Author Topic: "Status Check!"  (Read 17446 times)

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.

I've been thinking that it would be nice to have a Wiki page the current status of several of the ever-changing aspects of the fs2_open community...

...A new build comes out... A web site that everyone uses goes up / down... et cetera...
A nice summary with all of the constantly changing updates compact & in one place would be nice.

Here's the idea, let me know what you think...

UPDATE: For a recently updated list of fs2_open downloads, please visit the FS2 Status Page on the Wiki.  Located below is the status of several FS2 servers, checked in real-time.

Server Status Check

Multiplayer
     FS2NetD web sitehttp://fs2netd.game-warden.com/
Community
     game-warden.comhttp://www.game-warden.com/
                   
If there are other FS2-related sites that have temporary or periodic technical issues, let me know - I'd be happy to add them to the status list above

This is really good. I took the liberty and created the page on FS wiki (it's under Getting Started=>Relevant Links). It's not an exact copy right now though and could probably use some better formatting.  :)

I think this should be stickied.

Thanks, ME$$ENGER.  I'm in the process of adding to the wiki page that you created.  I'll be adding the status remarks there as well (ONLINE/OFFLINE).  I hope you don't mind if I end up renaming/moving the page to something a little more descriptive.  Thanks for your work on that.

Eventually, I'll re-edit my top post above to only link to the wiki... the wiki can be edited by everyone.  My top post above - only by me.

Also, here's another plan for the future... to write a simple php script that will check if fs2netd, game warden, and other online servers are online in real-time.  It should make the wiki status page a bit more up-to-date and automated, for the most part.  Here's how it'll work:
The online/offline status will be displayed as an image.  That image will actually be a script that checks if the server in question is online.  If it is, it'll will "return" the online image, otherwise the offline image.
...Of course, we can all just click on the link to find out whether it's online... but I like to make life complicated.  :D

Id like to point out that in addition to GameWarden there is also Sectorgame and hades-combine that are part of the community. I dont know if nodewars counts, as I dont see what it has to do with FS in particular...

Good point, though I wasn't trying to exlude any web sites.  Frankly, the only reason I had listed game-warden was because I knew that while they're experiencing domain name issues at the moment, that the extra link could help people get over there via ip.

Hi everyone, I've edited my top post above to include a real-time status check on FS2 servers. :cool:    I moved the links I had posted for several files over to the FS2 Status Page on the Wiki, so that we can all edit them when they become outdated.

 
hammered:this page isn't stickied but your efforts are much appreciated :D
Well I appreciate that you feel that it's stick-able.  ;) Thx m8.

I've stickied this for now, though one of the Admins may wish to move it to multiplay. I'm going to split out the other discussion, not because anyone's doing anything wrong, I'm even going to post in it, but because while this might belong in multiplayer, a thread about the roots of naming conventions should remain here ;)

...Thanks Flipside!  ;) I agree with all of your thoughts - if an admin sees it fit to move it to the new multiplayer board, then that makes sense to me.


Wow.  Extremely cool, man!
Heh, I guess sometimes weird things happen when a topic gets split.  My post above saying "Extremely cool, man!" looks extremely stupid in response to a  :yes:.  But now it looks so funny that I'm a big fan of leaving it that way.  :lol:

good idea

but

once i get the game-warden.com domain working correctly, *hopefully* we shouldnt ever have to worry about servers being down again.

I've got faith man.  We'll get there.  I'm sure we'll all be happy when this thread becomes useless.  Provided that HLP and GW get enough support through donations -- which would aid in getting more stable and robust servers -- then we'll all be able to enjoy fs2 multi a lot more.

Keep up the good work man. :cool:  Don't let me or anyone else annoy you about what's up/down or in between until we actually send in a buck or do something to pitch in.   :yes:

I've moved this to Multiplayer for now, it seems more appropriate there :)

Hopefully this will only need to be stickied temporarily, but it's a handy little reference to have until then. :)
