Optional Realities & Project Redshift

    They are running phpBB, so a grand number of things may have happened.

    Did this die or something?

    Nope. It didn't die. There were just some serious server-side issues that took the site down for a few days. OR decided to use that as an excuse to take some time to re-engineer the website and forums. It should be back up this weekend.

    Not that I have any vested interest in OR, but from one server admin to another, that seems like a silly thing to do when you could have just shown a maintenance page or a simple placeholder page announcing your upgrades to the general public. phpBB in fact has a maintenance mode built in.

    Edit: Also, development instances. Have you heard of them? (Said all server admins everywhere)

    There's another thing that seems to bridge Mud and Mush:

    I don't always test my code, but when I do I do it in production.

    Some sort of notification notice/update on the OR address about what is happening would be useful whenever technically possible.

  • I'll forward your thoughts to Jeshin, as I'm not a server admin myself.

    Hey,

    Sorry for being personally absent from this community for so long. Real life tied with difficulties in Project Redshift's development a long with a complete loss of our webserver kind of hit me pretty hard. Even though that has only been occurring in the last 1.5 weeks leading up to it wasn't much better.

    I have slept, we have worked, our direction has been updated.

    http://optionalrealities.com/ --- new website and new mission statement
    http://optionalrealities.com/forums/ --- new forum and we really liked nodebb so we used it.

    We also... you knew took a very hard look at our mission statement and our goals and we updated those too. Probably a bigger deal >_> and more likely to be something this community is going to appreciate.

    TLDR - All text-based games including MU*, Interactive fiction, roguelikes, and other unspecified types have equal ability to advertise and equal tools to do so on the site with no subforums existing anymore except by "type"

    Hey.

    I don't know if this got lost in the shuffle (shuffle, noise, vitriol), but I never minded the idea of anyone saying, "Hey, this thing is awesome and we want to feature it." I think it's a great community-building idea, and I hope you keep doing it. Even if people disagree, they will know what you think is good.

    The big explosion over ideas was because of the prerequisites.

    That is all.


 

Looks like your connection to MU Soapbox was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
