    • Credits drop down now works.
    • This drop down provides access to the long touted feature to donate to our website. It took this long because I wanted an interesting, and fun way to support the site, rather than a mundane Paypal transaction.
    • LWlol.com credits are tied to the donation system at an exchange rate of $1 USD to §100 credits. As you all know, LWlol.com Credits are also tied to the Cactar Stock Exchange. As with the real stock market, participating in the CSE can be risky, which is a compelling draw. Giving value to credits helps to create a more interesting decision when you do decide to play the CSE. Without risk, gameplay becomes less interesting, especially with the Stock Market.
    • A Stock Market was chosen to complement LWlol.com because it doesn't need constant attention, but provides fresh content every time casual users visit, and for more hardcore users, it provides deep strategic thinking.
    • Donations have made the website what it is today, an unrivaled guild platform. However we have continuous costs that must be paid to keep this show running. Your support is appreciated and will be awarded with various accolades, Donor, Patron or Founder. These ranks are detailed below:
      • Donor This special rank is given to users who donate any amount under $50.00 USD
      • Patron This special rank is given to users who donate an amount between $50.00 and $99.99 USD. Patrons may parse HTML in The Cactar
      • Founder This prestige rank is given to users who donate $100 USD or over. In addition to the previous donor tier, Founders may also post in the ShoutBox from anywhere the Mini Dashboard appears on LWlol.com, in addition to early access to any development that occurs on the site.
    • Previous donations will receive an appropriative sum of credits

    Fixed issue where founders without the appropriate access ranks were unable to use the ShoutBox.
    Founders may now access all attractions without needing an access rank

    Another feature originally scheduled for Cactar 2.0 is now live:
    • Duplicate forum title check - As you create a title for new posts, The Cactar will show threads with similar titles via a dropdown

    • Donations made to the site in the past have had their appropriate amount of credits credited to their account. Please see Credit statistics in the Credits drop down to see who! Now is a great time to start investing!

    Thank you for beta testing ShoutBox, here are the changes that have been made in response to the beta test. These changes have been made in order to differentiate ShoutBox from Cactar Chat in addition to decreasing bandwidth usage.
    • ShoutBox massively nerfed
      • Only the 8 newest messages are displayed now, down from 20
      • Post delay increased to 10 seconds from 1 second
      • ShoutBox message refresh rate increased to 20 seconds from 1 second
      • Unfocused refresh time increased to 3 minutes from 15 seconds
      • Unfocused on another tab refresh rate once every 1000 seconds, up from default

    • Rank & File updated. Amazing
    • New LWlol.com title introduced: Emeritus! Emeritus is an honorary title bestowed only to 'permanent' GM's who have stepped down or are on sabbatical. Only Emeritus on sabbatical will be listed in Rank & File.

    The drop-down notice still says multi-quote (which is a more intuitive name imo).

    I updated it. I don't like the label multi-quote for multiple reasons

    You're hurting my brain by making multiples of one spec alphabetical except for Chia and Jak.
