Meh, maybe Monday. Dumb admins should have called ghost busters. Then it would have worked, somehow I think. Im just rambling, ignore me im going to sleep. Probably shouldn't watch scifi and eat sugary food before I got to bed. Gonna have weird dreams.

Lol you still believe they are going to make that deadline like they did the last 6 times?

They will probably add another 24 hours once these 13 hours are up. And so on and so on...

In the meantime you can join IRC and talk with other players XD

(I'm still really excited for the new age though... Hope for many new features! And because of these delays it will probably work smoother)

The only fault that RoC admins did was giving a dead line as start..
I think if they just said, we're working on a new RoC code, and when it's ready we're going to launch it, it wouldn't have been such a _fail_ because no one would have been waiting something from them at one day..but giving a deadline, and not working as they said (for many times) is what would make me say: Fail.

With so many delays , i think the Admins forgot to mention that the age wont be going forward :P

I think most of the players will have lost faith in the Admins/mods by now...

But then ... Do the Admins/Mods really give a crap?

RoC should have just had a mini 1 or 2 week age if the admins could not bring Age 4 beta up.

EPIC FAIL indeed.

Deadlines are not something that we've historically been good with. I had suggested we start with the concurrent beta to avoid this, but I was overruled. It helps that really only two people are working on the new code, compared with the size of staff in ages past. From what I hear, Tapchou felt pressured into a deadline by players. This is not something that should be rushed. Live and learn, I guess.

Also, keep in mind, beyond just the new code, there's also a new server (new mail service, new DNS service, changing directory structures from what we're familiar with), there's also the fun aspect of working with CodeIgniter which isn't something Tapchou was familiar with. snoop brought a professional standard for coding to bear in this project, so there's that aspect to consider too. Where bugs used to be a fun diversion during prior betas, they're actually frowned upon now and they've attempted to fix them all before launching. Oh and just for kicks, there's also an entirely new administrative crew, as I stepped down, as did fury and venge.

TL;DR: There's more than just a few new files in here. Everything is new, including the people running the show.

Hmm, theirs just one small problem with IrC, That the "Chat" button seams to be missing at the top of the forum browser bar!

Mr Carnage sir, Can we have the chat button back plz :)

Hi Thom,
I don't know what you just said.
But the only way I ever used chat was from the button that used to be their, but has mysteriously vanished.

GiveUpAlready.com FAQ
Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

How do I get there?
There are a number of ways you can get onto the chat server.

Possibly the simplest way is to click the Chat link in the navigation bar. This will open the java irc client and, assuming you have java installed will connect you to the server. From there you just need to follow the instructions to enter a room.

You can also get your own IRC client software, one popular program being mIRC available as shareware from www.mirc.com.

To connect to the irc server using mIRC, run the program and then from the status window type:

/server irc.giveupalready.com:6667



And when I use your forums other link I get,

Though the way I see it is that it's probably for the best, as I'm a complete dick, and speaking to me on chat would just make me look a total and utter prick :)

I'm afraid I won't be getting the stimulus package map set. $15 for a download is too much. Anyways back on topic..I hope everything is fixed soon. *Sends redbull to admins*

well why not have some speed rounds? while the age4 beta is fully coded?

sounds like a fair idea.. also i know it will take some time switch files... :/

Alpha is an actual defined term i believe. I think its a beta, but not open to the public.

Carnage
30th March 2010, 07:40 AM
Traditionally software has several release phases:
1) Alpha, usually the first released version; this dosn't mean its open to the public; just more people than the development team, dosent mean its private either.
2) Beta, comes after alpha and generally includes a larger test audience.
3) Release Candidate, this is a version which the developers believe is good enough to be released proper.
4) Gold, this is used to refer to the 'final version'

Stole this from a woman in a different age :) She wont mind.

A Brain Fart *ROC Admins, the age that wouldnt start*
Rate this Entry

4 men..
a room
laptops


Snoop walks over to the window, his breath clouds the cold pane of glass
*DAMN IT ANDYT*
his fist pounds on the windowsill
his head swings around

"we MUST START this age"

a high pitched squeeky voice awnsers in a casual manner
"ehhhhhhhhhhh i dont know Snoop, i like to watch them all wonder, and tweak the game play of the top 5 GuA posters"
exclaims as he
scratches his belly and shoves another chip into his mouth

a man reclining in his chair, feet up on a table, laptop on his lap, laughs coily
he looks out from under his unibrow
*oh we shall start it* and he laughs some more

andyt, venge and fury turn slowly and look at Snoop

*we SHALL START it like no other beginning of an age before*

a mouse runs across the old wood floor, drafty from years of wear
andyt puts another chip in his mouth not taking his eyes off of snoop
the crunch echos through the room, crumbs fall down onto
his shirt, without falter he reaches down, picks up the bigger of the crumbs and
without missing a beat, shoves it in his mouth, he sips his beer

