Contest to Find the Best Methods to Solve

February 25th, 2010 1 comment

What is e_e + e__e?

If you have been to our IRC channel recently, you’ll notice that these kind of questions are being asked. Obviously, the answer we want here is e___e, but how did you solve it? This is what this contest is about. We are looking for method(s) you used to solve.

The contest will have up to 3 winners*. One in each of the following categories:

  • Best in speed
  • Best in style
  • Best in creativity/originality

*If your method is considered best in more than one categories, you would only be rewarded once.

The reward will be 10 points + ability to DoN it.

To submit your method, simply respond to this post or send a private memo to me on IRC ( /memo Windy _Your Method_ ).

The deadline is this Friday, February 26 at 11:59 PM ET! Don’t let the opportunity escape!

Free Gift for You!

February 7th, 2010 4 comments

We have decided to give a free gift to everyone. However, you must choose what you want before the bell strikes today at midnight.

Choose 1:

  • 1 Math Point on IRC
  • 1000 GP on IRC
  • 1000 Zeny on Grinder

In addition, you can also add “Double or Nothing” (or “DoN”) to your comment. This will give you a 50/50 chance on IRC to double your gift amount or receive nothing.

Please leave a comment with your choice before the deadline!

Two for Tuesday, February 2nd!

February 2nd, 2010 No comments

We have a special 2 points event for today, Tuesday (2), February 2nd (2/2)! Take advantage of it by visiting us on IRC now!

Self/Steal (S/S Ratio): 2 / 1-2

P.S. This event will last 24 hours, but because this was announced late in the day, it will stay active until late tomorrow.

P.P.S. Extra 2 points if you post a comment here before the event is over. ;)

Update: It appears that there is a problem with the commenting system. If you are unable to leave a comment, please type this on IRC once: /222

Update 2: You may now get a math question by typing /math or the traditional way (/ctcp SS-Link !math).

Happy New Year!

January 11th, 2010 No comments

Happy new year everyone! (well, actually, some of us are still waiting for the Chinese new year…)

We have started the new year with some updates. Here goes:

Site:

  • Minor updates (too minor to report). We do plan to make some noticeable changes in the near future. Please stay tuned.

IRC:

  • RSS feed announcements have been moved to the #feeds channel.
  • IRC games such as our infamous Black Jack have been moved to the #games channel.
  • Some of the bots may have their features transferred to another bot. This is to ensure that all the bots will have all the resources available to handle requests.

Grinder:

  • A new server is still being worked on and tested. Only critical updates will be included on the current server. Once the new server is ready, expect a flood of updates.
  • We do not have any plan to close the server down, so do not feel that you will lose all your work on the server. Even though the game is aging, we hope to see and obtain more updates soon.
