The Great Sync Loop of March 2019.

So we had a small bug introduce itself as part of some shared IRE code for the current promotion that caused the Sync to loop many, many, MANY times. This looping did things like deleting a bunch of players for inactivity (since each time it looped, it would increment the days since they'd logged on), rotating all the org logs, and a bunch of other fun things that happen at the Sync every day. We've rolled back to a couple of minutes before the Sync, so that everyone's characters are back and functional, and everything is mostly right in the world. Naturally, we've fixed the cause of this, and added additional safeguards so that it doesn't happen again.
There was one notable casualty in this situation, org logs. As the rotation happened, it purged all the logs from the system. You'll find that faction and clan logs for the past x days are blank. Sorry about this, I know it makes housekeeping a pain in the backside.
If you have any questions or concerns about anything arising from this incident, please don't hesitate to let me know.
