|Website moving, part 2... (Posted by namedrisk - 12-20-2016, 05:41 PM)|
|The moving has completed and until the DNS fully propagate some users may get some difficulties accessing our website.
The propagation usually takes from 1 hour to maximum of 48 hours, which vary from provider to provider.
Since this is a new host, if you guys notice any issues, please report them to me so we can fix it...
In the next couple days we will be fine tuning everything on the site to ensure it works smoothly.
Thanks. There are 3 comments in this thread, read more...
|API Discontinued! (Posted by namedrisk - 11-25-2016, 07:16 PM)|
|We have had the API out for a long time now, and unhappily, it did not reach the target audience we wanted to reach, so we will be discontinuing the API. HOWEVER, we will keep it compatible with the bot.
What does discontinuing the API means then?
It means we will no longer provide support or implement new features in it. The last 2 features that will be implement in it are feature we had promised to add to it in the past, which are friend and party request/invites, after those come in no other new implementations will be done to the API.
We will however keep it up to date(with the game updates) so every one can continue to use it. *See below for more information on the conditions...
But what about new bots and other stuff?
This does not stop developers from developing new plugins with the API, it just limits to what they have access to, there are still many plugins that can be made with the current API that no developer have tried to, as an example:
These will be done exclusively by Alain or I.
A list of upcoming bots that will be released as we go in no specific order are:
Followed by(mainly because I will start it from scratch as to not have any API dependencies):
But why don't you terminate the API now?
The only reason we are not terminating the API, is because netHox is and has been a very helpful part of SkandiaBOT, developing plugins which users were pleased with, providing support and so on, thus we will keep the API compatible, for as long as his interest or SkandiaBOT lasts.
*If at some point he decides to move on and at that point there is not a solid group of developers around then yes, at that point we will completely terminate the API as in it not being compatible with the bot anymore. And we will provide to those who had a product with netHox a key to similar product of ours(if any) following our sales pattern as we will not be having any lifetime keys.
If you have some concern or questions, feel free to post below, so long as its kept educated and organized! There are 9 comments in this thread, read more...

|What is the Beater group? (Posted by namedrisk - 11-18-2016, 11:50 PM)|
|First to explain a bit, the word "beater" it self, by the dictionary, have a different meaning, however, here we use it as the short term for "Beta Testing Group", which we got from SAO(yes, I know).
The Beater group was used for a different purpose in the past, and I am now upgrading its requirements, those who were previously in this group and are no longer active or wish to leave it, will receive the Community Citizenship in exchange.
The Beater group is responsible to help us testing, reporting bugs/improvements to us, before, during or after a feature release.
In exchange, those in that group, based on their efforts to test what we ask them, will:
It's a tedious, boring work, that we normally do our self before we release anything, but regardless of us doing it, its never enough to spot all issues, that some times some of you report to us.
It helps us in many ways, but ultimately, it HELPS you, to get something better and better. This let us us focus on what matters, reduces our needs to actually having to wait hours to go and try to reproduce some weird behavior and things alike.
What we can offer to those doing this is listed above and limited to it, asking us for more than that or extra access will not happen.
Think well if u wish to join this group!
How to join this group?
We might edit this as we see fit as this is just a basic idea of it for now! Read more...
