This list represents my attempt to keep an up-to-date list of my requests for the devs. I will attempt to limit it to things which seem like obvious bugs and which the community has a general consensus on, and I'll try to keep this first post edited as time goes on. Comment is welcome - I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things.

1. Build the Harebox http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4660
2. Provide spawning percentages for lion missions: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=44146#44146
3. Fix the apparent factional mission spawn issue: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=42282#42282 (That thread has many issues discussed, but Taricha's is the first of a series of reports on this particular problem.)
4. Make my CPU quit burning up: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1331
5. [newish] Put current missions into missionLog.php, including the origin, and add timestamps to mission completion and sort by them, instead of when they were picked up: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4936
6. Put the 2 minute buffer for combat spawning at the end, not the beginning: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4859
7. Fix all my sound problems at once: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=44432#44432
8. Implement one of my preferred changes to the autoresolver: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=40492#40492
9. Fix the logs: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=39612#39612
10. [new!] Fix the old forum links: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=47249#47249
11. Legacy Op post-mortem: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=37541#37541


Bugs which haven't affected me and so I don't care about, but which nonetheless seem like they ought to be addressed, lots of people are experiencing, and no one would object to fixing:

- People are getting stuck: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4757
- Crew isn't abiding by their contract terms: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4888
- Crew isn't abiding by their personality constructs: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4918


Completed tasks:

- Fix the rollover server outage - Done, we're now on weekly database backup on Monday nights.
- Give me a tip jar - Done, it's right there. Go donate!


(Edit 1, 9/30/08: Server outage and tip jar completed; 2 minute buffer problem, stuck skyrate problem, crew theft problem, and crew personality problems added)

(Edit 2, 10/7/08: Added changes to the mission log, demoted all additions in Edit 1 to newish)

(Edit 3, 11/6/08: Added old forum link fix, demoted previous additions)

/me points to this thread for some more bugs & feature requests.

Especially clicking chat goes to top bug, need for scrollbars, and increasing client-server lag when accessing missions.

Actually, i asked what my jobs are this morning.

1. Build the Harebox http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4660
- hardware installed, seems to work ok. i need to burn a copy of ubuntu and install it, and get an address
2. Fix the rollover server outage.
- the nightly restart is much less serious now, and i expect to set up the db backups for Monday nights
3. Give me a tip jar.
- we're working on the be-a-real-boy part of this
4. Provide spawning percentages for lion missions: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=44146#44146
- i've gotten permission to do so, will compute when i get a moment
5. Fix the apparent factional mission spawn issue: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=42282#42282 (That thread has many issues discussed, but Taricha's is the first of a series of reports on this particular problem.)
- i spoke to Taft about it, he's aware, but has more pressing life stuff at the moment. it's a code change, not database; i personally am likelier to have more effective results elsewhere
6. Make my CPU quit burning up: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1331
- archon's on this but don't hold your breath
7. Fix all my sound problems at once: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=44432#44432
- i've been thinking about how to build this but haven't started the work yet
8. Implement one of my preferred changes to the autoresolver: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=40492#40492
- i forget this thread
9. Fix the logs: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=39612#39612
- i think my jobs for making the reset are higher priority right now
10. Legacy Op post-mortem: http://skyrates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=37541#37541
- keeps getting back-burnered. but daggone phil, daggone.

Phil, I believe you once said that it's the clouds that cause the majority of the CPU usage? I don't know if it's possible but I'm sure I've seen other flash applications that not just make the lines more 'blurred' but remove details when the "Quality" setting is changed, or in some cases even have an in-game option for that. Is there any way you could simply have a way to turn off clouds? Or have clouds turned off if medium or low quality was set?

My fingers are crossed for some sort of way to log in without an IP check or whatever it is that makes me 1/3ed at work and university (where I spend the vast majority of my time).

Tough luck there, you're running into issues with firewalls, proxies and port forwarding that is really out of the scope.
