Guys.

I broke TWHL.

And I'll do it again!

After a whole day of being worthless, TWHL is now functional again! (Unless you aren't already logged in, at least.)

Penguinboy has been summoned to fix the header/session issues at the top of the page for all those who can't log in. Just be patient and it'll be fixed soonish.

UPDATE: I believe everything should be in order now. Penguinboy will be unleashing a suitable punishment on yours truly for crashing the site.

How'd you get in there, Rick?

You've probably noticed we're being randomly attacked by a persistent, if unoriginal, spammer. Penguinboy has just upgraded our antispam measures, they should make short work of him for now, and he's got some more advanced tools in the works.

As an extra measure we've promoted The Mighty Atom to admin, which he definitely deserves!

If you notice anything when we're not around, PM Atom, Grim, Penguinboy or myself, we'll take care of it when we can.

EDIT - The competition is over! -- Grim

Good luck!

Head over to the voting thread and cast your vote for the new competition theme. The rules are on the first post.

Our good friend JeffMOD has finished his new tutorial: Custom Skyboxes for Goldsource.

This is the first tutorial in over a year. Maybe this will get people with drafts in their list to pull their fingers out?

To celebrate JeffMOD's contribution, he gets custom titles enabled! Hooray!

No Bullshit Today

It's now April 1st in about half of the world, and this means that you should not believe anything that you read on the internet today. And I mean EVERYTHING. It's all pure lies. Just a reminder to the more gullible members of the site.

On a related note, TWHL is not going to participate in the shenanigans today, as it is demeaning, immature and predictable. Have a good day!

EDIT: Yeah it's over. But the news will remain until the next notable date! (probably E3)

Merry Christmas from all your friends at TWHL!

Edit!
Several of TWHL's members combined their efforts recently to make "Rooms", a series of unrelated rooms showcasing their various skills and ideas. Captain Terror even went out of his way to connect them all and give them to us in one convenient mod! So what are you waiting for? Get you some!

IRC channel changed (again)

I recently noticed that the old #twhl channel has become available, meaning that we can migrate back to using it over #twhl3, which is what we were using before. With TWHL4 approaching, #twhl3 makes less sense than it did 2 years ago. Anyone who regularly (or irregularly) joins/idles in IRC should note that the channel has changed.

For people who have never used IRC, give it a try! Firefox users can download the ChatZilla add-on, Opera users can use the client built into their browsers, and everyone else can use mIRC or a client of their choice. Drop in every now and then and have a chat! (and hope that you joined at a time when there's a discussion happening :P)

To recap and embiggen: THE IRC CHANNEL HAS CHANGED.

"Penguinboy and I will try to get on these as soon as possible."

Hahahahaha, yeah...

Well anyway, the competition results are up!

EDIT:
Sorry for the big wait guys. To apologise for taking so long, everyone who entered the compo now has custom titles enabled. Yay? - Pb

The competition is officially over. We got a grand total of 8 entries this time! (The last one had 7)

Penguinboy and I will try to get on these as soon as possible. Good luck!

(It's now 9 entries) -- Grim

I'm looking through/judging/writing up the compo stuffs now. Expect results 'late' later today if not early tomorrow.

Keep watch of your PM boxes should I have any problems -- Grim
