Hi folks, long time no see. I was thinking of RPGWO recently and decided to pop my head in. Good to see some things never change and some of you that I recognize are still around! Hope things are going well for everyone.

What's going on guys? Nice to see you haven't killed the forums since I've been gone ;)

Announcements / Patch
« on: April 13, 2009, 09:03:51 pm »
Patched the forums in an effort to prevent a new spam bot occurrence. It is believed that humans are registering to satisfy the reCAPTCHA requirements and then activating a "bot" to send hundreds of SPAM messages via the PM system.

If you are receiving spam messages via PM, please let me know ASAP. The patch I introduced today introduces a flood control system for PM's and it will only slow down the spam, not stop it. I will have to manually ban offenders (if there are any). Please note that the flood control for PM's will not be applied to long-term members.

Thanks guys,

That's right, Shoutbox V2 has arrived!

The most important new feature that has been added is private chat. Similar to PMs, you can click on any other user's name to engage in a real-time private chat.

I hope you guys enjoy!

As you guys noticed, the server went down and got restored around midnight EST.

All should be good now, but some posts may have been lost in the process.

Welcome to RPGWOForums V2!
(90% completed..)

  • Upgraded forum software
  • Updated CAPTCHA system to combat spam bots
  • Introduced reCAPTCHA
  • Removed all spam bots (and their topics and posts)
  • Rearranged the forums
  • Sent out PMs to offer moderator positions to selected members

Still to come:
  • Upgrading the mods to work with the new forum software
  • Adding new mods on top of our current ones
  • A new skin

Note: I'm currently having issues getting onto Invisionize, so until it starts working for me, I will be unable to add the mods (like the shoutbox) or the new skin to the forums. Sorry!

Announcements / V2 Forum Skin

Hey guys,

With the launch of V2 I'm interested in putting up a new skin on the forums (like the good ol' days). If you have any SKIN SUGGESTIONS please post the link here.

Remember: we are version 2.3.x (and that link above takes you right to the 2.3.x section)



Announcements / Concerning the Spam Bots
« on: October 07, 2008, 03:29:39 pm »
Hello everyone,

As some of you may have noticed, there has been a large increase in the number of spam bots that have been trolling the forums. We are not the only forums that have been annoyed by this, as a security bug has been identified that allows custom scripts to be run that allows a bot to register on forums.

I've taken a look into the security bug and I'm working on some fixes of my own to solve this issue. The fixes will be released when the forums go to V2. Currently, I'm working on some back end stuff to prepare for V2 as it rolls around, which will hopefully be soon.

Hello everyone,

These forums are a community. Those who are here have, at one point, played the game and had some sort of fun with it. With the release of V2 it has been nice to see the numbers back up at 30 people online. Unfortunately, some forum members think that it is okay to try to purposely ruin the game play of others by exploiting bugs. This is in no way acceptable and the offending members have been removed from the community.

If you don't want to play RPGWO anymore, that's your call. All you have to do is exit the game and go do something else with your life. Don't ruin the fun for everyone else.

Hey everyone,

With the official start of V2 I have noticed that a lot of our older veterans have decided to give RPGWO another go (Mickey is updating, listening to suggestions, and overall improving the game). I think this is great because RPGWO always brought me good times.

Now with the launch of V2 I'm thinking that the forums could undergo a major change in support of the changes going on in V2.

I need your opinions and feedback for what you would like to see if I overhauled the forums for V2.

1. I'm thinking about introducing a portal as the main page. We can still have the newest replies and whatever on the front, but hopefully add a forum poll and some news on the front page (could be RPGWO news, or just interesting articles that people write and submit).

2. Bring back the arcade

3. Introduce a new skin (yeah it's been a while!)

4. Remove old forums, add new ones, etc.

So please take some time to comment on these ideas because I'd like to know what you think. Also, feel free to check out Invisionize (CLICK HERE) and link me to mods that you'd be interested in, or even skins. Remember: we are version 2.3.x. If we have more than one suggestion for skins, we may have a poll set up to vote for the best one, etc.

Depending on how fast your responses are, this may go into play as soon as Friday night/ Saturday.

Thanks guys,

Hello everyone,

I've been super busy lately moving and all, but I've updated the forums to reflect the changes with all of the servers.

In other news, the flaming is going to stop on the forums outside of the Uncensored forum. Since RPGWOForums are the official RPGWO forums, we need to have some sort of welcoming atmosphere for new people who are starting to join the game with the release of V2. Please do not flame newcomers to the forums. A team of secret moderators is being put together to curb the flaming and to help provide an atmosphere that is good for everyone.

Also, the army system is being reset (finally) after a long time of nothing. If you're up for playing, go ahead and start fresh.

If anyone has suggestions for what I can do to make the forums more appealing to you, please post here.



Announcements / Bandwidth
« on: July 24, 2008, 10:24:31 pm »

The bandwidth is dangerously close to the limit - closer than last time. Tomorrow I may have to take down the forums. If that is the case, I will gladly put up a blank page with links to the Ventrilo server, and other rogue servers as necessary.

If you want your stuff linked on the main page when/if the forums are down, post it here.

Announcements / Reduced Services
« on: June 28, 2008, 07:08:57 pm »
Due to bandwidth consumption almost reaching our limit, the forums are running on reduced services until July 1st. If we get any closer to the limit I will be forced to take down the forums until the month rolls over.

Thanks guys,


Announcements / May 29 Features
« on: May 28, 2008, 11:21:10 pm »
Hey guys,

I'm going to feature a few topics around the forums because I find them to be particularly interesting. You may want to take a moment to check them out and contribute.

Ironic Pics by Rathade is an interesting little game. I've never seen it before and it's rather interesting to see what people come up with.

Happy Birthday Simmias by Dravien was made for Simmias' birthday yesterday. Stop by and wish him a happy birthday if you haven't done so already. I haven't, I will now.

This Summer by Chronolink is the first part of a story that proves to be a fun read.

The Underground (NSFW) is a new section of the forums dedicated to adult entertainment topics and other sensitive material. Feel free to contribute with new topics or replies, or check out my tiger or Chuck? series.

I will be looking for new and interesting topics to feature. PM me your suggestions or make a good topic and see if it makes the list!


Announcements / No More Mods
« on: May 25, 2008, 05:26:54 pm »
Complaining about censorship? Fine.

The mods are removed, the admins are removed.

There are a few things I won't put up with though. I hate your spam and I hate your constant flaming. I'll continue to delete/ edit those posts.

Has anyone played it yet? It looks so good but I don't have either a 360 or a PS3.

Hey guys,

I'm going to be wiping the army system soon, it's been going for a while.

I'd like to know how you guys have liked the changes and whether or not you'd like me to make the game even harder.



RPGWO 2 / Admin Check Landlist & Tamelist
« on: February 23, 2008, 06:15:23 pm »

I think that it would be useful if admins could use the following commands:

/landlist <playername>
/tamelist <playername>

Similar to the way an admin can use /guildmember <guild> to check the members of a guild.
