Hello all. There has been quite some rework going on in the forums lately, and here are some news:

New Homepage

Well, about time! The main domain https://median-xl.com finally has something in it. It will be the introduction screen to anyone new to Median, the latest news will be displayed and some nice addons such as a random MXLS teaser and a livestreams module. A proper homepage was a much needed requirement for the release of the biggest Diablo II modding project ever.



Header / Navbar Rework

There used to be funny banners for each subdomain in the past, however due to their randomness and in some cases not fitting the new color scheme, they have been removed. However, the site's black background has been replaced with an actual background - and you can expect these to change occassionally.



New Sitemap

A new sitemap has been added to the site - this is basically the same as a navigation menu, but this one goes in the footer. It will provide useful links and a nice overview of the site in general. Sadly, the Documentation site uses a prehistoric layout so unfortunately neither the new header or sitemap are there.



Theme Rework

The new site's theme has received some updates, focused mainly on consistency across all subdomains. As a result, the TSW site has been simplified, and several pages such as changelog, terms of service and tools pages have been reworked as well.



New Registration Process

Another new thing is that the phpBB registration process has been replaced. There have been massive amounts of bots in the last months - and this is an attempt to stop it. Note however that we cannot stop manual spam - so sorry about that. Continue to report spam threads so we can get rid of them as fast as possible.



Forum Ads

Creating the appropriate infrastructure for MXLS is not a simple - nor cheap - process. We are looking to upgrade about all of our servers, be it the forum or PVPGN. Additionally we are going to release our own Median XL Launcher / Updater app - and get rid of ModDB dependency. So we will also be getting a paid Content Network to host the 300MB Median XL patch. We understand that not everyone can donate, so we are introducing ads for those who want to whitelist us on Ad Blockers and support us a bit that way.



Median XL wouldn't be able to exist without this great community, so thanks everyone for making this possible. We are going to make Diablo great again!
