    Greetings Tenacious!

    Here are the patch notes for our new website and website experience. A couple of the items noted in the patch notes are in progress, but we didn't want to keep the site down for any longer while we get everything integrated. New and existing members are now able to link their Steam accounts and their website accounts and log in using their Steam information. The same functionality will be available for Discord by December 3rd.

    We hope you enjoy your new browsing experience!

    Default post_color is currently in progress. For now, if you pefer to post in color, you'll have to hightlight the text and use the editor above to change font colors.

    User selected automated color should be implemented within a week

    Completed over the last 2 months:
    - Fixed 'Chat' page to appropriately read 'Discord'
    - Fixed broken images in trophy system so that new trophies can be added
    - Fixed Invite link to Discord on splash page
    - Removed inactive 'Store' link
    - Removed the ability to register thru Steam and Discord accounts
    - Removed the ability to log in via Steam or Discord accounts
    - Removed the ability to link your steam account (it is not currently working and the app is no longer supported, would like to find a new one at some point)
    - Removed a steam banner that started showing up in our forum posts probably because of something else I messed with
    - Removed the banner at the bottom per request for better navigation on mobile and desktop
    - Removed a broken link in profiles for Poll manager
    - Consolidated some forum sections and reorganized the forums to put our official and active chapters front and center
    - Turned special forum banners (that were not community titles) into trophies to clean everything up
    - Revamped the color scheme for banners to match our theme and our rank structure
    - Disabled trophy points for now
    - Removed the calendar as it was hardly ever used
    - Removed the Streaming section for the same reason and also because it was throwing out a lot of errors on a daily basis clogging up the error log. Community officers are currently discussing a different way to feature our Tenacious streamers
    - Updated emojis
    - Updated FAQ (Still a work in progress)
    - Removed all other skin choices other than 'Default' and 'Plain' ... Plain is not 100% supported and will not have all the functions of the default skin. The plain skin is up there for people who browse our forums at work and feel more comfortable with a light colored skin that blends in with their other programs
    - Added Honorary titles per the rank structure
    - Redid the way auto upgrades work on people's accounts to better suit our needs​

    Still to do:
    - Remove splash page so that tenaciousgamers.com goes directly to the forums until we can get in there and update it
    - Find a steam app that works (not high priority)
    - Fix text option buttons near the shoutbox
    - Fix 'Watch Threads' function working sporadically
    - Completely update the FAQ
    - Resize all banner photos so they are the same​
