Malachite Blockade Videos



Ahoy!

On Sage I have been recording many blockade videos lately, and though it was about time to roll it out onto the other Oceans.

The general idea, is for an occupant of your Ocean to record the blockades on your Ocean, so that a record of them all can be kept.

If ye feel that ye can record a blockade, please fill in the application form (linked below), so that we do not (hopefully) end up with five people recording one, and no-body recording another.

Sage Blockade Video forum link

Blockade Video Website

Recording guide

Recording application page

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, by PM, as Fearlessphil on the Sage Ocean, posting in this thread, or email me Fearlessphil@blockadevideos.com

I hope that we can make this work!

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

Your blockade page is all messed up... for instance your Midnight blockades section includes the following contenders for Guava 9:

Defender: Castigo X 1
Attacker 1: Beyond the veil 3
Winning flag: Beyond the veil

There is no Castigo X on Midnight. I believe you have all the blockade statistics shifted down by 1, as there is never any data for the first blockade on the list.

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

Right -- the correct contenders are right below that, under Sage: Basset 18.

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

On the front page of blockadevideos.net, I have the following text:
 

Cobalt
Diastrophe 5
This blockade lasted 3 rounds.
There are no videos currently present on the server for this blockade.

Kirin 6
This blockade lasted 3 rounds.
Position Flag Score
Defender: Static Before the Storm 0
Attacker 1: Polaris 3
Winning flag: Polaris


etc.

When I look at the HTML source though, it looks like it must be some kind of a display issue. I am using IE 7 on Windows. Here is an excerpt from the HTML source, bold added for my emphasis so that you can see a missing right-bracket that is maybe being implicitly figured out by whatever browser you are using?
 
... d>Attacker 1:</td><td>Polaris</td><td>3</td></tr><tr><td>Winning flag:</td><td>Polaris</td><td>&nbsp;</td></tr</table><p class="results">There are no videos currently present on the server for this blockade.</p></p><p class="blocktitle">Kirin 6< ...

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

Interesting...

I have poked around in the php code, and added the close of the angle bracket, thanks for pointing that out!


Could you please see if it works now for you?

I use Mozilla Firefox, which obviously must have fixed it itself.

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

Now it looks like the blockades are lined up right, although they also currently seem to show all "There are no videos currently present on the server for this blockade."

Ah, the life of a web developer... how I do not miss it...

Its meant to do that...

If there are videos on the server for that particular blockade it will display the links, otherwise it complains that there are none there...

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

 

Nice work on the site!


Thank you!

It is the first site where I have worked majorly with PHP and mysql, so there will be teething problems, but I feel that I am picking it up fairly fast.

I am hoping that my friend who is good with designs, will soon manage to get the layouts made nicer. I totally suck at the whole design aspect of it.

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

Yes, thanks to the increased speed, I watched rounds 3 and 4 of the Akhlys 1, which I had missed out on seeing, due to falling asleep.

Thanks again and keep it up matey.

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

Do these videos not include the round break of the two brigs entering the board to destroy the stock ship?

No, sorry mate, I only record the rounds as its nice to have a little while for my computer to chill, and for me to actually be able to use them for the break.

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

Alright, watched the whole thing trying to count sinks. It goes fast, so I obviously may have missed a few here or there. But final counts...

The Criminally Insane lost 40 ships (41 if you count the Merchant Brig)

Naughty Nerds lost 51 ships (If I recall, I think a ship or two may have sunk in the round 3 break, if so, its not counted)

91 total sinks (or a few more =p) If each of those ships had 22 jobbers on them, that means that this blockade produced over 2000 fishies. Yay for fish!

Re: Malachite Blockade Videos

Ok mates,

Here is the deal. For each round of a blockade which someone records, and is able to upload to my webserver to add to the collection of blockade videos, I will pay them 10k.

Please obviously don't all try recording the same thing, as I will not pay more than once. Just post in this thread that you will be recording the blockade, or even just a round of it.

Instructions are on the blockade videos website.

For uploading information, please PM me after the recordings are done, and I will give you logon details.


I hope that you guys manage to get recordings!
