The staff team will be using this thread to keep note of minor changes we make the community.

Any significant changes like the points system or new forums will always have dedicated discussions, and we'll use this for anything smaller like minor styling changes or tweaks to guidelines.

They will just be brief note-like entries, a bit like patch notes you get with software updates. Posts will look something like this:

Note: these are just examples
25/08/19 | Avatar thumbnail size changed from 50x50px to 75x75px
28/08/19 | Forum headings changed to remove underlining

We don't usually tell you guys about these things because they don't warrant their own announcement, but this gives us a nice way to keep you posted on changes of any importance and any size.

The thread will remain closed because the things here shouldn't require written feedback and we won't have time to have big conversations about them, but feel free to react and if you do want to ping us some written feedback you're welcome to PM us. :)

    28/08/19 | Profile fields 'roles', 'visits' and 'points' removed. 'Roles' wasn't used, 'visits' could have the potential to cause stigma or paranoia and isn't useful information, and 'points' wasn't used for anything and could be mistaken for guideline-related points.
