  1. Hello I am making this topic because the last one still shows up everywhere on the forum you just can't click it https://runescape.salmoneus.net/forums/topic/368659-permanent-removal-of-adam/?do=findComment&comment=4171940 Anyways where did we land on this?
  2. https://osrs.joeys.app/ Live log of Sal's OSRS clan events (if someone with the Runelite plugin is online!) Remembered Common Sense set up something similar for the release of Oldschool Runescape here. this one's live with some cool plugin shenanigans going on in the background
  3. For reference, if it’s a computing issue e.g. you’re paying $50/mo for a single VM driving Sal’s and it couldn’t handle me trying to upload a file several times within the rate limiting rule, locked up and there’s no way to just block the request from the shard’s compute power — I’ll 100% chip in $25 a month or whatever to help out. I would love to do that, you’ve been doing a huge thing for forever (and I don’t think direct donations would garner any attention, unless?) and I’ve been learning distributed networking at scale for cheap. I’m working on boring elliptic curve SSL crypto TLS1/1.3 (I guess) for my home network to open up my 80/443 ports. I’ve been relearning c and heap memory stuff hooking up a bunch of $2 esp8266s on my wifi - they’re just blasting udp packets about temperature and light levels, but I have this “cool” websocket protocol I’ve been working on that links up those arduinos and anyone on localserver via tcp socket Edit: Honestly - I’ll spend my own time to help fix the rate limiting problem in any possible way - static screenshots of the cloudflare config and me debugging, asking my startup’s infrastructure guy, going through stackoverflow. I promise I have no ill will here, I know there was a lot going behind the scenes. It would be a great learning experience for me. I don’t know how much ad revenue you get from old school but the oldschool game is still very active 10 years from launch and the old ~100k members come back sometimes. The wiki probably stole the limelight of guides, but it has no community. Bob has the “Sal’s Realm” discord running with a ~hundred daily active users. They run masses. Adam sucks, he does nothing. Please remove him. My GitHub activity, we’re a Django/Redis/react shop running on AWS lambdas/ec2s/elasticsearch. I think sal’s is php/nginx? I admit I’m young but I would love to help if there’s an inkling there in Sal’s head. much love otherwise, sayonnayayara posting from my phone is painful
  4. Hey, I already made a status update about this and spoke with Yuan, I’m aware he’s aware and Sal’s busy and probably married with children but I figured I’d post this here just for future reference for everyone People get banned (Micael Fatia recently, me just now, me in 2018, a few others) with a Cloudflare 1006 response which is a rate limiting challenge/managed challenge configuration, like “user 1 clicked a button too quickly, do X in response” and the X action is configured to be a flat ban from what I can tell. I’m posting from my phone - I got banned on my home IPv4 address, but if I was on my phone, like Mic was, those have IPv6 addresses which are globally unique. Can’t do much then, your phone is perma-banned from sal’s, you need a new phone, or cloudflare has a massive outage/reset My situation: I was uploading 180kb file of Adam for a status update and the site hung, so I closed out my browser and waited 30 seconds or so, opened a new window and tried to do the same action, then ban l I 1000% get rate limiting, we do it at my job so we never get hit. I just think there might be a 1-hour-of-effort-fix somewhere in there if Sal’s still up to it. I totally get not being, 20 years into hosting a site
  5. can I buy a custom pip like adam did

      @Yuanrang The scenario you describe - clicking a button too quickly - is the first item I linked to, "Rate Limiting".

      I am a software engineer and we use Amazon Web Services for our load balancing, so I can only give you 90% of the solution. If you look at what "Rate Limiting Rules" are, they handle users pressing buttons too quickly.

      Here is an example:

      Rate limiting rule #1
      If incoming requests match:
      http.request.uri.path eq "*"

      Choose action: Block
      Duration (mitigation timeout): 10 minutes
      Requests: 1
      Period: 10 seconds+
      With the same value of (characteristics):

      • Data center ID (included by default when creating the rule in the dashboard)
      • IP
      • Headers > User-agent

      If you read the above example, and look into the Rate Limiting Rules set in the Cloudflare configuration, I imagine you will find the root cause of the issue. I am guessing the ACTION is set to a CHALLENGE or MANAGED_CHALLENGE when it should just be BLOCK.

      Sal was correct in configuring the Rate Limiting Rule as it does handle the scenario you describe, I think the ACTION is the only issue. If there are scenarios of bots or otherwise bad actors that he needs to ban, that would be with a separate, more complex Rate Limiting Rule.

