The forum ranking icons (based on post count) has been updated.


Normal members have had their post count limit increased to 20. And coder/devs have their limit increased to 30.

Also, a post merge time check has now been implemented. If a user makes a post right after their own post in a particular thread (within a 5 minute time frame), the posts are merged automatically (separated by a horizontal rule). This is done to prevent spam and to prevent double (or more) consecutive posting in the "Make it to 10000" thread.

I was able to get the mariokartwii.com domain name! Heart  Check it out! - http://mariokartwii.com/

The plan on what to do with the domain name~
  • Have the forums reside at mariokartwii.com (instead of mkwii.com)
  • Any requests to MKWii.com will be redirected to mariokartwii.com
  • Make a new site banner/logo, probably change the colors to black+blue (we been on black+orange for awhile, but might let it ride out for rest of October because of Halloween). If you guys want to make me a site banner (Waltress added on it? lol), make one and I'll take a look.

I'm really busy with work at the moment, so hopefully in a week, I can get that done. I hardly get any free time at the moment with so many obligations going on currently. So whenever I do get that done, it's obvious the forums will be under maintenance during that time.

When I first started the original mkwii.org forums back in Feb 2018, one of my goals was to eventually get both the domains of mkwii.com and mariokartwii.com. Goal accomplished (:

Yesterday, the Site was under a severe DDoS attack and other Malicious attacks. Due to the result of these Malicious attacks a new VPS "Image" had to be deployed using the most recent backup before yesterday. That would be from October 23rd. Because the backup is a few days old, you will notice that we have "traveled" back in time to October 23rd.

Not a big deal though as there was only 1 post outside the "Make it to 10,000" thread. It was from a new user (he/she will need to remake their account again if desired) who posted a question about adding the km/h text to Stebler's Speed-O-Meter code. Other than that, nothing of "value" was lost.

Due to the attacks, I've also upgraded the Debian OS, and all additional software required to running the forums. Also, the forum software itself was updated. Various config files are custom tweaked to help mitigate possible future attacks.

Apologies for the wait time, IRL things caused a hold up to solving this in a quicker fashion.
