    All announcements will be posted here for your reading pleasure.

    July 14, 2011
    • Thanks to your donations, XenForo has been installed! Premium forum software for the most premium of hard gay chats. Did you know we have trophies?
    • Unfortunately, e-mail based validation is not working, so, we'll have to manually approve user registrations. Bug us on IRC.
    • Thanks Zaiger and DocEvil for setting up our the categories and forums.
    • A bunch of cache optimizations have been added, page load time should decrease by 70-80%, as static content is now being properly cached by your browser.
    • Hey, look, a nice favicon.ico!
    • Welcome our new Admins: DocEvil, Edgeworth E. Euler, Garrett, joepie91 and Zaiger!
    • We've got a new Moderator as well: Meepsheep!
    July 15, 2011
    • DocEvil has added a new board, SMYD, check out the welcome post.
    • It's probably worth mentioning that there's a hidden board lurking around, you should try and find it.
    • We've installed two new fun modules, XenStaff and [bd] Medal System.
      • DocEvil will be fixing the Medal System, his thread here.
    • We've reached 100 users and 1,200 posts! Good job on getting this community started!
    • DocEvil has applied a bunch of style changes to his board SMYD, check it out!
    • We've got some new Moderators: Beefcake and Willidarski!
    • Zaiger's fixing up the general section as well! We've got a new logo!
    • IMPORTANT!!! Our host has kicked encyclopediadramatica.ch off, fortunately all of our data is safe, as well as our forums (hence why you're reading this). I've moved the hosting of the forums, but we need donations badly for a new host for encyclopediadramatica. #saveED!
    • A new Moderator has been added to SMYD, hail, Xero.
    July 18, 2011
    • It's been a long weekend, and we've had tons of fun with the donation drive. We have a bunch of awesome news that we're planning to release when all the Bureaucrats are awake, and all our decisions are finalized!
    • 238 users and over 4,000 posts! Fuck yeah!
    July 22, 2011
    • It's been a freaking long week. Thankfully, we've successfully moved the entire wiki and forums over to a new host!
    • We're at 518 users and over 14,000 posts too! Fuck yeah, forums!
    • I've fixed a lot of issues with requests for static content stalling, and causing pages to take forever to load. You should see these fixes immanently, but if you don't, clear your cache.
    July 23, 2011
    • More cache optimizations. Page will load EVEN FASTER now.
    • The clock should have caught up, you can post now!
    • I installed APC. Things should be getting even faster!
    • Imagemagick was installed on the wiki, I think this means that thumbnailing animated gifs should work now.
    • FramedVideo has been installed! Happy embedding shit on the wiki!
    • E-Mail based validation works now! Be sure to register using a valid e-mail. If you're apprehensive about supplying your real e-mail address (you lose the ability to watch threads, e-mail notifications.. etc) you can always register using a temporary email here.
    • I've unlocked this thread to allow for chatter about the changes, post your suggestions, improvements, or bitch about the changes here.
    • Fixed an issue with Special:Random not being random at all.
    Jul7 27, 2011
    • Due to inactivity, resignation from the wiki, and general lack of interest in forums other than SMYD, DocEvil has been removed from the Administrator staff.
    • Due to abuse, moderators can no longer edit or perma delete posts, at least until we can find/create an XenForo addon that allows us to roll back edits.

    August 1, 2011
    • Speed issues are fixed! Webpages should be loading at their normal FREAKING FAST speed again! Sorry for the slowness guys <3
    • Our server has been upgraded, we've now got more computing power than we know what to do with!
    • Our donations are being held till October 15, 2011.
    August 5, 2011
    August 6, 2011
    • We added a bunch of new stuff! Smileys, Medals, Most popular items, IRC, Twitter, icons, CSS and HTML template hacks and adjustments and a lot more.
    August 17, 2011
    August 22, 2011
    • Optimized the site's CSS for mobile viewing and tablets. Devices with a 480px and below resolution will have a much more pleasant experience using the site.
    • I think we finally got all the spots where text was blending into the background. If you come across any more instances of this please alert zaiger so it can be fixed.
    • It is now a lot harder to get the Dramacrat title, but a lot easier to get EDF hero.
    August 23, 2011
    • Everyone welcome the last new mod for a long time, Atomic_Joe.
    September 3, 2011
    • New Main Page, which has all kinds of interchangeable modules so I can easily change content. Also the Main Page feeds from the News Forum so post some lulzy shit, k?
    • Also there is a new Media library, which will be visible shortly. There will be a tab at the top of the page that says Media, once there it is pretty self explanatory how to use it.
    • I added a sweet minecraft theme to the gaming forum.
    • Added the Party Forum for when we feel like partying.
    And there is more to come like a new bbcode manager so we can have spoiler tags and shit and maybe some HTML for users of trust and statute. You guys are going to see some cool shit coming up.

    We need like, a banner or logo or something. I'm gonna scale this down a little bit and add it to the top right somewhere I think. Maybe rotate it so it matches the favicon.
