Happy April Fools everyone! I can't believe we got you again, even when you knew we were going to do something :) Just for the record there was no lawsuit, there were no banners, and we didn't need to know what your graphics card was.
Looking forward to next year!

Lookup and Storefront Application (posted 6:23)
We have decided it's best to have everyone fill out an application for their lookups and storefronts. That way, we can verify if the images violate copyright infringment laws. This may appease the people that are threatening lawsuit, as well. I don't have time right at the moment, but a friend set up this website with our new Copyright Policy, and an application for your lookup and storefront codes. Sorry for any inconvenience. The website is here http://www.freewebs.com/grophlandapp/

Copyright Issues (posted 15:07)
It is with some regret that I have to announce that Grophland is having some financial issues right now. This is due to problems with copyright infringement on the part of users that is costing us money for legal expenses. I am not sure exactly how we will be responding to these problems, I'm busy thinking of answers right now.
For the moment we may have to suspend lookups and shop descriptions, and I wouldn't be surprised if we had to introduce some form of advertising to help fill the funding gap. I do appologise for this. I'll keep people updated when I know more.

Signatures (posted 6:13)
Signatures now cannot have text bigger than 13 pixels. This is to get rid of annoying forum signatures in huge text.
Also there is a new preference in the User Details to turn off the viewing of Grophmail signatures as well as forum ones
