Welcome to BLUMAN.net! This is still a work in progress but definitely a step up from the last version which was far from dynamic. I've decided to follow a generic layout that resembles Bootstrap, without using Bootstrap or any other content delivery network. The page's various layouts all depend on the device you're using, screen width and occasionally the visible theme will change automatically according to the time of day or during a particular season/event in the year.
I've been roped into graphics and development for as long as I can remember. Starting out with creating custom Bebo skins in MS Paint and personalising Piczo pages, I stumbled across code development when I was still in primary school playing various games. I knew how to properly configure forums and create basic pages when I was around 10 years old or younger, however as I got older I slowed down with it.

All the content and graphics you can see here and elsewhere are created solely by me, with the exception of a few obvious things (avatars and other stock images), which have been sourced from Google. Each page expands and collapses accordingly and I've added thumbnails to most of the projects I could fish out or still have lingering around. Each section (projects, scripts, graphics) utilises scripts which populates them with the respective content. Every element (expanding divs, titles, status, text, links, images etc) are built automatically on every page load.
Sometime in mid-2013 a very trusted administrator removed mine, Loco's and Shields' powers and literally performed a coup d'etat on the community. To this day, we're not sure who was really helping them or why but I do know one thing - the server didn't last more than two months.
29/01/19: Paragon as a project has been put on hold. This is due to continued disputes between the server managers and the RageMP developers, of which Paragon is part of. The project is not likely to resurface.
30/01/19: The Medieval Roleplay project has been placed on hold by it's developers. This is due to the developers working on another server under the same band (Tavern Gaming). The developers have decided to focus more on Wild West Roleplay (link to forums) and once that is released and stable, they will be returning to Medieval RP.
Everything will be built up from the ground and will be the first time I properly work on an advanced user system which will, in turn, include staff ranks and cool features such as personal banners and images when commenting or interacting with other users.
09/11/18: I have placed the project on hold due to having other commitments. Due to being in the foundation stages, I thought it would be better to focus on other things. I have no idea when this will return to development status.
08/04/19: I have retired this project in favour of a re-imagined version, 'no more overtime'.
The UCP is still under private development.
22/01/2019: The UCP has been placed on hold. This is due to the community owners debating the future of the server. Any issues concerning the server are out of my hands and the project will not continue unless a decision has been made.
11/02/2019: The project was confirmed to be scrapped. I have since been approached by another community who have asked to use the UCP that would otherwise be binned.
This script is utilised through different parts of the site aswell, such as the 'projects' area - where each page is iterated through and pulls: a description (sourced from an external file), a logo (from the logos directory) and preview pics (from the previews directory).
