    We have a JR Xbox Club and I'll be getting playstation organized soon enough. I don't want everything PC orientated so I'll be putting a link to our xbox club and other console groups soon. Unfortunatley there is no widget or API to show members in the club etc.. I do agree to open forums for the official console groups. Maybe if you want to open one for Xbox for now and a general section under a Console category in the forum? ***Moved to Accepted***

    Just a small update, Ark is here in beta at JR. Myself, Calystos, Chris and Frosty have been and are all working getting things working correctly. I've also started playing ark and checking out what the hype is about and surprisingly for the first time I've properly played on a server that we maintain in years. I'm looking for people to join our server to help test the stability of the server. If you'd like to test out and play on our Official Ark server please favourite and join our Ark server: ark.jrnetwork.net:7777 If people like Ark on JR and it get's popular we are also looking to setup a Scorched Earth Ark server. While our server is online we may periodically add modifications to the server while our server is in Beta. Please note we are also testing our server hardware with Ark. Any problems that get reported will be quickly resolved. If you find any bugs please post them to the Gaming Server community help: https://jrnetwork.net/forums/forum/404-gaming-server-support/ It's been a very exciting time recently at JR, we are releasing new servers one by one when ever we get a chance. Unfortunately I have been too busy to post an update but we will have a dev blog posted soon on everything that is happening and has happened on JR. We hope you continue to support and enjoy the services that JR provides. More and more is scheduled to come to JR very very very soon!

    I thought it'd be interesting to get to know the members a bit more. So tell us, what do you do in life? Do you work, do you game, do you go to school? I work full time at Harvey Norman as a sales assistant and technical advisor. With my free time I work on this here website. I play guitar and love music but I also like to game in my free time.

    Better rates for harvesting would be great, at least 3x. This is just a mod I would really want: Classic Flyers. One of arks last updates made flying dinos incredibly useless. Max stamina is lower than most dinos which makes all flying dinos useless. A lot of people don't really use flying dinos but for some they are very important. just a suggestion

    Hey guys, As I want to play more games with the community I want to know what multiplayer games on console you'd like to play. Please post a couple of games underneath that you would be interested in playing as a group. Please list what console it's on and how many at a time can play, after I will try to organise official events for these games! Thanks, Jamie

    There is a need for end to end encryption it guarantees us protection from any malicious party. Taking an extreme example of removing a dictator from power to be replaced with a democratic system. If end to end encryption had a backdoor political enemies could be eliminated by a rogue state, a resistance to an oppressive dictatorship crushed. Without encryption anyone can see what we're sending, having a backdoor means we may as well not be using encryption in the first place. I know my example is extreme but it applies to everyday situations so here's a more realistic example. You send a message over WhatsApp to one of your friends with the dates for your holiday, which you belive to be safely encrypted . This message gets intercepted by a hacker who uses the backdoor to get the dates you're on holiday. Chances are they have your name as well, they can look up where you're registered to vote, what is legally your permanent residence. So it's likely where you're registered to vote is going to be empty while your away, the hacker can sell this information to someone who can break into your house and steal your stuff or do it themselves.

    My galaxy S6 just lost so much battery barely got through a day at school! I didn't really use fast charging with my s6 in the end because my plug broke and it was rated for different current and voltage than my other plugs. But the OnePlus 3T has an amazing battery life, and dash charging is so quick! The S6 is still certainly got a good enough spec to last a while apart from your battery is likely to get really bad. The 3T is definitely worth the price, camera doesn't really match up to other flagship devices but for the price I really can't complain Edit: The camera on the OnePlus 3T is fine for taking pictures of my cats

    Recently, JR was put under a 24 hour downtime on some services. This was due to a major software and server upgrade that was needed. We are still working on some things to come online but everything has been transfered correctly now. Most of our gaming and voice servers are offline till these are sorted on the new server. We expect them to be ready at some point today. We apologise for the delay in everything getting back online but when you have to move around a terabyte of data and make sure it works on a completely different server there is hiccups. Anyway, more to come soon. Please read the developer blogs found in the help center if you are interested in detail what is changing and happening at JR. When live changes happen a blog post will be posted. (There will be a developer update at some stage today) I hope that you understand why we were down for so long and enjoy the things to come

    I'm a student at Bristol, studying Computer Science. Aside from that, I do various work for the University, basically tricking unsuspecting sixth form students into thinking University is a good idea (jk, it can be a good idea). I also work part time tutoring A level maths. Outside of work stuff, I'm part of Bristol RAG which means I do a mix of promoting and helping them with events and also managing their website (badly :P).

