Hello,
I’m curious if something had changed in the rolling algorithms recently (in the last few months maybe)? The rolling seems to became more chaotic and less resembling normal distribution. We are playing WoD where you roll several dice and get “successes”, and it may be just me, but now the weird “minimaxed” rolling sequences like 9 9 9 2 1 9 8 7 or 5, 2, 8, 4, 1, 1, 3, 3, 3, 7 seem to appear way too often. I ran a few tests on the Rolz main page, and it does appear to be an issue, and not just a stroke of (bad) luck. | reply

I’m using a iPhone 6s+ to access Rolz. I can’t get the blogs for the game I’m in and I can’t post new threads in the forum. Please help me | reply

I'm also using an iPhone and I don't have any issues. While Rolz isn't exactly designed for mobile, it should work. You didn't give me a lot to go on either. I'll need a description of what problems you are actually experiencing. | reply

when you add modifiers i.e. 1d20+5 the mod is set as equal to zero so the roll comes out as wrong. | reply

Heya,

I see you have a equal to and greater formula. Is there something like a equal to and under?

For example, in a quest that I follow, it has a Talent Number and in order to count cultivation successes, it's every roll that's equal to your talent no. and lower for successes. So if you talent number is, say, 6, 1-6 = successes, but 7-10 = failures. | reply

I have read the law, the citizen brief made available to us. Not the full document introduced to the Union (yet.)

First and foremost; this website is not a business. It would be considered a private, non commercial website, and these laws target companies. (Registered and all, operating in the EU or having trade deals in place legitimizing working in the EU and of course, being subject to EU laws whilst doing so.) Because you are not a "Service provider." in the term of a contract (Tit for Tat) But rather a free to use tool online using donations i do not think you are subject to the penalties or obligations.

Secondly in regards to liability, I think you lawyers was commenting on: (Art. 33-34 of the Regulation)

"If your data is lost or stolen, and if this data breach could harm you, the
company causing the data breach will have to inform you (and the relevant data
protection supervisory authority) without undue delay. If the company doesn’t do
this, it can be fined. Recent attacks, such as WannaCry, Meltdown and Spectre, or
the Uber case show how important this new right is."

That is to say if Damages WERE suffered, proven by court, and willful ignorance or attempts to cover up the breach, proven in court sanctions will be filed. But, because you are not a for-profit anything. But i also do not think your site (as far as i can see) stores any information that could "Hurt" a person. People do not have secrets hidden here, banking information, credit cards? Home adresses?

And (Art. 12-14 of the Regulation)

A right to receive clear and understandable information
about who is processing your data, what data they are processing and why they are
processing it.

I do not reckon you store much information, but you will need to have one of those anoying eula's or pop up saying. "We have cookies, store your ip for future visits and do not do anything with th is information, the Eu has asked me to be annoying so click on the TRIANGLE, not the X to say "Ok man. what ever let me roll dice."


It is my opinion that you will be fine, but asking lawyers who understands EU laws and your specific obligation is a good step to ensure you manage your risks.

I have been using your site recently and hope to continue to use the work of your great efforts in the comming years.

Stay calm, be good, and be cool man.

Charles, thanks for taking the time to post some advice about this. While I am personally reasonably sure that Rolz is not in violation of the spirit of the data protection laws, my personal risk due to operating the site has undoubtedly increased now. I have taken some steps to hopefully limit the damage that can be done to Rolz.

I do not believe, however, there is sufficient grounds to distinguish legally between a company and an individual providing a service, even if that service is not for profit. As an EU citizen, I'm personally responsible for any and all liabilities that arise out of Rolz. It is my understanding that a European court will not treat hobbyists differently from corporations. Even assuming that I'd win in the end, the mere act of defending myself against a lawyer specializing in for-profit complaints is financially precarious for me.

As I posted elsewhere, I have taken some minimal steps to hopefully limit my personal exposure. Blanket geoblocking the EU isn't going to happen anymore, however, I will be blocking access from Germany, because that is where most of the danger is coming from. | reply

Hey dude, I don't really understand what you're saying with your latest message, but nothing in any EU legislation would stop EU residents from accessing this site, their is no legal issue.

