    I checked out--quite in love with the idea.


    Suggestion though--code description, Small description of what the code does, placed just above the code. For example 'top boundary', I had no idea what it did until i looked at the code.

    Sofia will be going down soon as we're going to be moving off SeanieB's server due to recent issues. Thanks for your services though, Seanie.

    Good idea, why not simply hosting Sofia on SSRG?

    PsychoSk8r offered to host the entire site (Sonic Ring Network), but I'll leave that decision to Armada.

    You could ask Digibase to host. I'm sure Kradorex would be more than happy to host :).

    I also am able to provide hosting, however given the nature of the website I feel it being hosted on ssrg is better, just my two cents.

    Where Soifa is hosted is my decision. I'll tell you all what's going on a bit later.

    NOTE: Sofia is being moved along with the rest of Sonic Ring Network to voice's server. When the domain is pointed there and the DB is put back in, we'll be running again.


    Also, would SSRG like to affiliate with Sofia? I'm going to link to affiliates when the site reopens.

    Sure, just PM me an affiliate logo and I'll put it on.


    Hope the move goes smoothly! It's always a pain with MySQL and whatnot.

    The move is done, and we're online. The same link works as always. Report any bugs you find!

    I have an idea: How about adding scroll bars, so code is not word wrapping?

    That was already implemented in the old code, but I think I overwrote it with the new code. I'll see what I can do.

    and everything but enemy are websites for pills. Everything else is fine but I don't get it why is this happening did Blitz/Selbi post this, did someone else do this or hack into the site? Please fix this.

    Seems that a spambot got through. Sorry about this, if this becomes annoying I might end up considering only allowing members of the SRN forums to submit code to Sofia.

    How the hell did a spambot get through the reCAPTCHA?

    That's what I'm wondering myself.

    They're using the edit function, which doesn't have reCAPTCHA checking.

    Honestly, I find those captchas are rather useless and I ended up writting my own which was just a simple question/answer format "what is 3+2?", that seems to have stopped the wave of spambots attacking the RSN Forums, and since its not a popular target the spammers are none the wiser <_<


    For the record, they were able to blast through the Captchas I tried even when they were practically impossible for humans to pass.

    Well, I'm going to put a simple check in to catch these bots. Apparently the current one has a love affair with only one post. Luckily, it was empty. <_<
