"On Monday evening the Planetarion server went down, so too did the jolt web site. This is not the fault of Jolt or Planetarion. We took steps to get the game back up, however it was out of our hands - all has been done to get the Portal and Forums up. The ticker is currently down. We will review the situation on Tuesday at noon (GMT). A roll back is doubtful at this time, however everything will be taking into consideration at the review session. We hope you can enjoy the night off and get some well earned sleep.
The credits bought for the speedround on Saturday 7th August that was unfortunately canceled should all have been refunded."
From the MOTD:
"There have been no ticks since 17.00 GMT yesterday due to network problems with Nildram (Hosting), and some complications afterwards in regards to that event (lack of remote access to the servers).
There was nothing we could do, as we had no more access than any of you did meanwhile.
Ticks resume at 14.00 GMT today
Every planet received 1.000.000 of each resource as compensation for the lack of ticks."
Hopefully with these problems behind us we can get on with round 12 development and preparing the speed game server. The will be further news on these in the near future.
