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

March 17, 2019: I fixed the width of artist modals on small screens. (They were opening too wide after the change on March 9.)

March 9, 2019: External links in artist modals now open new browser windows, like all other links on the site.

March 9, 2019: Artist modals are now wider on large screens.

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.

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