Site Updates – July 22
Forumwarz is now running on Phusion Passenger instead of Nginx and Mongrel. The kicker was when I asked Zed Shaw, the creator of Mongrel, about Ruby security vunerabilities at RubyFringe, and he said “Honestly, just use Passenger.”
When the creator of a piece of software (although who admittedly doesn’t maintain it anymore) suggests that I use another piece of software, I listen :)
Haxlrose’s resets are now always free, but limited to once every 4 days.
You can no longer undo a purchase if you have repaired an item since purchasing it. (a.k.a minrepair)
The penalty to your Ego for entering a forum with broken equipment is now related to how many times you take that particular item into combat while broken. In other words, if you unequip a broken item, enter a forum and do something, leave, equip it again and come back in, the penalty will remain until you fix it. (This fixes streaking).
If an account is permabanned, they lose all scoops and cards in their round of Forumwarz Domination.
If someone is temporarily banned, you can see the numbers of hours left on their profile page now instead of just the date.
