Maintenance complete and all services are up and running again. With the upgrade some new features have been added to winbolo.net

Email Forwards
All winbolo.net members now have the ability to create an email forward. This will forward all email that comes to <login>@winbolo.net to the email address supplied in their player profile. Players can also specify whether they want their email aliases visible on their profile page or not. This will allow players to send each other private messages or game requests without disclosing their real email address.

Email forward settings are available in the Modify Account page and more information can be found on the Help page.

Player Diaries
Another new feature is player diaries. Located off each player profile page is a link to their game diary. (Here is mine for example.) The game diary page displays a list of all games a player has played. Each has a link to the game log recorded on winbolo.net. The entries are stored in reverse chronological order (i.e newest at the first)

This means that all games can now be viewed. Previously after 24 hours they would disappear off the archived games page and would not be accessible any more.


Game Log Page Enhancements
Off each of the archived games logs there is now the ability to comment as well as rate the game. There is also a link to download the game log if it is available. (when the log viewer and WinBolo 1.15 is out)

Please post if you encounter any problems or have any feedback.

Also for a limited time if your current login can not have an email alias (because of invalid characters) and you would like one I will change it. Please post if you would like your login changed.

Remember to include what the name is you want your login changed to.

Another minor change was:


Map download counts. WBN now records the number of time each map is downloaded from the map collections.

I haven't seen any information on either how to activate my wbn email address or how to access it (server settings and names). I'd like to be able to access this from my own email client rather than having it forwarded to another email address of mine.

You mean like a POP3 account Sticks?

My understanding is this is only a forward, not an email hosting service. You could always get an email POP from winbolo.us, and forward to that account.
