Exclamation A little warning..!

I meant to post this a while back.

Anyways, I logged into Unholy Nation's RC a while back by mistake and they were desperately trying to get my help before I logged back off. Anyways, a problem arised on that server in which nobody could access their levels/heads/ folder. It wouldnt load for them.

I messed around a little bit and was able to gain access myself into the heads folder, mind you it took forever to load. Guess what I found. I found a folder with an incredibly large amount of heads...more than I had seen on any other server. I figured that was the problem and I was going to try to back the folder up and delete its contents in the FTP to see if that helped. I was in the process of downloading all the heads into a folder I had created on my desktop--SUDDENLY I realized what was the problem. Somebody had uploaded almost every GLOBAL head into their LOCAL head folder. I was seeing head998.png, head999.png, head1000.png, head1001.png....etc etc, downloading. I checked a few to make sure the graphics were the same as the global ones..and they were.

Anyways somebody messed up, or got confused, or thought it'd be funny. I deleted all the global heads out of their folder and everybody was able to access the heads folder again perfectly fine.

So moral of the story is:

DO NOT UPLOAD GLOBAL HEADS INTO A PLAYERWORLD'S LOCAL HEAD DIRECTORY!!!

I was able to access the folder when all those heads were in it ONLY when I had just R access to it. Everybody who had RW access got locked out...I'm guessing because you are not allowed to edit global heads? Some internal scripted check I suppose.

So dont upload global heads into your heads folder, and dont name any heads "head*.png" either, since that is the name format for global heads. I'm guessing the same applies for swords and shields, but I have not encountered a problem involving them on a playerworld...yet.

Thanks..

-Zen

That's what they get for having staff memebers that have no clue what they are doing.

I remember a long while back, (1999-2000) I deleted all the heads on UN in a last ditch effort to reduce lag...

It worked, but you'd be amazed how many copies of the same head there were at that time... Some 50 heads that were just renamed, others... Edited by maybe 2-3 pixels.

So at least I know I (indirectly) did something a long time ago... Which has no relivance anymore... So...
