ReworkI am no longer going to show icons indicating who is one of my mod users by default. Many have expressed concerns of someone making a list of users and banning them. I think it's unfounded but to make people happy, you can only see the icons if your running the site's mod and have updated recently. You should know that the site forgets people because i have cookies disabled. I will fix that one day but untill then you can go into the mod on the website tab and click the "send info" button to be recognized by the site whenever it happens.
Mod changeI updated the mod to fix a bug that would break it if you were running the game unallied.
Kabam changeKabam doubled the aetherstone cap for each city via the forum knights. That's cool. I hit the cap all the time.
Kabam Forum PostI have been entertaining myself recently with reading the forums. I saw a post titled "The introduction to the court of the new Game Master" and I laughed really hard at the first response.
ok great, thanks for wasting 15 mins of my life to tell me you got a new job.
Welcome. So get to work, and you can start with the messed up messaging system first.
kocmon: I got annoyed too. The post goes on and on and says nothing important. I have been counting the ban/deletes from the linked that was posted at the bottom of all that nonsense. So far in the 5 pages of responses the admins have...

I don't know what is up with Kabam. Someone in managment is making a lot of bad mistakes that are extending into the forums. Culture change? Whatever it is it needs to be turned around.
Kabam Forum PostI was looking up info about the summoner's circle and I saw this post that made me laugh...
The five stones are actually 'cards' and are named: Discover, Amex, Visa, MasterCard and PayPal.
To acquire these cards one must first ascend to level 3 Fool. Third level fool ascension can be quickened by foregoing non related purchases such as food, utilities, mortgages, tuition or car payments.
If you or anyone you know ascends to level 3 Fool please post their pros and cons, the latter I assume would include a lack of priorities.
CommentI am sure you have noticed that the site has been acting funny for the last 18 hours or so. I implemented several speed improvements.
FixSomeone was scanning the site for vulnerabilities earlier. As i was looking through some log files to see what it was doing I noticed pages with double slashes were being considered valid by my cms so i implemented a fix. The cms i use for the site is 100% custom so i miss things.

CommentI get very annoyed sometimes. Every time i remove all of the change log junk from the front page, the page rank for the entire site drops. I don't think it's very fair. I get far more hits then other koc websites excluding the wiki but still, i should at least show in the top 20. I have 900k pages (mostly player profiles and alliances) which seems great, but they appear to google as lots of empty internal links. I give out data rather then pages of tutorials so it's understandable that the site takes a traffic hit. I get that. I can accept that but you would think that google would realize i have something valuable due to the repeat visits. I use their ads and website tools so google knows but it's not reflected in the page rank. I want to provide info, data, not tutorials like everyone else. It's extremely frustrating.
Back OnlineEveryone convinced me to turn the site back on. You can't pay me enough to do this but apparently you can make me feel needed enough to continue on. Gezz I hate koc. I refunded all the donations from yesterday and today. Something I didn't know, Paypal returns fees so I don't end up losing anything. It's going to be at least 24 hours before the updater can catch up.
ChangesThe bug with the manual updates for 406 are fixed for sure. You might have noticed a few links were renamed. Someone pointed out to me that glory and total glory were kinda of confusing so i renames total glory pages to just glory and renamed your current glory to tournament glory which makes more sense.
Bug FixI know there is a bug with domain 406 not allowing some manual updates. I think i figured it out but i will keep watching it. I also noticed that might history for our top 2 or 3 players was above the cap. I increased it so it's not a problem anymore.
