As above I do believe some apologising is needed as we havn’t made the time recently to update this website. But now that I (Tyro) have awoke from my flashpoint enduced coma I believe that I now have an obligation to start updating this site again.
So starting from today I will be updating to current + more based on release from codemasters themselves.
I must say, huge difference going from FailPress 2.x-somthing to FailPress 2.8.3, (more…)
As part of my fall cleaning before release I am adding more and more new content to the website to make it easier for you to get the news as it happens and share it with all your friends – who I know love the game as well
The Vandals Strike Again!
After 1500 lines and 80kb of “Deny from”’s later. I have stopped the Turkish Telecom provider Turk Telekom and it’s league of spam riddled clients. As such anyone from Turkey and more so Turkish Telecom provider Turk Telekom will no longer be able to view this website. As well any major known spam ring has been banned as well, as it is possible my host has failed to ban them.
There might be a little bit more lag then normal as a 80kb file is checked every time a page is loaded. However now we can sleep knowing the spammers (or at least this bunch are dead). I would like to Thank Fin for helping out on IRC and the Heroes group and Hi3rling for moral support.
We are still incurring loss to our bandwith, I have opened communciation with my providers to perhaps get them stopped at a server level.
Due to a security leak this website has had it’s bandwidth burned by Turkish Spammers. There is a good chance the website will go offline in the next 2 days. If this happens it may be till the 20th or the 31st until it flips over. I am currently in communications with my webhosting to see if somthing can be done about this issue, without incurring a large unneeded cost.
This downtime will not affect any of the off site groups, flickr, or the toolbar. The data on this website will remain, access will be restricted and the site will display a “bandwidth exceeded” message.
I am working to correct this issue with my limited webskills. I have identified the problem as the Fansite Topsite listing with all 2.2 gigs of dammage done from middle yesterday to this morning.
Further updates will be posted below and then though the mailing list if this website goes down.
I’m trying out a system that will allow clans though a ad system, to advertise them selfs while being advertised on other websites. My aim is to create a mutual visibility system by tweaking a ad system. I am testing it out as of today, and are looking for submissions of clan banners of size (486 x 60) Static no .gifs. As well as first adopters to test how how this product will work. The first test run will go a week and if successful will expand to a larger system.
OperationFlashpoint2.org is now mobile
Do you need your information on the go? are you linked in and want a convenient way to check in on the latest OFP2 info?
Just use your BlackBerry’s/PDA’s/iPhone/Smart phone’s/Phone’s web browser and point it to OperationFlashpoint2.org. This website will recognize that you are mobile and will give you the low-fi version of this site. You will get the latest news posts and a search feature.
As our continual commitment to OFP2 growth we believe in accessibility. For mobile users we already have a e-mail alert system called the Community News Feed but we wished to take it a step further. In the future it is our aim to also link in though RSS the other major fan sites that support community development so that you may view (or at least preview) the latest news from all over the OFP2 Community Network. We hope to make good strides such as mobile reporting, audio and media feeds and video playable for mobile devices.
With a little work perhaps even provide a low-fi version of this website for with limited or poor connections. Keeping in mind the diversity of the Operation Flashpoint community we have members from cottages, farmlands, and remote rural environments as well as countries with poor or limited Internet infrastructure.
We hope you find this new site feature useful, please post a comment and let us know what you think.
You have hit the end of the news posts for OperationFlashpoint2.org.
OperationFlashpoint2.org as you see it – is a front end for promoting community events, services, alerts, and announcements not to mention to provide a focal point for “Heroes” that wish to help further develop their community.
The community, previous to this front end, has been through several website iterations and which has lead to the deleting of some of the older news posts. There has however been a constant community service during that time that maintains to this date a fast and detailed record of OFP2 and Community News from Tue Aug 19 12:11 EDT 2008. You can view for your self the archives here, the archives are currently 41 messages big as of Dec 19th 2008.
