News / 4 Years of Monkey Dynasty
« on: February 19, 2017, 07:05:24 pm »
It's hard to believe it's been 4 years since we started this project. We've come a long way since then, seen hundreds of thousands of players, a tight knit group of dedicated staff, and an ever evolving community of JD fans. I'd like to thank the players and the staff who've made all of this possible. We couldn't have done it without you all! Here's to another year of fun with all you monkeys.

I'd also like to say that our new prioritizations have been going well and we are finally getting more time for higher priority work. We're excited to see some results from this in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned!

And as always, Kaz still has some fun events in store for you. We'll see you all in game!

News / End of Appeals, Staff Respect, Shifting Priorities
« on: January 31, 2017, 01:58:19 am »
Hey everyone, I've got several big announcements.

First of all, happy Year of the Rooster! I hope you all enjoyed the events hosted this weekend (thanks Kaz!) and rest assured there is some more in store for you. The main point of this post, though, is to update you on some changes we're making in how things are handled. This is all in an effort to shift the time we're spending from administrative work to  more development, events, and more.

Ban Appeals
Beginning in February we will no longer be processing ban appeals or amnesty. It is simply too time consuming and far too large of a distraction and there has been ample time for those who were in need.

Reprioritization
Ceasing appeals is in line with a general shift we will be making in priorities to put overall server development and community engagement above time consuming processes that do not help the server as a whole. Too much valuable staff time has been consumed dealing with a lot of administrative work that, moderation, and rule enforcement and defense.

The staff
Rely on your staff. As I'm sure you all have seen, the staff behind a server are the reason for successes, and failures. They can be the glue that holds it together or the corruption that tears it apart. We wouldn't have made it as far as we have without an excellent and reliable staff.

With that in mind, let me remind you that they are trustworthy and have the server's best interests at heart. They are in charge. They do not have to justify themselves to you. Review the rules and be respectful of the staff and your fellow players. There has been far too much harassment, rule breaking, and general trolling lately and it is wasting everyone's time. We will be dealing with harassment and rule violation quickly and without argument. If you are in a gray area or are unsure, you should assume you will be punished. Read the rules and be aware. But really, just some general common sense should be all you need.

We will also be review and clarifying rules where necessary and updating other policies and procedures to reflect this new initiative. Stay tuned.

Thanks for reading, and here's to a great new year!

« on: November 22, 2016, 12:08:31 pm »
In an effort to better answer the question "Am I banned?" there is now a live ban tool that feeds directly from the ban data. If your account is banned, you will be in that list. Feast your eyes on all the shameful monkeys...

News / Resolved: Lag / delays / DCs
« on: October 04, 2016, 06:24:09 pm »
After measuring what was going on today during some more DCs and lag, we have identified the cause and fixed it. I won't go into detail as it's pretty technical, but we've tweaked how the server manages memory and improved some interprocess communication.

We should be done with lag, delays, and mass disconnections and have a smoother playing experience than ever before. Happy PVPing!

Polls / How do you feel about the "relaunched" server?

Just want to get some quick feedback on the job we're doing so far and how you think the server is shaping up now that we're back in action.

News / Shop bug resolved
« on: September 18, 2016, 09:29:59 pm »
As some of you clearly noticed, there was a glitch in the banana shop that was allowing many people to purchase items without being charged for them. As you can imagine, a select few abused this significantly before anyone reported it. So to be fair to everyone, we have to roll back to the start of the relaunch.

I really hope this is the last glitch introduced in this relaunch that will require rollback. Thanks for your patience with us during this first few days as we identify any remaining issues and iron out all these wrinkles. It should be smooth sailing soon enough!

PS: There will be compensation / bonus prizes given out over the next few days once we are sure everything has stabilized. There will also be some celebratory events. Stay tuned.

News / Skill cooldown bug resolution
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:07:54 pm »
Last night I noticed we had forgot to set server time to the proper time. We had been modifying server time in order to test time-sensitive elements prior to launch and I missed that item on my todo list for the launch. As a result, the server was 6 days ahead of real time and when we set it back to real time, some skill cooldowns got "stuck".

The skill cooldowns are stored as timestamp when the skill is available again, and the timestamps stored for these skills were 6 days in the future. We aren't able to edit this part of the database, so the only way to resolve this is to roll back the data by about 20 hours to when we launched yesterday.

I'm sorry for those who lost some hours of work. I think this should be the last of any bugs like this that are hanging around. As always, if you notice anything amiss, please let us know ASAP to minimize the impact.
