  1. I’m coming into this late and I’m going to apologise for the lack of help I’ve supplied (visibly). I took the decision to take a step back. I was leaving as I had no interest in the game but @InfestLithium @Boom115 amongst other showed me it was the people rather than the game ghat was important.

     

    You have no idea the friendships I’ve struck up here, purely based on a game. To the extent I will be making a visit to the states to see @Boom115and his family and I’ve invited them here to stay. I wan’t to meet up with @InfestLithiumand @GRILL and others. It’s strange how you strike up a relatiobship with people you have never met.

     

    However, I have always been about taken care of the backend (server) and helping when i was needed and always in converse with the team. If anyone has ideas that can be implemented and things fixed which are broken, I’m only to happy to fix.

     

    If we need to implement or remove things, then we should. How do we get better, how do we get people onboard? Our SEO needs to be addressed but maybe we should make a “site” rather than just a forum? Maybe we need constant news feeds updated all the time. We did try but we can’t do ut ourseves and the help was/is limited. Maybe we need toreach out to the big YouTubers for link backs and mentions that started their careers here. Maybe we need to eat some humble pie and accept that we are just not that important within the community anymore? Maybe all that people want / need is on YouTube.

     

    I for one think we need a custom page built with every single easter egg, from every game/map as walkthroughs and videos.

     

    I’m not extremely active but I’m not far away and we can all make this work with some hardwork and help from our members.


  2. I just switched BOIIII on for the first time this weekend, played a bit of blackout and a couple of lobby games of BOTD and I'm OK with the game and the guns etc. I wasn't expecting much and I'm happier with what I see than I thought I would be. 

     

    I'm not going to be playing it every night of the week for a few hours before bed but I'm back in the game for a while anyway,. I'll be getting a few games in with the boys. Need to figure out the locations of everything but what was intriguing me, was why everyone tends to go up to the catwalk area after getting out of the starting room? Why not go to the first dog room down to your right and then through the gate to the power switch? Seemed to me like a strange choice?


  3. CoDz youtube was linked to my gmail at one point and no longer seems to be the case and recovering it is a complete nightmare (if not impossible). I'm around to help with anything and they lads know that. Work takes priority of course but I ain't someone that backs out on round 30 because of downs or because it's past my bedtime

    Jeez man I joined the site like 6 years ago, time flies hey. Miss the good old days haha

     

    Yer still around like most of us but just not as active, does that say something about the site, the game or us as individuals? For me it's the game, the site is great and so are the people but the site can't be the saviour but will hold fond memories for folk. Stick around though - you are missed along with others.


  5. Apologies for unexpected downtime, I forgot about the server bill needing to be paid. We then got suspended and I needed to wait for cash to clear balance.

     

    it reiterates the reliance on staff paying to keep the kettle on and the importance of donations.

     

    Again apologies, will try and ensure it doesn’t happen again.


  6. Apologies all, I haven't had the time to get deep into this until today but it seems to be the case that local storage v's S3 storage has somehow corrupted profile pictures within the uploads folder and some are missing, some are not some are on S3 some are not and I'm not entirely certain why but it's my fault.

     

    Can you manually update your profile pictures temporarily please?


  7. Apologies for the broken profile images. I moved all images, css, javascript to Amazon s3 storage and I'm also setting up CDN (Content Delivery Network), to improve site performance / speed etc.

     

    Most files have transferred but an issue with profile pictures has occurred, I have a couple of system errors within Invision that I have raised a ticket about and I'm confident they are related to the pictures not transferring but it may not be. This is being investigated and a solution expected soon.


  8. Just a complete update to be honest and making data retention user requested more stringent. We'll most likely have to send an email out before the 25th May asking users if they still wish for us to contact them. If not, they'll no longer receive communication from us but that is really only for European members (impossible to distinguish - well not "impossible" just very labour intensive and I haven't got the time).


  9. Look at it which way you like to be honest, I'm personally finding it a drag on my resources at work at the moment to make sure we are compliant. The data protection rules have been needing an update for some time and long overdue. 

     

    Anyone that holds information about you (in Europe anyway legally) and morally in the rest of the world should be held accountable for any of that data. What it does with that data and how it protects that data (however minimal) from peering eyes. So we are going full https on this site, introduced two step authentication to make your data more secure. Emails and password can be sold on the dark web and it can have a knock on effect elsewhere, that could have repurcussions financially. 

     

    If the breach was here for example, and then sold on. It would be us that were responsible for the data breach and if haven't taken the appropriate steps to make the data we hold more secure, we would be held accountable personally.

     

    We ain't a business but my name is on the domain and breaches of this new act, will be directed towards me and the other admins and to be honest - we need to take action. Additionally, the terms etc. have been updated and as we are hosted in the US, we are primarily a US website we are covered by US law but we also service throughout the world so need to have some form of "protection" both for us an our members and we need to adhere to the relevant laws.


  10. We are making some changes to the site and generally speaking it is to do with security and changes in data collection in Europe with the new GDPR legislation coming into force. 

     

    The first stage of our changes, is that have now introduced two factor authentication. What does it mean?

     

    Quote

    Two Factor Authentication allows members of our community to secure their accounts using an additional layer of security in addition to their normal username and password. Different handlers provide different ways users can protect their account. Users will not be presented with any two factor options unless at least one of these handlers is enabled

    What handlers will be using?

     

    Google Authenticator & Additional security questions.

     

    When will you be promted? When you access the site.

     

    What will require two factor authentication?

     

    Quote
    • Managing Authorized Devices
    • Logging into the front-end from a new device
    • Changing password 
    • The user will also need to re-enter their current password.
    • Logging into the front-end from a known device 
    • This does not apply if the user is logged in automatically because they have used the Remember Me checkbox.
    • Logging into AdminCP
    • Updating two-factor authentication setup 
    • Changing email address 

     

    You will have 3 attempts for authentication success, after which you will be sent a link via email (to the registered email address) to reset two factor authentiication.

     

    If for some reason you cannot reset (such as losing your phone) then the following scenario will apply.

     

    • Send an email with a link to reset two factor authentication set up
    • Contact administrator to manually reset 

     

    We urge you to also setup security questions.

    We have also introduced a new option that is displayed to guests/members regarding our privacy policy, code of conduct, terms of service. We will be asking all members to accept these changes.

    The biggest change to the terms, is that you have the right to request you account to be deleted. The content that is posted belongs to callofdutyzombies.com and remains the property of callofdutyzombies.com - if the account is entirely deleted, it can also delete content which can and will disrupt the flow of a topic / conversation. That is why user deletion will be implemented going forward but it will not include content deletion.

     

    We will do our best to remove any personally identifiable information but we cannot search every post/topic you have made for this information and if it is in a post or topic, then you really shouldn't have gave out personally identifiable information unless you intended to do so.

     

    If you have any difficulties intially with any of the above, please contact us

    Wow, just like Spork I got a notification through my email that I was tagged in a post and, well here I am again aha. I've missed this place and the theories, the days of old. But I think more than that I've missed the people, just like you. I planned on hanging around here through BO3 but my squad kind of did our own thing with solving the EE's and doing them blind, so I just sort of fell out of touch. Just was taking some time to reminisce on the old posts I made here, and wow, the nostalgia hit hard.

     

    Miss you guys :love48:

    Then get yer ass back here @Naitrax
