I’m not sure if this is the right place to put this message, but the official website for DDA (http://en.cataclysmdda.com/) has the link to the forum going to the old SimpleMachines forum. It’s not a big deal, but it is slightly confusing at first until one sees the Announcement message about moving forums and might give some the impression that that project is dead (since the last messages are from 2017).
I’ve been trying to grokk the site code for a while now and I’m making no progress. Either I’m missing some data somehow, or ruby is just insanely obtuse.
I’m afraid I’m personally not very familiar with Ruby myself. Perl or PHP is more my game.
Is the website code available on a git server somewhere? If not, it might be an idea to dump it on github. At the very least, it would allow interested parties with more experience in Ruby to have a look over the thing and see where changes might be made.
