Network Services Downtime
There was a prolonged (approximately twelve hour) services downtime today. As much as I'd love to be able to offer up a wild technical explanation for what went wrong, the truth is unfortunately simple: At its root, this was failed communication within the Darkmyst staff team.
On behalf of Darkmyst staff, I'd like to sincerely apologise for the inconvenience. While we're all on a volunteer roster, none of us consider this an acceptable length of downtime for something as central and critical as services. We're presently working on a postmortem and will link it up in another news article once it's complete.
