How To Handle Troublemakers On Your Forum

Thursday, May 25, 2017


Running a community has its downsides. One of them is that it requires moderation. During your journey toward success, you'll encounter a ton of great people, but also some trouble makers who want to harm your community. Since such bad individuals are a true poison to online communities like yours, let's see what are the best ways to handle them (get rid of them!) effectively.

Just to make it clear, we won't be talking about light moderation or how to ask someone to calm down a bit. We're talking giant trolls, serial posers and sock puppets. Brace yourselves!!

FreeOrion v0.4.7

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

The folks over at freeorion.org released a new stable a few days ago. I gave it a quick try tonight in order to see if it’s more stable and optimized than v0.4.6 and it definitely is. v0.4.6 felt sluggish during some games and turn processing was slow most of the time, even in a small galaxy. This one feels all right and seems to be properly optimized. 


Brood War Patch 1.18

Saturday, May 6, 2017

If you’re a StarCraft fan, this is probably old news. Patch 1.18 makes Starcraft free to play and compatible with modern operating systems. You read it well! You don’t need your old scratched CDs or your old computer running Windows 98. That’s the biggest update since 1.08. (1.08 was released in May 2001 and thoroughly reworked the game balance)

1.18 also integrates a revamped Battle.net that works. It’s still being developed, so new features (like profiles) similar to what we can find on Battle.net for other Blizzard games are to be expected. We should be able to discover them between now and the time Remastered is released. 

Starcraft Remastered

Thursday, March 30, 2017

Can't believe they finally decided to go ahead and give Starcraft the HD treatment it deserves. 20 years later, we'll be able to enjoy this masterpiece once more on modern systems without having to fiddle with weird plugins and hacks to make it work right. Also, they're assuring us that game mechanics won't change. Cool! :)

Starcraft has been one of the first PC game I've ever played and I still consider one of my favorites, 2 decades and thousands of hours later.

They didn't announce yet how much it'll cost but who cares, this is Starcraft Remastered... TAKE ALL MY MONEY!!!

They updated Starcraft.com, so check it out and visit often to make sure you don't miss any update: https://starcraft.com

Can't wait!

Why I Switched Back From WordPress to Blogger

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Switching between blog platforms is now a yearly thing for me. It seems I can’t satisfy myself with one single platform on the long run. I’ve been enjoying WordPress for a while, until I figured it contained a ton of cool features I didn’t need after all. I gladly traded these bells and whistles for increased simplicity and ease of use. 

I’m going to share what made me ditch WordPress and move back to Google’s Blogger.
