    Hello Everyone!
    I hope you have all settled back into school/work after your Christmas break and enjoyed the week long sale we had at the start of the month. I'd also like to thank everyone who purchased the January name color, especially Binaric for being the first to do so.

    Implementations/Fixes
    Due to everyones suggestions and bug reports I've been able to make a few changes around the website which include the following:
    • Removed the "Fulfilled" prefix in the marketing sections as there was already a more frequently used "Closed" prefix.
    • Removed the ability to use/make chat rooms due to them going un-used for a long period of time.
    • Removed the PUBG gaming sub-section due to it never receiving a post/thread in its life-span.
    • Added a "Programming" section in the "Miscellaneous Services" category with the sub-sections of Java, Python, C#, JavaScript, and PHP. You may view the section here.
    • Deleted 4 of the previous user groups (OG, Princess, Ghoul, and Solitude) due to rule violations.
    Groups
    As can be seen in our previous section, four of the previous groups were deleted and because of this we are going to be auctioning four brand new groups for a firm period of a week. The starting bid for each is $50.

    To bid for these groups you may send me a message and I will note your offers publically on this thread. On February 7th the group owners will be notified and if a payment is not made they will be re-auctioned for a few days.

    Group 1 - SOLD
    Group 2 - SOLD
    Group 3 - SOLD
    Group 4 - SOLD

    These groups allow you to create your own user banners, which can be seen here (as demonstrated by Avery's PewDiePie group), however, the background must either be a solid color or image, with text covering the front. The color may not match the staff banners.

    You may also choose your groups name color, as can be seen here, which can either be a solid color or a two colored gradient, also not allowed to match the staff colors (red/green).

    They also give you your own sub-section here, where you may allow users to apply or simply conversate.

    The rules associated with owning a group can be found here. If they are not followed by new group owners they will similarly lose the group as well as its perks.

    Donation
    I am going to give this its own spot in the announcement as it was a very generous donation. Authy has been the first person, since the beginning of the website to donate for the $100 medal. I just wanted to take an opportunity to once again thank you and everyone else for the support recently. It all massively helps in the future of the website.

    Top Chatter
    This has been the first month of bringing back top chatter and I would like to congratulate Goldie on winning. He managed to rack up 1,334 total chat messages. Placing himself 336 messages above the user in second place. I hope you enjoy the name color that is exclusive to the top chatters. It is of a golden color to represent being first and is the only three point gradient color on-site.

    Future Changes
    I want to keep everyone up to date with what I am planning on doing. I very frequently read through suggestions and although I don't reply/move them straight away, they are all very quickly took into consideration. If you do have something you'd like to suggest, please do so here as I love hearing feedback from the community.

    Although it is not currently in the works, sometime in the future I will be reaching out for partners to advertise and help group our community (however please do not message me regarding partnerships as I am still considering what actions I am going to take).

    On top of this, I am actively looking at various themes to visualize a new look for MCTrades. I will be having a designer create mockups which will be released so I can read over everyone's feedback before making any final decisions. If by chance one of the designs is favored, I will do my best to implement it as soon as possible.

    I do like the current look of our medals which can be seen here. However we have used them for a very long time and I cannot add more without keeping the exact style, so I am speaking with various artists to have the current medals re-designed and have new ones created which will not require donations to earn. Things such as being active and attending seasonal events.

    Name Color
    Just a side-note. The February name color has now been released and was made to represent valentines day, we hope you enjoy it. It can be viewed/purchased here.

    Sincerely,
    Anti

    The last one sold for $150. I'm more than happy to let each of these go for roughly $50. If not I'll lower them in a few days, no big deal.
