the elders approve.

 

So sit down and turn off the lights and join us as we gather for the reading. Be sure to reach out to him to let him know what you think, I've made sure his contact info is available. Raiders, steer clear!

October 18, 2022: Fort Family Sites under attack?
Posted By: Specter

Hi everyone,

As some of you may have noticed, we have been experiencing intermittent outages with a small handful of our story siites as recently as earlier today. These outages are a result of a service that we utilize being hacked, which is affecting some functionality of the sites and triggering malware scanners within our service. It is being addressed but as with any attack of this nature, we can't offer a timeframe of when we are "in the clear" as we are simply reacting when trouble pops up as software needs to be developed to address this new issue moving forward.

For now, be sure you keep copies of everything that is newly posted on your site as an attack could force a site to restore from a recent backup, which 'could' reverse the addition of new material. Site owners, you will be contacted if this action is performed on your site. Get in touch with one of us if you have any questions or concerns.

Together we built The Fort Family and together we defend it!

August 5, 2022: Possible Stability Issue
Posted By: Specter

Hi Fort Family!

As many of you may be unaware, on Thursday evening our service provider was one of many who experienced a complete outage that took our entire community down for a short period of time. I won't go into any details but we are not complaining about the speed in which this issue was addressed. The reason for this post is to request that any major site updates or important chapter postings should be postponed to allow for temporary fixes to receive permanent repairs. Where the work continues, I would consider all of our sites "Read Only" for a day or two. I will attempt a current backup as a "Just Incase" but, if we experience DNS issues resulting from the outage, new work could be lost.

So please join us in thanking those involved in such a speedy recovery but to be safe, do some reading and let your readers angrily stare at your newest cliffhanger one or two more days. 🤣