      @Zooey I actually must have missed your entire first comment, and even Adam?'s first comment. I cannot recall seeing or reading those two at all. Sorry! :facepalm:

      For the record, I assume your assessment is (mostly) right and I would have incorporated a fix if I could, but as far as I know, only Sal has that kind of access, so I am powerless to go in and fix things, even if I knew how to fix it. I am unsure if LIlshu has that kind of access, but I suspect he might not either. :sad:

      I thought that'd be the likely scenario. Oh well, thanks for reading!

  9. Adam is a bad man, he hurts me in the discord they're definitely gone, the casual chat is mostly oldies and a handful of new recruits bob's found. it's cool to see where everyone's at in life, except adam
  10. yes if you reply to my message on IRC, I sent you a friend request EDIT: but we can't unban him here, definitely not here this is @oranguwang's personal erotic memoir website now only meant for his reading and his alone
  11. Mega congrats, this is huge unt- until they raise 200,000,000 to the next logical step ---- the base 16 cap! 7FFF,FFFF,FFFF,FFFF, or 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 (9 quintillion for us taking notes)
  12. So 99 is 13,034,420 and 120 is 104,273,167 you cut nearly TEN TIMES more than necessary and you are not playing Enbyus's woodcutting-based bingo game?? (mega grats!)
  14. never seen Succession but I just rewatched TD S1. succession worth getting into as a newbie?
  15. @Sajoh Are you on the daily discord chat? I can't find you but I'd love to hear from you about stuff like this. There's lobbying for a general gaming chat channel. I played Twilight Princess all the way through ("as a kid" sounds weird? but was that really over a decade ago??) and I haven't 100%ed any Zelda games past that. Your post makes me really want to try out the remaster that @n3wb (sorry, I don't know his forum name, we've chatted about it on discord) has been playing. I think he hit 100% on the Switch remaster last weekend. Seeing all these teasers looks cool but I *really* want a Twilight Princess remaster. The cel shading of everything Wind Waker et. post looks cool but TP holds a special place in my heart. I still have Midna's theme memorized, thanks random airport pianos Discord invite link: https://discord.gg/D2xq3GJEwM (I hated Discord and still do, but @Adam? is really good at what he does and it's fun to chat with likeminded peeps.)
  16. good work iloveboys449 u are my idol
  17. I think you present some very valid points, but when you read them all out it sounds like you may be cherrypicking and have a background history with Dwarrior (perhaps unrelated to his ban, you have shared lots of what I thought was private staff-only member history here..) and I wonder if you are not being truly impartial? I think the man that acts the same all his life is a fool - but the man who listens to those around him, his equals, who knows? Maybe he might make some friends? "A teenager, while short-sighted, is not that dumb." Hahaha oh my gosh dude. I know I'm a year or two younger than Dwar but I had my head crushed from decisions I made on this website when I was seventeen here. Please put yourself in not-all-seeing-Yuanrang's-shoes for just a second. "because they are dead to us", who is the "us" in this sentence? Back in my day Don, Lilshu, Xaria, any admin never just called people dead banned or no. What on earth, man? EDIT: I appreciate your verbosity but I have a job - if you don't agree with me could you reply in one-to-three paragraphs please? Word limit to 500, TeX? I'd love to chat with you like a real person.
  18. I think ideally internet warning systems are used to protect people and I'm not sure who is being protected from Dwarrior at this point by keeping him banned
  19. I have a single TMZ episodes saved (`f u def`) in eleven locations, spread across the globe. They are my horcruxes.
  20. As someone who's always been absent from the background scenes, I'm curious to what degree (and in what cases) a ban is upheld over time If someone has 7 infractions for being obnoxious, isn't there some kind of of "statute of limitations" that logically should play forward - or maybe "could" where you have a community like this, where our relationships largely already exist and bans may begin to exclude people based on mistakes they made in their childhood. I'd understand with something serious like pornography or threatening members. I'm aware too people could have bothered staff to have their warn levels decreased, but that always felt like such an ask and nepotism incarnate to me I know communities that would automatically decrease warn levels over time.. It's been almost 12 years since Dwarrior was banned. It seems almost childish (or dare I say, like holding a grudge?) to say no I won't let you back in because you bothered me when you were 16. Are we a golf club? We played a video game.. from an outsider's perspective. Those are my two cents after reaching out to Dwar and inviting him.
  21. Please host this somewhere safer, thank you, hugs and kisses
  22. fishee joined the discord we are saved guys
