Outage
We had a ten-minute outage caused by a database server going down, causing some of the user data to be unavailable. The site should be back up and restored to 100% functionality at this point.

Once more, with feeling
Fixed a bunch of bugs that showed up only on production yesterday. Final version of code is out and everything is looking good for launch really soon. We'll be metering people in, so you may have to be a little patient.

Please understand that per our announcement last week, you'll need to construct your Navigation Rudder before embarking on your journey: this requires 10 wooden surfboards, 5 red and blue (each) tribal surfboard fish, 100 insects, and a "Helmsman's Domain" item.

(Hah! Just kidding about the Navigation Rudder -- event will be open to all as we meter people in).

Rally and Town Changes
A bunch of scripting exploits have been fixed in Rallies and are currently being fixed in Towns. We're hoping that this stops most of the name forgery / vortexes / statue exploits.

Photobucket fixed
A change on the Photobucket side resulted in people being unable to post in guilds -- we've put a temporary fix in place.

Arrows in Towns
The < and > are back in towns / rallies.

To be honest, we were astonished at the outcry that arose from this bug -- apparently, the symbols are critical to discourse in Towns and Rallies.

People are exchanging code snippets? Playing cowboys and indians? Trying to make ASCII Christmas trees? Who knows!
