Well, if our Admin would actually get on and put this where it's supposed to be, or maybe if my power wasn't taken from me to begin with, this could have been put in an area where people could see it.

Can you really blame me if I'm stuck on an island in the middle of nowhere with no internet access for nearly a week?


It's worth mentioning that I have direct access to the source code, and mySQL database for our forums unlike at zetaboards where AoW, and ToK are hosted.  If an incident like what happened at ToK in the past occurs here I'll have a lot more access to do something about it than they did.

Perhaps instead of panicking we could request the user's IP and block it...
Well yes, I had a list, but people with actual power were nowhere to be found.  If you'd like, I can run grab it and PM it to you again, but remember that IPBanning isn't a surefire way to take someone down.

Now now, it's difficult for us to get on - we may consider a global mod to monitor the area due to our inactivity *cough*

A list of IPs would be great. Any protection is better than none (I managed to already block one of the IPs, courtesy of Dracobolt).

Role, I'm currently considering a GM canidate, but I need to get an all clear with Atrius first... I'm considering you among one of them, but am hesitant because you did break a rule (ROM linking) which is punishable with banment. We did go easy on you but I'm not sure whether or not I should ease up at the moment.

But why not just list the IPs? Really, if you know them, just give them to us. I'll be on and off until 2:30 pm.

I broke an unwritten rule.  In otherwords, what I THOUGHT was okay turned out to not be the case.  Oh freaking well.  Not my fault the rules weren't clear.  It said don't post roms.  I didn't post a rom. No rule was broken, even if the original rule was supposed to include it.  The fact remains that it said nothing of the sort, and I got slammed and made an example out of for breaking, let me repeat, and unwritten part of that rule.

As for the IPs, it's a start, but it's not all.  I'll be back after I run some errands, and it'll be probably later than that unless I get lucky with bus timing.

But why not just list the IPs?

The problem with IP adresses is that they can be changed (even by the user of the computer). I am not sure if there is a permanent IP address which is seen on websites, or if all saved IP addresses on the computer can be scanned, but just going by the current one being used would probably not help much if the said hacker knows how to change it effectively (and can still get it to work, unlike when I was trying it out).

Have a nice day.

Yeah, it's just as Sala said.  Many people use what's called a Dynamic IP.  I myself am one of them - even if you ban one IP, all the other ones my ISP provides me for my IP Address can get through.

Sigh, I understand that, if we have access to them we could at least make it more difficult, that's what I mean.

Even when people have dynamic IP addresses, unless if they're using proxies, there's usually a pattern to them, so knowing one might tell you who to keep an eye on.

Ok can you guys PM me the IP's because i have someone on my forum who seems similar and i just want to maybe check my bases. any other info would be helpful. Signed up yesterday, but i havent finished investigating his ip and everything so i havent activated him yet. Just standard procedure on my forum.

EDIT: The reason he was picked for a full investigation is because one of my admins requested it. wouldnt tell me why.

Fox: That would be cool to have, yes. Where the text in the ROM is uncompressed. - The huffman compression used in the gba games is not used in the nds game, so perhaps that may be one reason it wasn't done. I think it is some generic compression thingy. If someone did do it (and make the entire ROM uncompressed), perhaps I would be more inclined to work on my dark dawn editor. Hm?

KyleRunner: Could someone please create a GSTOOLKIT compatible with Dark Dawn? I'll try to translate that one to my language as well (as I did with the first two games).
