... emailed BeyondThePale (via nwvault email feature ofc) but no response.


I have often found that email feature unreliable. Better to email btp directly from your email client I have found.

Good Luck '<img'>

               Maximus got back to me..

Things should be working properly now. If you get any more issues please let us know.


As shia said, emailing them directly from your e-mail client is best, the Vault e-mail appears to often be unreliable.

Problems with the nwvault.ign.com have been persistent for quite some time now...

Errors with login are rather frequent, so to alleviate the issues I have to reset my password (a lot)..

Content unable to be uploaded &/or updated even was an issues that is becoming reoccurring, and is even now as I write, is currently an issues...

There are quite a few issues with the nwvault that the admin's need to address, but more importantly, I'd like to see the content that is ON the nwvault remain uncorrupted.  People are starting to complain that content is becoming lost, corrupted, or unopenable...

I'm suspecting they are having read/write issues to their storage mediums, whatever those may be...

It may be time to transfer data, while you still can, to a new storage medium to preserve data...

I couldn't imagine trying to restore all that data from backups, whoosh!


Not to mention the amount of spambots ruining the comments. The Vault is getting on a bit, computers and stuff like that tend to get iffy as they get older.

               I believe the Vault have been in the process of moving their data server, which may include all the IGN sites, not just the Vault. This you can imagine, is a huge task and there are bound to be some issues while it's all getting sorted out. I wouldn't worry about the loss of info/files as I'm pretty sure the Vault always have a current backup of everything NWVault wise.

Give them time folks, the Vault has never really let us down in all these years, we need to show a little faith in their continuing support '<img'>

Hello QSW.

Is this from the horses mouth, so to speak. I have had trouble with BTP's email account so I was getting quite concerned that there might be more serious problems.

There is a thread on the NWN2 board on this so I will link them back to here.

               Hey PJ,

BTP put a sticky up on the Vault yesterday I believe stating that he was having some e-mail problems, but hoped to get it sorted out asap. As for the moving to a new data server, yes that's from Maximus himself. I'd mailed him to alert him to the fact that people were having trouble with downloads and mail not being answered. In our last mail a few days ago, he hoped that everything should be working properly by now.

If you find that it is not and you also don't get a response to an e-mail within 24 hours, (please use your own e-mail client to send the mail) post here and I'll contact him on an alternative mail I have. '<img'>

I've been trying email now since the 27th of last month or so, i've emailed Maximus and BTP both are being delayed for 2-5 days and then fail to go through. I've tried this on multiple email clients and from multiple computers at home, work, and phone and get the same results. They really need to get with thier provider and fix the email issues, its been quite some time now and I'm sure people are being off put and we are losing content and people who would otherwise use the vault. Or at the very least post a secondary valid working email address as a temporary solution.

               Birdman076 - I will mail Maximus and copy/paste your text above so he can see the extent of the problem. I'll let you know as soon as I get a reply.

               NWVault has essentially been dead since August 15th (the last time anything was added), with the exception of what I assume are automated posts of the lists for voting.

As an in-demand site, this is a huge amount of down time unless there isn't something else going on.

               I agree. It's really a downer, especially when some have new content to upload. Visiting daily is becoming less and less of a priority.

FP!

               Some of us over at NWN2 are getting a little antsy.  We're worried this may be hearalding the closing of the vault.  Can anyone speak to that?  It's been "broken" for almost a month.

               We have had some technical difficulties as the data centers have been transferred. Currently I am unable to get e-mail, and unable to process most of the entries supplied by the community.

The techs are working on the issue. I am unfortunately in a holding pattern until this is resolved. I appreciate everyone's patience, and I will do my best to get everything smoothed out once I am able.
