..and welcome behind the scenes. Welcome to our dev blog – the best blog ever (naturally)!
We want to share what’s going on at the Hattrick office on a normal Wednesday, or on an unusual Tuesday with you, and that’s what this blog is for. We will blog about our daily lives as HT developers, what happens in the office, and share our thoughts with you. This will also be a perfect place for us to comment things that happens in the forums and in the community, and to give our point of view about different things.
We will also take the opportunity to let the persons behind the alias to shine through, and be more personal. And sometimes it may not be even about Hattrick at all. Be aware. 🙂
So, this is not a place where we will announce new features in the game (we got My Hattrick for that), and this is not the place where we will inform about problems or small updates (we got system information for that). This is where you meet us, the people developing this game.
Please, fix the youth academy instead of waste time with silly things!
Well, the devblog was set up long before the crash but we waited with presenting it until now (should have been a few days ago). And neither setting it up or making it public has taken any time from the team working with the code and servers or from the game engine and servers that needs to catch up with the youth system and have it work with a decent speed for it to be open.
So, in essence, no time has been wasted like you suggest. Rest assured we do work hard on making things work.
cool !!! on a du mal a s’imaginer comment, et ou vous bosser se superbe jeu les gars!!
Ahah Ma vergognatevi
please keep this on a different server than HT database ! so we can talk to you when the site is down 🙂
I love hattrick
Tempistica perfetta per aprire questo blog:complimenti!
Aprite le giovaniliiiiii!
jest tu jakiś POLAK-POLAND
you cannot wait a month before open this blog?
You are crazy….
just in time 😉
Why don’t you use some mechanism of disaster recovering to prevent this total crash of the system?
I suppose that your servers are not so expensive and so a perfect copy of the hardware , software and data is not so expensive and difficult….
>> I suppose that your servers are not so expensive and so a perfect copy of the hardware , software and data is not so expensive and difficult….
Errmm… What, in detail makes you *suppose* so? Data to back up your supposition? Experience with heavy load servers? Please be so kind and share your background knowledge with our mere mortals, I might have a job offering…
where are the youth clubs? oh there is the developer blog! fantastic!!! the fact that hattrick works, doesn’t work and so on, is not a problem, because now there is the developer blog! good idea!!!
As I wrote as a reply on another similar comment: this is totaly unrelated. The devblog was set up way before the crash and has in no way taken any time from our work with the crash recovering. And certainly not from the youth system engine and servers that is working to catch up enough to ggive you a decent speed on the site.
Maximum respect for your work. Crashes could happen.
About this blog: nice initiative.
Ok, let’s read…
We apologize for this blog.
Me too 😀
Me, three, not (I like it, great idea!)
dude, how do you fell in these days?
sorry, feel 🙂
MAybe like big, giant jackasses?!
ma qui possiamo insultare gm, mod e sviluppatori senza timore di essere bannati?
Il blog è stato aperto proprio per questo!!
Excelente aca les pongo la traduccion del Google!
. Y dar la bienvenida detrás de las escenas. Bienvenidos a nuestro blog dev – el mejor blog siempre (por supuesto)!
Queremos compartir lo que está pasando en la oficina de Hattrick en un normal miércoles, o en una inusual martes con usted, y eso es lo que este blog es para. Vamos a blog acerca de nuestra vida cotidiana como los desarrolladores de HT, lo que pasa en la oficina, y compartir nuestras ideas con ustedes. Esto también será un lugar perfecto para nosotros para comentar lo que sucede en los foros y en la comunidad, y dar nuestro punto de vista acerca de diferentes cosas.
También vamos a aprovechar la oportunidad para que las personas detrás del alias a brillar a través y ser más personal. Y a veces puede que no sea siquiera se trata de Hattrick en absoluto. Tenga en cuenta.
Por lo tanto, esto no es un lugar donde vamos a anunciar las nuevas características en el juego (conseguimos Mi Hattrick para eso), y este no es el lugar donde vamos a informar acerca de problemas o pequeñas actualizaciones (que conseguimos la información del sistema para eso). Aquí es donde puede reunirse con nosotros, la gente que desarrolla este juego.
Una pena que solo se pueda compartir con quien sepa inglés.
I can’t connect… I think your blog is down… 😀
I can’t wait to read about the winner of your fart game during working time! ^__^
Are you going to tell us what happens in the office? Well, then I really hope you tell us that you’re taking some psychology and communication course, ’cause you need them badly. Opening this blog NOW is exactly what was needed to turn Hattrick users from “murderous” to “like the Cold War”; how is it possible you don’t realize it?
Making the communication better is bad? I dont understand that. Sorry.
And communicating more does not inflict on the development work or the recovery work after the crash. not in any way, shape or form.
It is a matter of timing. At this moment, Hattrick is still NOT working properly, and users are furious about it. Of course opening this blog is not going to make thing worse, but it is certainly not what users expect to see RIGHT NOW. It’s psychological; that’s why I wrote they need a psychology course… they can’t figure out the psychological reactions of the users.
“This is where you meet us, the people developing this game.”
Hare you them? [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6ox2ld5PLs]
ma invece che stare qui a perdere tempo con ‘sto cazzo di blog, mettervi a lavorare un po’ seriamente per far funzionare ‘sto cazzo di gioco, no eh?
This is crap. There a whole lot to do and your are really thinking a shiny new blog with no sense and no content is a good idea?
