Hey everyone,

This is my first post! I'd like to thank each and everyone for the extremely warm messages, and I'm looking forward to the bright future which is ahead for SquishyCraft. Today, I'd like to start off my first announcement with a few forum updates.

Just to ensure everything is in tip-top condition, we will slowly be rolling out QoL ("Quality of Life") updates to the server. Today, we processed our first batch of these changes, by treating our forums with some juicy new features. I'd like to highlight some of these below.

New Homepage
Our homepage has been updated with a "CMS" type layout. Now, when you browse to squishycraft.com, you will be presented with all the latest news articles from our Announcements category. This is perfect for staying up-to-date with the latest!

Updated Categories
We have made an extensive amount of changes to the forum categories, including the following changes:
  • All main and sub-categories have now been renamed to better represent what they entail
  • An "Archive" subforum has been added to all forums listed under Support & Applications
  • The "Staff Reports" section has been removed in favour of staying professional
  • The "Media", "Guides" and "Offtopic" categories have been added
Support Forums Sweep
With new management taking over, we have decided to take a fresh new look at any server bugs, server suggestions and staff applications. Therefore, all 3 of these forums have been sweeped (meaning every unanswered post has been locked, closed and added to the archive). This might be frustrating to some, however this change will really help us to take good care of the server going forward. We ask that you re-submit any bugs and suggestions that were unanswered so we can address these immediately. Staff Applications will remain closed for the time being.

New Prefixes
In order to better structure the threads that are listed in each individual forum, we have introduced new prefixes. This should make it easier to find exactly what you are looking for. For example, closed player reports will now have a "Closed" tag, so you can better identify them. And the new "Welcome" threads have a "Read First" tag attached to them, so new forum members can read up on some essential forum information.

Ratings Update
The "Disagree", "Dislike" and "Optimistic" ratings have been removed, as these are unnecessary ways of spreading negativity on the forums. All previously given out ratings are no longer visible on posts and player's profiles.

Shoutbox
A shoutbox has been added to the main forum list. This is an easy way to communicate with other server players who are online on the forums. Please note that all messages posted in the shoutbox are bound to our server rules, just like anything else posted on our forums.

Double Posts
Placing two posts right after each other on the same forum, will now cause these two posts to merge into each other. This has the advantage of countering spam, and also makes it easier to edit your post - as you can now just post another reply instead of putting in the extra hassle of editing your post.

Similar Threads
Posting a new forum thread will now automatically show you suggestions based on the input you give in the "Thread Title" field. This makes it easy to look for a thread that might have already answered the question that you were needing help with.

Along with this, we have made dozens of other behind-the-scenes changes to ensure the quality of our forums stay at the highest standards, and we really hope that you will enjoy these updates!

For now, I'm signing off. We'll be back with more exciting information soon!

Thanks,
Jesse

Hey, did anyone else find a microphone in their dog? Probably the CIA's doing, or the Illuminati. Anyways long live Alex Jones.
