In which James talks about recent changes to the site, once again copy/pastes a change-log, and talks about upcoming coding-related things on the horizon.
Time for another report from your friendly neighborhood Seneschal with the latest site-related facts and tidbits.
Below is a list of most of the code check-ins done to the site since my last report. This is a non-exhaustive, automatically generated list, and does not contain code changes that have not yet been deployed to the main website, nor does it list code changes that are outside the scope of the main website.
Here are some highlights:

This section provides some sneak previews of upcoming site changes and the larger things on the Seneschal Office's todo-list in various stages of completion, in no particular order.
Status: ▮▮▮▮▮▮▮▮▮▮ (On hold pending some GFX items from the Herald)
*An effort by the SA staff to streamline the organization of the Shadow Academy and make it easier to get to and find information, and to create a more focused new member experience. *
This is done on the coding side. The only thing left to roll out is a revamp of the SA landing page that will replace the current "Message from the Headmaster". This new landing page will feature some GFX that's currently being worked on by Vyr and his staff.
Status: ▮▯▯▯▯▯▯▯▯▯ (On hold until after GJW)
Integration of Possessions Items with Dossier Graphics.
Coding has not yet been started, but Vyr and I have brainstormed a lot on how this is going to work. I'm probably picking this up after the GJW.
Possessions: Item Upgrades
Status: ▮▮▮▮▮▯▯▯▯▯ (On hold pending content)
A proposal to implement Upgrades, which basically can be described as pre-written aspects provided by the Regent Staff (members can't submit custom versions), that don't necessarily need to have a downside like regular Item Aspects.
This is currently on hold at Evant's request until the Regent staff has enough decent content to drop into this feature. Once this is the case, this should be fairly easy to implement as we can leverage the existing Item Aspect infrastructure.
Status: ▮▮▮▮▮▯▯▯▯▯ (On hold pending Society Development)
A new Society to provide our artistically capable members with a new outlet of creativity and activity.
This is currently on hold until the final details, point values and rewards for the society have been worked out. Once this is done, translating everything into Promotheus rules should be fairly easy.
Recruitment Incentive System
Status: ▮▮▯▯▯▯▯▯▯▯ (Brainstorming)
Additional incentives to recruit your friends to the Brotherhood
This is currently in the brainstorming phase. See the latest GM report for more information.
