Added several new icons for usergroups and various areas on the site.
Renamed Support Team to Expert.
This decision was made largely because the name suggested that members of this group were obligated to provide support. The actual purpose of Experts is to distinguish authenticity from copy/pasted responses or un/educated guesses. Experts will retain some of the moderation privileges that the group originally had but are no longer considered a part of our team and are merely users who have proven to possess a fair amount of knowledge for any of our supported software.
Renamed Uploader to Contributor.
Name, icon, and color are subject to change.
"Uploader" just didn't fit in the context of how the role was used.
New Staff Role: Designer
Designers will have access to themes exclusively, no moderation abilities. Their responsibilities include enhancements to our layout, branding, etc.
New Staff Role: Developer
Developers will oversee technical aspects such as troubleshooting site errors, modifying and creating apps/plugins, or assisting with general "coding".
Automatic Moderation has been enabled. Content that is reported for spam by five (5) unique members will be hidden and marked for review by moderators.
We've overhauled our non-donator ranks based on the current landscape and usability.
We've added two new ranks: Novice and Immortal.
"Advanced Members" has been renamed to "Veteran".
"Legendary" has been shortened to "Legend".
Massive increase to download speeds.
Substantially reduced wait times before downloading as well as reducing flood control on searches.
Several ranks now have an increased number of daily downloads.
Legend and Immortal now have access to features like animated profile photos, cover photos, and signatures.
