Every Sunday the Shadowness staff gets together and we have a staff meeting. Meng runs down the list of new features that he's crafted in his mad scientist's laboratory with Renyn cackling madly in the back-ground as the staff nods in aquiescence. Lol.
Actually, we have votes, discussions and some arguments over what direction is best for the site, what will help the community thrive and what will help us continue to grow!
If any of you have any questions, comments or suggestions, this is the place to share them. We don't do anything without getting feedback from the community!
Right now the Community is exploding with activity! We've got massive new features for the last 3 weeks and just wait 'til you see all the new awesome that Meng's been working on! Thanks to everyone for making Shadowness BOOM!
