    Hi all!

    Like I said, the changelog last week was going to be incredibly small. It was so small, that it wasn't even worth mentioning anything happened.

    This dev log will list the changes for the last two weeks:

    Forum changes (Cobi):
    • Added Minecraft ranks to the forums
    • Added PushBullet integration to the forums
    • Can now access the forums using Tapatalk (Android, iOS, WiMo)
    • Tweaked the donor store to be more more clear regarding clans
    • Updated forum mood icons
    • Fixed anonymous posting
    General changes (SnoFox & Cobi):
    • Our own URL shortener: http://mcr.af/ used by ChatManager to shorten your huge links
    • Worked on a moderator-oriented plugin
    • Improved ChatNinjas ability to catch advertisers
    • Other behind the scenes activities to aid in server performance/cleanliness
    • Bought Super Smash Bros 3DS, and hurt my thumbs playing it
    BattleManager3 changes (SnoFox):
    • Reworked Demon
      • Instead of 32 fireballs that you'd likely murder yourself with, you are given 4 fireballs that regenerate by 1 every 5 seconds. You can only launch one fireball a second. The fireballs can no longer be deflected by enemy players.
      • Changed to only launch fireball on right click; not left click
    • Nerfed Sniper
      • Config is as follows
        • 0-9 blocks between you and your target: 2 hearts (down from 4 hearts)
        • 10-19 blocks: 7 ½ hearts
        • 20-29 blocks: 10 hearts
        • 30-39 blocks: 16 ½ hearts
        • 40+ blocks: 40 hearts
      • Armor IS accounted for
      • Replaced enderpearl stacks with a single regenerating enderpearl
    • Nerfed Zeus
      • Replaced iron pickaxe with a wooden pickaxe (nerfing melee)
      • Fixed a bug allowing you to regenerate up to 10 Lightning Rods
      • Added a slight delay in the lightning strike on your enemies
      • Lightning was made slightly inaccurate; you are not guaranteed a direct every time you click on a player
      • Added an immediate lightning strike on the Zeus calling forth lightning (giving away position)
    • Nerfed Vampire
      • Replaced enderpearls with one regenerating enderpearl
      • Fixed a bug where sticks and wooden swords were no longer doing extra damage to the vampire
    • Buffed Brawler
      • Given a stone pickaxe (look out, world!)
    • Nerfed Soldier
      • Fixed bug that allowed you to get up to 12 Grenades

    *phew* Not bad for a Sunday's work?

    Don't worry guys, this time Zeus actually has been nerfed. Before it was all a joke.

    Totally makes me want to ask about how Smash Bros is. But seeing that'd be a bit off topic, I'm curious how the URL shortener works as I've never really thought about those before.

    My *guess* is that you'd get a domain, redirect it to a PHP script (or Python if you wanna get classy) on a regular web server with an .htaccess file that uses mod_rewrite (or something similar) to look into a database for the short URL and the long "equivalent", then redirects the client to the long URL?
