New lobby server lead

Post by Tobi »

Lately Betalord got a lot less involved with Spring after having written, maintained and run the current Spring lobby server application - TASServer - for multiple years.

For a long time this was the only server in development, but recently a new one, called uberserver, was written by aegis. Contrary to TASServer this server is currently in active development and already has most important features of TASServer implemented, plus a set of brand new features.

It is for these reasons that I hereby announce that aegis currently is the new lobby server lead - lobby CTO ;-) -, who will plan for a smooth transition to uberserver and then: more new cool innovative features :P

I've also asked SwiftSpear to become head moderation, or, as he'd like to call it, 'community lead'. He's been involved for a very long time already and has in practice already grown to head moderation long time ago, so it's really time now to finally make this official. So you can welcome SwiftSpear as 'community lead'.

I'd say, thank them all - Betalord, aegis and SwiftSpear - for the huge amounts of time they already used for making Spring a better place and wish them good luck :-)

I can also fix accounts in lobby now, so when you loose your password PM me, as opposed to bugging tobi.

Also: BWHAHAHAHAHA!

TASServer runs fine on Linux too, AFAIK the main server has been run on Linux and FreeBSD systems only.

Does this explain why the lobby has been having so much extended downtime recently?

no, it's a networking fault, as you can see from the server welcome message which shows uptime, the server has been running eversince, it was just unreachable
