It's Motley Monday!

The epic bubble set easter egg has been found. There may be more prizes available in future videos!

Revived Games Forum

20th May 2018, 2:33 PM

There were a number of unused forums related to individual revived games, so I went ahead and condensed them all into one forum with the title "Revived Games". To help differentiate between the games, I've added thread prefixes for that forum.

In other news, there will be a Motley Monday video tomorrow!

I just completed a new highscores page that has been released to the Beta Testers. If all goes well, it will be released soon!

More Spambots

14th May 2018, 3:59 AM

It seems my fixes before didn't quite do the trick. I found a thread on MyBB's support website that detailed methods to combat spambots that are arguably way better than simply just StopForumSpam.

We'll see how it goes. I'm not holding my breath. As always, please report spambots as you see them.

Weekly Update

14th May 2018, 2:35 AM

As I suspected, there weren't really enough updates this week to do a Motley Monday video. So, here's a text update instead!

What's up from our community? The following users have made contributions to the GitHub repo this week:
- Gerrya8 (aka Altex) has made a PR2 Hub navigation menu (currently awaiting a merge from Jiggmin)
- @Antonhs30000 has made guilds on the player search clickable (also awaiting a merge from Jiggmin)

Thanks guys!

I've been extremely busy reworking the entire structure of the repo to aid in organization and code optimization. Jiggmin and I have dubbed it the "Organipocalypse". I just completed part 3 today... and let me tell you, there's a lot of code that was changed. I think there were only a handful of files in the repo that weren't changed in some way. If you're technically inclined, you can follow along with part 3 of the Organipocalypse here.

As promised last week, there will be clickable player names on warning, ban, and promotion text. That pull request was merged; However, there's currently an issue with servers shutting down but not restarting, so it hasn't been able to go live yet (the servers need to restart so new code can be loaded; it doesn't just happen automatically, unfortunately). If you guys want me to talk a little more about the technical side of things with the PR2 servers, let me know.

Anyway, that's it for this week! What do you want to see next? Leave your suggestions in the PR2 Suggestions section and they might become a reality!

Motley Monday???

7th May 2018, 11:49 PM

I made a Motley Monday video. I have no idea if this will be a recurring thing, but I figured that an update should be made explaining some of the recent features that were added.

I'm anticipating receiving some backlash for doing this, which is totally understandable. A lot of people have been asking for Motley Monday videos, and I figure that no matter the source, it's good to have something similar (if not identical) to the real thing. Still, I'd love to hear your feedback about whether or not you would like this to continue.

I'll add: even if I was eligible for monetization (I'm not), I wouldn't enable it (or I'd just send the profit to Jiggmin). Seeing as this is his series and not mine, it wouldn't feel right of me to overstep my bounds in that way.

I noticed there's been a spike in spambot registration lately, so I enabled a service called StopForumSpam to check each registration with their database before allowing the user to register.

I also went through and deleted a bunch of the accounts that seemed like spambots. If I accidentally deleted your account (and you are not a spambot), my sincerest apologies. If you find a spambot, please report them.

PR2: 10th Anniversary Celebration

2nd May 2018, 8:08 AM

I've teased it for a long time! What could it be??? You waited, we delivered. Without further ado, here are the fabled, long-awaited, super exciting festivities!

People who log into any server but the special anniversary server will have:
- 10x EXP bonus!
- 2x greater chance of finding prizes randomly!
- Free party hat (+ epic upgrade) for everyone who logs in!

There will, of course, be the special anniversary server ("Annie"), which is full of cool stuff:
- You're an admin! (the PR2 rules still apply)
- You've been elevated to rank 2008!
- You have all parts + epic upgrades!
Note: These perks will go away once you leave the server.

There are some other things I threw in here and there, including a new chat command. See if you can find it! Smile

Most of all, enjoy this day. It's been a pleasure serving the community and creating the perks for this momentous occasion. Thank you all for your unwavering dedication over the years. You have been a truly integral part of the wild success of PR2 and the community as a whole.

The Dev Log

30th April 2018, 3:28 AM

The Dev Log link at the top of the page now works! It shows the most recent threads from the announcements section that another admin or I mark as Dev Log related. I'll use this for site updates, new game releases, and occasionally PR2 updates.

(Turns out the "soon" in "Coming soon!" was about 5 months. Better late than never, I guess! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

Previously, a number like 1,060,704 would show as 1,60,704 (leading zeros removed).
The numbers now display correctly! YES

(If the numbers are still wonky for you, clear your cache and you should see the updated banner)
