You might notice that ServUO is looking a little different today! That is because I have updated the forum software to the latest and greatest version.
What this means is we now will have the latest features and optimizations that xenforo offers! However, this also means that some features we had before will not work anymore due to them being incompatible with the latest version of the software. The biggest feature missing being the shard list.
The shard list was a big project that I never managed to get finished. Over the years it became bloated and slow and buggy so I made the decision not to work on the existing system to bring it into the latest version of ServUO. Instead I will be going back to the drawing board on it and come up with another solution in the future. Not gonna promise that will be any time soon though as it is a big undertaking but we will get there eventually.
As with any big update to anything, there might be bugs. Please let me know if you...
In an effort to help us better manage the contribution process and validate new content as it is submitted, I have enabled the following features for ServUO's master repository branch.
Require pull request reviews before merging:
All commits must be made to a non-protected branch and submitted via a pull request with at least one approved review and no changes requested before it can be merged into master.
Require status checks to pass before merging:
Choose which status checks must pass before branches can be merged into master.
Commits must first be pushed to another branch, then merged or pushed directly to master after status checks have passed.
Require branches to be up to date before merging:
This ensures the branch has been tested with the latest code on master.
I am going to prefix this announcement with this: No data has been leaked from ServUO's servers.
Earlier today CloudFlare made this blog post. Basically they made a boo boo and a very tiny amount of traffic going through cloudflare may have been cached by search engines when it should not have been. This data can contain sensitive data including session and cookie information.
Cloudflare is used by a lot of very big websites out there. ServUO is just one site out of hundreds of thousands. All of these sites would have been open to this issue so it is very important that you change your passwords not just on ServUO but on any other website you frequent too. If those sites offer 2 factor authentication it is recommended you turn it on. If you would like to turn this on for ServUO you can do so here: https://www.servuo.com/account/two-step
Hey man, could you extend my appreciation to Djeryv for all his work and dedication to his shard world? It really reinvigorated the UO experience for me. Sorry that thread had to be locked. A real shame. Thanks for moderating the forum!
