Update 9/5/13

Postby rdsrds2120 on Thu Sep 05, 2013 7:28 pm

9/5/13

Good morning, evening, day, or afternoon! The bigWham and blakebowling have some more updates that they've rolled out, and here they are! Nothing too big this week, but it certainly lays the groundwork out for future updates (especially the score recording).

Updates

  • No Fortification Games
  • We will now start recording scores for players at the start and end of a game. This is a partial implemention of Archiving Ranks! Hopefully, this will allow for future updates involving scores, and perhaps more Add-Ons and tools for any developers who are interested in using this feature.
  • Multiple Game Creation: This is currently limited to 5 at a time, but upon further field testing, we may be willing to expand it!
  • We've fixed the "Join Game" links bug for team games and speed games that came with our last update
  • Some back-end tools for Clan Administration!


Policy Changes

From now on, we will be accepting appeals from Permabanned players. This can be accomplished through an E-Ticket. We believe that giving people a second chance from the change in community and rules of old is only fair! We hope that this will allow members who have learned from their mistakes be able to come back and support a Community they love and to make it even more lively!

Thanks folks! That's all we have for this week. Until next time,

--Conquer Club Administration

Shit, does that mean that Max may be back?

We believe that Permabanned players were permabanned for good reasons....

I don't remember "Max." Who's that again?

And the updates seem like great ideas. Thank you!

Also in before the conspiracy around El Jefe and GLG is enhanced with this. It really is the only way GLG could come back, right? :o

Not a subscriber to that but interested to see it start being discussed.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

I'd like to be able to create games with minimum rank requirements. For example, limiting those who can join a game to two ranks below mine and above. This works really well on a chess site I use.

You can. It's called, "private games." :lol:

But I get what you're saying. It would certainly save us from foeing cooks, right?

Private games can be a pain to fill sometimes...I would definitely use a feature that let me set a minimum for public games. It would make getting the teammate medal easier, too.

I really like seeing my new score when I win a game! I imagine though I won't be as excited about it when I lose one, but maybe that won't happen. 8-)

Nice updates! =D>

I have to say, updates 6 days apart from one another is very encouraging for the future of this site. Thanks for the updates bigWham and I hope you keep them coming :)
