New Release: The Archive

The Archive

This release introduces The Archive, moving all the posts from before "the collapse" to a separate section of the site. Posts in The Archive are locked: no voting, no editing, no commenting. Posts can be recovered from The Archive by crossposting them to other sectors.

The Archive also introduces linkFilter's first NPC: Cando 99-30. Cando manages The Archive and will soon start offering bounties for activities involving all those old posts.

Crossposting

This release also introduces crossposting. Any post can be crossposted to another sector. The original post creator gets awarded XP as well as the person crossposting. You can crosspost your own posts too, but you won't get double XP.
