New voting system idea & plasma special to run to the end of the month.

Due to people not getting paid till the end of the month or the 1st of Sep (had several BLs) I've decided to leave the special on until the 1st September.

On another note, thank you for all the happy birthday comments :) Even though it's not until tomorrow lol!

Anyway, I was thinking about how to solve the voting problem we're having. I am not a fan of taking the bonus away from you guys or reducing it, I'm generally not a nasty person. But I have thought of another idea that might *help*.

Having one vote site appear at a time. So the first one would come up, you would click the vote link, it'll open in a new window you would then complete the vote (thus adding your turns). You close the window, which brings you back to RoB. Where it will refresh 5-10 seconds after you clicked the link to bring up the next one. (refreshing it manually will not speed it up because I'll put a PHP timer on it). And so on and so on. Yes it'll take longer, but you either sit there bored and wait or just vote. If you don't like it, you don't get the turns. That's totally up to you :) But those turns are for voting for RoB not just free for nothing.

To sum it up, the people who ACTUALLY spend the time and voting will NOT have a problem with this because the time it takes would be no different whatsoever. The people who WILL complain about this are the people who DONT complete their vote people they just click it to get the turns. So with that in mind, i'd like you feedback on it =D

I will enjoy my birthday, and thanks again for all the birthday wishes.
Have a good weekend =]

My 21st birthday Celebration on RoB & Plasma special!

My 21st birthday on Sunday the 30th will be celebrated on RoB all weekend! Throughout the weekend I'll be hiding plasma on some pages, not going to give any clues though :) They will randomly pop-up so it's not really worth going around looking for them, just play a lot and you might get lucky ;)

As well as this I have launched a plasma special which lasts until Monday.

Let the celebration begin :)

Have a good drunk weekend, I know i will =]


Edit : Plasma offer ends monday 31st :)

TURN VOTING BONUS NOTICE! & plasma special coming up!

Over the last month or so RoB has dropped a bit on the voting sites. This is not because of people quitting the game, overall activity has actually increased. So this means people are getting lazy and not completing their vote.

I give the turn bonus IN RETURN for you completing the vote. If things don't change by this time next month (i.e. people don't start completing the vote) i will REDUCE the amount of turns you get from it. For over 130 turns for 30 seconds of your time going through entering captchas and confirming buttons etc is a damn good deal. If people want to abuse it, then I'll reduce the reward. Simple.

&& on better news, it's my 21st birthday this weekend, so to kick off the weekend celebration there will be random stuff happening and a plasma special all weekend. More info on that when friday comes ;)

Have fun

The new server HAS been installed. There was only about an hour downtime, going to keep an eye on the speed etc, but it should be faster. Going to start some more advertising now to get some fresh blood in. Anyone notice any faster speeds or is it about the same?

Comment this :)


Thank you to everyone who applied for QOTD staff. There were SO many entries, over 150. I could not narrow it down because its just too many. So i went through narrowed it down to 50 & then let fate decide. So your new QOTD staff are:

Duke Danse Macambre (85239)
Arhat (146154)
Goddess Peitho Bluemoon (164737)
Nammers (150132)

Congrats you 3 :) Of course this is a trial period, we'll see how you get on over the next few weeks and make any changes if needed.

If you 3 are reading this (which you should :P) send me a blood letter on how to set things up.

Thanks again for everyone wanting to help, your time will come =]

Is Reign Of Blood shutting down?

No it is NOT. I am getting some blood letters asking me if it's being shut down. I don't know who it's coming from but it is NOT true.

If Reign Of Blood is going to be shut down i WILL POST IT HERE or SOMEWHERE on the site. Do not believe pathetic rumours. It's never going to happen ;)

In other news for those who have yet to realise I've added the entry link on all RoB pages, I'm giving you all a chance to enter each week. If it does well enough I could run it daily so more money is won, i will also run competitions that if a RoB user wins they could win some in game goodies too, thanks for your support with that!

PS - No matter what people say, the site cannot get sued and shut down because a member does not get on with the staff :)

Keep on laughing :)

My new site, win free cash $$$. Would like your support :)

It's a little site i just made, very basically, you choose a number, enter your email and submit! Then each week the pot of money is won by one person. It's no scam (I don't scam people), the money comes from the ads on the site.

So by increasing the money to win, tell your friends (option to do so afterward).

You can view how it works in full detail on the about page.

You can enter each week and someone WILL win the pot. Then the pot is reset.

The more people who enter = the more people on the site = more money from the ads = more money in the pot = more money for you to win.

It's pretty simple, and would like your simple support to use it each week (so bookmark it =]). We don't sell your email, or spam it or anything like that to make money. I don't run scam websites like that its totally legit, you have my word :)

As i said view the site for more info, and if I can get this to take off and get people using it each week I'll run RoB related competition with it as well.

So please support it and check it and let me know what you think :)


As well as this site and hales bytes, I'll add a link section on the site somewhere to remind people of what i'm up to. Thank you for your support, and I hope you all take part :)

Last call for the shop voucher plasma special.

First off thank you to everyone supporting me and my Hales Bytes website, it's getting quite a few people a day on it which is good :)

I will be taking the competition off on the 16th not the 15th because it's my brothers 18th birthday party on the 15th so if I'm still alive on the Sunday after I will take it off, and then and release another little site I've been working on today (that's how small) that i want your support with also. I will then also give you an update on RoB stuff and my personal upcoming events and how everything is going to work over the August period.

Until Sunday, enjoy ;)

My personal site just launched, i want your support :)

I have today launched my personal site, which has the same name of my company which ReignOfBlood runs off, HALES BYTES.

It's basically a place where I will daily post interesting technology/internet news, game news, game reviews, gadget reviews etc etc. Don't worry though, it will not interfere with the time i spend on RoB ;)

I would appreciate your support in my growing an active user base there. All i ask is you add it to the social networks you use (go onto the site and look at the right hand side of the page) and check back to the site each day.

Thanks to all that support me :)

QOTD staff wanted.

Hello again,
To keep RoB the best service going in online gaming, one feature that i made, the QOTD, is not being posted on time & sometimes not at all. That is nobodies fault, it's not any of the staffs actual job to sort that out.

So i want to change that, I would like 2 or 3 people who can :

- Post a QOTD within 1 hour (preferably right after) the midnight reset.
- Post a range of easy to hard questions that are not easily Google-able.
- Who will not fight with each other who posts the QOTD when, discuss with the other chosen QOTD staff and agree who posts when, and let the other know if you cant one day etc etc you get the idea.

Of course people over my side of the world (England), midnight can be a bit silly to stay up and post the QOTD, but main reset in America for example is around 6-7pm so this will be more suited to them.

You must over 1 month old as well. To apply simply send a blood letter to the RoB-Bot (2) with the subject "QOTD STAFF". (If you do not know how to do that then you are not right for the job). All non serious applications will be ignored. Tell me why i should hire you over everyone else. Any questions feel free to comment this blog and I'll reply, do not send any questions to my blood letters, it would be easier for me to just come on here and reply to comments instead of sorting through more blood letters.

Good luck & thanks!
