    This is a closed thread for regular website updates.

    Restarting forums. Adding mods as they register. The Google Adsense ads are a necessary evil to fund our server operations cost - more than 70% of our traffic is to the forums. I'm barely eating real food as it is.

    There's a problem with cookies when users login via forum.notdstarcraft.com. I strongly recommend that everyone logins in via www.notdstarcraft.com/forum.

    Most key moderators and permissions should be live. I'm not sure how spambots are still getting through CAPTCHA. Black Ops members can now warn and effectively block most bots too.

    - Additional polishing to story, backstory and basic guide pages
    - Very simple AdWords campaign set up from 8-28 Feb 2012

    Google just gave us a some free AdWords credits. Going to use it for some light ads to drive traffic to our main NOTD website and Facebook page. I'm relatively new to this so I'm not good at all the optimization that the pros do. If you have any tips to share, please PM me.

    Huzzah! NOTD Forum now has a Quick Search Bar!

    The location for the advanced search can be found at the bottom of the page in the cleaned-up blue footer links. Enjoy! =D

    StarCraft 2 replays can also now be properly attached.

    Website traffic is up based on Google Analytics (the most reliable gauge). Alexa rankings, while not perfect, are a good proxy to work on too. We've increased our Alexa ranking from 6.3m in Dec'11 to 0.8m in Feb'12. There's still a long way to go as www.playsotis.com is at 0.2m ranking.

    I'm on Skype most of the time. You can reach me at darenyoong.

    Working with Blaqk to try to get some of the old archive data up in http://www.notdstarcraft.com/forumarchive. Will also need Blaqk's help to polish the main website once that is settled.
