Not familiar with POL, I wonder if it's using a different packet, could you verify that it's sending the packet outlined here: http://www.uogateway.com/forum/index.php/topic,4.0.html

This is the log if it helps.  Basically the poller is not getting the correct info back from the server.  It could be that it's not doing a null return on the string, I've seen that before.

Hi Red Squirrel,

our shard "Sigena" (www.uosigena.de) doesn't appear in the shard-list, voting seems possible, but it's not registered in the "last polled" page and I don't know why it is like that. The shard is active and online though we were - so far - unable to let your site know our server is up and alive. I'd like to change this, but found only sphere-server comments. We run POL. Could you help us out, please?

« Last post by Red Squirrel on October 02, 2017, 02:57:07 AM »
Oh was it just hanging?  That usually means that the shard is down or it can't talk to it for some reason.  May possibly have been some weird network issue on our side or the shard was not up.

So it's working now?

Human Resources / Anyone interested in a new Server?
« Last post by ltcmdsimmer on September 06, 2017, 04:23:53 PM »
Its been about 10 years since i played UO, and really interested in making a new server. i've owned and ran 10+ servers back in the day, so i know how.  Biggest problem is i don't have time to manage it all the time. it will be run off of Microsoft Azure with unlimited bandwidth. So please post or msg me if anyone is interested in playing or managing a new server. If big interest i can create voip server, website, etc for support, and all for free.

Suggestions / In progress / Re: Got bots?
« Last post by Red Squirrel on September 04, 2017, 04:45:01 PM »
I saw that one.  I have no immediate plans to start dealing with these as I need to come up with a proper system, but that one was on the completely blatant ridiculous side.  I did not quite delist it but let's just say they won't be on the top for a bit.  ;)

Woah - almost 14,000 votes by UO Shard in barely 3 days.  At some point it's begging for a ban.    That will invariably lead to a claim that unknown actors set up the voting bots to get them tossed.  Did you notice they're hosted in the same room as this site?

I would rather our shard have one honest vote than a thousand fakes!


Wow.  During my composition of this message they seem to have been de-listed.  Talk about quick action!

News / Shards that cheat, use bots to vote etc, we know who you are
« Last post by Red Squirrel on August 16, 2017, 12:06:19 AM »
We may not be doing anything about it now, but don't be fooled we know who you are and I kindly ask those who are cheating to knock it off.  Once we have the resources in place you will be met with fire and fury. (I had to use that line)

Seriously though, there is no point in cheating.  That is about as low and pathetic as you can go, and other people who see it know damn well that you are cheating and it actually only serves to hurt your shard's reputation.

Play fairly.   Unfortunately it's the nature of the beast, we can't block that stuff completely as things like online count rely on shard supplied data which can be altered, but I do have plans to start adding some better detection algorithms and those who cheat will get their shards removed, or votes reset, etc.

I am also toying with idea of requiring an account tied to an email address in order to vote, just to add an extra layer of difficulty, but not sure if I want to do that yet.
