    Hello Everyone!
    I hope you have all are having a great summer break. I would like to start this off by thanking those who purchased last months exclusive name color, especially King Drakius for being the first person to.kingpep

    Small Changes/Fixes
    • Obsidian requirements have been lowered.
    • Reputation requirements have been lowered.
    • There can now be six sticky thread per section.
    • The Rainbow name color promotion has expired.
    Obsidian and Reputation Requirements
    The requirements for Obsidian have dramatically changed, in my eyes, the previous ones were on the high end. You must hit the following criteria in order to gain Obsidian rank (do keep in mind you are not able to get the upgrade if you have Diamond or Emerald).
    • At least 50 posts.
    • At least 25 trophy points.
    • Been registered for 30 days.
    • At most 15 warning points.
    • At least 25 positive ratings (not reputation).
    As always we will be keeping the reputation requirements completely private but I should mention they have also been lowered, you are no longer needed to have a certain amount of posts every month, instead once you hit certain criteria you will be able to leave reputation forever (you should be able to earn access fairly easily). Although if anyone is caught abusing the reputation system, you will lose access to it.

    Layout Changes
    You may have noticed that you are now required to scroll slightly further down the page to access the account section, which may be frustrating to get used to but we need to appreciate the fact this website is a forum, and we need to open up the discussion sections more. In order to do this, I simply moved the section further up the page so it's no longer neglected.

    There will be more changes to the layout of the website as we move forward but it's all being thought out before implementation.

    Staff Changes.
    Please welcome all of the new staff and be sure to congratulate them on the promotions.
    • Avery has been promoted to Manager (his role will now focus on managing the staff team).
    • bank has been promoted to Dispute Resolver.
    • Justin has been promoted to Chat-Moderator.
    • sqlty has been promoted to Chat-Moderator.

    Staff Applications
    We’re now opening staff applications for Chat Moderator on MCTrades! After welcoming Justin, sqlty and bank to our staff team we decided that allowing users to apply for the position would be a step in the right direction towards a better selection of members to moderate the forum.

    We have requirements in place to only allow certain members to apply. This criteria will remain private. You may re-apply 3-months after your denial date with a maximum of 3 attempts. We will try to give each applicant a response in a weeks’ time, please be patient and DO NOT ask us to check it. Avery will be reviewing the applications with the rest of the staff team to select the best candidates.

    If you think you would be a good staff member on MCTrades you may apply here.

    Animated Name Color
    Over the past few weeks, myself, Avery, and Ember have all been testing out a few animated name colors and starting today we have permanently listed the animated rainbow name color for sale for the price of $15. This will be the only ever animated color, which is the reason for the pricing.

    If you would like to purchase it, you can do so here.

    Sidebar Ad
    All of you regular ad users may have noticed that we only have five sidebar ads compared to our previous six. I did want to remove it not long after it was added, it was always a temporary solution, however, one slot was not being used I took advantage and have completely removed it. I do apologize to those who now have to wait longer for sed ad.

    Top Chatter
    Unfortunately I have been unable to give out the top chatter prize last month because almost all of the top chatters were purposely flooding the chat when the staff members were offline with the sole purpose of collecting the most posts. It's not acceptable, if we see anyone doing this again you will be permanently excluded from the top chatter event.

    Name Color
    The July name color has now been released and we hope you enjoy it. It can be viewed/purchased here.

    Sincerely,
    Callum
