Ok I'll be using the blog for the updates, and so people can read what I'm doing.

I believe Jeremy was working on some bugfixes.

The first thing I'm doing now that I'm back is installing a better spamfilter. This is to me now the most urgent thing to do.

Why you ask? There are some bugs in the game and we need more features....

Well, not only because I'm annoyed by SPAM, but also because they are posting dangerous harmful stuff now. Not just pornlinks, but even images of underage girls embedded in their post. Imagine a parent checking what their kid(a gewar player) is playing and that be the thing the parent would see.

Also spambots are more agressive than ever. They post all day long, and many times they have multiple posts. One of the latest bots posted 7 posts within a few minutes. A few hours without a mod online could mean all subforums are completely filled with spam.

I've set a target for myself in which atleast every week I want to do 1 thing around here. A bugfix, feature etc. Ofcourse with the holidays there might be a week in which I can't make the target, but that should be an exception.

I'll end this post with: CANEI

    Thx for update!

    But I'm afraid that the blog feature here is one of the most un-noticed features here as there is just a small link to latest blog entry on the bottom of the forum main page (among gewar statistics) and a link to blogs on the menu bar on top of the forum pages.

    However, nice to see that the bots are having a hard time now and gewar can make faster progress again.

    The blog is one of the most un-noticed features, but for me still one of the best forum features . I"m sure it will get better in the future(and as I paid a lot for this blog, it better ).

    I'm still doing the updates in the blog though. Big gamechanges will be posted on the forum ofcourse, but in the blog people can keep up to date all the time. When starting this blog, I already said I'd do it here. So I hope a few remembered that.

    Otherwise eventually they'll find it, or not . Maybe this will put some focus back on the blog

    Whats next for me is totally different to what you'll see fixed next. I only report here what I'm currently doing . Simply because I can ofcourse tell about what other coders are working on, but I feel that would be kinda taking the honor away from them(while they are better programmers) and also putting an unfair pressure on them to get it done quickly. So whenever they want to, they can either blog, post or tell themselves or they can wait till they are finished to publish anything.

    I just do the blog so players know work here has begun again, and ksee the progress of it. And also get an idea of how much time something takes and possible problems I encounter.

    I'm first, as said, going with some easy fixes. Sometimes I'm still used to the old version, so I look in the wrong places. That is because we didn't have the time anymore to make a roadmap, as the old server was dying.

    But for what exactly I'll create another blog. Probably tomorrow. In order to keep it clean.

    So it's a competition now Mr Luke for "most viewed blog". I see how it is, and I do enjoy a challenge. I'll have to step up my efforts in the next coming days...we'll see who the "king of bloggers" is very soon my friend. Haha.

    Darn. I hoped HC wouldn't notice me. I hoped to sneak pass him and take away some of his viewers. Then secretly I would become the biggest blogger around here and everyone would finally respect and praise me!

    Well not gonna happen now
