    Dev Tracker

    I added a dev tracker as a block on the right side of the forums. It will keep track of the last 5 dev posts. Clicking on each one will take you to the post on the eq forums.

    Themes Upgraded

    Updated the background images you can choose from up top by clicking on the little image looking icon at the top of the site. I believe all of these are Keith Parkinson artwork. Some lower resolution than others so I had to stretch out some. Each theme has some different backgrounds than the other.

    Themes Upgraded

    I upgraded Titan and Chameleon themes to the latest version. This should fix all the visual bugs from upgrading the forums core to the latest version. I also worked on the email system and it should work fine with sending you emails if people send you a pm here on the forums or other places where it emails you. If you don't get an email, check your email address and make sure it's correct and you can receive email on it. If your email address is correct and you are still not getting emails, PM me the details on when you sent the message or whatever and I can look through the servers mail log to see what happened.

    Thanks for pointing that out. This has been fixed. It was due to the dkp site was still set up to use a bridge to the forums. I deactivated it for now until I can get the bridge script to work properly. You can now change your password.

    They will use your lifetime attendance which isn't listed on the default points page. At the top of the points page, select the drop down box for "Select MultiDKP-Pool:" and choose Overview. Lifetime attendance will be used for the first 30 days and then after that, 30 day attendance will be used.

  12. I found an issue with the bridge the dkp site uses to communicate with the forums user database table. The forums at one point changed up the way it encrypts passwords and the bridge script on the dkp site hasn't been updated to use the same encryption. This should only impact new accounts created recently or people who have changed their password recently here on the forums. I'll fix this soon. I've activated the user registration system on the dkp site and allowed it to send you an email to activate. If you don't have an account on the dkp site yet, go ahead and register. Let me know if it doesn't send you an email and I can activate it for you. Post here if you are not able to log into the dkp site.
  13. Source Note: We’ve updated this piece heavily at the end with Daybreak’s statements and further links. A chain of business connections could have a real and dire impact on Daybreak Games Company following the freezing of company assets by the U.S. government. On April 6th, the U.S. Department of the Treasury targeted several Russian oligarchs and froze their assets due to “destabilizing activities” by these figures (including suspected interference in the 2016 U.S. election). One of the oligarchs so punished was Viktor Vekselberg, who owns the Renova Group conglomerate and its subsidiary, Columbus Nova. Columbus Nova, you may recall, is the parent company of Daybreak Games. The U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control has given Renova and other Russian companies until June 5th to “wind down operations, contracts, or other agreements” involving these figures. Between $1.5 and $2 billion assets from Vekselberg have been frozen as the result of these sanctions. It is unclear if any of Columbus Nova’s assets are part of this. Renova isn’t commenting on the situation, but EverQuest II players and other Daybreak Games users are starting to legitimately worry about the future of their games as this information has come to life. Worth pointing out is that the company announced H1Z1’s PS4 port this morning, which doesn’t seem like the actions of a studio about to go up in flames – but then tell that to the CCP team blindsided at last year’s EVE Vegas. We reached out to Daybreak’s PR last night about the status of Daybreak, its titles, and the Standing Stone Games titles it publishes; we’ll keep you posted when we receive a response. [Updated below.] Update #1 Daybreak issued to Massively OP the following statement stating that it is not in fact owned by Columbus Nova, which should lift more than a few eyebrows: Readers will recall that it was widely reported that investment firm Columbus Nova bought SOE from Sony in 2015. In fact, in the original announcement on February 2nd, 2015, John Smedley himself said exactly that: “Today, we are pleased to announce that we have been acquired by Columbus Nova, an investment management firm well known for its success with its existing portfolio of technology, media and entertainment focused companies.” That wasn’t just Smed talking it up; here’s the original press release, complete with quote from Epstein. Click to reveal 2015 press release from Daybreak The company has seen multiple Columbus Nova representatives cycle through leadership positions in the last three years. It is not clear when exactly Columbus Nova, Daybreak, and Jason Epstein severed ties. As MOP commenters have pointed out, Bloomberg still lists Epstein as a managing partner at Columbus Nova, though Epstein’s personal Linkedin claims he left at the end of 2017. We have reached out to Daybreak again for clarification. -Bree Update #2 Daybreak tells us that its original press statements about Columbus Nova acquiring Daybreak were an error on the part of the company and that it is correcting that error now. “It was current executive chairman Jason Epstein, former senior managing partner of Columbus Nova that acquired Daybreak, not Columbus Nova itself. That distinction was never corrected in the past, so we are correcting that now,” a Daybreak spokesperson told us. MOP commenters have pointed out that a Wikipedia account called Daybreakpr was blocked earlier this month – right around the time the sanctions were announced – for editing the Daybreak wikipedia entry to reiterate the claim that Epstein, not CN, has always owned the company. -Bree Update #3 Daybreak has now apparently deleted the 2015 press release from its servers, as the link we quoted from earlier today is now returning a 404 error. It remains quoted in full above. And as @DkTanic tweeted to us (and ventyred posted in the comments), the Daybreak privacy policy from 2015 also refers to CN as its parent company, which is how we referred to CN in this piece’s original title and slug and which Daybreak told us by email was inaccurate:
