[Website] PHP5 headaches

Upgraded the website to php5 last night and it's highlighted a some of my more sloppier code. Please let me know if you find any more, and sorry for any inconvenience.

[Website] Scheduled downtime

I plan on bringing the website down tonight to make some security upgrades. I've tried to make the site as secure as possible and, while there isn't currently any security issues, I'd like to make sure in case there ever is a breach that all your information is properly protected. It really isn't that big of deal since the website doesn't store a whole lot of personal information but the recent PlayStation Network issues have brought it close to home.

After everything is said and done all of us will be required to re-login to the website as our cookies will no longer be valid.

[Developers] Mark your scripts for the New API

Added a little box for developers to mark their scripts as "PlayOn Premium" This will sure help alleviate the inevitable confusion.

The Forums get (Gr)avatars

I just remembered about Gravatar, which seems like a great idea. So great that all users now have Gravatar Avatar. It's really easy to sign up and get you avatar showing. Just make sure you use the same email address you did when signing up with

Introducing: Bounties

Bounties are an idea I had thought of early on after developing the scripts plugin, but have just now gotten around to developing. Basically a user can submit a website that they want to see a script for with a dollar figure attached and developers can then choose to take up the task of developing the script.

PlayOnScripts will be the intermediate, the script will be uploaded to, reviewed, and, if confirmed working, payment will be collected from the bounty poster. The developer will then be given the go ahead to add the script to the site and the bounty will be transferred. I plan on collecting a small fee for these transactions to compensate for handling and completing the bounties, and also for development.

I thinking around 10%, so if the bounty is 10$, PlayOnScripts would likely take 1$ (before any fees associated the credit card processing are deducted by Google Checkout) Also bounty posters are expected to use Google Checkout as the only way to pay a bounty, the developer, however, can choose between PayPal or Google Checkout.

It's a loose Beta application right now, so bugs might be discovered.

I got this section working a little early and decided to put it up as a beta

Busy at work...

My fingers have been hurriedly typing up a new section of the site which could help get some new content out there. And that's all I'm going to say until it's finished, which should be some time this week, or, possibly, next week.

Download Keys revisted

I've finally implemented the new procedure for downloading scripts that require a key that I outlined here.

Basically before downloading scripts that require a key, user's will be prompted to login or register for an account. Once logged their username will be appended to the Google Checkout purchase description. If you ever receive a charge back you'll be able to provide me with a name so I can investigate further.

Site Updates

Did some more work on the site, finally adding some things that were needed for a while now.

Developers can remove their Scripts

I coded a small little update that lets script developers delete their unwanted scripts.
