Do any of the f2p high score sites hold f2p highscores for old school servers aswell or plan to in the future?

 

As of right now, no, neither of us has an old school '07 Scape hiscore. That said, it certainly is a brilliant idea, and I'll look to see if it'd be quick enough to make one. I'll keep you informed if I can do it.

Couple names that can be added I believe.

 

Expert1212

Hardcoredef

Les Bleus

 

Also, you can put me down as Canadian nationality.

 

Hello Animorph2, I have added the three characters you mentioned, and they will be processed tonight. You should be able to see them on the hiscores in roughly 9 and a half hours (8pm EST). I have also changed your nationality to Canadian.

 

Thank you for the updates!

 

EDIT: Also, there's a new development! I was able to secure http://www.reddit.com/r/f2p for our official subreddit! I will be pushing into marketing and advertising later on, but I thought that Tip.it should be the first ones to know. This subreddit can be used by all of the community, not just for F2PHiscores.com, so feel free to stop by and post there. Pictures, questions, everything. It's our own dedicated forum for the F2P community.

Hey Lt_Wolfe, is your website hijacked or do I just have the domain wrong?  (at others: don't attempt to visit the site just in case but the link I'm looking at is hxxp://www.f2phiscores.com/)

 

Yes, it was. I have fixed the problem, and will be sure to prevent anybody from uploading anything in the future. Turns out that the "hackers" (more like script kiddies) used an open upload form elsewhere on my site to upload a number of config files, including a script to give them FTP privileges. Don't worry: no one's information was stolen or anything like that, the script kiddies just used an automated script to replace the "index.php" file on my domain. Every internal page and database row were untouched.

 

As far as a fix is concerned, it was as simple as removing the vulnerabilities and uploading a backup copy of the index file. Thank you for finding this issue, though.

I think, for now, my best solution is to change hosts. I'm looking for new ones, but it will take a few days. The thing I have in the backgrounds is basically me doing it on my localhost at home manually, and then uploading the data to my public server each night. This isn't pretty, and I know it's not going to be very helpful for anyone, but it's the best option I have at the moment.

 

Anybody know of good web hosts for cheap? haha

 

@essiw: how would I do this from a shared host?

Even just running a simple "file_get_contents" doesn't work, so I'm not sure adding a pause would help. It times out after 120 seconds regardless. If you could create a script that doesn't target that page, then I'd be all for it. I'll post the script I'm currently using to parse the hiscores just so we can go back and forth on the best way to do things. I want my script to be efficient and easy, so I think open-sourcing it would be the best way to do that.

 

I contacted Jagex's web team via Twitter and they said that, if I were IP banned, I would be getting a 404 response instead of the timeout I'm getting now. My host says nothing is wrong on their end. As it's only the one file I can't get from Runescape's server, I'm also very confused. I've never worked with Google DNS, but I'm not sure if that would help; it sounds like it would just be another IP for my server to use, but since Jagex says I'm not IP blocked, I don't know.

 

By the way: I can get the file using the same script on another server, so I know it has to be either Jagex or my host.

 

This is frustrating beyond belief, and I really am sorry for the problems that it causes you guys. I will try to find a new host and see if they have better luck with stability.

 

In the meantime, take a look at my redesign ideas and let me know what you think: http://imgur.com/a/UOLg4

 

EDIT: As for the redesign of the profile, before anybody else says it: yes, I know that Meneer Naab isn't American, but I used that flag to show the boundaries of the icon, instead of the Dutch flag which has white in the middle (look here to compare: http://i.imgur.com/KoIRL49.png)
