    Consistent updates just don't work for me clearly, but things have been changed and they're worth a mention.

    Website
    I've reorganized the forums a bit to make things easier to navigate. I've also made some previously hidden categories visible under the "Archive" section. There's no reason to post in them, but there's also no harm in reading through old posts.

    The town page is live again! You can view town stats online, including members, assistants, and town taxes. Each town can have a 500x300 custom image displayed on the site. All you need to do is post a 500x300 image in a thread about your town and tag ezeiger92 (me). If you don't provide an image, a random one is selected from a set I took from spawn.

    Related to this, the town page, dynmap, mcstats page, and chestshop transactions have all been linked together.
    • Town page links to dynmap, and all members link to their mcstats page
    • Mcstats links transaction info to chestshop and town affiliation to the town page
    • Dynmap links to the town page from the town pop-up (when you click on a town)

    Survival
    Control animal pens with Stables! Simply place a sign and put [stable] on the first line. You can then right click and scroll to change the stable size and minimum number of animals allowed. When the number of animals is at (or lower) than the minimum, animals in the region cannot be hurt!
    Stables are completely free, but no blocks (including the stable sign) are protected. If you want to be sure nobody breaks your stable, I recommend locking a diamond block to protect the region.

    I can't for the life of me think of anything else that's been changed, but I also know more has been changed. Post subject to being updated soon!

    That's why developers usually say "Minor bug fixes" xD

    Yeah, but if he tried to do that, someone would probably demand to know precisely which minor bugs were fixed.

    Would they really? Unless the something that was changed directly impacts mechanics/things they use, or they want to exploit the feature no one would notice and care to ask.

    + It's a simple thing to say in cases like this where there are so many minor changes that they can be forgotten easily. (If you don't have an organized place of all the changes but even that is hard to keep sometimes :D)

    But I was referring to features I may have forgotten.

    Which you then add into the next update post or wherever as if that happened at that time :D (once you remember of course)
    I am not killing you or whatever, I was just making a simple joke which now sparks an argument about you keeping a change log handy :D
