Slight Change in Pages

I made a slight change to the pages. Most allowed you to comment in them, but I disabled that as I didn’t want people commenting in them. Surprised I never figured that out before…

The major change will be on the Services page. I decided to move the BotServ Rules to its own little area and I’m going to make a form y’all can use if you wish to use that instead of having to go on the IRC. Bogus requests will automatically get deleted. If you had a legitimate request and it goes unanswered for a few days (say.. 5), then you may try again. If still nothing, feel free to bug us in #help about it.

DNS Issues [Fixed]

This is an odd one. The irc.shadowhime.net has been working, but now it doesn’t. I think when I renewed the domain, the arecord got deleted somehow which provided the ability to use irc.shadowhime.net to connect to the server. Funny, because my shippo.shadowhime.net still works fine for stuff I do locally and all that. Well, I sent in a request to my web host and see what he has to say. If anything, this should be fixed by the time you even see this post.

[Fixed] Read the comments.

New Logo~

So uh yeah, Noratetsu failed me and I waited long enough. Took upon myself to do something simple unless someone wants to do something a bit more fancy. Is it the best? No, far from it. I’m no expert in Photoshop and I barely know anyone who is. And anyone who does do graphics often require money, money of which I don’t have.

Anyway, for me, its alright. At least its anime-esque for once, so I guess that’s all that matters. I’ll see about fine-tuning a couple things when I get a chance, but I think for now, it’ll do.

BotServ Requests Updated

Updated the requests for BotServ bots to make them less restrictive, somewhat. Nickname and Channel registrations need to be at least 15 days since registration before a request is considered. The minimum however has been reduced to only 1 channel with 5 users in them. And no, bots do not count and we will find out if that is the case. They need to be unique users and there will be checks involved, such as sending a /CTCP VERSION request, checking the IP associated, etc.

Stats page coming soon

I need to get some info about the JavaScript for the page, but once I do, I plan to have the page as a sub-page under Information. It’ll contain info about the channels, their topics, including a user count for them. At the moment, the script doesn’t agree with the fact that the background of the site is dark. Sucks, but what can you do? Expect an update within a day or so.

Change of Theme

I loved the Dreamline theme, but it was time for a change. Every site has to go through change one way or another.

The original theme had mostly gray links with a light blue hover for ’em. I actually changed the CSS for those (mind you, they were not easy to find on some of them..) for a more purple style that ShadowHime is associated with. Black and Purple. This theme in particular is very well-done, much like Dreamline, except it had one tiny flaw. I couldn’t effectively make a logo for it without having to do drastic changes to the background image. So, scrapped the idea and found a new theme.

I’m currently working on a new image for the logo, and I hope to have some help from Noratetsu. If not, I’ll do it all myself if needed. But I hope it doesn’t come to that. XD I won’t say what the image is though, something y’all will have to figure out on your own. Anyway, stay tuned for further updates.

Fried Tofu!
