Well, we're running a little behind schedule from where we wanted to be at this time of the year, but not to worry! We have a ton of fun stuff to roll out for you all this month, and we're even more excited about what's to come.
Before we get to the good stuff, a few things of note:
- October Donor Rewards were slightly delayed on account of this week getting ahead of us a bit, but we plan on getting these sent out within the next 48 hours.
- Speaking of donations, we are halfway to meeting our goal for this month with just two weeks left to go! Remember that this month there is an extra reward if our goal is met. Visit the donate page to learn more.
- Please, please, please include the list of characters participating in each thread when requesting an archival! It not only helps us get through archive requests faster, but also assures that you will receive all of the appropriate rewards. As well, when listing character names, please give the whole account name. We have, for example, quite a few characters with the same first name!
- Due to some technical difficulties we are still working on addressing how Achievements will be handled, but we hope to have this figured out within the next couple of weeks and with it we will resume handing out rewards for Challenges and Lessons.
- We will begin bringing on new Community Ambassadors this week! A separate announcement will be made once they have joined us. :)
Updates are listed from the top of the forum down to the bottom, in no particular order of importance!
