Is the GJOL a FLOP?

A single berserk reached us yesterday, after having come all the way over the mountains from the city of Willow, fourteen hundred miles away. He delivered to Alric a single package the size of a man's fist, wrapped in rags, and refuses to talk with anyone about events in the West.

Define flop. I doubt there's gonna be much activity during the height of dead season untill the first tournament is organized.

It's gonna have a reputation mod soon. Myth emoticons and ranks will be there once I feel like adding them.

I am anti-dac, but not anti-Milk Man. In fact, one could classify me as pro-BOB.

However, even I would agree that POGUE has a POINT!

Grim you must fix your flop. Are you going to complain that the comments in this thread are now SKEWED against your site?

You live in a MIGHTY FINE CLOUD of DENIAL grim. Should I fly up to your MIGHTY FINE CLOUD of DENIAL in my nonexistent IKEA brand (made by the superior Swedes) HOVERBOARD and show you TANGIBLE PROOF of your failure?

Its too early to declare total floppage. If no tournament happens and this place stays dead then it is a flop. If a tournament happens and this place gets used it is not a flop.

Either way my penis flops around when wear loose fitting shorts and jump around.

guest wrote:Want to know why this forum is dead?

• Need an account to post here. Why should I have to create an account to call grim an idiot?

• Couldn't even find link to the forum from the main page. Links to the godhead (whatever the fuck that is) also didn't work. Toxyn really does this for a living?

• When entering my super secret un-crackable password when registering, the url starts with "http://". EVERYONE knows this means that falcon is going to go through the database and find your password, then use it to access your email and bank accounts! It should say "https://". The 's' is crucial.

• Password requirements. Why do you care if I enter a password thats two letters, contain no capital letters, or numbers? Who are you to tell me that it has to include capital letters, be more than 4 characters, and include a number? Fuck you, and fuck this forum!

• Image verification. Sure, you need to prevent spam bots from ruining your gay little forum, but maybe you should hire a new company to make these images. The letters/numbers are unrecognizable from their original shape. Then I got locked out of the registration process because I got a fucking letter wrong?

• No tournament information? How am I supposed to sign up my team for mwc 2k13 if the website isn't even ready?

I have some new things to add over the weekend. For the forum that includes mods for youtube bbcode, rankings/reputation for users and posts. Grim can add custom myth emoticons through the admin if he has the time.

I can host websites for tournaments, maps/plugins, etc. All people need to do is ask.

edit: That's host as in provide some web space, subdomain (e.g. yoursite.thegjol.com), some features (php/python/ruby support + mysql db). If you just need a forum, that's fine too.

2 quick suggestions, Embed a better, mythish font on headings, the current arial looks ugly. &, use a myth background over the solid black.

I haven't actually posted until now, grimcock. guest is right though, the requirements for the password are ridiculous, so ridiculous I'll probably never post here again because I will neither remember the CIA super secret yankeedoodle pw I was required to create nor be motivated to do it all over again. Anyone else excited for season 3 of game of thrones? I sure am.

There's a font size adjuster in the forum at the top right, above he FAQ, Members, etc links. This is the first I've heard of it being a problem for someone. I'll look at making it larger if too many people have trouble with it. If the text is too small for you on the main part of the site, then I can only say you need glasses and need to learn the zoom in/out key combo for your browser.

Here's what I do: save the password in my browser and/or in a text file and/or in my password manager app. Change password X amount of times every month/week/whatever.

Password requirements aren't going to change just because 2-3 people are too lazy to include both numbers and letters in their password.

Are you still having problems with cookies? I sent you a PM a little while back asking if you were still having trouble after fixing an issue with cookies. I've since browsed the site on both a windows machine (running 7) and my macbook pro, using all the popular browsers (w/ no plugins installed) -- never had a problem losing cookie data. What's your setup? Do you have any custom settings for handling cookies, or ad blocking plugins, etc? Even if you are using your browser's private mode, there shouldn't be any problems. I'll do what I can to help, but I've exhausted about every possible cause for your issue on my end.

You really should alternatively allow passphrases though. They are provably more secure than even random digits or common password requirements (mixed case, numbers) which are very easy to brute force with common substitution tables. i.e. almost everyone will just capitalize a first letter, add a symbol or number to the end, replace e->3, i->1, etc. Passphrases are a much better solution.

That's true. However, we're at the mercy of phpBB when it comes to user authentication. Off the top of my head, I think a mod for phpbb would have to be built for something like this.

To those of you having issues with getting logged out: I've changed some settings around and still continue to not be able to re-produce the problem. Please clear out your browser data and try logging back in. Reply back if you are still having issues.

Edit: If you are browsing via a proxy / have a dynamic ip: please let me know this information as well. Anything to help narrow possible causes down is helpful.

Aki -- That may always be the case when rebooting. We have persistant logins ("Remember Me") turned off. Also, check your privacy settings in Firefox, what do you have selected for the 'Keep Cookies Until' option? Are there any other privacy options you have on/off that might cause this (e.g. always browse in private mode, etc)? What version of FFox are you on?

That's controlled thru Session/Cookies of PhpBB admin as I reckon. There is no checkbox of 'keep me signed in' or 'remember me' - only, 'hide my online status'

It's in phpbb's security config. It determines whether or not to allow users persistant logins (the "Remember Me" login option). The hiding status thing is a user configurable item in your user control panel.

ive had to relogin bla bla shit over 10 times since signing on tonight, had to relog a couple more times just to press the submit button here on the fucken screen that does not submit anything i post. i can't even quote whatever you said due to this fruity loops website. in regards to something about a 'remember me' button but why not just turn it on if people are having issues... why have it turned off in the first place?

Image

sometimes after logging in the forum will lose all code and just be basic crap, that is when i think it logs me out instead of keeping me logged in

i use firefox and windows xp

I shall host the "I hate grim" tournament.

It will be a kickball 2 team tournament from the players that turn up every week. The last player picked chooses 1st map, the 2nd to last picks 2nd map etc. You only win the tournament if you aren't called grim.

Also no americans
