Over the last two years, Maxcape has grown from literally nothing, into the much used tool that it is today. Over the last few months, I've been wondering why we have all these people coming to the site every single day, but no way for us to interact with each other. The comments on front page news posts is a start, but it is extremely limited.
As some of you my remember, I was originally hesitant to include ads here, but I was left with no choice because of my financial situation at the time. Since then, I have recovered and gotten back on my feet. While this has left me with less time to work on programming, it has left me with the ability to cover costs on my own.
Today, I'm happy to announce that I have fully removed ads from maxcape.com! If you see any that I might have missed, please let me know so that I can remove it. I always feel like I should give back to everyone for the love and support they have provided for this site, and this is, in my opinion, a great way to do it.
For those of you who would like to help out in some way, there is a paypal donate button on the main page that you can use to donate anywhere from a penny to however much you can spare. These donations are always greatly appreciated, and I personally reply to each one with a thank you and a personal letter. While donators used to receive Ad-Free browsing, I will be finding a new advantage for them.
In other news, I feel like I owe you guys an update, and an explanation of sorts. In recent months, I have been very quiet, with no new updates to the site and no updates. This is, as partially explained above, at least partially due to the fact that I have work and school, and have much less free time than before. However, that's hardly an excuse in my eyes.
I have two other projects currently, one a clan website for a friends clan, and one a personal project that I am receiving college credits for. While I'd rather not go into detail to either currently, I will say that I have been slacking on these as well.
There's nothing to blame on this besides myself. So, from today forwards, I am resolving to get back into programming work. I am going to finish the forums (sorry about that forums link in the navbar...), then finish my friends site, and then get back into active development of maxcape. I have some pretty big plans that I think you would all enjoy, but more on that later.
Thank you everyone for sticking with the site and continuing to use it. It means a lot to me that you are all still here after my longer-than-expected break, and I hope you all will enjoy what I have planned for the future.

Winners have one week to contact me to claim their prize. I will add each winner in-game and attempt to get in contact with them when possible.

Edit 6/30/14: I have rerolled those who have not claimed their prize yet. The following names have lost their Bond reward as I have not been able to get in contact with them after two weeks. I will no longer try to contact them, but if they do get in contact with me, they are still elligible for 1m rsgp.

If you haven't already, take a look at the Design Choices post.
As the forums near completion (this is a way bigger project then I originally expected :P), I'm starting to work out the initial list of Categories and Subforums that will be available upon launch. It is very easy to add more, so don't take this as a final list, and if something comes up later down the line, it can always be added.
So far I have the following list
- Bug Reports
- Quest Help
- Quest & Lore Discussion
- Tech Help
- Forum Games
I would love to see what you guys think of this current list, and if you have anything to add or change, please let me know in the comments below!
No, this isn't a post about wood, this is a post about drop logs!
With todays update comes a much requested feature: Logs. These aren't just Drop Logs, but you can also log your entire bank with it! Logs are a great way to keep track of your drops, character value, or anything between. They are only available to users.
To create a log, simply head over to the User Control Panel to the "My Logs" tab. From there you can input everything you want to to create a log.
There are four types of logs:
- Bank Tab
- Kill Log
- Trip Log
- Cumulative Tab (creates a Bank Tab that includes data from multiple logs)
To add a drop, simply click the green pencil button in the top right above the nav bar. You can do this from any page, although doing it from a log will automatically select that log if it is your log, which can make things like Kill Logging a bit easier.
For a bank tab, you'll only be asked for the item and number of items. Keep in mind that this is TOTAL items. Typing in "###" will set the amount of that item to that number. If you want to add or subtract from the current amount, type in "+###" or "-###" respectively.
For Kill/Trip Logs, adding to the log is a little more complicated. There are two text boxes on the left side, one for the item, one for the amount. This only supports the "###" format, as it only counts for the current kill/trip. Once you have this data in the boxes, click the add to list button, and you'll see the item added to the list on the right side. If you select an item on the right, you can edit the item by changing the value in the text boxes and clicking add to list again. If you want to remove it. Simply click remove from list. When finished, simply click "Add to log".
Either one of these would work for logging Clue Scrolls.
A Cumulative Tab allows you to select one or more logs of the other types and create a Bank Tab log that automatically includes all drops in the other tabs. An example of a use for this is if you have a Kill tab for all the different GWD bosses. You could create a Cumulative Tab including all of these and it would automatically update as you added to those tabs.
To view all the logs that have been created, simply hover over the "Tools" item in the navbar, and click Logs to go to the log page.
I am always open to suggestions, criticism, etc... If you have anything you'd like to see added, changed, or removed, let me know in the comments below!
