Site redesign finished

Okay so finally my site get redesigned for about the 4th times if i recall it correctly lol, and hopefully this time the design looks much nicer compared to the old design. And obviously since i’m not a designer (and can’t use photoshop either or any other graphic editing tools) so i think compared to a design made by a designer this new layout is nothing (and obviously the color scheme used is going to be a lot better than this). Although i think this design looks good compared to before, but everyone has their own opinion … but anyway, let’s keep that aside shall we? because by posting this, i just want to highlights the most important things that has been changed

1. Unlike the previous comment system, the new comment support Threaded comment which means you can reply directly to the previous commenter and your reply will be shown directly below it
2. The new comment system now displayed in descending order, and so … new comment will be displayed first while the old comment displayed last
3. The Contact page now using Recaptcha … to (perhaps) reduce the spam delivered to my inbox (i’m sorry for this, because i’ve been receiving lots of spam to my inbox lately)
4. Utilize CoralCDN completely to serve static files such as images to reduce load (although this is just a small site and i rarely use images, but hey it’s still better right? than serving everything from this small vps) :D …

As for the other things, well … since i’m using various free icons from the web, and also with the help from my friend on creating that cursed rounded corner (so it’ll looks web 2.0–ish … at least that’s what they think), i’m going to create a separate page to give them a proper credits :)

With the above said, and redesigning site is also finished … now i can continue on writing new post :D … and my next post would be using CoralCDN to save your bandwidth and … also resources perhaps :)

Goodbye Repacks …

I’m pretty sure some of you already knew that this might be happen sooner or later, and so i think it’s best for me to write a new post explaining about this. Well it has been almost two years since the first time ever i created a Repack for World of Warcraft based on Mangos, and as many people said All good things (or bad things if you define my repacks are bad) eventually come to an end. And so in this post i want to announce that there’ll be no more repacks made by myself. Although i’m pretty sure you have noticed that too, because the last repack that is made by myself directly is the old Reaper Mangos 5472 for WoW 2.3.3 that is released more than one year ago, and since then all the repacks are made by Oatman, Colt45, Darkened Linux and Erytheia

Ever since i’ve created my first repack (well i don’t know about what repack is back then when i first created a repack and so this part deserved a new paragraph), i’ve met with many wonderful people, intelligent people that helped others to create their own wow server by helping them directly (via remote access perhaps) or by simply leaving comments here. And so in this post i want to thank you all for helping me answering all kind questions posted by various commenters

As i said before, back then when i started creating repack, i don’t know those thing called repack, and that is simply because back then when i created my first post on how to set up your own wow private server using Mangos and judging from the questions asked there, it seems some people still find that guide is difficult for them and so i created another guide and this time i included images to make things easier to read, and also separated it into four posts (Part One – Installing MySQL, Part Two – Configuring Mangos, Part Three – Configuring Mangos for LAN, Part Four – Setting up Apache Webserver) but still some people confused on how those server related things work, and so i decided to help them directly by connecting to them via Remote Desktop / Remote Assistance to configure everything directly free of charge. But because that is just too much time consuming and so i decided to create a simple Batch file to make installing and updating a little bit easier and that’s also mark as my first repack release based on Mangos, called Reaper Mangos 4488. And that’s how this repack thing started (i hope i don’t bored you with my repack history lol)

And so … once again i want to thank you all the site visitors for leaving comments, using my repacks and other repacks, and also helping others to set up their own World of Warcraft Private server. And also special thanks to Oatman, Colt45, Darkened Linux and Erytheia for their repacks. And also to everyone at Mangos Project and also TrinityCore for making such wonderful emulator despite they don’t want it to be called emulator and also Unified Database Forums for the database and also Scriptdev2 for their script :)