    It's been nearly a month since we posted our last development topic. While we haven't posted anything we have been rather busy. Website Removed old JRCash system for a new system, This will allow products to be bought from the JR store in trade for JR Cash. Unfortunately this took away JRCash from minecraft, which we are working on to bring back as well as other servers Tweaked mobile slightly Added full steam integration. This shows what games you've been playing, what you are currently playing, if you are on or offline. To use this all you have to do is login with steam. Added marketplace so users can trade JR Cash between themselves for virtual services or virtual goods. Small nav UI Changes Added custom images within the forum to make things a little more friendly Gameservers Added RUST Added Ark: Survival Evolved and added mods: Autotorch Stackable foundations Added JC2MP and added new mods: Plane Reverse Jobs (Drive people to locations for money) Join Leave messages Wingsuite (Double Tab shift) AI Traffic, (Sea, Air and Road) Added a gas system, when you run out of the gas the car doesn't move. There are many locations around the server to fill up (Gas stations) Added a bank system so you can store your money even when the server resets Chat bubbles, occur when you chat automatically Scoreboard (Press alt) Anti-spam and 10 minute announcement added to show users where JR is Added Buy panel, you can buy items from the money you earn in jobs Added better admin system Social Media Changes Updated about page and small tweaks to facebook Server Changes Moved to a faster better server to handle all that we host Tweaked VM's resource usage Updated all packages across all servers to latest versions Working on PHP 7 on main server currently but at the moment we have tested and had a catastrophic failure. Hopefully we can resolve this issue soon to bring the latest in PHP for speed, stability and security to JR soon.

    So another post raised this question in my head. A lot of people fight to stop the NSA from monitoring your internet activity, or from companies selling your data to each other. This can be considered a violation of privacy, since your internet activity is meant to only be shared by you or with your permission. I am quite conflicted on what I think on this topic. A great interview of Edward Snowden (which I could not find now ) made me consider taking my privacy more seriously, and ever since I have downloaded the Opera browser, with extra VPN add-ons and such, hoping to make it more difficult for my information to be thrown around. However, I still think of how this actually solves any problems at all. Sometimes, on the other hand, I get ads on youtube that I find great and I understand that they have been specifically targetted towards me. The other extreme is spotify, which tailors playlists to my tastes based on every song I've ever listened to on their service, and it works marvelously. It's a weird dilemma and I don't really know where I stand on it. What do you guys think?

    Whether I'm working on something over a long period of time, playing games, just relaxing, or even going to bed, podcasts are one of my go to listening choices. What are some of your favourite podcasts and what are they about? Also post a Youtube/Soundcloud link so we can here it also! Here's some of mine. Rooster Teeth Podcast: Sometimes touches on games, but most of the time it's talking about their week, things they have been up to, and random crap that has happened to them before. Regularly tell a story they've told before, but whats to be expected after 422 weekly episodes! Mostly has people who also work at Rooster Teeth but sometimes has special guests. Always Open (Also hosted by Rooster Teeth): Essentially the female version of the rooster teeth podcast, but with cocktails, more dirty humor and your primary source of Barbara's puns. Also, where else on the internet would you have the beautiful Jessica Nigri talking about her steamed panties??? Maybe her Facebook page.... but here too! Again, mostly has people who also work at Rooster Teeth but sometimes has special guests. The Co-Optional Podcast: They mostly talk about video games. Favourite podcast on the interwebs! Hosted by Total Biscuit, with Jessie Cox and Dodger as well as a special guest (who is regularly WoWCrendor or Sam Strippin). Lots of lols, weekly, and 3 hours long. Primary source of Dodger eating, Jessie Cox bitching about Square Enix/Blizzard, and Total Biscuit ignoring both of them.

    Started watching Boys Only Club today only has 5 episodes so far, but it's just StevenSuptic (ex-SourceFed) & Reina Scully (ex-SourceFed, CrunchyRoll). It's just them talking makes for background noise mostly but it's just them talking to each other and it is quite amusing.

    Yes it is a brilliant idea in one respect, security for business sense and personal sense is always welcomed. It stops people tracking your whereabouts, can help provide some safety as well. Problem is for all the people who commit crime and horrible acts they have security too which I don't agree with. This topic will always be debated but without any form of encryption we would not be safe from the numerous hackers and script kiddies out there. Jamie

    Big news! JR Cash can now be used to buy products such as JR Premium and webhosting from JR. JR Cash has evolved away from just a basic points system in to a fully blown virtual currency. I've been testing this for a while and I've just made the changes live. JR Cash can be made currently only by creating topics and posting at the forum but soon you will be able to make cash by playing games at JR! The amount of cash that will be made when you post topics is currently: 25 for each new topic 10 for each reply to a topic 5 extra cash for Premium members when they reply to a topic Soon you will be able to make cash from posting blogs, images to the gallery and playing games. This cash will allow you to purchase rewards such as game codes, memberships for xbox, playstation, JR and more. The current conversion rate if you are buying products which cost euro is 1000 - 1 euro. This is a test run and this may change depending on how the economy performs. While this is a currency on JR, this is a virtual currency and JR Cash is worthless in the real world. It can not be exchanged for real money and can only be gained by using JR services. Side note: If you are paying for goods or services at JR with JR Cash, if compatible with the service it will list pay with JR Cash! ALSO! Let me introduce you to the JR Marketplace: https://jrnetwork.net/forums/forum/430-marketplace/ This area allows members to exchange JR Cash for virtual goods and services, we are looking forward to see where this will lead in the future. More will be posted soon about JR Cash and the use of it within our gaming services! We hope you like the implementation so far.

