Today, I have created a new image for the Forums' main banner, while also making the Forums more consistent with the home page's layout. It took a little bit as I had to play with the original template/stylesheet used on the Forums already to match my home page's stylesheet (or as good as I could).
Forums Added (During my Bedtime!):
I have been working on the website this (early) morning. I have added a forum system to the website, which will mainly be used for the NS game server and IRC activity. Currently the look is very vanilla to the forum board, but I will change that up later on to reflect the theme I already have incorporated from my main web design. Now, I'm off to bed for four hours until I awake for work, ugh...
Well, I had the NS game server temporarily offline while I was moving apartments, but it is back up! There's a new IP address due to the new location, but other than that it's running like normal.
Yep, the NS Server Went Public!:
Well the Natural Selection gaming server has been public for about a week now! I have done a lot of customized coding behind the scenes to make some changes I felt were needed to some of the most common plugins you run into. I haven't really seen any issues so far from my changes, but I will keep my eyes open.
Also, if you're interested in becoming an administrator on the server (as I currently need a few), just make sure to read my "Gaming" section before applying... Thanks!
NS Server Went Live! (for a Bit):
Today I tested the NS server live for a little while, and it seems to be working quite well. I pulled it down later in the evening as I am re-programming a particular plugin that needs a few more fixes before it is up to my standards. After this, there may be a few this and that type of things needed, but the bulk of everything on the server checks out to be okay (i.e., no major lag issues seen by clients).
Also, I made some changes to the Gaming section of the website, and will continue to revise this as time goes on. Lastly, I registered a channel on Gamesurge.net's IRC servers - which is simply titled #junktext.net - and I envision this to be a meet and greet location for various administrators of the server, and whomever in the public wanted to sit and hang out and talk with us from time to time. We'll see how it all works out, but I'm still in the pre-planning stage at this moment. But at least I have a lot more momentum going for the gaming server and related projects finally! I'm really excited as I have a lot of big ideas to try out :D...
