The following list shows all changes made within the last year. All entries are written by Scott Hardie.

January 19, 2019: I revised some text in previous tournaments. ("Eliminee" is not a word.)

January 14, 2019: In a wonderful illustration of Muphry's law, the theme "Addendums & Corrigendums" has been corrected; it is now called "Addenda & Corrigenda." Technically, the singular word addendum can be pluralized as either addenda or addendums, although the former is more common. But the singular word corrigendum is exclusively pluralized as corrigenda. I love the irony of this. :-)

November 12, 2018: The Shoot to Thrill tournament page now shows how many shots each player hasn't taken yet. That information was always available on the page if you counted victories, but now it's easy to check.

November 3, 2018: Sometimes artists are lost to players, such as those destroyed by an exclusive or converted into other artists. I fixed a bug that was leading to these lost artists still showing up in tournament concerts. Thanks for letting me know, Aaron!

October 7, 2018: The fall 2018 tournament has begun.

June 10, 2018: I have adjusted automatic concerts so that if you're playing with a risk of trade (not the None rule), it will not select exclusive artists from your collection, since you wouldn't have a say in risking them under the specific terms of that concert.

June 9, 2018: When a player claims an exclusive after achieving a rock block, all other copies of the artist are supposed to be destroyed, but a bug allowed those other copies to continue to show up in automatic concerts. I fixed it.

May 9, 2018: I fixed a bug preventing trade concerts from timing out when the winner did not select his/her winnings in time.

May 5, 2018: I fixed a bug in the chart view of Collection Guide that continued to show artists collected after they no longer existed (due to conversions, exclusives, etc).

April 28, 2018: I have revised for clarity some of the text around what happens when 0 artists are available to claim after victory in a trade concert because of unusual conditions, such as one player forfeiting the concert early.

March 4, 2018: I fixed a bug that erased ownership of the ten artists brought to a concert with the "have multiple copies of twenty different artists" trade rule, if that concert ended in a draw. The data from the concert where it happened should be correct now. (Sorry about that, Steve.)

February 17, 2018: I fixed a bug that briefly declared Steve West the winner of the winter 2018 tournament. The correct winner is Erik Bates. Congrats, Erik!

February 17, 2018: I fixed a bug reported by Matthew Preston (thank you!): In an Overtime concert, when the player has opted to hide previous rounds from view, and when the last turn of the previous round is a new artist that the player has not yet discovered, the player should not discover that artist upon visiting the concert, unless s/he clicks the link to show the hidden previous rounds.

February 13, 2018: I fixed a bug in the Hit Me With Your Best Shot tournament that would have allowed players to keep firing at targets after a champion was declared.

February 11, 2018: I fixed a bug with challenges not timing out correctly when there is a trade rule in effect.

Changes to Rock Block are sometimes mentioned on the Funeratic News page instead, when they're part of site-wide alterations.

Happy anniversary!
