Website Updates and News
 And now, more up-posting of ranksets.

Hopefully, in an attempt to keep some people happy, I have posted a "NOVA 3" version of the DS9 Thin-style ranksets.

Linky: Click Here

...It looks like that set is more popular than expected...?

On another note: I am trying to figure out exactly "What" people want from this site. To paraphrase, some people tell me the NOVA 3 sets are the next new thing and those are the only sets I should be working on... Meanwhile, I also hear how no one is going to ever use the NOVA 3 sets in future simming and I should just give up on them and focus on making complete sets, instead.

I dunno... Maybe I am just babbling, but the whole thing feels confusing, at times.
More ranksets?! SERIOUSLY?!
 Ugh... More downtime... ;(

Down for close to 36 hrs. It had something to do with someone above my provider screwing around with and changing all the IPs, so none of his sites were working. Anyhow, that has been fixed and we are back up.

Still, there has been a lot of downtime lately and it is starting to get annoying...
More ranksets?! SERIOUSLY?!
 I am still working on stuff, but I have other stuff on the go, too.

Hi. I updated my policies section due to the revelation of the Google Ad Sense fiasco. For those of your who are unfamiliar with it, click here. They have the article as well as the leaked info.

It is yet another example of why I continue to disassociate myself with Google.

Also, for some reason the image replacement scripts for avatar and banners are broken. I am investigating.
^ UPDATE: It is working again. Looks like there was a problem in the script that is responsible for creating the images. The replacements were uploading, but they had all the wrong ID tags, so without the right connections, they were not showing up.

^ Thanks to FleetAdmKtyra for spotting this problem for me.

 Ds9 add-on added in, but nothing was subtracted...?

Evil me, here. I have done up an Airforce add-on for the latest DS9 set

Lord Grimm also pointed out another bug in one of my ranksets that has been fixed. Thank you.

Lord Grimm was kind enough to direct me to a small bug on my site. A while back I had done a couple submissions that pointed to larger, more detailed pages. That script was missing from all aspects of the site, even though the data and links were there. It has been corrected and uploaded.

Thanks for noticing!

I have also noticed a lack of sim links coming my way. If you have a sim and you want a link here, send it my way! :o
I swat another bug!
 Woo! Donation!

Thank you.

Also, fixed an image glitch in the Guest Rankset section.

 I think I speak for everyone

It's nice to see Kuro back in business in terms of making ranks. Kuro and I have discussed the difficulties he's gone through in the past year and I know how hard it's been. It's really nice to see the website and Kuro back on their collective feet, no matter the extent. Kuro produces some real quality artwork and I hold it in the highest regard.
 A small outage

There was a small outage earlier today. Someone else on the same box as us got DDoSed and the server went boom!
It's back now, Continue your stalking of Kuro-chan!

Some top-of-the-line DS9 Rankset Images can be found by clicking the link.

Also, I think my Ranks page needs some sort of shuffling around. It feels like much of the work is jumbled and out of place.

UPDATE: Answering Eliana Tamerin's question: What has changed is:
  • Different Admiral Trim
  • Minor changes to the Alpha Channel
  • Uses the most recent pip set which was re-created at the start of the year for Meyer's Thin DS9 Ranks project.
  • Additional Cadet and Warrant Officer varities.

Special thanks to Stephen Clark for his incentive... once I get it.

I was also asked about why the change in Warrant Officer ranks. I have been getting a lot of feedback about users wanting different variants of the Warrant Officers. Some want a pips-version, others want single chevrons, etc. So, I ended up creating 3 different variants and put them in separate folders. To make it work with current Nova, move whatever warrant ranks you want to use into the other folder with your navy ranks and it should be good (I do not sim, thus do not use Nova, so I am relying on what others tell me).
I haz a new site style!
