Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

My attempts to get the Wiki up to date hit some bumps and a brick wall. The bumps are that DLH's two extensions and the armagetronad theme are not yet up to date to the current way these things are registered (should be no problem, but takes time because I need to turn myself from clueless to incom...

Re: Broken links, broken website

I'm still thinking about what needs to be done, to be honest. :) Other than "fix broken links", I mean. The only advantages any CMS gives us is the ability to have multiple authors and the template systems that every one of them has. I don't know of any CMS that fixes link rot. What we "need" right ...

Re: Broken links, broken website

Your answer to a Wordpress suggestion is .NET? You know this isn't a Microsoft shop, right? Heh. I just thought of what I could build with existing licenses. My public-facing webservers for the handful of social enterprises I support all run on .NET infra, thanks to some deals I got from my rep. It...

Re: Broken links, broken website

I'll find out what I can about where the site is and how to get to it. I'm mostly in favor of my own home-grown solution, because I have a pretty good CMS that I built, but it lacks some important features that we need that are nontrivial to write at this time. I'll have a go at finding something ea...

Re: Broken links, broken website

From the perspective of someone who has to maintain the work of others as part of their business, please don't use Wordpress as a solution. There's far too many poorly built bits and pieces, themes break constantly with WP updates, the code maintenance side of things is a shitshow, and there's a wh...

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

Lucifer, if you would like, I have put up a Ladle server. Howerver, there is no way I can be there to manage it if there are problems. If you like, I will add USER_LEVEL [email protected] 0 to my Ladle server so you can help out if there is a problem. By the way, no way is this the last Ladle! I bet t...

Re: Activity? :(

I've been around a bit lately and am having trouble finding a game, but I found a fortress game the other day and somebody there asked about it, too. Nelg was in there at the time. :)

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

Something I'm going to need warning about to make sure I have software available is "Is there going to be voice chat?" If there is, and I need to have it, I'll need to know what software I need to have available for it. Doesn't matter the OS (except it can't be windows or Mac OS X, but if it's windo...

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

I won't provide more specifics because my availability there isn't too good in general. There are too many people interested to take care about everybodies wishes. So I'll make a decision based on the time we settle, just wanted that to be in mind. Yes, you're the one with the objection. Um, might ...

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

Finally, what time are we going to hold the Ladle? I vote for 8PM GMT. This works for me. It'll be 3pm CDT for anybody in the US Central time zone. That's a little late, no? Traditionally the event started around 18:45 GMT. As someone on the US West Coast I don't mind a later start, and we no longe...

Re: What it is it going to take to make a .4 stable release?

I've been able to confirm the sound problem people are complaining about, but I still don't understand why people are blaming the turn sound. There's a mixing artifact of some sort, and I'm pretty sure it's in the engine sound mixing, but it could be the underlying mixing that sdl does with everythi...

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

I'm trying to set up a Ladle server. Which version are we using? .2.8? .4? It's been so long I don't remember. For the server, you should stick with the latest 0.2.8 because it has all the necessary features and is the most stable. Players can choose whichever version they want for clients. I'll be...

I just want to point out that right now, people are registering here and posting a bit faster than I can keep up with approving the posts (in addition to the regular doses of spam we're still getting), so if you're new and haven't reached the 10 post minimum yet, please be patient with me.
