    • Item count support for navigation tabs
    • Additional admin-only links on the front-end profile page
    Additionally,
    • Female default avatar modified
    • Spam shield modified, no more captcha. The sophisticated, muti-layered LWlol spam shield has been an unsung hero of the new website. It has prevented all bot registrations, and will remain uncrackable. So far we've had over 300 recorded attempted registrations from bots
    • Text editor improved with a word count tracker
    • Reply changed to Quote

    • I'm in the process of supporting super retina resolutions by switching as many images as possible to .svg. The kill stamp on the Rank & File is implemented now.
    • Switching to .svg will decrease the home page size while increasing quality. Old shitty browsers will not display .svg but that won't be a problem with our informed demographic!

    • Excited to say that the Home and Rank & File page backgrounds more closely resemble the design mockups now.

    • The Cactar now auto saves whatever you are typing into the response box. If your browser crashes or you accidently close the page, it should remember whatever you input should you return to that specific page. It auto saves as you type so it will be as you last left the body of text before the crash.
    • Member Card popup colors polished
    2/24/13

    • Default avatars have been updated. There are three different versions, one for male, another for female and one for unknown.
    • I will stop the suffering. I just did something I wasn't planning on doing for various reasons. Header logo updated. Just don't get comfortable with the header navigation as it will go away and match the home and rank & file pages eventually.
    • Member Card popup colors updated
    2/22/13

    1/22/13
