i´ve improved internet explorer experience, though the only explorer version I will attend to is 7 (IE 6 is too buggy for a developer working on free software to worry about). For IE 7, there are only a couple more things that I need to review, like formation screen alignment. But the changes I´ve made so far should already make a good difference.

cheers!

When you have pending negotiations the menu icon blinks (and the title changes). We dont have a good different icon to use there, so for now the icon will be the same.

a draft of team event history is implemented. I am not satisfied, but it is better than nothing.

“team event history”: the league should be an additional info there. league 1, league 2, etc. … and promotion, relegation. just a thought

I agree, we’ll have something like

“Ends Division 2 in position 1. Promoted to Division 1”
“Ends Division 1 in position 16.”
“Ends Division 1 in position 18. Relegated to Division 2”

Gabriel, its fantastic we have team history now, but would it be possible to have something like this:

“Ends second in division one – season xxxxx"
“Wins the cup – season xxxx”
“Wins division one – season xxxx”
“Wins division two, promoted to division one – season xxxx”
“Ends third in division two, promoted to division one – season xxxx”

dont know, just a thought to make it more “professional”

other thing, would it be possible to have instead of division one the names of the leagues? Like serie A, serie B, premier league, brasileirão, etc? It would be nice :D

cheers guys, thanks for the hard work!

Team history is being improved as I type. Me and Danilo have just discussed league names and we’ve decided to keep it as it is for now. Not because it is difficult to implement, but because we have other priorities. I’ll open an enhancement request on our system so we don’t forget to do that in the future.

Our server is now clustered/balanced. In other words, the performance should be dramatically better on our top hours. However, bugs can happen. I count on you guys to report them, using the improvements discussion topic. cheers!

Reset scheduled for tonight (here in Brazil, GMT -03:00). First turn will last something between 12-24 hours so most of the users have the chance of applying for a team. Any comments on this subject should be posted in the “Improvements Discussion” topic.

Cheers.

Formation “Save as” button implemented.

ps: the validations are not performed correctly (yet). so if you try something odd you will have a system error.

The Board now doesn’t allow unrealistically high wages to be offered. The limit depends on the player quality.

Unfortunately I was forced to implement the code to ban users. We already banned one user that have created more logins after one of our warnings.

Edited by Gabriel: users in the same network as the banned user will also be punished as a collateral effect. Please, tell your friends not to cheat :-)
