Well a fine how-do to you, fine readers. Welcome to the shiny new design for ASP! I have unpublished all previous news entries, so here's a fresh start. There's still plenty of aesthetic tweaks/additions left, but all functionality is good to go. Considering how much you crazies seem to be itching to see some new stuff, I decided to go live with this now, and let you see the new site layout goodies pop up as I finish them (you're excited). You'll notice some nice new features, like being able to comment on news posts and fan art, and ASP's own built-in chatroom. On that note, to keep out bots and keep things civil and organized, I must also note that in order to contribute to the community in these ways, you need to make an account. Good news is that even if you don't have an account, you're still allowed to look at all comments and even check the chatroom. Neato!
It may not look like a huge difference, but the site was built from scratch, with completely redone functionality and a brand new content management system -- Everything is wonderfully simplified for me now! Having just put this live, please let me know if you have any trouble with something, if something is broken, or you just want to share your thoughts. Let the fun begin. ;)