"i gotta pee" says fury, and he walks off to the bathroom unzipping before he has even made it out of the living room


back in the livingroom, venge and snoop relize that andyt has spaced out once again and throw
a twinkie at him

"OUCH, what was that for" he glares at the two, "dont be mean!" he says as he rubs his head, then pics up the twinkie from the floor and proceeds to eat it

fury comes back in from the bathroom, zipper down, toilet paper stuck to his shoe
"Snoop, you know how were going to start the age?"

Snoop giggles and says "no, but look, PHNX thinks were messing with them"
they all laugh and gather round venge' laptop
"dude, tweek the sabbing code" Snoop laughs and shoves another chip in his mouth, spilling the crumbs on Fury' back
"no no" andyt giggles "next time he Posts, have him Neg repped, from everyone!"

they all grab their bellies and laugh hysterically

"NO NO NO, omg wait" says snoop, inhaling deeply as he tries to talk through the laughter " make it so when he posts on GuA
he gets in only one time, all the time and ban him!"

they all fall to the floor in laughter
"wait wait, this is even better" says venge" have pig start losing rep, randomly, in the thousands!!!"

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA is all u can hear from the room as the men sit around and laugh

"i wet myself" says fury as he looks down at the spot on the front of his pants

"DAMN IT, this is serious" yells Venge.
"we must start this age, and soon, so when, and how"..he stares off...smiling a bit...his eyes lost in the shadows of the room

"ENOUGH!!" Snoop slams his hand down on the table, chips fly everywhere, venge looks horrified and scurries to save the flailing chips, giving fury a harsh look.

he spins around and grabs his laptop, "everyone now! we.....START IT!" Snoop hair dramatically falls in front of his left eye, fury pauses and then motions to the others to do the same

snoop grabs his bag of chips and laptop and hurries to the kitchen table, the light swings from the ceiling, casting an eerie shadow to and frow on the wall and floor
fury and venge stare at each other and relize the other 2 are not there

fury throws a twinkie at snoop
andyt looks down..and mumbles something about cupcakes and not twinkies
venge motions for snoop to come to the kitchen

Tap...where the hell is Tap...

FLUSHHHHHHHHHHH

Tapchou canters out from the bathroom hands on hips, proud of his bathroom efforts
"andyt!!" yells Snoop, his head spins around to the left,
"Snoop!! grab yor laptop, ive decided to start it NOW" his head spins back to the right, "HURRY!"

the light in the kitchens swings slower now, all the men have their laptops ready

they sit.
Crunch...Crunch...Crunch....

"fury...can u STOP eating for one moment" says andyt as he looks out from his unibrow
"im sorry, you know how nervous i get when we do this, i need to eat"
he shoves another chip into his mouth and hurridly wipes the crumbs from his face

"okay, now we all need to push enter at the same time, servers go online and we start the game" Tapchou looks at the others as he exercises his index finger
venge cracks his knuckles and brushes his hair off to the side dramatically and purses his lips

"cant i just play a bit more" fury inquires, "HEY! lets take away Vrasp's tbg every other turn" he giggles to himself, everyone else just glares at him, and watches him shove a handful of chips in his mouth.

venge stares off following the shadow on the floor made by the light fixture swaying to and fro
his eyes glass over

fury dances around in his seat, crossing and uncrossing his legs frantically while grimmacing

"okay lets do this" says Snoop as a hush falls over the room..heholds his index finger up and smiles at the rest of the men surrounding the table,fury dancing, venge drooling and Tapchou staring off into some sort of space

1.......2........

Tap gets up and runs to the bathroom " i GOTTA peeeeeeeeeeeeee"

Snoop slams his fist on the table
"DAMN IT DAMN IT DAMN IT, we have been trying to do this since Mid March, REMEMBER this was supposed to be the *START and surprise everyone age*" Snoop glares at andyt
venge falls to the floor stil starring, he looks at fury, fury shoves his face in his bag "i dont know nuttin Snoop"

" i cant take this damn it!!!!!"
Snoop runs outside and throws himself onto his knees, fists up to the air he yells as loud as he can to the night sky


Tapchou comes to the door with his bag of chips

"Does this mean i can screw with the top 5 again?" throws a handful of chips in his mouth and wipes the grease off on ihs pants

"Snoop??...you okay...."


Snoop turns around and shuts the door....


Crunch.........

I'll start when everyone has givenupalready >_>
