Posted by: UAEfalcon in Website Announcements on April 14, 2016, 11:53:48
This forum is for the community of the Far Shiverpeaks server on Guild Wars 2. To ensure that the forums remain an accessible and welcoming place, the following rules should be adhered to by all members:

1. Be respectful of fellow posters.
2. No spamming of any kind.
3. No 'cheating' threads (report it here or in game)
4. Stay on topic.
5. Don't be a dick...
6. Maximum of 2 consecutive posts on the shoutbox


Violation of the rules shall be judged on an individual basis, though in general there will be a 3 strikes and out policy.

If you have any issues with a post, please report it to a moderator... if you can't be bothered to do this, then it probably isn't bad enough for us to care about.


New Website Host
Posted by: I Am Dansker in Website Announcements on September 28, 2015, 21:47:19
The website has just switched over to a VPS instead of our old shared hosting solution

This has been a long time coming.
The old site was slow and we almost hit our resource cap each month. This month that happened. We hit our 20gb bandtwidth limit, meaning the site was unavailable for about an hour while we got the website imported to the new VPS.

Is the site still unavailable for your buddies?
Since the host changed, the IP also changed, meaning people either have to wait for their DNS to reset, or clear it manually. A guide for flushing your dns can be found here for both Windows and Mac) https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/CKB/How+To+Clear+Your+DNS+Cache
Linux users, i expect you to know how to do this on your own!  :) 

It still doesn't work!
It is very possibly that your computer is using a DNS server that has not yet itself cleared its cache.
If you know how to change your DNS to something like Google DNS, then you can do this (it is most likely better than your default DNS server anyway)
However i wont actually say you should do it, it is just a matter of time before the site works for you again

The new host
First of all, the new host is cheaper, but i think these results speak for themselves


Old siteNew site


The new site also has a 1TB bandtwidth, meaning we shouldn't hit this cap again any time soon :)

There are still some minor issues with the character encodings, but everything seems to work fine


Upcoming changes on TS
Posted by: Goldi in Website Announcements on August 27, 2015, 22:16:33
Upcoming changes that will be activated on Team Speak:
  • FSP Server Group icon have been removed and be "Blank" for now.
  • Permissions to add users to FSP Server Group will be removed from ALL server groups except for Admins on SUNDAY 30/8-15
  • Guild Server Groups will no longer give access to the WvW channels, everyone will have to verify themselves on TUESDAY 1/9-15
  • FSP Server Group will be reset on THURSDAY 3/9-15

Permissions to add users to server group will be removed because:
  • We want everyone to be verified.
  • If they get the server group manually, they'll lose their access when they log off.
  • The chances of spies will be reduced massively.
Please ask if you have any questions.


Teamspeak Verification Through the Website
Posted by: Goldi in Website Announcements on August 08, 2015, 22:41:45
You can now verify yourself on our Teamspeak server using the GW2 API

How does it work?
Once you log onto Teamspeak, you will be greeted with a message containing a unique link that will link your Teamspeak user with your Forum user. This means your access to teamspeak will be linked with your access to the website that currently uses the GuildWars2 API for that.

For a more detailed description, see Help: Teamspeak Integration

Do you get access to my username and password?
No, the only information available through the standard permissions from an API Key is
Code: [Select]
Account Info
 - Account ID
 - Display Name (example: test.1234)
 - World ID
 - Your Guilds

If you have ever used any of the other services, utilizing the GuildWars2 Authenticated API, this is exactly the same.

But i already have access?
If you already have access, you will not see this message and you will keep you access for the time being while the system is being evaluated

So i don't ever have to do this?
Eventually, manual assignment of the FSP Servergroup will be phased out completely in favor of this new automatic system, maybe finally get rid of some of the spies we have had lately?



New Authentication Process
Posted by: I Am Dansker in Website Announcements on May 29, 2015, 12:27:25
At the upcoming reset today, the old authentication process will no longer work and anyone who have not switch over to the API Key system will have to re-authenticate.

You do not have to do this now and can do it when ever you want, however you will lose access to the restricted parts of the forum after reset tonight and will only regain access once you re-authenticate using the API Key system

For help, see Help: Authentication

If you want to know why this is happening, see Heads Up - Authorization Process Changes

If you have any issues, feel free to ask for help in this thread, as you do not need restricted access to post in this thread
