Website Updates and News
 The Day the Banhammer was used.
Posted by Kuro-chan - July 11th, 2015 - 06:47
Hi hi.

I had to make a couple important updates to the site today. Turns out someone/something registered on the site to phish the email I use in the registration forms and used it to send spam to that address. It had been spam-free up to today (A good, long run)

So, my response:
  • Updated the Terms of Service for registration.
  • Setup something new for the anti-spam system. It now relies on one of several random images.
  • Got rid of the contaminated email and and re-setup my contact page to direct to that one.
  • Changed the email "Reply-to" to an existing junk email account, which I don't care if anything happens to it, because I never read or use it.
  • Dropped the banhammer on an account for violating me in such a way. I had setup a 'banned' option when I first re-built the site in PHP. Took this long to actually use it for the first time...

There is no reason for me to tolerate this, and given that the account was never validated, I have strong reason to believe it was created for this specific purpose.

 Some welcome relief!

Thank you to Fruitloop, owner of the awesome Scifi Avatars site for your donation.

I am also aware that as a result of this, I am expected to make some Klingon and Romulan ranksets, so those will be going up soon enough.

It's somewhere around today, (Yesterday? Tomorrow? Actually, I'm not sure) so I figure I may as well put something up on the site.

It was suggested I do an old-style version of TNG ranks.
Linky!

Hello all, just thought I would make an announcement that I have returned to make some updates and add new ranks over the next few months; now that Kuro has kindly fixed any errors I had accessing the site.

Good to see you all.

 Mean Bots...

I have had a recent issue where it seems like certain bot scripts were artificially running up the counters on some stuff. I have made changes to a couple scripts and hopefully that will stop things.

The only drawback in the design is: If you have full cookies, sessions, etc. all disabled, none of your activity will trigger the counters, but I figure that is better than the bots running the numbers up by the hundred.

 Just for something random.

I changed the "Sergeant Major" rank to "Cheesecake Sergeant", because I can.

Thanks to Jonesy for pointing out two separate problems related to the avatar submission box. Looks like typos and accidentally removed folder means avatars don't get saved or updated.

 More fixing and more breaking...

DS9, Camouflage Set
Patch (Corrected images only): Linky

DS9, Duty Uniform, Thin-Style
Patch (Corrected images only): Linky

TNG, Future Era
Patch (Corrected images only): Linky

I also fixed the integrated TNG, Seasons 1-2. Apparently half of them were missing alpha channels and some of the ranks were incorrectly named.

On a related note: If you find something that looks wrong, like what I mentioned and what I have been trying to fix: Please say something.

On a different note: Keep in mind I am always looking for sites to link to, preferably stuff related to Kuro-RPG, like rankset users.

Kuro here.

Some stuff was completed, posted, updated, etc. Lots of addition content was added onto the site.

First off, more sets (And to my personal satisfaction, they are not Trek sets...)

Full Metal Panic, Mithril
- Split Version
- Integrated Version

Full Metal Alchemist, State Military
- Split Version
- Integrated Version

These sets were updated and completed so I could get my 2015 Kuro-RPG banners completed, along with a new avatar.

...And I was working on sets when this problem surfaced...

There is a problem with every set that uses the 2014 TNG/DS9 pips. The problem lays in the Marine Enlisted ranks. The background colour will 'bleed' into the rank pip.

I have fixed the following:
- DS9
Patch (Corrected images only): linky

- DS9, Old-Size
Patch (Corrected images only): linky

One piece of good news: This does not appear to affect the DS9 split image pips and the TNG ones all sit on dark backgrounds, so there is no reason to tinker with them.

Thanks to Jonathan from Bravo Fleet. The conversation I was having with him led me to this problem that was sitting on the site for months.
