Posted by:panschk[FP] I just finished programming the first version of an tourney-script. It supports only single-elimination tournaments right now, if this version works correct I might add more tournament-types later.
Everyone who might be interested in playing a tourney some day should get him/herself an account right now, by registering a name you don't register to a tourney. The bracket will be made when the tourney starts, that way there should not be too many walkovers.
To test the script, the system and the support I will host a small tournament tomorrow.
Monday, 8:00 PM (GMT+01 / central european time) in "op fp-clan" on europe. It's "best of one" and the only map in the mappack is "space pirates".
See you there;)
Posted by:panschk[FP] I just made a new design for the page. I use php.include and tables now instead of frames. It has become slightly slower, but there are also things I can do now that I could not before. (Like the "newest updates" list on the right side)
It is still not very beautifull, If someone wants to make a better banner, he should do it;)
For those of you not visiting the forums frequently, We have decided (i guess) to hold a weekly "Map of the Week" (MotW) event. The maps are decided by site admin and voting will take place among a selected few (since visitors proven over and over that the ratingsystem is too easily abused :( ) But nontheless a map of the week will be decided and the price will hopefully be a tourney played on the winning map giving the creator alot of replays to look at! :). There is no starting date set yet because the event is still under development, but i thought it definitely was worth mentioning anyway :)
IF ANYONE HAVE GOOD IDEAS CONCERNING THE PRICE OF THE TOURNEYWINNER (PLAYER), PLEASE POST THEM IN THE FORUM THREAD "motw#1"!!! There should be something desirable, but shouldn't cost anything or beeing a physical thing. Examples: A special avatar by the name or a Special StarCraft account that one would want: Like SlayerS_`BoxeR` :) Or whatever, go figure.
Bad News.. :(
It has come to my attention that some tensions has evolved between some of our visitors. Everyone must understand that "a personal opinion is not more than that, and it does not help insulting anyone else" (quote, panschk) This site was created with the best of intentions - to host a free map database with no registration and no obligations, and so far He (Panschk, aka God:)) has succeded. Don't ruin the concept with bad behaviour. We will have to work out a "codex of behaviour" if we still are encountering problems with this issue, but hopefully we will not come to that point where it is necesary.
I know it seems like alot of bad news all the time, but the site is still in it's infant stages and before the system is fully developed, things like this will occur :P But with your help we will make this a funny functional map database/comunity and we will definitely have very fun getting there too.
