    Hello Everyone!
    I hope you have all had a great Easter break and have settled back into school. I would also like to thank those who purchased last months exclusive name color, especially Lex for being the first person to (again kingpep).

    Small Changes/Fixes
    • Users may now like conversation messages.
    • Added some new "meme" emojis to the chat.
    • Changed the URL from "groups/list/" to simply just "/groups".
    • There were various other URL/slug changes made throughout the site to keep it consistent.
    • Fixed some issues with font awesome characters.
    • The referral contest banner had its color adjusted to match our theme.
    Obsidian
    As many of you may know we have had an "Obsidian" rank for a very long time which is earnt based on a certain amount of user activity. You may have also noticed that most users now do not have that rank. This is because I have made the decision to keep the Obsidian rank limited to those who do not have either Emerald or Diamond ranks.

    This may take some getting used to but I personally was not enjoying the number of banners some users had and to equal it out with the number of user groups we have I have changes the requirements so only those who cannot afford/do not have a donor rank can achieve Obsidian. (Donors already have the permissions of this group).

    Staff Changes
    It has been a long time coming, Moofie has done a phenomenal job handling chat, freeing me and the team up of a lot of time to focus on other things.
    • Moofie has been promoted to Moderator.
    Be sure to congratulate him!

    Awards
    I announced a few months ago that new medals were in the works, I recently found an artist that was capable of creating these for me. Over April we have discussed various designs and come to the decision on them. The new medals we have implemented are as followed:
    • Referral Winner (The winner of a referral contest)
    • Group Owner (Currently owns a user group)
    • 1 Year (Registered on MCTrades for 1 year)
    • 2 Years (Registered on MCTrades for 2 years)
    • 3+ Years (Registered on MCTrades for 3+ years)
    There may be more added onto this list in the future, I do have some ideas but I do not want to implement them at this time. The old ones I still being re-designed, it's a completely different style and may take some getting used to but we're seeing what works and what doesn't at the minute.

    If you wish to claim your yearly anniversary medals please make a ticket here.

    First Contest
    Throughout April we hosted our first referral contest, I wanted to once again personally thank Authy for going above and beyond to refer over 20 users to the website. He won the contest by a landslide. The winners are as follows:

    1) Authy
    2) Helium Alts
    3) sqlty

    You will all be contacted in regards to your prizes.

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

    Sincerely,
    Anti
