The Return of the Bottom Bar


3:03 am - HPfanextrm


As many of you know, the bottom bar was removed some time ago because it was believed to be the source of a serious problem that slowed down HEX for nearly everyone. Even though it was removed, there still was no immediate significant increase in speed that we expected. A month or so ago, though, one of the main problems causing HEX to slow was found and fixed. (You should all thank Steven for that.)

So, we're up for giving it another try. It may be enabled or disabled as before at the Preferences page. Everyone who previously disabled or enabled it should find the setting has not changed. We'll be monitoring it's impact on the server and the database and decide whether or not it can stay permanently. Consider this another trial run.

You should also be aware that two other old features that disappeared over time have found their way back. You will now see a counter of unread owls in parentheses next to the Owlpost link on the left sidebar. This is a feature that has come and gone more than once years ago. Interdepartmental Memos will also function again as they previosuly did.

Lastly, be sure to check out the new site layout, Morsmordre, courtesy of Xeneixian.
