Linking to DG

When creating your links to DG, make sure you're linking to http://www.darkgrimoire.com and not just darkgrimoire.com. Effectively you'll now be redirected, but the game no longer sits on darkgrimoire.com. If someone visits that URL, they'll be heaved over to http://www.darkgrimoire.com by the serve...

People often view the top 10 lists before joining up

Just thought I'd let you know that one of the patterns I noticed, as I sift through logs during my daily routines, is that people often read the profiles of the top 10 lists before they register. Those of you on the lord/lady list especially are in a position to send a message to potential newbies :)

Entertainingly enough, right after I posted this a spambot decided that it was the perfect time to post... I've implemented a stricter spam checker which would have caught this person. (on the positive side, I have an IP to test this stuff with now) If you get a 403 access denied error stating that ...

Anti-Spam Software

I've made a mod to the forums which will be blocking what it believes are spam bots. This may deny access to some people. If I get reports of this I may turn on additional checks to prevent it, if I don't then I'll leave it as is. DG forums get few spam bots compared to many places, but we still get...

The phpbb version of capcha can be defeated by a surprising number of bots :) From what I saw the original maker of the bot can do this too. If I did turn it on, I'd rewrite it.

FuntKlakow is just a spam bot. It registers on forums that have Visual Confirmation disabled and posts a few messages containing links, that's it. This is not a phpBB specific problem, this would also work on other forum systems that have Visual Confirmation or other spambot protection disabled. ph...

I know that it happens :) Its not a big concern for me though as DG time isn't supposed to be real world time anyway. Most time is actually based off of the DB server which doesn't have the problem, but dawn and marcs are based off web server time.

On a more positive note, a new organization for that screen is on my list of things to do. Unfortunately that list has grown massive in the last 2 months :)

Same error and reputation still exists, its just not shown to you all the time anymore. It may be back visibly in the future as I find a less annoying way to display it.

Currently there is nothing that removes people from your friends list other than you clicking remove. As this code is the same for everyone, it would be a widespread error if it was happening to one person. Unless I can find a large group of people this is also happening to, I have to assume its not...

I am aware of this error, and it will take a moment to get to. Please avoid quickfighting the creatures around the landing while you notice this is going on.

Just to let everyone know, I'm probably not going to look into light issues until early next week or later. I am busy with the installation OF DG onto our new server.

New web server

We just got a beast of a new web server today :) I will be spending quite a bit of time installing and testing the DG system onto it. After that, expect great things. In the meantime there may be slight slowdowns ocassionally as I perform disk intensive syncs between the servers

I hate to admit it, but the Ixon-bot hasn't been as stable as it used to be. Its often taken offline. Pretty soon I may only bring him out with Grom-bot on special occasions. Grom-bot ended up breaking too much stuff, so he needs to be watched closely.

I have installed super high tech anti-spam bot tech. Not really, I just added one small thing I hope will confuse spam bots.
