Upgraded to the new Shoutbox during downtime today.

Reworked the base of Nexus War to integrate with the forum's displkay better - folks should notice the game load MUCH faster.

Work on a few things has slowed since Nexus War was bought, but things are about to heat up again.

- Fixed an issue with the forum not recognizing several spiders. They are now properly identified as crawly things.
- The forum should properly recognize when users are viewing the FAQ/Guide section.
- Side panels now properly display in the FAQ/Guide section.
- Changed Article structure to help sort the backup data from the Old Wiki for access.
- Integration hooks added for New Wiki to make internal linking easier.
- Removed the 'Other Requests' app from GuildNet, as it is now redundant.
- GuildNet Moderation Change, Part One of Two: groundwork for GuildNet moderators to have Guild Board moderation privileges added automatically.

In preparation for larger changes to profiles made to address concerns with the new wiki:
- Integration hooks have been added to allow for direct linking between Profiles, Strongholds, Wiki, GuildNet, and Threads.
- The top right Profile menu has been completely reworked to showcase prominent features.
- Bookmarking has been added to help users keep track of threads you might reference often. You can find this in the top right menu.
- An easier buddy listing has been added to take advantage of Profile integration hooks. You can find this in the top right menu.
- A segment has been added to the Profiles section for listing where you've mentioned using the Mentions system.

I LOVE the new bookmarking! That's fantastic! Solves the issue of threads getting so easily buried, like the Jedi Field Reports and the Imperial War Room Docket!

- Fixed chat colors as previously requested.
- Fixed default chat image display.
- Fixed a bug that the previous bug fixed caused, leaving guest image sizes out of proportion, which caused uniquely uncomfortable issues with PMs in chat. This should be fixed. If you are still seeing image oddities in chat, clear your image cache.

- GuildNet Moderation Change, Part Two of Two: GuildNet moderators will find that they once again have moderator powers on their respective Guild Boards. Stickying, splitting, deleting, locking, moving, etc.
- Added a transfer so old Wiki pages can be PM'd.

- Fixed a bug preventing text within PM windows to be selected. Attempting to select text in PM windows for copy/pasting will no longer drag the PM windows. PM Windows are still drag-able by the top bar of the window.
- PM windows will no longer be able to be dragged outside the chat screen, causing unusual responses to chat sizing.

- The Profile section has been updated to include several user-editable hooks with the Wiki, Stronghold Listing, and GuildNet. These will be made visible in a later update.
- A user-editable OOC Notes section has been added to Profiles, to be in line with requests such as these.
- A user-editable Plots section has been added to Profiles, to showcase storylines players might be trying to promote. At current, this only showcases a single plot, but additions are being looked into to include more in the future.
- All of these updates are viewable under the "Edit Profile" page.
