I just saw this. What's this about?
Just curious, sorry if I wasn't supposed to bring attention to them :)

I had posted the link to these missions in IRC a few weeks ago. Seems like work in progress, since the last time I remember, the pages to those missions was blank.

So in all actuality, I hadn't seen this before. Some time ago when bren2010 was still a dev for HTS, weekend had him whip out some remote missions as an addition. That said, bren2010 no longer devs for HTS, so that idea has been scrapped.. I'm not entirely sure as to why that is still publicly available.
At this point, there are two options as to what is up with that. Just update the box and get access to the dead directory moved. Or we could restart the dead idea for having remote missions. Though the idea for remote missions is kinda vague in itself. What do you guys think?

What are the remote missions?
I don't even know :)
It might be easier to tell you if I want them if I knew what they are/were.

Well that's the thing. That's why I said that the term remote missions is pretty vague in itself. I'm not a hundred percent sure on what the goal was for the missions in the first place. Or what they were specifically trying to get at..
Like me and Ninjex were talking about on irc, I think it ties into the overall need for new missions on HTS rather than these specific 'Remote Missions'.

Yeah more missions are always good. If they're remote missions, great, if not, great. :)

I asked Kage what was the low down on the remote missions and his reply:
Code: Select all
<Kage> It was for a missions API
<Kage> People could submit missions to our system and users could complete them for no points.
<Kage> If enough people liked particlar remote missions, we would later investigate implementing them officially.

Knowing this, I kinda like the idea. Just me of course, but it's an easy way to have user submitted shiz as a beta kinda thing.

Yeah, that sounds awesome.

It seems like it would be fairly easy to implement if you just kept a database of the missions and had users figure out their own hosting, but if they were hosted on HTS owned servers it would be harder.

I believe if it was hosted on hts servers, there would be a lot of security issues involved. However, if that was to happen, the submitted content would probably have to be reviewed before approval, which would be a tedious task.

Yeah, that and the ease of development would make the self-hosted option look better.

There could be a system where users with >x points could review the missions, to free up time for the admins. There would still need to be a malware\pirated content\etc. check first though..
