As many of you are probably aware, the forums are looking a little festive these days! Conor volunteered to dress the place up a bit and I'm very thankful to him for it.
- On all three themes, the MTG logo has been giving a Christmas-y candy cane feel.
- The base theme, MTG v2.0.1, now has a very festive header.
- We have a third theme now! Feel free to check out MTG v.2.0.1 - Insurgency.

In the past it's been requested that the admin and dev teams be more forthcoming about future updates; in the past we've pushed back against this because history has shown us that any discussion about upcoming plans usually gets turned into "promises" that are then held against us if those plans change or don't appear.

However, the point was made that by allowing a player to lazily end all chances of future roleplay with a bullet to the head after stealing a couple of bucks, we were already restricting roleplay and we were assisting the lazy end of the...
Good <insert your time of day here>, folks! Just a couple of quick rule updates so please pay close attention.
1.) Post disclaimers, where a player posts a link to something that would typically be against the rules but puts a disclaimer before the link, are not allowed. Trying to circumvent the rules like this will result in the same punishment you would have received if there were no disclaimer.
2. Abuse of VIP perks, where a VIP player and a non-VIP player arrange to have a non-VIP house /...
I really thought that this would be a "no duh" situation but apparently some people just can't wrap their heads around it. So, in the interest of being as painfully clear as possible:
IF YOU BUG ABUSE ON MTG, YOU WILL BE BANNED.
Bug abuse includes, but is not limited to: c-bug, g-bug, animation glitches, and pretty much any action that gives you unintended advantages. Found a way to avoid the AFK kick? Found a weird combination of keys that allows you move at run speed...
