Official Forumwarz Blog

The official blog for the web game, Forumwarz

A bunch of new stuff!

I’ve been updatting Twitter a lot more lately than the blog, mainly because most updates don’t warrant a full posting. If you have a Twitter account you can follow forumwarz for more frequent updates. Actually, even if you don’t have Twitter you can just subscribe to the RSS feed there and you’ll get all our updates. Here’s some stuff you might have missed:

New Hardware

The site has been pretty laggy lately. We decided to finally do something about it and ordered 3 brand new servers, all of which are faster than our current server. They’re currently being set up by our hosting company and hopefully we’ll be able to switch over pretty soon.

There will be some downtime as we switch over. This is a pretty major change so it might take the larger part of a day to switch over, but it should be worth it for the performance we’ll gain.

Tubmail Updates

I’ve pushed out some early upgrades to Tubmail, which should help if you have many messages in your inbox. It’s now paginated, and you get much more screen real estate to view the list of messages.

ItemBuildr Results

We’ve published a few ItemBuildr items already. You should check out the ItemBuildr section of the site and the store to see the awesome stuff our users have come up with.

What’s next?

Over the next little while I’ll be putting out many little enhancements to existing parts of the site such as Tubmail and Flamebate. If you’ve been part of the community for a while I’m sure you’ll be glad to have some of the new tools we plan to build.

We’re starting to work out a schedule for Episode 3 development, too. It’s a long way away, but we’re getting ready to get the ball rolling on that one too.

  1. hmm nice news, but i have a suggestion. I was thinking about the forum visits and how they reset every 24 hours. Wouldn’t it be more fun if you would divide de 24 hours in 4 pieces and for every 5 hours you would get 1 forum visit. That way you can play in the morning before going to work/school and when you’re back you can play some more.
    Seemed like a good idea to me

  2. skylar there’s nothing stopping you from saving your visits.

    ET good move on updating some of the crappy old things.
    will the emot shortlist update based on the user’s most-used emots? if not that’d be hella cool

  5. Episode 3 is a long way away? Sigh. Looking forward to it, though. I’m almost done Ep. 2; I just have to level up a couple more times before I can tackle the Geronimo forum. I hope we get to find out what happened to the Lonely Gunman!
