I sincerely apologize for the things I've said/done which have made you feel like I've treated you nastily. That has never been my intention; very far from it. That incident of messing with your XP - that was supposed to be just "fun" and I wanted to bring some (positive) attention to your contributions. Apparently I miscalculated and I'm sorry.

It's true you never stated that Tidings is obsolete. But you've asked the question, rhetorically, more than once, and a reader might easily conclude that you believe Tidings is obsolete. Forgive me if I'm being overly sensitive, but I've put a lot of work into this site and I'm proud of it. I took your questioning of Tidings' status as an implication that I'm slacking.

The word "disused" appears nowhere in this thread until you wrote it.

"disuse" is the word you used here. You referred to that thread yourself.

Tidings was never meant to be a change log. Changing some wording here and there is not significant enough. Adding another IP to the block list is not significant enough. Adding a link to a help doc from a settings page is not significant enough. Changing the shade of green in the background of a button is not significant enough. Those are the sorts of changes that get discussed in PMD. And often that's all the documentation that's needed.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon staffed with 16,000 zombies.
