Bugfix Weekend!, posted on Tue Mar 31 19:50:48 2015

You may have noticed a flurry of bug replies this past weekend.

This is because we have resurrected Bugfix Weekends.

Below is a list of some of the things various creators have fixed this weekend:

* Players can now set their club channels to be coloured like talker channels (that is, the entire

message rather than just the club name) by setting "options output clubcolour = full".

* When active, the wizard spell Sageroff's Sentry Summoning will now show up in "shields".

* Failing to tear pages from books should now have less confusing failure


* Inhumation musical instruments can now be referred to as "musical


* The jail in Ohulan-Cutash now takes note of your temporal_reality option when telling you how much

longer you have to serve.

* Monsieur Leverett in Genua will now describe your new custom garment before asking you to confirm

that you want it.

This next one was not known by players (at least I hope not because it does not appear to have been reported and it was amusingly abusable):

* You can no longer mimic components for rituals using "nickname".

Many thanks to the creators who have spent time this weekend fixing bugs, as well as to the player who have reported them in the first place.

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.
