  • This Friday (November 17) from 9 PM to 11 PM US Central time, this forum will be down for maintenance. Maintenance schedule includes:

    1. Update Woltlab framework to latest version
    2. Reinstall appropriate plugins
    3. Validate update
    If these items are completed successfully, you will be able to log in again at 11 PM US Central time or earlier. If this is unsuccessful, we will attempt a roll-back. Either way, we will have a full database backup, so if we need to do a hard rebase, nothing will be lost.

    Thank you


  • On July 12, 2017, there were over 5 million emails to congress, 2 million FCC comments, and over 120,000 phone calls to congress[1] calling for Net Neutrality to remain in place. In fact, as noted by Fight for the Future, "the volume of participation was so high that the FCC has been 'rate limiting' submissions to their docket. There are an enormous number of comments queued up that will be submitted to their system before the July 17 deadline, as fast as their system can handle." [2] Freedman Consulting, LLC, in a report published on this topic, noted that "Americans of all political parties overwhelmingly support the values of net neutrality and want to preserve existing net neutrality protections. A strong majority (77 percent) of Americans support keeping the existing net neutrality rules in place. This view crosses party lines, as 73 percent of Republicans and 80 percent of Democrats, and 76 percent of Independents want to keep the FCC's Open Internet rules. 81 percent of…
  • On July 12, 2017, expect to see a popup on the site. This call-to-action is prompted in response to the FCC's pending vote on whether to reclassify ISPs as Title I providers, which would have devastating effects on the internet as you know it. You're more than welcome to click away, but we strongly encourage you to take action if you like having access to free content, regardless of what that content may contain or who owns it.

    What is net neutrality?
    Net neutrality is the basic principle that protects our free speech on the Internet. "Title II" of the Communications Act is what provides the legal foundation for net neutrality and prevents Internet Service Providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down and blocking websites, or charging apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience (which they then pass along to consumers.)
    Why is net neutrality important?

  • I would like to call together a vote. Currently, our lore is hard locked. It can only be adjusted by those on the lore staff and members with bypass permissions. However, I am wanting to see what you guys think about opening this up.

    I propose that we shift our lore to a wiki system, similar to wikipedia. Lore staff will provide a base, populating the wiki with all of the information now available on the forums, and then we will open it up to you. This will allow users to add to pages as new information is discovered, allow conversation on particular pages (which is currently disabled to not detract from the lore itself), and will allow us to know what information you want to be available.

    However, this has some obvious cons as well, for instance having to actively maintain the wiki, moderating discussion, and adding another layer of complexity.

    This is why I wanted to get your opinions. As users, do you find it appealing to be able to write and establish your own lore, adding to…
  • Today, as I'm sure many of you in the United States have seen, President Trump signed into law a resolution that repeals the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules to protect consumers from privacy invasions by their Internet service providers (ISPs) like Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, and Time Warner Cable.


    At LuzFaltex, we have always believed in our users' rights to privacy, security, and access to free (as in freedom) services. In these next few weeks while we are waiting on our map, there will be some major changes regarding this new law. This thread will document these changes for you and mark their completion.


    1. [DONE] Implement Do-Not-Track regulations. We have, publicly available at fallofthecitadel.com/.well-known/dnt-policy.txt, established the standard Do-Not-Track policy. This basically says "we don't track you". This policy states that LuzFaltex "respects Do Not Track as a meaningful privacy opt-out of tracking, so that privacy-protecting software can better determine
