    As the site continues to grow we need to implement a better way of storing update information. I have come up with this final 'Site Update' thread containing a neat patch log type system for any updates we do to the site. This will not include any type of staff changes or any events we post as they are not specifically an update to the site, however, they will still get their own dedicated post.

    Each day that an update has been done will have an associated date spoiler attached listing each update and a bit of information behind it. This will allow you to track the progression of the staff team in its constant task to keep the forum clean and refreshing for all users.

    If you have any questions regarding a recent update please contact a member of higher staff rank they might be able to inform you why the changes were made.
