Site Update News

Post by Shade » Fri Jul 18, 2008 11:26 am

Dear Community!

At 4th August, the new webserver will be (hopefully) ready. This server is only for UT99.org and 2 other projects (1 UT, 1 non-UT). So i finance it with two other guys.

Well, what are the vantages with the new webserver?
1. a 250 GB hard drive
2. i can setup some(!) UT-servers on it (im going to start with one for us of course, then ill see how many other UT-servers are realisable, because i have to take care of the two other projects ;) )
3. Ehm... and it is fast, secure and just a great server. :)

At 4th August i think we have to setup general settings at first. One week later it should be possible to move with UT99.org to the new webserver. Then im going to install a new software for our website. Only the forum will be the same. After this ill install a SEO-Mod (SEO=Search Enginge Optimisation) on the forum (i hooope 8) ).

And finally, after all these setups/updates/whatever, im going to install the first UT-server on it. I know, it will take very long until the first UT-server will be online.

But first things first, so please have patience. :)

Regards

I wont be the "one and only" of course. ;)
Server-mods would be probably the Staff Team, maybe with some exceptions.

Well, if GenMoKai is trying to get admin powers in a legal way (and if he can persuade me)...why i should not trust him? :P

Well it were only some questions other maybe should have asked ;) Cause i think it will be good IF a server have at least 1 admin online when more then (lets say) 4 people are in the server. To check it out, or just to make fun in the server :) What is overall the most important thing there is. Cause with (i think everybody does) have experiences with other servers that there always can be some annoying people like. Spamming/Kill team mates/being annoying to shoot each other even when friendly fire is off/Shooting team mates from cliffs for no reasons. We all know these problem! Correct me if im wrong ;)

Further! is it about me ? :o or is the joke about UBX ? :P

Back to topic ;)

IF we get our own server... what gametypes are there possible to play? Or do we start a poll for that?
