  1. This is a fairly resource-intensive feature which was turned off during the show and which we have kept turned off since then. We are looking at doing an upgrade soon of the forum software and may enable it after that to see if it still affects performance.
  2. This topic is for reposting upcoming events from the in-game Events calendar. The referenced "game time" is GMT-6 / CST.
  3. This topic is for new Wiki of Ice and Fire editors to introduce themselves to the rest of the community.
  4. Apologies, we forgot to post about this. Gosu is unfortunately going to be shutting down, so we have removed the code from the site. For the time being, it works directly from their site, but no idea for how long.
  5. Hi! Great idea introducing yourself, but I would actually suggest you do the same over on the game itself. You could use the Recruiting board. Not all players check the web forums, unfortunately.
  6. That the message regarding ad blockers shows up is intended. However, it should not be showing up if you have whitelisted the site as the first poster reported. If you haven't whitelisted the site, then it will show up.
  7. Thank you for the report, that is a weird problem.
  8. Exhausted after this weekend, dressage competition and dog show. https://t.co/Eu5Qo9Dg8O

  9. EDITED: This thread has been superseded by a new method of requesting an account, via a forum that only users who are qualified to receive an account can see. The minimum qualification to be able to edit the wiki is to have 5 or more posts on the forum.
  10. Sorry, no it isn't. It blew up badly last time we tried to install it. We may try again once we have completed some other upgrades, but they are taking a while.
  11. I don't think that is ad related, I think it is because Chrome has started insisting that all sites use https:// instead of http://. We haven't been able to sort out how to do that on the forum.

  13. Looks like the CSS got screwed up and had a bad cache stuck for a while.

  15. Since traffic is much lower when the show isn't on, we reduce the number of servers for the website during this period. This means we can sometimes run into issues with how much the site can handle. Additionally, we have some configuration issues related to memory right now that we have not been able to solve and that has been the cause of the recent crashes.
  16. @Fani_Karamanou Thanks! We likely need a good dose of that, no matter how much we train. He has his own ideas. ;)

  17. We will try the forum route first and then, if there's interest, maybe open up other avenues for feedback as well (such as a meeting). As we wrote on the game, with the 10-year anniversary for the game just around the corner, we'd like to take some time to solicit player input on what we should focus on going forward. Activity has been rather low lately and we need to find ways to work with the resources that we have, which unfortunately includes being rather short on staff. That makes it all the more important that we focus our efforts on worthwhile projects for improving the game and the player experience. One example would be the project we're currently working on, which is Influence & Renown. We hope that having those numbers finalised and fully working will have an impact on the social roleplay.
  18. We'd like to invite anyone who isn't a current player but who has been curious about Blood of Dragons MUSH to ask whatever questions they might have about the game in this thread. Additionally, if you have considered joining the game, but had some issues with something, feel free to bring those up here too. We can't guarantee any changes -- some things are the way they are by design -- but we're always working to improve things as much as we can.
  19. Hi James, It depends on what software you are using to connect to the MUSH. If you just used the webclient, I don't think there is much that can be done. But clients such as MUSHclient do offer options for altering background and text colours. And no, you don't need to learn every command. You can look things up as you need them.
  20. Those are features of the software that we have no control over, I am afraid.
  21. Anyone viewing Westeros.org on a really, really large screen? Anything go weird with the new design? When does text get too wide? I can only test up to 1920 wide, so anything beyond that is of interest.

  23. Excellent news! So excited. https://t.co/dFhFqni61e

  24. Yes, they will remain turned off. They are too resource intensive even when we don't have the show traffic to deal with.
  25. Unfortunately, we have an issue with the wiki login. It used to be handled by a plugin that gave you access to the wiki once you had a forum account, but this plugin was never updated for the new version of the forum. We have been pursuing other solutions but not been able to solve the issue.
