Hey, just letting you all know that the site now features a brand new theme that’s similar in format to the previous theme but different in some aspects, like the accent, menu behaviour and more. Note that this is a soft-launch and may get reverted back to the previous theme that is being currently used. No opening date has been planned yet.
I’ve got some chores and other things that I need to finish up while I also catch up to some smaller but important Crash tidbits that need to be posted. I hope y’all ok with some patience and slow down since I’ve got some heavy academic work and exams to do later in the month. This isn’t a break or anything, but just so you know that I might slow down the rate of posting at any time during this month.
