New Feature
November 2008 Code Released
November 2008 Code Release

Ive been working on this since roughly June 2008. We haven't had an upgrade since 2005 and it was well overdue. I hope you all enjoy the new look and all the great new features that have been added in this release. This is the largest code release in history. Most past updates were incremental or small scale.

You will either love it or hate it. Hopefully you will love it.

      • Activity %
    • Profile displays the spread of experience points across several categories that make up your total experience points.

Please note, Subtags will need to be readded to every person who had one. The Admins will need to go through their departments and get these taken care of. They will display on the right top corner as you see on my post.
