    - Time for a new changelog, as I finally get around to making a couple of changes to the site.
    Note: You can find the 2017 version here.

    - Upgraded the forum software to 1.5.17.
    Note: And soft-patched to 1.5.18.

    - Fixed the footer notice from 2017 to 2018 finally.

    - Updated the description of a couple of category names.

    - Updated my little todo list to get an overview of upcoming changes.

    - Uninstalled a couple of plugins that we're not going to use.

    - Made a proper manual backup of the website and database to offsite location.

    - Made some changes to the internal staff forums.

    - Prepared a -test- setup to play with prior to making any -live- changes.

    - Reviewed some categories and stand alone pages (and took notes)
    Note: They will be updated this Spring finally

    - More to come :) Welcome to 2018 everybody (I know, it's already March)

    NOTE PLEASE: In 2018 we're allowing people to comment in our changelog thread, unlike last year.

    March 15th, 2018:

    - Moved the donation button from the bottom of the site to the bottom of the frontpage side-bar.

    - Removed obsolete code that was rendering avatars and loading a couple where we weren't showing them.
    Note: This really helped with first-time page loads.

    - Removed a few outdated links from the bottom right part of the footer.

    - The copyright notice in the footer finally says 2018.

    - Disabled our Trending/ plugin that was hardly being used.
    Note: Maybe this Summer we finalize it and make it public.

    - Updated the Popular Content page to show active content from 2018 onwards.
    Note: It was 2017 by the way.

    - Finally got around to changing 'cookies' to 'Cookies' in the Help tab dropdown.

    - Removed the 'Community' and 'Sign up' buttons from the About page.
    Note: They're kinda obsolete and logs showed they were hardly being used.

    - Uninstalled a couple of plugins that were no longer in use.

    - Quickly glanced over the categories and forums list, and didn't have to make any significant changes.

    - A small update to the internal 'staff' forums so it's more '2018'.

    Finally, some todo items off my list, hopefully all for the better. Bigger changes probably coming later this Spring.

    Come post! :)

    - (temporary) removed inline post editing, you will now be brought to the full post editor instead. This is to address an issue with XenForo and Chrome 69's latest build. If you were unable to submit an edit to your post in the last 12 hours, please try again.

    - Prepared the server and software for an upcoming manual seasonal backup and maintenance, and potential forum software update. Nothing you will notice, but at least now you know we're not sitting still.

    - Created a sub-forum for information and vote-links for the Minecraft server.
