Intro: Sorry, folks. It's been a while but we'll get this started again. Periodically we'll be releasing a forum newsletter to discuss the latest news and changes on NF. The goal with this is to open more channels of communication between the staff and the rest of the community. We'll be releasing this monthly, within a week of the 15th every month. Go to Issue 1→ Go to official navigation→ MAJOR SITE NEWS/CURRENTLY IN THE WORKS Along with being more regular with the Newsletter (this is my fault - @baconbits ) we'll also be posting a forum discussion thread to get more input on what you think about the newsletter and what you think should go into the next one. XENFORO/MBXX RELATED NEWS The way rep works has changed: 1 rep power = 2,000 reputation 1 rep power = 25 posts 1 rep power = 2 days joined 1 rep power = 1 trophy point As per usual we're open to any suggestions on how to make rep and ratings work better.
