There has been some drama. Zultar is no longer co-owner. There are some new features. The advertising spambots are getting weirder. PPSC has still not been re-introduced.

All I know about the new features is that they can be turned off or ignored without too much hardship. Although every now and then I press something unwise and a hideous monstrosity of a map projectile vomits its way over my phone screen...

I'd actually forgotten the Zultar thing had happened. The day to day existence of the site is largely unchanged. It was a sad day, though. Zultar, for all his faults, was unquestionably dedicated to the site and acted predominantly or completely in what he considered to be its best interests.

The most relevant new feature (the one Octavious and in general we older webdippers dislike) is the point-and-click interface. It only exists for Classic, not for the variants, and you can choose if you want it or the vintage UI somewhere in your profile settings.

Not only Zultar, also Bo and Jmo left the site (or at least quit as admins/devs)

Nothing important happened.

That's a nice feature! If i decide to play a game again some time in the future, i will try that!
And sad to hear that they did quit as admin/devs :(

Welcome back! I'd say main thing is we've got AI bots now, zultar's reign of terror is over (j/k), otherwise not much has changed

There was some.. unpleasantness.. the word genocide was getting thrown around a fair bit.. this and that, I wouldn't worry about it..

edit: Of course the point and click interface, that'd be the main change I'd say. It's pretty nifty

And I am also sad they quit as admin/devs, but onwards and upwards
