What is Midgard Community?

- Midgard Community is a Ragnarok Online community that provides various information regarding the world of Ragnarok. We have a Ragnarok Server Listing service that provides space for server owners to list their Ragnarok Online Private Server with us. We provide a download system to the Ragnarok Community which houses multiple files that range from NPC sprites, Class Sprites, Palettes, Maps, Items, Monsters, Cutins/Illustrations, Models, etc. !

 
Does Midgard Community have a Database?

- Midgard Community provides both a Renewal and Pre-Renewal database for our community. Unfortunately, the database is not integrated with the main site. In both databases, you'll find information regarding various Ragnarok items, monsters, and maps. We also have various calculators and informational tables.

 
What is Midgard Community's Download system?

- The download system found in Midgard Community's forum houses tons of files that range from NPC sprites, Class Sprites, Palettes, Maps, Items, Monsters, Cutins/Illustrations, Models, etc. In order to get any files from the system, you must be an active member in the forum. The plan for the download system is to be the #1 stop to get files for a server owner's Ragnarok Server.

 
API (Application Programming Interface)

As suggested by a member of the community, I've worked diligently with a fellow friend on implementing an API for Midgard's database. When you send a request for either an item or monster, you'll get different structured outputs returned back to you depending on what you've searched for.

    }
]



However, not anyone can fetch what they want. When you create an account through the main site, if setup, there will be a token assigned to your username. You will need this token in order to fetch data from the database.
 
Required Fields:

  • api_key
  • id (Item / Monster ID)

Optional Field:

  • type - If no type is given, you'll directly get an item. To get monster, set Type's value to 1.

Update:

 

Midgard-Community (MC) is in its final stage of development! The main site has been coming along nicely and I'm very proud of it!

 

To give everyone a preview of how the main site will look,

Glimpse of a server's page.

These are the only screenshots I will provide to show a preview! Everything else will be kept a secret :> ! I've had a couple of people try out my site and walk through it and experience it as a server owner as well as from a player's standpoint; needless to say, their experience has been great!

 

So for that, I'm glad to see that the site is headed in the right direction!  Stay tuned for the final product!

I would like to thank everyone for taking their time and writing feedback towards my project! For that, I would like to welcome Midgard-Community to the public!

The public may now access Midgard-Community at http://www.midgard-community.com !

I hope server owners / server players enjoy new and different features that are offered through the site! I can't wait to start seeing servers being listed :)!

Hey everyone! I think it's time to add some more 'liveness' to our main page by bringing in more servers to register with us! For this, I'm offering free ad spots for a whole free month!
 
If you visit our ad page, you'll notice I have two advertisement spots labeled. One being Kafra's Bulletin and Kafra's Cover. For new servers that are going to be listed, I'll be giving them a spot (server owner chooses) in Kafra's Bulletin for a full 30 days for free*

 
* Terms & Guidelines
Before getting your ad listed with us, there are a few guidelines a server owner must adhere to:

  • Ad Dimension: 700 x 90
  • Your server must be newly listed with us
  • You must have a 24/7 up server
  • Must follow our Server Owner Rules
  • You must have a link on your server's homepage that redirects users to review your site on Midgard-Community
  • You must email us at [email protected] with the following criteria (taken from our ad spot):
    • Your username registered here at Midgard-Community
    • You must show your server’s banner (As an attachment or as a link)
    • Name of Advertisement section(s) (names are listed below)
    • Target URL (i.e. landing page)
    • and, the spot you are going to choose for that specific advertisement section (i.e. from review listing, review listing: low rate, etc).

 

I will only be accepting the first 25 newly listed servers! This will be a first come first served basis. Please check the availability down below for available spots.
 
Availability
To keep track of available spots, here is the current list:

Thanks a lot my friend! In order for it to stay up, I need visitors :)

 


 

Update:

 

Free advertisement is still available! It'll be available for the first 25 new servers listed! There is no timeframe for you to get the free advertisement, there is however, a first come first served basis. First 25 new servers to email me with the proper guidelines (listed above) will get their free spot! 

 

Moving along now! I've been playing around with app making and I created a very basic app for Midgard Community! It currently only runs on iOS and no other platform. 

uC5Wy0l.png

As I've mentioned, it's a very basic app. and what I mean by that is, the app is used for gathering quick information regarding Migard Community. You get quick access to email function, news, events, Twitter feed, and links to our pre-re and renewal databases! 

 

You may check out more information on our landing page: http://midgard-community.com/landing/

 

It is currently not available at the moment. I'll be releasing it in the near future!

Count me in, im finalizing my 3rd job woe, and Role Player server now.

Looking forward to it being listed :)

 

Update:

 
I would like to thank everyone! Midgard Community officially launched on November 25th 2014 and I've noticed a potential growth already of users both on the boards and main page! To end off 2014, we've reached 104 users on the main page with 7 published servers and 90 user registrations in December alone!

Heres to 2015! Happy New Years everyone !

Update:

 
It's taken a little long, but it has finally arrived! Server owners now have access to a "Review us at MC!" button for their servers! Head over to your account and you can see the preview of the button! The output is in HTML and if you don't like the button, you can always remove it!

Little information everyone should know!

 

During the migration of our boards, we lost a bit of topics / posts / and files. Sadly, the SQL file got corrupted that held these. However, all accounts / customizations, etc. have been saved. 

