Seasonal Rugby: Season Six Redux

    It's been over a year now since the last match of Seasonal Rugby was simmed. And a fair old time since the last contract or sign-up.

    And this site is pretty much dead.

    I'm willing to give it one last try though to see if we can get the thing going again.

    My suggestion is to void all the current contracts and start with four teams. Two teams would be put on hiatus until player numbers increase again

    One obvious choice to put on ice would be the Immortals as they were a new team anyway. My second suggestion would be the Sharks as they were struggling most with players.
  2. Arheiner SIA Yates

    Yup, put us on hiatus then if you think you can get 4 teams.
  3. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Actually, we could just stick with the contracts as-is and let the Sharks and Immortals contracts become invalid.

    Then, the residual Sharks and Immortals players that are left can sign up for the 4 remaining teams, make the standard much better and given the season will be much shorter due to fewer teams, we should just blast through it quite quickly.

    That assumes that the broadcasting pages still work. Might have to check that out with a friendly or something. Not exactly teeming with posts on the subject though.

    Sharks vs Immortals exhibition match
  5. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Yeah. Why not. It'd be a decent test.

    Oh this is awesome. I'm actually on holidays at the moment but I'll be back this weekend, so let me know then if I can do anything (send out emails, make sure uploads work etc). Site is extremely dead right now given how long it's been since either of us simmed and the NRL season ending but I think it still has a potential user base that would largely come back if there was something to come back to.
  7. Arheiner SIA Yates

    Even then, there's a good chunk of the base that probably checks if anything's happening every now and then (Can't say I do anything on here any more but I'll check the front page every day just in case)
  8. morgieb MC Burridge

    Yeah I'll generally check New Posts a couple of times every day, but rarely post, because there's often no point.

    This is great, the timing is impeccable, I log back in for the first time in months and within a week, some form of simming promised!!!
  11. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    I've simmed a game... Let's see how this goes.
  12. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    You could fix the Admin CP. That'd be useful.
  13. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah we've been getting hacked regularly and that section seems particularly vulnerable for some reason. I think I've made it more functional now even if less pretty; let me know if anything doesn't work.

    Did anyone else get the account suspended page last night? Related to the simming?
  15. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Nah, related to the hacking. The host took the site down for a bit to try and help me close the security hole.

    The hacking hasn't had any affect on the forum/members other than the original pop-up ads, but the hackers have been using the site to host phishing content (fake versions of bank sites and amazon etc) in directories they created on the site and then emailing them out. This has been relentless, but hopefully we've found the root of the problem now (fingers crossed).

    Chrome tried to stop me accessing cricsim today
  17. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah it's just a bit slow on the uptake. Should stop doing that soon.
  18. morgieb MC Burridge

    Is anyone else getting images and the like not loading?
  19. Escath LE Schaw

    Yeah, I'm getting a few display issues.

    The official complaints thread now?