All the best | reply

Apr 19th 13:21
Udo

Max, I'm not sure if Rolz exposes me to liability, and the lawyer I talked to (who was admittedly not very good) said that the site really needs to be run by a limited liability company, one that is preferably not registered in the EU. I'm definitely getting a second opinion on this... | reply

When I enter my credentials in Chrome, and try to log in, it gives me an error page. ("This page is not working.")

Then, if I hit "Refresh," it gives me the blank login screen again.

Then, if I hit "Dice Room" it acts normal, and goes to my dashboard.

This does NOT occur if I login with Microsoft Explorer. (The old one, Version 11.0.9600.18837)

So apparently, ROLZ doesn't work correctly with Chrome. Will there be a fix for this? I've been putting up with this for quite some time (a few months) and although I know how to bypass the error, it is inconvenient to be forced to do so.

Thanks! | reply

Hi there,

i tried to use the api, however i notice that you haven't set an Acces Controll header, meaning that the only viable option to use it is jsonp, even though multiple formats are supported. Is it possible to set the access-controll header?

Sincerely,

I'm playing shadowrun 5e and I wanted to see if I could use this to do some of the rolling but I'm having trouble getting it to work. I'm getting errors using (count=1 *d6e5). What I'm trying to do is get the system to tell me how many of * d6s are 5 or 6s thus sucesses and how many 1s were rolled so I can see if half or more were ones and thus this roll is a glitch. Eventually I'll also want to have a second one where all 6s are also rolled again for edge tests but one step at a time. | reply

is there a way to roll a large bulk of dice all at once? for example:

I want to roll 10d30 100 times instead of clicking roll 100 times

then I want to "count/or sum up" how many times I rolled 300(all 10 dice on 30) etc? | reply

Hi!

If I were to use Rolz for a PbP game, would our room persist so that we could use it as a neutral base for our rolls? In other words, if a character were to roll initiative, action, effect, could I log into the room two days later to see the results? | reply

I'm posting this to agree with Eli below me--not being able to rename myself "GM", or risking any kind of name being password-locked is kind of ridiculous. I love the chat interface and room wiki functions, but am torn between Rolz and Roll20/something else for literally only this reason.

Reducing restrictions to a room-by-room basis (so you can't have 2 people named GM, for example) would make Rolz my first choice for chatroom-based RPing. | reply

Oct 24th 17:49
Vedexent

Just a heads up that - at least in the lobby - the embedded die roll syntax ( e.g. "This is my D20 roll: [d20]" ) seems to be broken.

Trying to use this syntax causes the system to return no text at all: no speech, no die roll - it just appears that the person has said a blank line. | reply

Hello!

I use this site rather frequently for tabletop games, and while I enjoy the notion of having password protected nicknames, it is growing increasing frustrating to explain to my game masters why my name is not my characters as those names seem to just ever increasingly become password protected. It makes our sessions confusing for identifying who exactly is rolling,

So while the idea is nice, it is also, in my opinion, becoming a a nuisance to try and give yourself a nick for your in game character and the message of password protected keeps popping up. | reply

Hi!
It's a great work, thank you!
Can you create such a success-based dice code, in which we can see how many dice rolled equal to or LOWER than some number? (Maybe with type "U')
Thank you! | reply

I may be missing something, but running the count command seems to display the sum of dice rather than the count of the results specified.

ex. #count=1 10d6 displays the following:
Amras rolls count=1 10d6 = 33 (3 +6 +4 +4 +1 +4 +4 +1 +2 +4) | reply

Hi, for a couple of weeks now the dice rolls have been intermittently lagging for a while, and the whole left side log disappears/crashes multiple times during our two-hour sessions. Several minutes later it will reappear, only to crash again ten minutes or so later. This happened this evening, 7/20/17, between 9:30-11:30, as well as 7/17 and the previous weeks 7/13 and 7/10 (all between 9:30-11:30). I'm hoping this can be fixed, as the two different groups who I play with on Mon and Wed nights enjoy rolz but the situation is such that we may turn to another roller. | reply
