Hello world!

Hey guys. So here it is. With another reboot in a less than a year after the last one.
It is unfortunate yes but we got hacked pretty hard. Why? Mostly because due to its nature (Free games) MNB.net gets a decent amount of traffic. It appears that some sad people want that traffic diverted to them.

So Through the forums and then everywhere a malware installed a SEO SPAM code which was effectively stealing traffic from search engines and directing them to some websites that are shitty and most importantly had nothing to do with urb games.

I’ve been on the phone with a lot of people. From the guys at sitelock and my host, in order to restore the mailing privileges this website used to have.  I had to clean my stuff first they said. It was a reasonable request but in practice it was a substantial pain in the butt. You see, if I were to design a SOE malware I’d make it very hard to remove and hide it not entirely but i would fragment that shit all across multiple areas of the database of the user. Luckily I spend most of my time designing crazy flash games for misfits so that’s not gonna happen. But regardless, this is what the task looked like. Go thru the code of this WP portal AND the db and then, hand pick the bits of code that contain that garbage. If you forget some of it well it propagates again. Literally cancer.

So I need to move forward here. I’m in the middle of coding MNB3 which I think is the best game I made so far. I contains everything I’ve learned in the past 20 years as far as coding and game mechanics. I’m very proud of it. But if I mess around with this site for days then I get entangled in a process that just takes me away from making the game.

So here we are. Again and for the last time hopefully. With a leaner, lighter and more importantly safer portal which had the same functions has the last one but less fat and unnecessary features that would just be clunky and susceptible for attacks. So you guys can do what you do, post vids and amazing guides and stories. I’ll keep making games. Thanks for sticking around folks.

    Compared to the old forum I feel satisfied with this one. I can’t really complain anyway since I can’t code for nothin.

    Heyo URB. New site looks nice. I saw the website come up at like, 4 in the morning. But, I was busy with school work ALL day and night, boring…

    Anyway, I hope everything goes better man, good luck with everything!

    Looking good.
    Considering , despite all the functions of the former forums, people almost always just posted plain text, an occasional picture and sometimes a video.
    This time around I will not be so lazy and get down to the workings around here a lot faster.
    Elijah Jouse Olivarria? Have you ever posted somewhere on an URB site before?
    Currently this truly feels like being part of some small squad doing tactical war maneuvers. 🙂
    Let’s URB ON commanders into 2017 and beyond.

      Response to Lance: No I never was able to post on the forum (due to me never having my own computer except one my school recently have me) but I have been looking and playing on the forum for a year

    Good to see everything is more or less back in order. New site looks sweet. Will try to test on mobile as well and make a small report on that.

    Ahhh so we were under attack by more than 1 idiot…just as well, I hate idiots running amok, that’s why I left the polandball wiki. Half of them were real dipsticks with nothing good to say and had real stuck up ideas… But that’s last years news. What were this lot of idiots doing URB?, hacking games?, altering the codes to cause glitches?, posting absoultly not funny stupid stuff on the posts?, being mean to people?. (I’m refering to the ones that attacked the site.)

    Overall, it’s good to teach those people a lesson:), good job pal!:). *Claps*
    On the note of seeing the site, I bet I was last to see the new site, ahhh well:P.
