Silkroadforums.com will be restored shortly, with the following changes.

Forum Cleaning

The PM tables were dropped. This affects all users. It sucks but it was the most fair, non personal and least violating solution. Some threads that negativly affect other users will be cleaned. So a fresh start for all

Spam and Advertising

All IP bans lifted. Apparently, blocking user IP's affected others who were not the original poster or involved. A freak coincidence, but we will take other measures against spammers instead. For banning a user, IP is fine. But for the mass amounts of spam posters, its too many to have on the list.

Email verification turned on. Now users will have to verify their account via email when registering. This too will reduce the amount of spam posters, and make spam easier for us to control.

Spam posts are to be deleted, instead of edited out or saved.

Bot links and hacks are to be saved, and forwarded to Joymax personal.

Please refrain from flooding the staff team when a spam post is found. If the post wasnt noticed, please contact the moderator of that forum.

Moderators and Staff

The staff team will always work to handle situations the best way possible, to make using the forum more enjoyable for all users.

Rule amendments

Silkroadforums.com strictly prohibits cracks, keygens, bypassing trial versions of softwares and other methods of illegal activies. These posts will be edited or removed without discussion.

Silkroadforums.com prohibits copyright violations of artwork and other materials in the artists corner. This includes using an image without crediting the author, or altering works without permission of the original owner.

Site Changes

The board will be updated soon to the latest version. This may cause some display problems for users. Sometime this week, mass screenshot pruning will occur as well, to ease storage and bandwith use.

this is so great. really helps ease a monday :p

a question though. of course it is hypothetical but lets say yuo post in a topic/ post that later gets deleted is the post count lowered?i wouldn't think so but it would make people not get credited for posts that were bad

I do not know if this software updates your post count when a post is deleted.

However, the planned cleaning is not so severe that it would have much impact.

We simply plan to resolve the latest hiatus, and improve the way we handle things.

  • C Cherry.Grove:
    My one game was basically Among Us but you sabotaged an entire medieval city simulated drastically inefficiently with dynamic NPCs :S
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    of course I never finished it x D
  • jonas jonas:
    xD
  • jonas jonas:
    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches
  • jonas jonas:
    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm currently creating (as a hobby) a space invaders like game for mobile using Xamarin, after starting a few larger projects that I also may not have finished :rolleyes::p
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome! you should look at the Atari VCS platform it does not have a huge user base but the one it has is super active at around 11k and they have no games in there store
  • The Helper The Helper:
    basically it is linux
  • The Helper The Helper:
    OMG it is BanLord as Blackveiled on the forum
  • The Helper The Helper:
    what is up buddy
  • jonas jonas:
    thanks for the tip, that sounds cool. Never heard about the VCS before but seems like it should be a good match
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The winter vacation left a toll on me. I missed staying up late and sleeping in late.
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    i haven't looked into it yet
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    If I could use something Python compatible it would save me some learning
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    But Unity might be easiest
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    looking at old posts here makes me happy. Makes me be all like "wow I was pretty smart in 2009"
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.

  • The Helper The Helper:
    What does not kill you makes you stronger is what they say
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    for real! :cool:
  • Varine Varine:
    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