What about your projects? Who is not working on them while writing this blog? You really have to think about priorities!
We’re not all doing the same thing. Communicating (and setting up a blog last week) has not taken any time from the developers. We have people in defferent roles as I hope will be made more visible in this blog over time.
You doesn’t work? Only apologize?
qualcuno banni bacarospo! 😛
Ok, some things dont work (and this, maybe, just compared to *your * expectation?), but what the heck?
Many things in my life dont work either, but I take it from there anjd am trying to improve.
I think, if you cannot apport other, more constructive things (like how to handle high duty servers in detail etc.), maybe you want to STFU and enjoy what you have (without paying)?
An alternative: Present the devleopers with a 100k Euros donation, I am sure they will use it instantly to contract the b est UNIX cracks they can get…
Just FTR: I am fine with how hattrick works, and actually admire the setup compared to so many others, but that is mayb e because I actually work to some extent with website/server maintenance. In all cases, anyway, communications is the way to go: There is nothing wrong with a flaw, the important thing is that your clients always kn ow where they are.
I’m curious, do you play hattrick? If so, what are your teams?
This it fantastic, it helps you in your languages level. Here you can improve, english, francaise, italiano, español…..
Well, i really think that this has been i nice idea, it could help us to understand why something, we don’t really understand why has been done , has been done.
Bufff, it seems like a tongue twister, but it is not! what i tried to say is: here we will meet you, and we will realice why things are done how they are done.
Bye and nice to meet you!
Thanx to Hattrick developers to get the site back online as soon as possible…
Some of the reactions here are just pafetic…
A HD crash is something what nobody wants… Shit Happens!!!
Keep Up the good work!!
Thx & Greetzzz
I agree with MindedCobra6!
good work HT Team! Keep on – great Idea the HT online Game!
Wow…excellent,and about the youth academy please fix it
I think the url is kinda hard to remember. Why didn’t you use something like blog.hattrick.org ?
And could you use some subdomain to hattrick.org as a mirror for this in the future?
Well,hmm, so far… you’ve been meeting and greeting people but you haven’t been sharing so many thoughts on your developpers work. Just’ve just been more defensiv than Wikileaks PR people on Assange’s home address, regarding the crash, So, you guys bought shitty hardware with a crap service contract, so what..let’s hear about software and your brains!
Could you hire more than 10 doctor to fix YA ?
Maybe is for that reason that HT still injured!
Let’s go back to old limit! 255 will do the trick! 😉
We’re working on the YA. It’s just the disk checking we’re waiting for, it just seems like it takes forever. 🙁
It’s fantastic! Very fashionable blog!
How much did you pay for it! I want it!
Good idea! Good blog:) Good luck!
looks like an interesting reading.
is it possible we can see the players on the field in the near feature?like a movie.
One more thing. This blog doesn’t seem to have a home button or any other way to reach the home page (other than editing the url of course).
Interesting reading! Thx!
Sorry for this post but..
is it only me that can’t see anyone on transfer list?! i think it isnt ok..
U have time to open blog but u can fix hattrick.
Ciao, sto ancora socando alla grande per Beel, sono proprio niubbo
vamos! deberían compartir esto en otros idiomas (español e italiano)… pongan a trabajar a los LAs!!!! que se ganen su supporter!! =/
Very good idea .I would like to see your photoes and your office photoes .It is nice to see a successfull group when they are working.
Good luck and Regards
Nice idea but the worst moment…!
The idea of the workers talking to the users is good. Obviously you have some ideas about what you are going to tell us. Unfortunately it will attract all the crackpots who have a gripe with Hattrick. Ce la vie!
Having said that, I hope your new venture is a success and that your new staff can help you solve your storage problems.
Feels like antidating, never mind… I enjoy the game for what it is.
Nice to meet you guys! And very nice job that you people have over there. Would like to help you and I think that the problem start on the forums. As you say a small thing could cause a major problem and I think that the problem is and start in the conferencias. Please check that.
Great, finally something I can do during lectures. Btw. great idea, right now your communication with community is almost perfect. Congratz to this.
Btw. hope this won’t die in a few weeks, but will live for very long time.
Well, nice to meet you then… if this is the place to meet you.
Any chance you’ll be posting game code here too? 😀
after reading this, i have a few questions left:
I’m assuming there are 2 disk systems: the newer, larger one and the older, smaller one.
initially everything was on the new one and the backup was restored there. then the main system moved to the old one while forums remained on the new one. is it still that way? and where did youth go when it reopened?
you said you managed to cancel the parity check. that is on the new disc or on the old one? the text says “youth disc”. which one is that? according to other info there was no youth system at all at that time? a check on the old system (the target of the move) was never mentioned, but on the other hand, if you cancelled the check on the new one, why was there still a need to move to the old disc? it is all a bit confusing, maybe you can clarify things.
This is great, keep up the good work!
em primeiro lugar, sou brasileiro, estou dando uma olhadinha nesse blog para dizer, que vocês estão de parabéns pela iniciativa de vocês!!! abraços….
At least the HT team started to work immediately and got it fixed in under two days or so. Enjoy what you have! 😀
“This is where you meet us, the people developing this game.”
Why don’y u play the game, so u meet us, the people playing it?
Can you look to make the logo at the top a link back to http://hattrickdevblog.org ?
