    June 11th
    • Still working on the layout thing.
    • Cleaned up a bunch of files and removed some things from the database that were just clutter.
    • Character status fixed in the create character page.
    June 15th, 2005
    • Removed a mod regarding permissions
    • Fixed (hopefully) all forums reply/start/view permissions via MySQL. For some reason the subforums don't "save" permissions when I edit them. :(
    • Yes, still working on the new layout. Chaos.
    • June something or other
    • Rewrote a lot of the character admin panel. Added an archives view to see how many characters get accepted each month.
    June 26th
    • A lot on the admin panel has been revamped
    • Staff activity page made
    • Skeleton of the new layout made. Navigation isn't cross-browser compatible though, so that needs to be worked on.
    June 29-30th
    • Staff revamped
    • Rewrote, deleted, and recoded a bunch of staff related pages.
    • Finally got a special more "dynamic" include wrapper to parse correctly without losing or nulling my variables. This = even cooler new layout. ^^
    July 3-4
    • After much tweaking, most of the new layout has been uploaded. I actually had to gut parts of the forum in order to make it work. Eek.
    • Lots, and lots of info pages edited. I probably missed a few... the most important ones have been converted though.
    July 6th
    • Added a staff menu box to the sidebar. What links show up depend on what staff group you're in.
    • Fixed admin settings to reflect the new usergroups in the chat room.
    • Does anyone even read this thing anymore?
    • Added some forum images. I still don't like some of them.
    • Edited a few more pages to use the new layout includes.
    • Nosed around at some of our affiliated sites. I'm thinking about dropping some of them.
    July 8-9th
    • Trimmed affiliates page.
    • Fixed the IE-only CSS bug.
    • Added deviantArt member page.
    • Updated Downloads page with links to VonCreme's songs, and the Ramathian font thus far.
    • Created BBCode for quick linking character profiles. I still need to figure out how to get it to unconvert when a person is editing a post though. Right now it keeps confusing itself with the url BBCode tag.
    • Need a nap or something now... and I've become engrossed with S. King's novel "The Stand" again. Gonna scribble up some more graphic things later tonight.
    July 12
    • Colouration on persona pages fixed
    July 15th
    • Added charmax/chartotal to member edit page in AdminCP, as well as a few other custom fields that weren't previously there.
    • Still working on gunk. Dude, I really like this Redpyre person's characters.
    July 23rd 2005
    • Crap.. I forgot about this post again. I've been doing a bunch of little things lately.
    • New species database almost finished; flora/fauna still undergoing some tweaking. I need to go through and re-categorize all of the current submissions.. so that will probably take a while. ew.
    • Fixed a bug that was screwing up character's histories and the "other" field.
    • Wrote up some code so that admins can change character's names.
    • Re-coded a contact us form thingy that I think I'll put up later today.
    • There were some other things... but I can't remember them all. I'ma go draw now. GOODnight.
    July 24th
    • Wrote up an admin only species editing code.
    • Made it so that we can make some species restricted (eg. Aquabats & Ghosts for now)
    • Fixed some links.
    • Started working on the image part of the species database.
    • Flora/fauna stuff still being worked on.
    July 25-26th
    • Oooh... Jodie might be getting a laptop.
    • Anyway. Added the ability to include images in the species database. So it is completed. Woo. Pretty much.
    • Wrote up some code to easily transfer characters (that also auto-magically increases and decreases both users' character counts! Yay!)
    July 30th
    • Bwok, bwok. Jodie got a laptop. Ral files have finally all been transferred over, so now she's back to writing the flora/fauna database. She thinks that she's going to rewrite the entire thing from scratch because it's so gosh darn messy. So much tangle of code. I must have been on crack while writing it the first time... or maybe just really inexperienced. Yeah...
    • Added a thing to allow multi-deletion of posts. Quicker to clean up the custom title thread and whatnot now.
    August 2nd
    • Added some notices to the top of the page to help out Validating, Pending Members, and Lurkers.
    • Still working on the flora/fauna stuff.
    • Still not happy with the current layout. :[ Too bland. It needs some spicy meatballs. Mm, spicy meatballs. I like swedish meatballs better though, but I think they'd look queer on a web site.
    August 6-7
    • Added a few things to the sidebar
    • Created a trades page.
    • Linked up the Contact Us page, many pages and information still need to be updated in order to reflect that.

    • Creating a new table for the flora/fauna biomes.
    • Fixed anonymous users being shown on sidebar online list
    August 13-14, 2005
    • Turned quick reply on all of the forums

    • Created new Advisor member group
    • Added last activity date to memberlist
    • Added new BBCode for image alignment [imgright] & [imgleft]
    • Added BBCode for character profile linking, but it doesn't "un-parse" correctly yet because of the URL BBCode. Bummer.
    August 23-27
    • Fixed some permission errors regarding the Suggestion Box & Advisors
    • Added new emoticon things
    August 28-29
    • New layout.
    September 25-26th
    • Rewrote About Us page
    • Rewrote Character Registry & Search Results pages (still need to fix the search engine and make it faster)
    • CSS profile editing is working, but I'm still checking for bugs. It'd be nice to write a basic tutorial on it too before I release it.
    • Recoded some CSS and things on the Index page.
    • ..nng. oh how I've missed being able to edit things.
    • Rewrote character trades page. Fixed the graphics on there.
