Once again, 2 The Xtreme has had a major change. Though this site is being placed back online, 2 The Xtreme is no longer a running game. This site will now simply be an online archive of the 2 The Xtreme universe and will likely remain inactive for the immediate future. 2 The Xtreme can restart if there is enough interest to resume the game.

I have merged the old site stats with the new site. There is a gap between May 24, 2014 and January 24, 2016 because the site was primarily offline. Copying the stats by hand for this missing period just isn't going to happen. The site start date has also been reset back to when the stats begin, June 9, 2002.
The old Newsletter module, and actual newsletters have been restored. Though I said I would not have a "wall of shame", I decided against it. I now have a public ban list. You can find it in the menu. The stats have once again been reset. There is now a system in place that will tell me how popular specific pages are on the site.

I have restored the old news articles from the previous site. All comments and votes did not make the transfer. I had to mess with the database a little to get the votes for this story to properly show & update.

I seen there were a number of misreporting page views with the RPG system, and I was unable to reliably alter the page view data, so all the stats have been reset to today.

There have been a handful of changes to a few of the underlying systems to improve administrator side of things. After looking at the current statistics system, I decided it needed to be slightly expanded, especially on the RPG system. I'm still not sure how I'm going to handle the old game logs. I would love to place them back online but I still working on ideas of putting these old logs back online.
Regarding the RPG modules that were in use on the old site.
The RPG system has entered 95% completion. Much of the internal core has been adopted to function on my new system. User created characters, they will remain in the database. They are presently locked from editing. There will eventually be capacity to resume creating and editing characters as there was on the old site, but with a username/password combo. That username & password combo will only be valid for that ONE (1) character. Once this function is live, incomplete, and stupid characters will be deleted at will. Providing there is enough interest, a system can be put in place to allow you to store your characters on-site.
Old site features have also been changed.
• The forums are gone. They're dead Jim.
• PHP-Nuke downloads are also gone.
• PHP-Nuke support of any kind also gone.
Expect to see just as few updates in the future as have occurred in the past; not many. Also, there is no public Wall of Shame. Everyone's favorite anti-spam system, "Rogue Admin" is live as well and is just as aggressive as it has always been. I expect to see tons of wordpress and drupal exploits making their way across this site. The ban page is much more tame. Time for me to move on, it was fun in the past with Rogue Admin kicking around the 1337, Google, cut-n-paste skiddies.
