Developer response from delosford

Of course. I'm not really even bothering to fix stuff at this point. I'll fix whatever's left in the backup that's chosen to be restored. On that note, check forums.cloutiverse.net in the polls section for the poll that'll decide that.

Under rating threshold (show) Also Q, I know you have a lot on your plate right now (to put it very mildly), but kiran's lobbyist (which he got from Greydon) Cyril Figgus went clicking around in places where he wasn't supposed to go it seems and got himself stuck after entering the terminal to Israel. Can you get him out, or provide a way for him to get himself out?

Developer response from delosford

Yeah um, he reported that... but you can walk in and out of all the terminals just fine.

Under rating threshold (show) The game's been down for half a day already T_T. CACloud isn't even doing anything.

Developer response from delosford

Yeah, they've decided to tell me that they aren't going to host the game anymore since apparently that's easier than compensating for their gross negligence. I told them that if they didn't actually go through with what they'd already said they'd do in order to try and fix the problem (which they have admitted they caused): I would simply file a lawsuit for the damages caused in terms of revenue/player retention. Apparently Kongregate's advertising costs a few thousand dollars if you pay for it, so it seems there's even a reliable way to come up with a defensible figure for base damages.

Under rating threshold (show) So since the stalkers are now more directly attacking your server, in addition to the evidence you've found on the subject, are you able to bring this to the FBI or Police and have them arrested for continuously attacking and interfering with your game?

+ - !

(5)

Developer response from delosford

Have lots of people who play the game contact the FBI about it and provide their thoughts/evidence. Don't spam them waiting for a response, just tell them what you know and your take on things with the server. CACloud is apparently owned by an American company, so it's likely they have a bit more legal authority. Otherwise you might have to talk to the Canadian intelligence services/police or the CIA I suppose. Part of the problem is that the stalkers bribe/blackmail/etc. a lot of public officials and law enforcement agents as far as I can tell.

Loopholes? Lawl. There aren't any loopholes. The stalkers had the hosting company pre-install a rootkit on the server, and they've been keylogging my machine for passwords.

Under rating threshold (show) Q, I think the stalkers are reading Kong chat. All the targets of several of the ridiculous spammed subterfuge messages are people who frequent it. Somnus = Furoa, Atrophias = 12kop1, Fake Hero = TheDova, Norma Jayden = Ucalino, and so on.

I'm quite sure they are. They probably read all of everyone's mail in the game. The lengths they go to are really kind of ridiculous.

Under rating threshold (show) to be honest, Delos, It's significantly more likely that the stalkers that have it out for Clout infiltrated your hosting company, and have been "tripping" over the cables that link your server to the world than our ISPs messing with traffic heading to/from your server and your server alone.

Oh, yeah, I doubt it's your ISPs causing it. But they can look into it.
