This page is an experimental log of updates and changes to the website. This page is protected because no one else can actually update the website or provide insight.


January 31, 2007

January was a good month for UOGuide. About 150 new pages of information were added. Notable additions include: Cooperative Collections, Covetous, Animals, and Stygian Abyss. This month also marks the collaboration between Inuwiki, which integrates lots of event content from the past year into UOGuide. It is a win-win for both sites. This month also brought much exciting news to the UO world about the Kingdom Reborn expansion. Not only details, but actual game play footage was played at the Atlantic Town Hall meeting.

The last thing I will mention is there are over 1,750 wanted pages on the site currently. Wanted pages are red links which need a page created. If you are reading this, then we could certainly use your help adding them! - JC the Builder 19:13, 31 January 2007 (PST)

I just got finished coding in the new privacy shield for anonymous contributors. Only UOGuide administrators will be able to see your IP address, so feel free to contribute without registering an account. I apologize to anyone who tried to use the site and it was broken, I didn't realize that something was borked for logged out users. I began the process of setting up a testing site for changes earlier today but ran into some issues. But that should be a piece of cake to solve compared to trying to modify the Mediawiki code. It is such a mess trying to find the exact spot to make a one line change, sheesh.

Something else I should probably mention is the new poll on the front page. I plan on making further modifications which include hiding results before voting and not allowing users to change their vote. In addition, polls are not allowed anywhere else on the site due to the amount of resources it takes to have one on a page. - JC the Builder 21:16, 5 January 2007 (PST)

  • Update: The privacy shield code was removed due to bugs. It will be reimplemented at a later date.

January 1, 2007

Added Google Sitemaps extension and got that all setup. It seems Google is already crawling the site very nicely. Also changed the default timezone to EST. Registered users can still see their own time zone in preferences. I would like to get it off military time, but there doesn't seem an easy route to that at this time. One of the next updates will be a privacy shield for unregistered user IPs on the recent change list.
