Site adjustments

Nothing major, not really anyhow. I tweaked the member list page to show people's avatars on the list, as well as removing a few things we really did not need to see. Speaking of Avatars, on post pages, if you do no have an Avatar selected, you get the crying peon, as soon as you select one of your own (preferably one you made of a screenshot of yourself), the peon will go away. If you need help making an avatar for yourself, or want me to do it for you, let me know. I will either need a screenshot of you, or will have to see you in game and take a picture. Also on the member list page, the number of posts a person has is now a clickable link that will take you to a page with all those posts on it. Handy if you are trying to find a post by a particular person.

I will be tweaking the profile section soon (it's VERY tedious, because of how data is handled on the back-end) to add a few fields, and possibly remove some. I am planning on adding Race, Class, Level, and Profession fields. I think it would be handy info to have around so folks could check who does what. I will post an announcement when that goes live.

Another thing implemented today are ranks on the site. They correspond with the ranks in the guild in game, all save 'Friend', which is specifically for people NOT in the guild (yet?) that have joined us here.

Lastly, I really want to get the rest of the guild on here, I think it would be nice to have a little more activity here. That is part of the reason I added the Friend rank. I want other people we may talk to regularly in game to feel free to come here and chat away should they wish to do so.

As usual, any questions or comments, drop one here, or head to the forum.
