Hello!

As the new-ish Arch of Web I have the pleasure to inform you of a number of updates I have made to the official website. Here they are:

- We're finally 100% responsive and mobile-friendly. This is something I've wanted to fix for a long time, and finally I've had time to do it. So, the website should now work on all screen sizes and devices without looking odd. If you haven't noticed, a while ago Cotillion also adjusted the web client so you can play the game on mobiles and tablets too.

- The "GUILDS" section has been split into five individual pages, one for each guild type. The not very modern and on some devices buggy popups are gone and have been replaced by a more simple way to present our guilds, that requires less clicking or tapping. The information has also been updated and the new guilds have been added as well.

- The "COMMUNITY" section has been split into the three individual pages "RANKINGS", "WIZARDS", and "RESOURCES".

- The "RANKINGS" page is now, like the rest of the website, viewable on all devices. So, now you can finally check where you rank on your phone too, without it looking totally messy!

- The "WIZARDS" page has been completely redone, and now contains more useful information about the structure of wizards, the admin, and who does what. I felt that a lot of players don't really know any of this, and no wonder, since we don't tell them anywhere!

Also, and most importantly, you will also see the names of all active wizards, which positions they hold, which domain they belong to, etc. This information is automatically updated, and now uses data directly from the game, so in the future you can always visit this page if you want to know which wizards are in the admin, who's the liege of a domain, who works in the different domains, etc.

- The "RESOURCES" page has also been redone and cleaned up. The old links have been replaced with newer and more useful ones. Please let me know if you know of a good resource that you want me to add to this page.

- The "HISTORY" section is now the "ABOUT" section which contains individual pages for "HISTORY", "CONTACT", "PROMOTION" and "COPYRIGHT".

- The "HISTORY" page has been updated to cover the last three years of Genesis history. Since it was over three years since I wrote the original text, it felt like it was about time. Especially since it contain a lot of good things!

- The "CONTACT" page has a new and better contact form. (Thanks Cotillion).

- The "PROMOTION" page has been updated with some new information, so check it out and help promote Genesis.

- Our social media sharing buttons have been redone and moved to the bottom of every page. Feel free to use them whenever your want and share Genesis with your friends.

Finally, while I have of course tested and double-checked everything, hundreds of eyes is better than two, so if you find something that doesn't work like it should, a link that is wrong, typos, etc, please let me know and I'll fix it. Thanks!

Oh, and if everything still looks exactly like before and you don't see any of the changes listed above, please hit CTRL+SHIFT+R (Windows), or CMD+SHIFT+R (Mac) to force your cache to reload the page from the server.

Very cool to see the facelift in a few places. I especially like the resources on the promotion page.

Thanks, Cherek!
