Playerlinks Updated, posted on Sat Mar 14 20:54:26 2015

The playerlinks code has undergone a revamp.

Firstly, we've changed the link validation code so that a few valid pages that the old code was unable to validate will now be validated.

Secondly, you can apply a tag to a link. This tag can be one of: General, Crafts, Assassins, Priests, Thieves, Warriors, Witches and Wizards; and the display of links can be filtered by the tag.

All links have been tagges as 'General' initially, so you may want to go to the playerlinks page, scroll to the bottom and click on 'Add/Update links' to edit the tags for your links.

Finally, if a link you have submitted fails to validate, you will receive a warning mail informing you what the error was. Validation attempts will be attempted roughly every hour, and you will receive a second warning mail if it fails to validate 6 times in a row. After the sixth attempt, validation will only be attempted daily. If validation fails every attempt over the following 6 weeks, the link will then be removed from the list. When checking the reason for validation failures, you may wish to consult the manual for curl (google 'man curl') or a list of http response codes (google 'http response codes') to interpret the reason for failure given in the mail.
