A huge storm in Northern Virginia knocked out power to over 500,000 households and businesses, including Chicken Smoothie's server. Unfortunately, that caused our database to be corrupted. We were forced to restore from a backup that was taken on Friday morning. This means that absolutely everything that happened on the site on Friday, adoptions, trades, pms, forum posts, pound adoptions, etc, has been lost and we cannot get it back.
Atwood has created a free set of Steampunk items in the store for everybody to adopt as we recover from The Week With No Friday, please grab some! http://www.chickensmoothie.com/store/category.php?id=9
(offer has now expired, sorry!)
We're currently working to bring the site speed back to normal.Oekaki
Drawings made on Friday have not been lost, however we did lose all the information about which person drew what and which forum the drawings were in. Please check out this topic to find your drawings and get them added back to your account, that topic is also the place to ask about adding your Oekaki drawing to your account:viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1260881
If you were in the middle of editing a drawing when the site went down, you can now save the drawing. You should get a message that your drawing has been saved, with a number you need to write down to be able to find your drawing later. Don't forget this number as we need it to find your drawing!Store topups
Store topups made in the last day should now be appearing correctly in your balance, although the store will have forgotten any of the items and pets you purchased in the last day so you'll have the C$ sitting in your account instead.
