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

October 16, 2021: I fixed a bug in which, after a trade concert timed out due to inactivity, the winner was not being notified via subscription data that s/he had a reward to claim.

August 10, 2021: The sidebar will no longer advise you that inactive players are online and available to play. (Thanks for letting me know, Erik!)

April 27, 2021: The play rule unlocked when you "have one artist of each rank in your label" has been made less likely to come up in automatic concerts due to its tendency to take over the game.

April 4, 2021: I fixed a bug that sometimes prevented exclusives for extending for another six months when risked in a trade concert. I also restored the one exclusive artist (an R10) that was lost to this bug in the last six months. The two players (Aaron and Steve) who should not have had a copy of this artist were granted 10 ranks of new artists as a replacement for their now-destroyed copy of it. I'm sorry for this mistake, to all affected players.

March 10, 2021: I fixed a broken link in the tournament page. Thanks for pointing it out, Chris!

March 8, 2021: The spring 2021 tournament has begun: "Is This the World We Created?"

February 10, 2021: I fixed a bug reporting the wrong number of artists in possession of each player at the end of a concert with a specific trade rule (unlocked via "Win five consecutive concerts"). The bug had no effect on trades or concert outcomes; it only affected the number displayed on the page. Thanks to Erik for pointing it out.

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

Is This the World We Created? (last comment: September 8, 2021)
"I'm pleased to announce a Rock Block tournament for the spring: Is This the World We Created? It's a copy of the Woodstock tournament from 2019, this time based on the massive Live Aid benefit concert in 1985 that raised money and attention for famine relief in Africa." more…
