On Hold

Reflecting on where the site is heading and stuff like that, we have decided that it would be best if we hold all updates to the site. This will mean that the site will look barren and everything will come to a halt...from your perspective. From our perspective, the site will under heavy maintence and undergoing multiple changes. The reason for this is that if we were to add something, we would have to hide it or make it barely work to put online for the world to see. If we didn't have to worry about it, it would make our lives easier and the site would reach our goal a lot sooner.
We may still put a small update here and there especially regarding the content but nothing major will happen other than that.
Our Facebook Page will continue to be updated aswell as our Twitter Feed and our Tumblr page.
We look forward to the future of MineGuide and we hope to begin rolling out heaps of updates and content very soon.

Happy Crafting!

New Additions

Over the past week, I have been adding small little things around the site. Some of them you won't see as they are purely behind the scenes stuff for us but the majority of the other addons are clearly noticeable. You should have picked up that the news feed has changed with an image of the user's account, a border representing the rank of that user (hovering over the image will reveal the rank name), a calendar that tells you the date of the post of the topic, the nav bar has curved edges and if you do get lost, we have a new and alot better looking are you lost page (also know as 404 page not found).
If you have any feedback you would like to give us about anything about the site wether it be something isn't working, you don't like the look of something or you would like to suggest something, send us an email to mineguidewebmaster@gmail.com and we will be sure to reply.
Untill then, we hope you enjoy the new site. We will post a topic later regarding the content of the site.

Happy Crafting!

Problem Solved

It's all sorted out. Minecraft Versions is now v1.25 and let me tell you, this is the last time I will ever trust my data with windows backup. After a 14 day manual restore and 5 days of recodeing, we released our next version of Minecraft Versions. This was the hardest version to release...ever.
We have also had a small problem with our email system. It continues to send emails using an address from a old project we were woking on. If you received an email from an address that isn't mineguidewebmaster@gmail.com, please disregard it. We have fixed that problem and are now woking on making emails more than just plain text.

It's DONE!

Finally, that stubborn nav bar is fixed. I am so relieved to have it over and done with. Along with the fix, we have added alot more functionality to the site, cleaned up a few things and paved the way for the new account system. We are also starting to work on a mass email system so that people who have subscribed will receive a newsletter or a notification of a software update if they chose to. If you would like to subscribe to these emails, go to out signup page in the more tab in the nav bar.
The uploader has seemed to die on us so we have dispatched a team of highly trained monkeys to fix it. Don't worry. It will all be fine. Until then, there is still a whole things that we still need to work on. So I guess it's back to work for me.

Bug fixes and whatnot

After hours and hours of too much bug fixing, rebuilding mass amounts of code and not to forget multiple facepalm moments, we have finally fixed alot of problems we have been experienceing and added a few more things too. We apoligise for the gap from when we last updated the site. We couldn't release anything untill we finished bugfixing because we literally rebuilt the website again. The sign up system is now working. After a little insignificant "p" was where it shouldn't have been. We are about to start to work on the content of the website after we fix the biggest bug of all. The nav bar. (Ohh boy) This bug is been with us since the start and no matter what we do, it will always change on different screens. Making it the same for all screen sizes is what we intend it to be but it has to be the most stubborn bug in the entire website.
For now, we want you to submit some screenshots of some awesome things that you build so that we can use it as the background of the website. Click Here to upload them. The images will be judged and the best will become the background! Once we fix the nav bar, we will firstly add content to the potions page then add some texture packs and blueprints. But untill then, back to the nav bar. (Yay!)

Happy Crafting!

The New Site is HERE!

Yes, it's HERE! After weeks of hard work and non stop typical computer behaviour, we finally got this site up before our deadline passed! Here is a list of what is new around here...

  • Awesome new design
  • New pages
    • Redstone
    • Blueprints
    • Textures
  • Our very own sign up system
  • News feed on the homepage

Go around and explore the new site!

But before you do, here is a few things that you should know about.
Although we have the signups system working, moving it from our offline test server to here will render it unuseable as it will still try to connect to the our test server which it will no longer have access to. Therefore, for a few days, signups will not work while we try to set up the database again.
You may also notice a few under construction pages. To meet our set deadline of releasing the new site, we havn't had any time to create the content for the pages. Don't worry about them for now, just don't click on the creeper...
We are still working on some aspects of the site and things will be changing around every now and then. Also, we have no idea what we should do with the sidebar on the right. We just stuck a twitter feed and some like buttons there for now.

If there is anything that you come across such as pages not loading correctly and pages that don't look like what they should look like or anything else of the sort or a suggestion for what we could do with the sidebar, please email us at minegudewebmaster@gmail.com and tell us! We want to hear.

We hope you enjoy the new site!

Happy Crafting!
