Here's a list of software updates Redump.org is in need of:

  • Implement https/ssl

  • Update Wiki software

  • Implement Multisession disc additions

  • Document XML input fields for DICUI / Implement XML upload to avoid unnecessary filling out of field information to reduce human error.

  • Switch Dreamcast to bin/cue.

We have a very talented web dev willing to volunteer his help to implement these updates (bparker of retroarch). I hope we can prevent Redump from becoming a dusty museum that ages along with the technology we're preserving.

I agree with user7/dizzzy's suggestions.

Also, I want a (USA, Australia) region added. There are NUMEROUS Maxis PC games that were dumped in the USA and Australia that are incorrectly listed as "World". This is completely unacceptable. I have a USA copy of Marble Drop that matches, http://redump.org/disc/6064/, and I deliberately haven't posted a verification for it because you guys would change it to "World".

Implementing https is so easy. Just put the site behind Cloudflare and turn it on. It's free and provides a lot of other benefits.

+1 to these requests!

I also agree with user7's and ajshell1's requests.

F1ReB4LL also has a thread full of requests in the staff forum. Mr. iR0b0t is never here, so I guess none of this will get done.

It's just a matter of allowing bparker in to do the work. iRobot you getting tired of this place? smile

Additionally: ringcodes that do not contain SID codes are not necessarily bad (if the disc itself does not have the codes on it, which a few do not), so should not automatically have yellow status.

Yes, i had it yesterday after forum update too, and only on my older browser version, new versions worked. Anyways, it should have fixed itself after cache update. If you can confirm...

PX-760A (+30), PX-W4824TA (+98), GSA-H42L (+667), GDR-8164B (+102), SH-D162D (+6), SOHD-167T (+12)

Cache cleared, works great.

I absolutely don't like seeing "Re: To Do: Redump.org Software Updates" written with large bold letters in every post.

You can quit and nothing can bother you on public forum.:)

And we can close the project to not to bother anyone and make everyone happy.

And i would like to request auto log out after a certain amount of time without user activity. ( i don't know if it was implemeted in recent updates, though...)

Yeah, same. It came with the forum update. I will modify the forum code and comment it out.

It was previously set to 20 minutes due to users' request. Try it out, it should work.

+1!

I have another suggestion: Is it possible extend the "My Dumps" page to allow downloading a .dat file that only contains the user's owned discs/dumps?

I'm a bit late to this party (*waves n00b flag*) but I wholeheartedly second this suggestion. Plain HTTP is super easy to sniff, either while it transits the internet or when a user is sharing an unencrypted network (e.g. coffee shop wifi).

Having your traffic sniffed is not such a big deal if all they got was the site content (oh no, somebody might be able to see the forum posts!), but a malicious person sniffing the traffic can get the PHP session keys (allowing them to masquerade as a user) or even user passwords if the attacker gets a chance to eavesdrop on the login activity.


This might a known issue that's being worked on and if so, sorry for blabbing on about it lol. Just wanted to give my $0.02 on the matter. Cloudflare and/or Let's Encrypt make setting up SSL much simpler than it used to be smile
