    Hello Everyone!
    I hope everyone's staying safe during this pandemic and aren't getting too bored stuck inside. A quick little note to let everyone know the top chatter event was cancelled throughout June due to a variety of users flooding the chat to win the name colour.

    Brief Changes
    • The glitch that would previously log-out users who visited account sections has been fixed.
    • We have had a theme switchover to purple, it has been through a test period but I am beginning to like it, and we will likely see a permanent switch.
    • A few months ago I was dabbling with a credit add-on which I was working on behind the scenes, a decision was made to abandon it.
    • The request account section was removed in the Cape/Ranked/Semi-OG nodes.
    Staff Changes
    Moofie is no longer apart of the staff team. I have had a large number of messages inquire about filling the position but as of now, the staff team will be kept the same. Moofie was previously extremely busy with IRL things so the majority of reports and moderation were dealt with by the team we have now, so at this moment we do not need to expand it.

    For those who are interested, if a position opens up in the future we have an application section. You may only apply if you meet the requirements. Please do not ask, the requirements will not be posted publicly.

    AstroVPN CTF Event (Award for Attending)
    AstroVPN has reached out to the MCTrades Community in hopes of getting more attention to an upcoming event of theirs, AstroCTF 2020. AstroCTF is a "Capture The Flag" game, based around cryptography, cybersecurity, and StackOverflow! We've been hard at work getting this developed and expecting to have a more official release date in the next few weeks.

    A few things are for certain, this event will be happening yearly, there will be prizes, and this is going to be a lot of fun for people new & experienced in infotech. More importantly, the AstroVPN Team has setup a fundraiser for the Human Rights Campaign, all funds raised during this event will be directly deposited to GoFundMe.

    If you're interested in learning more about AstroCTF, join our community: https://ctf.astrovpn.co/discord
    For those who attend they will receive a medal, which can be seen in my profile with the anonymous face-mask.

    Charity Event
    This the month we will be doing a charity event, the details on this have not yet been decided. I am still having a look around to see if there are any that we have not donated to in the past and are in need of more support now due to the circumstances of the world. If you have any suggestions, feel free to drop me a message here.

    Sincerely,
    Callum

    I like the purple, but it's different from the green, so it will take some time!
