Permalink J2O almost all better January 31st 2008

The issues we’ve had since moving have almost been fixed. Registration and email functions have been resolved as have image related functions.

Remaining issues:
  • A handful of comments in the download section show up as blank. We have determined that this is related to Textile. If possible please do not use strange unicode characters in reviews or wiki entries.
  • Rounding error is occurring on some reviews in the download section.

If you find any issues with the site (J2O, JCF, JDC, etc) please feel free to post here and let us know.


Permalink J2O problems sort of fixed January 27th 2008

Update: Registration has been turned on again. All e-mail problems have been solved

Someone, probably our host, made a major messup by not announcing a major compatibility-breaking upgrade of the server’s software. This caused the problems many of you have experienced all day. There might still be problems around and some posts, downloads, reviews and other contributions may have disappeared due to amateurish mistakes at our host’s end. This has not been confirmed yet.

Thank you Caffne for being helpful by quickly going after the information we needed, so that we could fix our site faster.

Note that there is a high probability of site functions being broken in some places. If you encounter any, please notify us of them (preferrably here, in PM or on the JCF).

Site functions known to be broke:

  • Ratings in the downloads section are messed up (10 for example)
  • Some posts/reviews/wiki entries show up as being empty. Rest assured, they’re not.
  • Zooming in on screenshots is broken

Permalink Picture section updates January 26th 2008

I made a few updates to the picture section today; thumbnails for pictures that are posted from now on will look sharper and large images no longer mess up the page layout. The page layout itself has been changed too.

The pictures section is one of my personal favourites so if you have any suggestions please post them in the comments or send me a PM and I’ll see what I can do :)

Well, seeing as the fifth (and also second to last) round of this season has begun earlier today, I dare say it’s gonna be difficult for everyone to be the Star of this JDC but the question is what does jdc proof , not who is the best player , no jdc proofs who is the smartest

Anyway, just because I have no sane poll question ideas floating around, deal with this (complain and suffer): Jazz Jackrabbit 3 coming in 2008?
