This is just a brief update to the previous posting about the new BYOND version 499.
First off, if you are using this, you should grab the latest version (1191 at the time of this posting), always available at our Download page. We've fixed many bugs since the initial public release of 499.
Today we are doing an experiment, one I hope we can keep in perpetuity. Due to popular demand, we've decided to open up the full pager features (both individual pages and feed updates) to the whole of BYOND, both non-members and Members. We think the new paging system is pretty slick and hope you all get a chance to use it. If this ends up getting abused, we will unfortunately have to revoke it, so behave.
We've also added a "donate" option to the site & pager (on the site it is the new "Support BYOND today!" link in the upper-left. If you want to help us out, but don't have the means or desire to purchase a Membership, this is a way to contribute. Every penny helps (*actually it has to be more like 50 pennies since the merchant account takes some of it) and we really appreciate the contributions! I hope all of you understand what we've gone through to make BYOND possible. I even wrote a post about it! We'll be improving this display probably next week to give a better idea of where we're at financially and what we're looking for.
That's it for now. Happy gaming!