    Share your game screenshots below. I guess those of us with more recent Nvidia cards have a bit of an advantage in some games due to Ansel I'll start off with one of mine from The Witcher 3 and one from Mass Effect Andromeda. They may take a while to load as they are taken using the super resolution feature of Nvidia Ansel.

    iPhone 6 its the exact same as my mom's phone. It isn't the best when I got it about a year ago now. But it does what I need a phone to do, and I'm happy with it. The only thing that does annoy me with phones like this, is that they are always updating the versions of the phones so things like emojis look different or add/change them. I don't need that so I ignore the update then it pops up whenever I open my phone every now and then.

    Yeah I have that exact problem with the battery - I've literally started bringing my charger to uni. I also got a portable charger for when I'm out, it's quite bad really It just about lasts if I don't bring a charger but if I wanted to stay later somewhere then it'd run out. The only redeeming feature in terms of battery life is ultra power saving, even if I'm nearly out it adds on a significant amount extra.

    I currently use the samsung galaxy S7 Edge and have been for the past year and I am looking to upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and then sell my current phone. I am happy with the samsung galaxy as I have always been an andriod user, the devices size and screen resolution are comfortable for me and I have found no issues in regards to what it's used for, The data coverage in my area is fairly poor regardless so to make comparisons would not be accurate But the look for the S8 Plus interests me and if not that device I will then be going for the LG G6

    I use a Galaxy S6, had one for about 2 years now (nearly) and never really had a problem. Fast charging is also a saviour sometimes (though it wouldn't be needed if the battery life was longer). I hope to keep my S6 for at least another 2 years, in the past I'd change my phone every 2 years but I don't feel like I need to atm. My friend has had one (well I think it's the 3T) for a while now and really likes it. The fast charging is even better than anything I've seen before, it's a really decent phone. Definitely don't think you could get one that good for anywhere near that price with any of the bigger brands.

    I've just upgraded to a One Plus 3T (had it for just over 24 hours, so these opinions aren't fully informed yet) Side note: Jamie do you have the "1 + =" easter egg in the default calculator app? So far it's been great, although I appear to have some issues with Bluetooth turning itself off so I've missed a few texts I got today. I upgraded from a Galaxy S6, I got sick of touchwiz. I'm loving the OP3T being so close to stock android. So far it's the dream stock android experience. Also the S6 limited the volume of my bluetooth headphones so much I started carrying around an aux lead just to listen to music at a decent volume using my headphones. But with my OP3T, that's non-issue apart from the fact I could seriously damage my ears because my bluetooth headphones can go really bloody loud. I've got the midnight black limited edition which only came in 128GB. The real selling point for me is the snapdragon 821, I want a high performance phone at the time of purchase so I don't have to worry about it slowing down within the next 2 years. Battery life is awesome, had it off charge for about 12 hours today, 3 hours 10 minutes screen on time and it's still reporting 4 hours left on the battery at 25%. Overall very pleased with it, definitely an upgrade from my S6

    I use a One Plus 2. Reason being I had Samsung, they ALL gave me trouble. Network drop outs all the time and battery issues were the key problems for me. I use my phone for Work, JR and Social stuff. This means I need decent internet, speed and a good battery life. I did have a HTC One m8, but unfortunately it fell down the toilet while I was cleaning it. It basically was on par to my One Plus 2, but the added addition of a fingerprint sensor was soooo handy. Unfortunately, HTC was so expensive for their new range which I think doesn't come close to One Plus. After my phone fell down the toilet I got a M8s from HTC on contract... All I can say is what it was the biggest pile of garbage I ever tried. Outside looked just like the HTC One M8 but the inside was running a lower processor. Hated it, was so laggy. Back on topic, the One Plus 2 I got was second hand but had 4 GB ram and 64 GB storage. I've recently updated to nougat manually and I must say. Battery life is awesome. I get near to a day and a half charge with moderate use.

    Over the last couple of years I've played games less and less (mostly due to time). One I have actually found time to play though is openTTD, not sure how most of their public servers work but could be a good one to look into. Whenever I've played it with friends (on a private server), it's been a really fun game to play.
