To help out with some behind the scenes stuff here at the Compendium, and because he's been so helpful already in organizing the Dream Splash and encouraging participation here in the forum, I've decided to make Boo the Gentleman caller an admin as well.

So please welcome our newest Compendium staff member!

Woohoo! Thanks!

If anyone knows how to add a custom .gif to a rank, let me know. I have a custom file or two for winners of 2018 Dream Splash.

Speaking of the Dream Splash, skylark and PrincessNadia have mentioned on the Compendium Discord that they're now missing some categories on the forum list with their new ranks.

Yeah, Kodokami mentioned that he'd learned that the custom rank removed old ranks (which need to manually be re-added). I think he's fixed it; if not, ya'll let me know and I can take a stab at fixing it.

I can neither confirm nor deny, since I kept my Guru rank.

Yeah, still working on fixing it. Skylark's issue is a bit trickier, since they've been around awhile and thus likely had previous unique ranks.

PrincessNadia may have the opposite issue: I accidentally gave her new rank the ability to see every forum section. I'm still looking into it to see if that's really the issue however.

Slightly off topic, but I did wanted to give a few updates that results from me having become a mod...

1.) I am also now a mod on reddit on r/chronotrigger. There was a severe lack of moderation going on (toxic, racist spam posts that hadn't been removed in over two days) -- mostly due to current mods having become inactive -- so I asked what the deal was and we discussed moderatorship. I hope to utilize this as a linkage back to the Compendium in the future, including in future advertisements (ie Chrono Cross Symphonic) and future Compendium events.

2.) I have removed the "thread necromancy" warning in order to better demonstrate that we don't mind thread necromancy. It used to exist on threads without posts for 180 days. The thread message couldn't be edited (I was hoping to make commend about thread necromancy being okay), but this is better than nothing.

3.) I have also removed the 180 second limit for posting (for the time being). The spam bots have died down for the time being, so I have edited the limit to 60 seconds. Should we have additional problems in the future regarding bots, we may have to increase it to 120 or 180 seconds as before.

Feel free to let me know if there are questions.

Thanks!
