 DS9 Pip-licious?
Posted by Kuro-chan - July 1st, 2014 - 03:54
So, all the Split Rank systems that use DS9 pips are now using the 2014 edition pips. (and the affected ones should have sample images to depict I was in there, making changes). If I missed any, give me a shout.
We are the Kuro. Lower your firewalls and surrender your sites.
 And for something related to movies I could not stand...

Two TOS Reboot sets are up. They are more or less the same, but one uses the older integrated setup (backgrounds and ranks as a single image) and one uses the split setup (Where ranks and backgrounds are their own images).

So... In case everyone thinks I uploaded the same thing twice, the answer is no. They are not... quite.

Changes include (Beside creating a split version):
  • Updating and improving the background designs
  • Adding six more background colours
  • Adding one more enlisted ranks
  • Making the enlisted ranks smaller so they are less imposing, compared to the officer ranks

On another note: I am starting to fiddle around with the setup of my page. I find it's becoming a bit... annoying to scroll down the increasingly-long list to find a specific set. So, I plan to do something about that. Therefore, I leave a heads up: If something is broken, check again in a few minutes. It may only be temporary. If it is longer than temporary, odds are I will hear about it.
More ranksets?! SERIOUSLY?!
 And for something TNG-related.

For the first time uploaded to the site, TNG Seasons 1-2 is available as a split rankset.

Thanks to Kevin W. for the donation that got this project off the ground.

 Okay, first round of bug fixes done.

Hi. Kuro here.

Since I made some drastic changes to the source code on the site, it does not surprise that there were a few things that required attention:
  • There were some problems with the login settings; mixed messages and stuff. That is fixed. The whole method of how someone logs into the change was changed, so...
  • Thanks to Emily from irc.darkmyst.org/SimTrekChat for spotting a bug in my archives pages. The page was not loading up properly.
  • Fixed an absurd number of ridiculous bugs in the Profile page
  • Found an issue with how ID numbers were carried around while logged in. This messed up accessing the Profile page and handling of the ranks when submitting something.
More debugging?! ...Great...
 A little user downtime, then back up again.

Kuro-chan here. Phase 1 and 2 of what I wanted to do on this site have been completed. It may not 'look' like I have done much, but I overhauled most of the guts which make this site work (or not work, depending on your perspective).
  • Updated how the database is pulled so when my provider updates to PHP 5.5, the site won't crash.
  • Added 2 additional security features to improve the quality of user accounts and reduce compromises.
  • Added a means to reset the password on your own, without requiring or involving Kuro's assistance. If there is any confusion on how to reset a password, feel free to contact me, although I am no longer in a position to make the changes myself.
That said, if you find glitches, give me a call so I can take care of them!
I... am working on the siiiiiiiite...
 Oh, before I forget...

Thank you to Kevin W. for donating to Kuro-RPG again. Courtesy of his donations, I went and got the recent Movie Era work done.
Nothing like a fun reminder...
 More Pip stuff.

Originally, today was going to be one submission. Instead, it is three:

Movie Era, Pips Only
Movie Era, Straps & Pips
Movie Era, Sleeves & Pips

They are all done to the style of the proposed NOVA 3 simm style, so the pips and backgrounds are split (Where that applies).

Also, can someone with a gmail account send me an email, in the hopes I can reply to them? I am starting to wonder if gmail accounts are not getting replies from me...
More ranksets?! SERIOUSLY?!
 Fixed a Rankset Glitch.

Hi. Me again.

I fixed a glitch I found on the last set I put up, the DS9 Thin Style, Split Ranks edition.

There is another rankset ready to go, but the person who paid for it to happen gets first dibs on it, so it will not be posted on here, yet.

To the very small handful of mothers who browse this site, anyway.

Actually, someone posted an argument on how I am supposedly the mother of this site... While the website does ask for money, at least it does not rummage through the liquor cabinet, clean out the fridge, take the last slice of pie, steal the car to go joyriding or have to bail it out of jail!

... Thank goodness for small mercies...
More ranksets?! SERIOUSLY?!
