International Discussions Newsletter - 3 December, 2018
It has been awhile since our last Newsletter. When we first established International Discussions, almost two decades ago, we wanted it to focus on writing at a level that made each Post a worthwhile read. We still try to keep that as the objective, however the internet is changing as well as our ability to meet the demands that would require even more time than what it currently takes to manage a Community.
We are focusing on more critical real life things at the moment but at the same time we want International Discussions to remain standing for what it was meant. That is to say… one of the last constructive forums where cultured input can be communicated on issues that affect us all. Therefore, we have used the last couple of months to:
1. Upgrade the Community to use PHP 7.2
2. Merge many Boards so there is less looking
3. Keep Role-playing Games simple using our in-house custom system
4. Removed many of the excess buttons and added an easier menu system
5. Made Threads searchable and more.
There is more to do, but they will come gradually over time. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the changes starting Here.

Very constructive notes :) haven't been a member for that long. But the community and moderators make it a very informative place to be. A harsh environment maybe, but it's always constructive, doesn't like naïvety and request on research and flexing of the mind.