 

To begin with, the boards didn't have too many topics / posts / files to begin with, so it wasn't a huge loss! I've taken extra precaution to make daily backups of our boards (and of course our homepage and database).

 

MC just needs support now from our fellow members to help repopulate our boards :) Head on over: http://www.board.midgard-community.com

Major update:

 

Midgard Community is under going a new design change. We're going for a more "flat", friendly and pleasing to the eye sort of appeal.

 

Here's a snippet:

You may view the full site here: http://www.midgard-community.com 

 

PS: Keep in mind, the site is still changing so the design interface isn't done 100%.

 

 

Please note that, we are welcome to hearing about comments regarding the design! You may comment about the design by replying, or, you can PM me about it :)!

Another design update! We feel this design is more "lively" compared to our plain boring previous one. Once browsing our site, you'll notice I've added FontAwesome which is a big step to our design update. It cuts our useless tiny images and saves browsers' time loading pages.

New update: Subscription System

 

We added a Subscription System integration with our site: http://www.midgard-community.com/subscription-system/

 

With this system, individuals receive:

  • Post notifications of new posts (News, updates, information)
  • Newsletters (when appropriate)
  • and most important, receive emails when a new server is listed

 

Yes, that's correct. You will receive an email whenever at new server is listed with us. This is especially helpful for those individuals who want to be on top of new server listings without having to dig around our site. This is really beneficial for those who are looking for servers as well!

We are creating a custom section in our forums just for Reviews: the Review Bulletin. Basically this section will only be used/needed if individuals need more room to write a better in-depth review about a server.

 

This special section for reviews comes with labels, recent reviews, and a server label filter. You may check out the progress of the section by visiting our forums!

Midgard Community is introducing brand new support for Favicons across multiple platforms (favicons support). When browsing around our forums, you can notice it is mobile responsive. Yet, our Favicon wasn’t and wasn’t suitable across all platforms.


Instead of having a single favicon.ico file, we have all the pictures and HTML code needed for a cool, mobile- and tablet-ready favicon. Our favicon is now perfect for all platforms:


  • PC and Mac, as usual
  • iPhone and iPad
  • Android phones and tablets
  • Windows 8 tablets
  • And more…

 


Here is what our icon looks on platforms:


Screen_Shot_2015-05-24_at_12.58.19_PM.thScreen_Shot_2015-05-24_at_12.58.25_PM.thScreen_Shot_2015-05-24_at_12.58.31_PM.thScreen_Shot_2015-05-24_at_1.10.08_PM.thu  


 


List of Favicon files for platforms being used:


favicon.ico


  • Used by IE, and also by some other browsers if we are not careful.

favicon-16x16.png


  • The classic favicon, displayed in the tabs.

favicon-32x32.png


  • For Safari on Mac OS.

  • iPhone and iPad users can turn web pages into icons on their home screen. Such link appears as a regular iOS native application. When this happens, the device looks for a specific picture. The 57×57 resolution is convenient for non-retina iPhone with iOS6 or prior. Learn more in Apple docs.

  • Same as apple-touch-icon-57x57.png, for non-retina iPhone with iOS7.

  • Same as apple-touch-icon-57x57.png, for “default” requests, as some devices may look for this specific file. This picture may save some 404 errors in your HTTP logs. See Apple docs

apple-touch-icon-precomposed.png


  • Same as apple-touch-icon.png, expect that is already have rounded corners (but neither drop shadow nor gloss effect).

Download System

 

We like to welcome our own download system into the public now! We recently just opened up our download system: http://www.midgard-community.com/the-download-push/

 

The future of our download system is to be the #1 housing area for all Ragnarok catered downloads ranging from: tools, sprites, gears, sheets, maps, etc.! Ever since we opened up our download system, we are being populated with all sorts of new files!

Month of May Digest for MC!

 

The month of May has been a busy one for MC! With the rebranding of our main site and forum and partial on our pre-renewal database, we've hit great peeks! We have over 32 servers now currently listed with 8 being newly listed in the month of May (big step from being 1/2 a month). MC has been getting a lot of hits and new visitors everyday in May ranging from about 30-100 visits a day and sometimes peeking to 150-350. We have gotten 31 new accounts registered with MC in the Month of May!

post-276-0-05717400-1433191166_thumb.png

 

 

Our downloads system (ever since it has been publicly accessible) we've hit 35 files uploaded within about 2-3 days. 

 

I'd like to thank everyone for helping Midgard Community grow! Can't wait to see what June will bring MC!

Site Optimization and Security

 

I've recently finished optimizing Midgard Community for faster loading speeds and security and now Midgard Community:

  • Loads 2x faster
  • Uses 60% less bandwidth
  • Has 65% fewer requests
  • And is way more secure

Good news everyone! (insert Farnsworth voice)
 

Midgard Community is even more faster! We've drastically cut down page speed loads by 5-7 seconds. Each page now should be loading, approximately, 500ms to 2 seconds.

Month of June Digest for MC!

 

June has been booming for MC! We created a Ragnarok Tools list on our site (http://www.midgard-community.com/ragnarok-tools/) as well as introduced MC's Ragnarok Simulator (http://midgard-community.com/simulator/)! We received nothing but positive feedback for our Simulator and we are so thankful to everyone! We are also working on MC's Feature Plan (http://www.board.midgard-community.com/feature-plan/) which gives the community some future insight into what is being planned for MC! 

 

June has been more busy than May! And we would like to thank the community for that!

 

Here are a few stats:
