Nogard has been offline since January 4th due to a database hardware failure that our host experienced. Unfortunately all permissions for the server were stored on this database and there are no backups. I have spent a few days manually recreating all ranks. Thankfully, using some Python and AutoHotKey scripts, I was able to salvage all of the permissions using past logs stored for the server.
Here is what was lost and then re-created:
We're extremely sorry about this inconvenience, but now Nogard is back to where it was before and no data was lost. We are now back up as of January 11th after 7 days of downtime. We plan on moving hosts soon and of course taking backups of the database. In the meantime, if your prison rank has been incorrectly set or if you feel you are missing something, please let us know!
On a lighter note, continue reading for some news about what's new lately.
The Parkour server is under construction and will be completed sometime this month. Keep an eye out for future announcements, and check out the screenshots of the Parkour spawn built by BucketMuncher above and below! Read more about what's coming for Parkour here: https://nogard.us/forum/topic/topic/9-parkour-information/
Want to help build some courses for the Parkour server? Please feel free to do so! If a course you build is accepted, you will receive rewards on the server and your course will be featured on the server with your name on it as the creator. There will be a dedicated creative plot world on the Parkour server for building maps that will be accessible with a specific rank. More details about this are coming soon.
You can now purchase a Custom Tag Voucher from our Network Store for $2.99. Purchasing this item will give you a voucher to create a custom tag that you can use on any server on the Nogard network. Click here to view: https://store.nogard.us/category/159755
In addition to this new item in the store, there is now a way to contribute to pay for the server's monthly bill directly instead of donating. These contributions are much appreciated, as Nogard costs roughly $32 per month before taxes.
