August 24, 2004
The changes that were made to the program are in response to the crashes that occurred over the weekend. The new updates should address the underlying issue and will stop any of these problems from causing trouble or downtime in the future.
Those players that are encountering issues should look to their /gms screen where there is now a section titled Community Relations. This area will deal with all suggestions and complaints and a user can leave a message at any time. The role of the sentinels and mentors is still in place and these people should still be contacted for issues that fall under their responsibility.

An Update from The Realm reporter
Did anyone see the eclipse that happened earlier today. It was normal at first, with everything going dark, but when the light came back to normal, there was something amiss. Maybe it is just a personal feeling, but there is definitely an evil presence after the eclipse came back. However, everything seems to be on an even keel at the present moment.

Update for Friends and Enemies
The tab for Friends has been renamed so that users can now access their enemies as well as their friends. In addition, there is the possibility to put a permanent ignore ban on a player. To address the use of these new functions, the URL policy for the Norseman has been rewritten and has extra clarity in regarding these issues. To access the new statement, a player will need their username and password and it can be found in both the In Development area as well as the Announcements board.

The scroll bars have regained their functionality for players that use the normal window skin of the program. A new feature is the Who List that will tell a player have many other users are currently in action on a given server. Because the invasion that came from the direction of The Mists has been repelled, all of the areas have reverted to their condition prior to the invasion. Players looking for new areas will be happy to note that the maps of The Downs and in the Wexfordshire Valley have been extended to make the overall map complete. Minotaurs are living in the areas that were part of the invasion from The Mists. In addition, shops have been set up in the Wilderness are are now ready to do business with customers traveling in the area.
