  1. Alright, good. The more the merrier.
  2. The “Encryption mode” option is set to “Prefer encryption” (default setting). I did however troubleshoot the port forwarding and resolved an issue there. Let me know if it works for you now (currently not getting any peers, though I verified that it was working with a client on another network). Thanks for the idea, but I think I'll just stick with the “torrent” kind of seeding. I don't think we have bluejays here either (am in Europe, not America). Not like I have a porch either.
  3. I'm releasing a torrent of downloads for all of Ross's machinima videos* previously available from this site. The videos are all unmodified from the legacy downloads and in original quality (especially noticeable for the early Civil Protection episodes, the quality of which is absolutely butchered on YouTube). I figure that having a torrent would be the best stop-gap solution until something better can be figured out for this website (open to options on that front if you have any good ideas). Magnet link: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:208a2aba4c7f133cc4d993ad48b0f6b696a8fccc&dn=accursed_farms_machinima (or in shorter form, if you prefer: v.gd/AFvids) Torrent file: accursed_farms_machinima.torrent Size: 1.53 GiB Format: MKV (H.264 with MP3 audio) Includes the following videos: I strongly recommend you seed this if you're interested at all, as I am only seeding this off my PC and wouldn't want the torrent to die out either. You can get the subtitles for all videos from the Official Accursed Farms Subtitles Compendium by @danielsangeo in SRT format. I currently use qBittorrent as my torrent client of choice, though Deluge and Transmission are also good choices (all are cross-platform and free software). Just make sure to enable the DHT and PEX protocols if they aren't already. * Excluding episodes of Freeman's Mind 2 because the downloads haven't been released yet, and Freeman's Mind because it already has an active torrent; including those videos here would be redundant. I would recommend people to seed that torrent as well! cc: @BTGBullseye, @QuakeIV, @noli, @Mode 7
  4. @thou: see this forum post for Freeman's Mind 1 downloads. There aren't any downloads for FM2 episodes available yet, that should get implemented in the future. EDIT: just to temper your expectations, the downloads aren't being actively worked on, but are something I would like to see added to the website at some point in time. I will however set up a torrent of legacy video DLs soon.
  5. I don't think that’s a good retort, even though I don't agree with his argument entirely either. A series that is good for binging doesn't necessarily have to have that aspect be the only thing of merit.
  6. The edit time restriction has been lifted! Now you should be able to edit your posts, no matter their publishing date. Along with that, we've added a feature to see the edit history of a post (doesn't apply retroactively). If there's something you don't want people to see in the edit history, you can contact us and we'll sort it out. There is also now a staff directory in the forum index header which should be useful for anyone looking to contact, you guessed it, the staff.
  7. @blunthappiness: Please ask that in the Reddit thread. I've locked this thread to prevent further confusion — I'll be sure to get Ross to do that next time he posts one of these.

    It working is news to me, since last time I checked, it seemed to be entirely gone — it couldn't even return the file listing. I feel I'm still obligated to release the other machinimas (machinimae?) in torrent form, but I'll do that next decade. EDIT: I have released a torrent of the machinima videos, see Accursed Farms Machinima Torrrent.
  9. You can press on the "Search" button with the default year range — that accomplishes the same thing you want.
  10. That is odd. In any case, the refreshing fix I mention should function now. No full fix for the issue yet, I should get that out in a day or two. They're things you see when hovering over usernames.
  11. The hovercards are also now fixed, they seem to have been borked for a while.
  12. https://gmod.facepunch.com/12days The official Gmod website has an advent calendar of sorts this year featuring various machinimas, almost all of them made using Garry's Mod (of course). The Tunnel seems to be the outlier in this regard, considering that it was entirely made using the Source SDK.
  13. The Game List now has an RSS feed! This practically took no effort to add, the only reason this took so long is that I got side-tracked with other things and forgot. Anyway, it's a thing for anyone who wants it. I would also like to point out that you can make feeds of your own using the activity stream feature. For example, here's a feed of all comments for the list. The functionality is a bit hidden, but could be of use to some of you. cc: @BTGBullseye, @Katamori
  14. Not intentional, fixed. EDIT: The problem is more complicated than I thought, will fix ASAP. EDIT 2: Right, now, a solution would be to refresh the page after selecting a field to sort by, then selecting the sorting direction.
  15. Hey, that's the same dev that made Nyet III and The Cave World!
  16. As of this update, that feature has been added!
  17. I updated the title of this thread to “Website issues and improvements”, since the forums have been unified for quite some time now. We also upgraded the version of Invision Community to the latest one. However, this may have caused some unwanted issues. I would like you to report any problems that you do have in this very thread.
  18. Wasn't that a thing, like, 4 or more years ago? I recall him having plans for animations about some of his stories a while ago (he said that in the 2015 announcements video IIRC), you might want to see that come into fruition.

    Hey, I do have all the video downloads backed up, but yeah, we removed them during the migration for technical reasons. I could help set up a torrent, I don't think Ross would mind it at all (will ask him about it later).
  20. From the ToS: The latest news I've heard is that it's a disclaimer stating that it can disable YouTube or specific parts of the service, e.g. YouTube Music. That does seem more likely, but YouTube still being a brick wall doesn't help any of this. Also, IIRC, this has already been a thing in the EEA for a couple of months.
  21. ed is a text editor predating monitors (people used teleprinters back then), so it's very obtuse. I guess you could compare using it to wandering in the dark only being able to see what's right in front of you. Anyway, this is a great conversation, but it is getting massively off-topic.
  22. Ed is the standard text editor.
  23. “Bringing Up Grandma Considered Harmful”
  24. That scenario was imagining someone who really is a total newbie with not much experience to warrant the use of Windows apps, so I wouldn't imagine that to be much of an issue anyway. I do agree with your sentiment on the decentralised nature of Linux being a detriment for mass adoption. It's not really an OS per se, there's a whole community with its schisms and what-not. Someone new to computers definitely isn't going to install a distribution all by themselves, it's usually a tech-savvy relative helping out.
  25. Be careful, there are spambots on the loose! (Just checked and the one you replied to was one.)
