    Primary Identity:
    As you may have noticed, we've made some miscellaneous updates to the site. A lot of these updates are small, but help improve the experience of the site. Over the course of the next few days, we will be making several more of these smaller updates to improve the site's usability. While none of these updates are major, such as the addition of a whole new feature, I feel they're noteworthy enough to discuss in an update thread and hopefully you will as well. Without further delay, here are the updates we've made:

    New Forums
    As requested by @Raijun in this thread, we have expanded The Forest in order to help organize things a little bit better. This expansion included the addition of five new discussion forums. In addition to creating the new forums, we have moved several threads from "Chit Chat" into them if they fit the targeted topics of the new boards. Don't worry though - there is a redirect for all the moved threads in Chit Chat for fourteen days so that people can get used to the thread's new location. The following discussion forums were added:
    1. Science, Math, & Technology
    2. Politics, Religion, & Spirituality
    3. Books, Music, & Art
    4. Television & Movies
    5. Games & Video Games
    Remodeled Library
    The Library is a place where users of Elder status on Kinmunity can submit articles for others to read. This area was an unwieldy beast in the past because it was handled by a clunky system separate from the rest of the site. This system was difficult to navigate, buggy, and unfriendly. Instead of using an entirely separate system for the library, it will now be treated by the system as another discussion forum. While the system treats the library as just another forum, it remains a fully powered articles system.

    New Resources Directory
    In a similar fashion to the library, the resources directory has been remodeled with a new submission system, yet it is still treated as a forum at it's core:

    More to come...
    Keep your eyes out for similar mini-updates which will be coming in the near future!
