Hello Folks! I just got word from a very busy Sheriff and wanted me to send out an update.

NewSheriffInTown said:

After our server experience a second hard drive failure a couple months ago, a decision was made to shore up Major Command's infrastructure and development pipeline before continuing with updates to the game.

Basically this means that we are moving to a managed server, and we are deploying a method to upgrade the game engine without downtime.

This is a significant restructuring on the backend, but it will make the sever more secure, and deployments of features quicker, further down the line and less glitchy.

Fortunately we have another player on board to help us with this work.

https://www.majorcommand.com/user/andrewminerd/

andrewminerd is helping facilitate the move to the new server, as well as set up a method for seamless game version deployments.

He has also offered to help with coding new features when the time comes, but this will only resume again once we have laid a solid foundation for the server and the deployment of upgrades.

Thanks for letting everyone know peri.

Also, myself and MNatt are busy preparing another donation blitz....this time in addition to asking for your support, we will be reaching out to the internet for more funds. Stay Tuned.

Peri :)

I am hoping they can provide a concise list of what the money will be going towards so people can gain confidence their money will get the site where it needs to be.

Well, I'm setting up the kickstarter page so any suggestions or thoughts will be appreciated! Just messaged me.

Yes....we are ALL very busy...so any extra help is much appreciated and I finally got around to setting up a Kickstarter page....hopefully it will be up next week? Depending on my schedule. The site is based in volunteers so the more people that can contribute in a positive way, the more things we can accomplish has a team. Sheriff has posted a few places where he could use the help. Check out thw forums under "we need your help" and see what you can do while you are waiting.

The money will be used to run the server (now that we moving to a managed server) plus the extra funds will get us more hours of coding. The priority is to get the game stable and less glitchy before we start integrating points...you have to imagine the amount of data that needs to be transferred over...everyone's UDO too...not just points....so a stable system is pertinent to the transfer and not losing information.

Part of the reason of going to a Kickstarter is yes....it is 6 months and we need some outside help. Once it's set up the only ask is that you pass with word out and post the Kickstarter page on your social media profile...hopefully we can reach our goal. Stay tune....hopefully within a week or so. Cheers!

ok, nice to hear. Anyway, we ALL know how busy we are, in my town we say "one guy, one business". What I'm sure is that I dont have even time to check alkl this fancy new sites people are playing and sending invites. I wanted MC to run, I have enjoyed the site for many (MANY) years.

Regarding the "We need your help" forums, 3 are private, the blog has 1 post, multiple volunteers and no task to do, and the Wiki one has 0 posts. So no much to do there
