It looks kind of interesting to implement.
I'll have to look into the fine print some more before deciding though.

But if you want to use it right now, I believe Skrill accepts PaySafe cards. But you'll have to create an account there, which might not be desired. In that case you'd have to wait a little.

Nope, it's not possible to add a poll later on.
Was that possible on vb?

Installed Win10 at work - upgrade went flawlessly and all my programs were there and working afterwards. LFS also seems to work without any issues. Haven't tried any peripheral devices though.

Either wait until it becomes available in windows update, or download the tool here : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Owh, that's fixed now.

Strange.

One thing you can try :
-find the file cfg.txt which is located in your main LFS folder.
-open it
-replace "Master Port 29339" with "Master Port 8080"

Then try again.

Thanks, that's added.

Quote from Gutholz :It seems all leagues display: Last Race: unknown
even if they have past dates in calender.
Is that because server infos are not entered?

The filter at https://www.lfs.net/news does not work?
If you select a leagues-news it shows no results or few very old ones.
For example select "Rony's Tuesday's Fun Race" in dropdown menu and there are no news.
But there should be at least this article: https://www.lfs.net/news/931#

Or vTorque, here: https://www.lfs.net/news/type/215 the latest news is from 19 Jan 2013.
But on profile the Latest News Update was Fri 3 Apr 2015: https://www.lfs.net/leagues/215-vTorque

Quote from Eclipsed :Also just found out that it's not possible to found league "today" - todays date is shown as invalid,have to select day before.
Just a minor thing you might want to know...

Fixed these.

How many posts per page do you display? Seems good here, but perhaps i have a different amount of posts per page. Otherwise I'll have to look further.

If you use tweaks that change physics, or car settings then that is probably the cause of the OOS messages. You'd need a host that is tweaked as well, otherwise the host and client go out of sync due to different internal calculations.

ppl aren't supposed to visit the lfsmanual site with https. But there was indeed a configuration error, causing the site to still wanna load even though the url is something like https://lfsmanual.net/forum/

I can't really do much about the certificate error - i'd have to get a wildcard certificate and those are fairly expensive. Or I'd have to get separate certificates for every manual language, but that's still a nice sum. Then there's lfsworld, that has the same behaviour. And some other (sub)domains as well.
It's a problem I don't know how to easily solve. Not without throwing a bunch of money at it anyway.

Quote from MemoPedra :Is there a way to change the name "Host" on a rented server?
I know in a dedicated server theres a line in the cfg with /player=Host and we can change it, but i've rented a server yesterday and im trying to change it... is there a command or anything else? i tried /player in the console but didnt worked.

I have added the 'Host player name' field on the 'Basic settings' tab.
You will have to shut down your host before you can edit that field though, and then start your host again.

I rarely delete PBs. If you don't want them gone, you can delete them yourself by clicking on the PB times.

It is linked at the top of the page Big grin

Somehow some people just don't notice that fixed bar at the top though hmm...

Regarding updating the administrators - it probably does work, but there may be some other errors in the form. I saw this when I tried with my test league. I had to enter the description and founding date.
So have a look if you see any red error texts in the form after you submit the changes.

I will indeed put inactive leagues as inactive after a while. Still have to code that up, but the idea is to filter inactive leagues, yes.
I've wondered about sorting by next race date. But we had some other ideas for the listing as well. We just wanted to have some leagues filled in first. Then we can create a more informative listing. So it's a work in progress in that regard too.

I've updated the image now, but yeah it will be cached heavily by flash. You can try another browser to confirm. A new private window also seems to do the job here.

Quote from pr3d4t0r :The track is great!

When can we expect that the http://www.lfsworld.net/rafa/ would be updated with the new configurations so lap times can be analysed more easily?

The replay analyser has been updated.

It does all that already. All displayed times are always local and when you have to enter a time, you can enter local time and i'll convert it to utc internally.
So local times are displayed, but hover over any timestamp on this site and you'll see the utc time in a tooltip.

btw when i say local I mean your local time - not the time of the country the league's located.

Thanks for the great feedback! Some good ideas there which I will have a look at.

I've been thinking about the look of the league details page and was wondering if it should be made to look like a youtube account page for example. It can be given a big graphical header + icon (logo) and then have tabs under it for information, news and seasons. It could be given many of the usual social functions as well - likes, get notified upon season changes / additions (ie. subscribe), etc.

Quote from cargame.nl :Perfect! Only suggestion is to do something about the timezone. Even when I am logged out I see the Amsterdam/Paris timezone.

I've heard this before, but I do not understand it. All times, no matter if you are logged in or not, are always local. Why would you NOT want that?! It cannot be easier for people to see times in UTC and then having to convert them to their local time themselves. I do not see any benefit in that.

Can you confirm it is ok now?
