Taboo Game Assigning A Mark That Doesn't Post Anymore

  1. Grimace African Astronaut [my enumerable hindi guideword]
    I was assigned Kinkou. She doesn't post anymore, making the game impossible. I opted out to try and sign up again to get a new mark and now I am not eligible. WTF?

    Yeah the game is fucking retarded. I did the exact same thing you did a few accts ago and now i dont bother. This is why nobody gets banned by it anymore.

    Shouldn't be that hard for lanny or someone to make taboo have an idle period that takes you outta the game after 2 weeks or so. Galm, you're a codeboi now, do that as a project or something.

    I've only been doing this for three days but I feel confident in my ability to write better code than Lanny, so here it goes

    For real though, what if we had the game reset on a monthly basis or something? Everybody is assigned a new Target. Accounts which have been inactive for X amount of time are kicked out of the game.

    All you had to do was a simple if/else function that removes the player from the game if no posts for two weeks. You suck at hacking, lol.

    Yee, this is definitely a problem. The taboo code is kind of a neglected corner of the codebase. It's not particularly bad, it's just deliberately pushed off into a rarely visited section and was kind of a drunken whim. But that's not really an excuse for it not working.

    I pushed some code that _should_ make it so only people who have posted recently (last 28 days I think) are assigned as marks. I'd appreciate any help in testing it out. I changed the mark re-roll timer to be 1 day (so you can un-reg and re-reg every 24 hours now) since the re-roll didn't end up being as abusable as I thought it was going to be.

    Also working to make the usertitles assignment not be permanent and should hopefully have code up for that soon.

    Are you just talking about taboo user titles?
  15. Lanny virtuosic jazz vampire [my dexterously baritone judicature]
    yee, like when you win/lose taboo right now your usertitle gets changed and the only thing that changes it back is another taboo victory/loss or me just manually setting it. I'd like it to work such that if you win or lose you'd get the title for like a month or something and then it goes back to whatever it was before.

    I kinda always liked the idea of a solitary motherfucker

    Will there still only be one? And will it erase any previous title?

    What do you mean "still only be one"?

    The intent is that if you didn't have a custom title (i.e. you were in the title ladder based on your post count) then you'd go back to being that, if you had a custom title (like mine or yours, just arbitrarily assigned at some point) then it would go back to that.
