Server architecture changes



Server architecture changes
With the constant growth and activity on Reign Of Blood, the guys who run the servers have offered up a 7 page PDF file of different routes we can take with the server structure to make it run much more efficiently. I am going to spend the next few days analysing different methods with them and getting the ball rolling as soon as possible. More info on this when we proceed.

Sorry for any inconvenience with any lag spikes or 503s you're getting. We know when it happens, and doing all we can as fast as we can to get it sorted.


Blog changes
Due to abuse on the page view system on the blogs, blog popularity is now based on the amount of comments a blog has, not its page views. This new comment count now shows on your profiles too. In the blog center, the views are still viewable, although they are for reference only. The blog directory no longer shows private blogs, and the lists now show [friends] or [public] depends on what that blog is set to.

More updates to come.

I wish you would get rid of those underlined word links, that pop up those anoying offers when my mouse accidentally goes over one. This is supposed to be a fun game, not a giant commercial world. I HATE THAT!!!

@Blackwidow... that sounds like a a browser toolbar or something maybe. When I test stuff on Internet Explorer, I get that on sites like Facebook sometimes, I just disable all addons and toolbars. There are no ads like that on RoB, none at all for you, as you're VIP.

Thanks for the reply Ash. I'm using Firefox, but I will try your suggestions. I'm glad it's not a problem with ROB. *smiles*
