I figured I'd update everyone on some changes done to a few areas in an effort to improve the quality of the community.
As you can see, I've made a few changes to the website. I decided to keep the same base style with just a slight color change. I recreated the side bar that we used to have. It only went away to begin with because the mod I used no longer supported it appearing on every page. I had to create it myself which was a bit of a struggle. It has been almost a year since I've done this stuff so I'm slowly jogging my memory. Now we can shoutbox roll any page ! Certain functions that haven't worked in that time such as the search and viewing of your/other user's posts now works again. If you are searching for a particular post you made and can't find it, it means it was either deleted or moved into a forum you don't have access to. RSS feeds work again, just click on the little icon that is on the forum you wish to see. Nothing is final so expect to see more changes made to the site over the next few weeks.
I've added a style that will auto-detect when the site is being viewed by a mobile device. If you wish to switch from one to the other, there is a button at the bottom that says "Switch to full style" or "Switch to mobile style". It of course has some limitations compared to the full site.
I've added a reporting plugin to allow players to report anyone causing trouble on the servers. The reports will currently go right to a private forum for members to review and act upon. I encourage players to report anybody for breaking the rules, including members.
To report someone in game, simply type !report. You will be presented with a couple menus to help you make a submission. If none of the menu choices accurately describes the offense, you can type !report name "custom reason" quotes are required. If you wish to report someone who is no longer on the server, please send me a private message for the time being. Members may reach out to you seeking more information about a report. This is still in beta so there will likely be changes made to the plugin and process in the coming weeks. Abuse of the reporting system may result in punishments up to the permanent ban level.
The sourcebans site now has a page for communication (gag, mute, silence) blocks. I've also re-added a ban appeal forum. In this forum, a player can contest any ban they may have received. Please follow the format of this post when appealing.
I've set up an IRC channel at #untamedgaming on gamesurge. It has been like 10 full years since I've run a channel so it will take a good while to get it set up the way I want. I will try to hang out or idle in there whenever I'm around.
I think that is about it. As I said, there are more things to come. Please report any bugs, broken features, or other issues you may find here on this thread.
