A power outage knocked out the server running the VM hosting the TribesNext account and tag systems on Sunday.

While power has been restored, there are issues with the hypervisor, preventing me from bringing up VMs. Investigation ongoing.

Expect a few more days of downtime.

Maybe you should make another shared account like this, it looks like someone already used the first account so maybe there are more people that want to play. You can even name it something like SharedAccount1, SharedAccount2.

Well, you don't have to do it, but it would be a nice thing for people who cannot create accounts. Two more accounts like that would be fine. Just be sure to edit your original thread and add them there when you do make them. I am sure people appreciate that you posted those.

it is not a problem if someone used the first account because we all can  share 1 account at any time or at the same time  ..... i will make 4 accounts or 5 or 7 .... i will make names like these TRIBESNEXT/ARMY TRIBESNEXT\ARMY i liked the names .....
 
 i will see what i can do with the accounts when the account creation becomes online.

 i will edit the thread [if the system became offline and you can't create accounts or retrieve use these] and the thread [i can't log in with my account in tribes2] when i make  accounts.

and thank you all for appreciating what i do for TRIBESNEXT community.

You do plan on getting the account server back up? It's been nearly a month without being able to retrieve my account.

It appears that due to another player trolling while using the public XZXZ account, the admins of the Snap Crackle Pub have banned everyone using the XZXZ account. Which now leaves many people unable to play at all.

What do you want from me? Give me an order about the accounts and I will do it

Yes, alternative accounts would be great, if you can. A troll ruined the XZXZ account and it's been banned at Snap Crackle Pub.

I would discourage the creation and sharing of account credentials in that way, exactly because they get inevitably abused and banned (and then are not useful to anyone). Likewise, I discourage self-replies on the forum, and have pruned some. If you have additional information to add to a post, use the edit button.

No current ETA on bringing the systems back online at this time.

The server was using the Xen hypervisor to run a handful of virtual machines, but the current version of Xen on this particular hardware (pre-production Intel Xeons from a couple generations ago) is crashing on boot. I haven't been able to resolve these issues in the last few weeks, and rolling back to the previous working version isn't an option.

I'm part of the way through migrating the host from Xen to KVM, which is the Linux native hypervisor project. From the project/ecosystem standpoint, KVM looks healthier (thus less likely to have show-stopper issues crop up like this), and I'm hopeful that this transition will be beneficial for long term stability.

But again, no ETA for system bring up at this time.

I am very Sorry because i annoyed you Mr Thyth. please accept my apology.
I want to serve TRIBESNEXT community by my accounts.
What do you suggest on me?
Don't you want me to create 20 accounts?
I see that making 20 accounts or more than that would be great idea for TRIBESNEXT community every one will accept this idea and I am very sure.
Does the admin write the player,s name and then he bans him? or does he click on the player,s name and then he bans him? I am thinking about making hard/weird names.
If i don't make accounts no buddy will be able to play on Snap crackle pub server and that is not good news for TRIBESNEXT community.
Snap crackle pub server is known server and popular.
Making 20 accounts or more than that is the only choice we have.

||TRIBES||NEXT||, maybe you can make individual accounts with password and email them to each person who request. That way the accounts can't be abused by just anyone. I'm sure it's a lot of work but maybe in a short time Thyth will have the server up again. I know I would appreciate it. Thanks
