  • Welcome Letter goes live with today's update! When you have one set up, it is sent out to people when they have their access level to the site upgraded from public to member (or higher). To start using this, open your Control Panel and click Welcome Letter.
  • The Idle Monitor will now let Super Admins know who received warnings for inactivity, and who was automatically disbanded.
  • The Mass Move functionality in the forums editor is now working correctly.
  • $block[variable] tags now work correctly in mods.

It lets mod authors use variables that are replaced at render time, like $block[userlevelname] and $block[userhandle].

Can we get that changed or at least the option of having it go to their GuildPortal email?  That makes more sense.  They just applied to your site GuildPortal and SHOULD be returning to GuildPortal to see if they were accepted.  At that time, they can read the email - on GuildPortal.

I agree having the option to send it to both (if possible) would be a really great addition and ensure they see it.

Could we get the ability to customize the notification email sent when we confirm someone for an event, too?  Currently, the message sent says something like "your status has been changed to confirmed".  I'd like to be able to add in specifics like voice chat information, a reminder of which supplies to bring, etc.
