Important Announcement if you use Myth-Weavers!
« on: February 07, 2017, 02:32:44 PM »
Staff has been made aware that sometime very early on February 7th, 2017, Myth-weavers.com suffered a catastrophic data loss.  The most recent backup they were able to restore was from July 25, 2016.  Sheets that were created after that seem to have been lost.  Sheets created before that appear to have been rolled back.  We are aware that many system gamers here use this site for character sheet storage. 

If you have viewed the page recently (i.e., before the data loss, but after the date of the backup, you may be able to retrieve it from your browser's cache-files:  http://www.pcworld.com/article/2927447/how-to-view-recent-webpages-when-youre-offline.html.  Be aware that you will need to disconnect from the Internet to avoid over-writing the cache file.

I seemed to have missed this when I posted it in Off-Topic. All the same a post by a Mod will get more attention.

All the same, this is very bad news. From now on all of my character sheets are gonna be saved in Word Docs and PDFs; can't trust online storage anymore.

I actually lost all 47 of my sheets, irrecoverable since I use C Cleaner

Anyone have a good alternative to MW for sheets hosting ?

I've used Character Sheet in the past. However, that site has a very limited selection of sheets.

Your harddrive or the wiki. You can upload .pdfs and create a page for your char's if you prefer a .doc type file. Plus, linkage in a post to a file on the wiki is dead reliable.

I was on a site called RPGcrossing.com that is very similar to myth weavers.  Actually found Elliquiy through one of the members on there.

I think I had one or two sheets up there from years ago, but it sounds like they might've been removed anyway a while back.

It's a pity they weren't able to back up everyone's sheets further. :(

They are working on it and think they are adding in security features, since I'm disabled they are the best option for me to do sheets for non-wod games. So still need to use them.
