OpenSim Creations gone due to backup failure

OpenSim Creations, the top site for OpenSim creators sharing original content under Creative Commons licenses, is gone.

“In the wee hours of October 20, the entire /home folder of this server got wiped,” said owner Vanish Seriath in a post today. “Why, I don’t know. To make matters worse, I don’t have any backups that are anywhere recent, as the backup script seems to have stopped running months ago.”

OpenSim Creations was a go-to site for newcomers to OpenSim, and one of the featured destinations in my Where to get content for OpenSim page, one of the most visited pages on this site.

I am among the many who contributed content to this site, and am extremely sad to see it disappear.

If anyone puts up a similar site, I’d be happy to repost my content.
