Update for 11/21/22

Password Reset: We finally got approved for Amazon SES production (24 hour SLA be damned apparently) and password reset emails will now work again and ACTUALLY be delivered.

Update for 11/20/22

Menu Updates

  • Moved the menu to a link based foundation powered menu
  • Moved MudVerse logo into menu, made much smaller
  • Moved menu to top of site

I hadn't looked at the voting code in a while and I noticed a few bugs. My original intention was to make it so you could only vote once per day, but the way I was tabulating votes actually made it so you could vote once per hour (I was clearing out votes while tabulating, which meant I lost who had voted already).

I've done a few things to update the way it works:

  • No longer clearing out tabulated votes, instead scope the vote tabulation query to the previous hour.
  • Updated the vote page to state you can vote only once per 24 hour period.
  • If you try to vote when you are on cooldown it will tell you your vote isn't logged
  • When your vote is successful it will let you know.

Keeping the log of the previous votes instead of tabulating and emptying the table makes sense-- I think in 2007 I was more worried about that table trending toward infinity, but it's really not an issue. Having the audit log of votes will also let me more easily investigate if someone is botting.

Edit / View Listing Page:

  • Added a 'webclient url' field in the connection info of the add/edit listing that will overwrite the default Sindome Public Webclient used to connect to games using 'Play Now' on the game details page.
  • For games that provide a custom webclient URL, the play now button will now use that URL
  • Test Connection on edit game details will use the custom webclient URL for testing connections
  • Game banners are back on the page, and positioned better. Try to upload a banner and not a weird sized image :)
  • Got rid of ugly green coloring and changed to more greyscale for various game info elements on page
  • Fixed broken banner image links for sponsored games

  • Overhauled the presentation of the top games, recent games, & recent reviews sections
  • Got an elastic IP and setup reverse DNS so the MSSP crawler will show up as coming from mudverse.com
  • Fixed a bug with MSSP display where it would show 'PLAYERS NO' if players online was 0 (same with 1 showing as yes)
  • Reset Password emails will now be sent via Amazon SES, increasing deliverability (this will take effect 11/18)
  • If you had trouble resetting your password previously, where it went through but you couldn't log in, this should be fixed
  • Fixed some PHP errors that were showing up in the log
