(Everything facebook related)

DDO and facebook are two different worlds for me and I keep them that way. Others may like this but I could care less for it.

Thanks Suzanne for the announcement. And thank you Juggle.

While I'm happy for all aspects of the update, I'm particularly happy that we could get the RFD limit increased. This is something the community has been saying for awhile and it will certainly improve things.

In addition to what is mentioned in the OP, I think its worth mentioning a couple of things that I have been discussing with Juggle the are behind the scenes updates, but no less significant to the overall quality of the site.

In the past couple months members have been contacting me to verify their accounts when they could not verify otherwise. This is usually due to a lack of a phone number to use, having a carrier that isn't able to be used for verification, or being in a foreign country, among other reasons. Up until now, I have had to check the accounts for qualifications and then contact Juggle to have them do this, which could make the process take several days or even longer.

This verification process has now been made a function of the admin site and should make verification for members a much quicker process.

The second update involves another additional option in the admin site that gives the moderators the ability to remove a members voting privileges. This is something I have thought was needed for quite awhile and am happy that rather than having to ban members who refuse to comply with proper voting conduct, a temporary removal of their voting privileges can be done instead. This will naturally only take place when its entirely appropriate, after a member has been warned and explained proper voting conduct, and when the repeated conduct of the voter makes it necessary.

Once again, thank you Juggle for all of these updates, and all of your hard work.
