Happy Chinese New Year! 新年快樂!

On our forums, you’ll see that we have changed the default avatar for all users to a tiger as this is the year of tiger 虎.

P.S. If you wish to keep your original avatar, simply update your profile again. This was meant to be a temporary change, but somehow ended up being permanent.

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:


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


  • 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.


  • 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.

Home Page Madness

September 9th, 2009 No comments

There was a problem where many of the page links on the web site are directed back to the main home page. This issue has been fixed. It was not meant to be a joke for 09/09/09. Sorry for the inconveniences.

P.S. Thanks to Dorrin231 for reporting.

No Need to Register Again

July 20th, 2009 No comments

Some of you have asked about how to register again on the new site recently.

The short answer is, there is no need to register again!

I was originally going to switch to a new forum (which required new registration), but I’ve decided to stay with the old one with some inputs from the community. Now we have a new web site, new look on familiar forums and existing accounts, so you will not need to register again if you have registered since March 2009.

If you did register for a new account and you had one previously, please let me know! Remember, only one account per person is allowed!

Do you like the new web site?

  • Excellent! The best so far! (33%, 3 Votes)
  • Great! Keep it up! (44%, 4 Votes)
  • Good, needs more work. (22%, 2 Votes)
  • I prefer the forum look. (0%, 0 Votes)
  • No comments. (1%, 0 Votes)

Improved iPhone Compatibility

July 20th, 2009 1 comment icon on iPhone!

Hooray for iPhone visitors! I have just made some enhancements to this site to improve the compatibility with iPhone (should work with all versions).

You can now add this site as an icon in your iPhone’s Home Screen (it’s positioned at the right side of the “Settings” icon as pictured here). To do this, simply follow these steps:

  1. Open up Safari web browser.
  2. Type in as the address.
  3. Once the page has been loaded completely, press the + button on the bottom.
  4. Select Add to Home Screen on the dialog.
  5. Type in SprintSlash (or whatever you’d like to call this site).
  6. Press the blue Add button on the top right corner.
  7. You should be ble to see the cute icon on your iPhone now as pictured here.

Reorganizing Forums

July 18th, 2009 No comments

We are in the process of reorganizing the forums. This is to remove the ‘news’ sections (since they will now be covered on frontpage) as well as reducing the number of forums, particularly removing the forums that have not been utilitzed for a long while.

Please do not be alarmed if you find a dead link. Everything should be sorted out within next few days. Please do pay attention to the forum descriptions though, as what they’re for may have been changed.

Update: Forums are mostly organized now. Everything should be working fine. If you are unable to find an important post on the forums, it has probably been converted into a page on this new web site, which is accessible with the navigation menu on top.
