Two of the games I'm hosting are gone! Is this a glitch, or were they shutdown for some reason?

Which games? When was the last time you saw them on the site?

Paradigm of Empires & Quest of Empires, and about three days ago.I was out of touch for a bit, but they were both still there when I came back, then suddenly they were gone.

From the game log, it appears that you deleted them both on Nov 30th, at 4:35 PM PST. Please note that the basic record for each game is kept after deletion for historical purposes, so you can see the pages for those games, including the final entry under Game Log, here:

http://pbw.spaceempires.net/games/qst_emp

When a game is deleted, the savegame files are deleted from the server. At this point, if you wish to reopen these games, I can manually recreate a folder structure, and you'll have to re-upload the current turn for each game afterwards.

Odd, because I most assuredly didn't personally delete them. I was actually as shocked as anyone else to see them gone.

However, as it turns out most of the players have now moved on and aren't interested in returning to those games, so thanx for the offer but I guess we'll just let whatever happened stand.

Yeah, everyone I've spoken to has lost the fire for those games.

Any chance with your return there might be a few new ones?

Never got an yes or no from Black Knight. Hope that isn't a bad sign, because a few of us are hoping you'll start up another "Empires" game. Maybe a major reboot (wink, wink, nod, nod) ?
