Re: A public letter to Z-man.

Thanks for everything, sorry for my brevity. As such I think that it is time to think in terms of trying to move this project to a new set of hands slowly over time. If you ask me, it can also happen quicker. No, I'm not sick of any of you guys, maybe of the codebase a little (the older bits I have ...

Re: Bring the edit function back for old posts?

I think that is intentional; edits for mere mortals are there to quickly fix mistakes you notice after posting. Changing forum history, even though every regular user edit would still be marked, arbitrarily far back in time may be considered too powerful and therefore only reserved for mods. Just gu...

Re: Upgrading the wiki

I'm bugged, I'm bugged!

Back from vacation, alone for now. The girls only arrive back on Friday, meaning that once I got the house admin stuff out of the way, I should have one or two long evenings available without interruptions. Might work.

Re: To the Owner of Oasis Sumo

No worries about the double post, new users have to have their first couple of posts approved by mods, that seems to be the only reliable way to keep the spambots away.

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

Tried my best to sabotage this, but no luck :( Recordings for 0.2.8.3.4: final_zman_r_vs_red_part1.aarec 6268kb 646s final_zman_r_vs_red_part2.aarec 51028kb 4718s (I'll try to find out what I can about the server crash. Annoyingly, the server does not keep proper logs when things go wrong.) Edit: fo...

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

Edit: obviously if the wiki is fixed before Ladle, we should go back to using that I'd suggest you stick with whatever you find working. I can't give any timeframe on when whatever we do to the wiki will be complete or or any sort of guarantee that it'll work. You don't want to be moving the work o...

Re: Broken links, broken website

So, basically, this is a bull I can just grab by the horns? :) Yep. Since the official sources are on launchpad, how generous can we be handing out access to sourceforge svn repos? That would get us multi-user access pretty easily. Not generous at all, if you ask me. We still need it around in case...

Re: Broken links, broken website

I took a look at GetSimple and, without being too disparaging, it wouldn't be much of an improvement. It seems very over-simplified, and the themeing seems a bit wanting despite being able to delve right into the php (see for yourself: https://s1.demo.opensourcecms.com/s/52). SkyBlue is still in de...

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

How much has mediawiki changed? I made the theme, after all, so I should be able to have a more than passing familiarity with it. :) As far as I can tell, just the registration method. Instead of putting the metadarta into a .php, it now goes into a json file. Same for the extensions. They're here,...

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 incomp...

Re: Broken links, broken website

Umm, the reason the site hasn't been updated much with news is.... there weren't any on the development front? Right, our current setup is this: The complete main site is in sourceforge's SVN here: https://svn.code.sf.net/p/armagetronad/code/www/mainsite The hosting is done by me, it resides on my V...

Re: Fortress_ai branch

It's incomplete and not usable in practice, sorry. Last time I was at it, I was fine-tuning attack or defence selectively, so the AI would take that role and just stick to it no matter what. Also, it hasn't seen a merge from the trunk in forever, last time I tried there were too many conflicts, so I...

Re: Final Ladle (RIP Tron)

I'll see if I can do anything about the wiki, it may have broken during a forced PHP version upgrade on the host. We're a bit busy on the weekend, but Thursday is a holiday, so maybe.

Obviously, I also can have a server up.

Re: Gomor ENTERPIRZE

You said you would stop, so please do. It´s really spammy, this is not your personal blog. I don´t want the odd new potential user to get that impression. Or, beer volcano forbid, follow your example.
